Welcome to PAL: Helping animals one at a time..... Who we are: Promise Animal League, Inc. was formed for the  prevention of cruelty to animals and educational  purposes by a group of individuals who have been  helping animals in the local community for over 25  years.  Our group of dedicated volunteers provides a  small pet food bank for other shelter and rescue  groups in the four state area. In addition Promise Animal League (PAL) owns and  operates a licensed veterinary practice in Boonsboro  Maryland.  Our low cost clinic is open by appointment  for surgeries and is available to everyone regardless of  income, location or if you are a shelter or rescue group.   PAL currently has two licensed veterinarians.
