Holiday wishes from Petco
Once again, Petco is making Holiday Wishes come true! The Petco Foundation wants to make holiday wishes come true for deserving animal welfare organizations, like the PET REFUGE, throughout the country during their 2016 Holiday Wishes Grant Campaign, in partnership with Petco.

The PET REFUGE could earn a lifesaving grant up to $100,000 when one of our adopters tells the story of how their adopted pet changed their life for the better.

Click on the link below for the rules of the contest. Anyone who has adopted from the PET REFUGE can submit their stories until October 15, 2016 at 11:59 p.m. CST. However, we encourage you to submit your story early to assure your story is guaranteed for review.

Any questions? Just ask us and we will try and help you. Also, if you have friends, family, co-workers who have adopted from our shelter, encourage them to try their hand at writing about their cat or kitten. The more who enter this contest, the better our chances to win. THANK YOU.


Attention all dog lovers!
The Pet Refuge is now working towards our long-held goal of housing dogs at our shelter. Since we first opened, and especially these last few years, the Pet Refuge has been overwhelmed with cats and kittens that no one else will take. Because we are a true no-kill shelter many people turn to us to save these abandoned animals. A lot of our finances and efforts are spent caring for these unwanted animals until we can get them into loving forever homes. Now that the Pet Refuge is an established shelter, we would like to expand our efforts to include helping rescue dogs.

We're looking to start a committee - a group of people to start fundraising and then helping to finish this project. This would include erecting an 8-foot fence, already donated and enough to fence in the entire animal and exercise areas.

If anyone is interested in helping us in any way, or if you know people who would like to get on board to help make our dreams a reality, please call Renate at the shelter at (401) 294-1115 or email her at animalz@cox.net (animalz@cox.net) to set up a meeting and a tour of the facility.
