Update Monday, June 8, 2020: Our shelter is open to visitors and resuming regular hours. Welcome back! When you arrive, you will notice that we’ve put a few new procedures in place to help keep our visitors, staff and volunteers safe. There will be a limit of how many people can enter the shelter at one time. Staff, volunteers and visitors are required to wear face masks at all times. We ask that you practice social distancing and stay at least 6 feet apart from each other. Good hygiene is in your hands! Please wash and sanitize regularly.

We have begun to open up our re-homing and adoption program so you will see more animals available for adoption soon. Our staff and animals are really looking forward to seeing you again! If you have any questions, please contact us at info@rispca.com or 401-438-8150.

 

Adopting at the Rhode Island SPCA

Matchmaking is what we love to do. We do our very best to find the best fit for the pets awaiting adoption at the Rhode Island SPCA. The first step to adopting a dog from the Rhode Island SPCA is filling out an adoption application. If your application is selected, you will be contacted and asked if you would like to schedule a meet & greet. Because of the volume of applications we receive, sometimes we can only respond to the selected applicant. You are always welcome to contact us anytime about the status of your application.
