Alert: Door-to-door solicitations scam

posted on Friday, May 14, 2021 in News

In recent days, the Animal Rescue League has received reports that individuals have approached people's homes selling items and claiming the proceeds will benefit the ARL. The ARL has never collected door-to-door donations, and we also do not collect donations over the phone, so anyone claiming to do so is not doing it with our consent.

The safest and most secure way to donate to the ARL is directly through several payment options via our website ( or in person or by mail at our main location (5452 NE 22nd St., Des Moines, IA 50313).

We are proud to be a part of such a caring community and are grateful to those who reported this concerning activity
