Anarchy Animal Rescue
Anarchy Animal Rescue was founded in December of 2010 out of need and desire to help address two major animal crises in this country: unwanted adoptable pets and the mistreatment and abuse of animals due to puppy mills. Our goal is to find good homes for as many pets as we can take in, care for medically and place in responsible homes.
