Shelter Dog Gets Hollywood Treatment

ThumbnailOn Saturday night one of our Animal Rescue League of Boston shelter dogs had a fairy tale evening. Wren, a 5-month-old pup, spent Saturday evening at the Wilbur Theatre with actor, comedian and animal lover Janeane Garofalo. From the moment that Wren stepped foot in the theatre she was treated like a star. The Wilbur staff showered her with affection. What’s incredible is that just two weeks ago, Wren was living a life of neglect, tied to an outside porch without food or water. She was very skinny and starved for attention. Despite her hardships, Wren is a very sweet dog and felt very comfortable in the arms of Janeane Garofalo. Janeane, a pit pull dog mom herself, said that if she could, she would gladly take Wren on the train back home with her! Janeane is a huge supporter of animal welfare organizations and a friend to the Animal Rescue League of Boston. She was even so kind as to discuss the work of the League in the first 5 minutes of her show.

Wren is currently waiting for her forever home at the League’s Boston branch. If you’re interested in meeting this sweet girl you can give us a call at 617.426.9170 or stop by our Boston Adoption Center!

A special thank you to Janeane Garofalo for her kindness to Wren and the League’s staff. Also a huge thank you to the wonderful people at The Wilbur Theatre (especially Bill and Taylor Blumenreich and Andrew Mather) for always being so supportive of the Animal Rescue League of Boston. We hope to see you all again soon, stop by the shelter any time for a tour!
