Don't miss out on an event! Check out the what, when, and where on our Events page so you can plan ahead to participate.

We are looking for items for our next three fundraisers and are seeking donations. Approximately 3 weeks before Easter, which falls on April 5th this year, we will be selling gift baskets and plants at the North Kingstown Animal Hospital. The following week we have our Easter Bazaar at Cold Spring Community Center followed by the Pasta Dinner at Gillian's Ale House in North Kingstown.

We are looking for people to make up gift baskets for us; first we need new or gently used wicker baskets or pretty containers, people to donate items to help us make up these baskets and gift items and certificates for the baskets and also the silent auction portion of our fundraisers.

If you have any questions, please give the shelter a call at (401) 294-1115 or email our manager Renate at animalz@cox.net (animalz@cox.net).

Also, be sure to check out our Facebook page.

If anyone is interested in helping out with two of our upcoming fundraisers - the PASTA DINNER and the EASTER BAZAAR, let Renate know. She would like to know if perhaps we could have a fundraising meeting this coming Saturday (March 14th), around 4 pm at the shelter. You may call the shelter at (401) 294-1115 or email Renate at animalz@cox.net (animalz@cox.net) if interested. 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.
