Rhode Island SPCA

We speak for those who cannot speak for themselves


September 30th: Our cat room is temporarily closed as many of them are suffering from an upper respiratory infection (similar to the common cold) which is contagious to other cats.  Please check back next week after they have had a few days to rest and feel better! Thank you for understanding.

YouAreTheirVoiceWelcome to the Rhode Island SPCA, the 3rd oldest humane organization in the United States. At over 145 years old, we are the only non-profit animal rescue organization in the state of Rhode Island that is legally able to investigate and prosecute animal cruelty cases.

The RISPCA is charged with the sole purpose of protecting animal life in all situations that might endanger them. We are dedicated to crusading for the rights and welfare of all animals, great and small, through legal, educational, legislative and investigative means.

The RISPCA is a thriving community of staff members, volunteers, supporters and the animals in our care. We welcome and thank you for your involvement!
