Buy and sell on eBay for Pet Refuge
Pet Refuge is now part of the eBay Giving Works program. So, you can support our mission when you buy and sell on eBay. You can also make a one-time donation. Here's how:

You can find whatever you're looking for on eBay – from baseball cards to new cars and more. When you do, shop for items that benefit us. You can get a great deal and support the Pet Refuge at the same time!

You can also support the Pet Refuge when you sell on eBay. Just designate our organization to receive 10-100% of your final sale price the next time you list something great.

Did you know that charity listings often get more bids and higher prices than regular eBay listings? Boost your sales and support our critical work while you’re at it! Plus eBay gives back to you too, with a fee credit on your basic selling fees!

Scratch 'n Bits
Imperial Cat is making it easy for the Pet Refuge to receive donations of Scratch 'n Bits scratching pads! Scratching allows cats to stretch and tone their muscles and helps alleviate stress. Scratch 'n Bits are available in three sizes that are purr-fect for use in cat cages and cat rooms. Prices are $25-$30 per case with free shipping.

NEW for 2014 is the added option to purchase a bulk bag of 36 catnip toys for $30 with free shipping. The toys are made from durable, long-lasting materials and are stuffed with premium organic catnip.

If you'd like to donate a case of Scratch 'n Bits to the Pet Refuge, visit the Imperial Cat website. Note that you must provide our address when checking out: 500 Stony Lane, North Kingstown, Rhode Island 02852. 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.
