Adoptable Dogs

Adoptable Cats

Adoptable Small Animals

We do our best to find the ideal home for the pets awaiting adoption at the RISPCA. Some of the animals here have special needs and may not be a good fit for everyone. Because of this, applications are considered on a “best fit” not “first come” basis. The first step to adopting a pet from the Rhode Island SPCA is filling out an adoption application.

If your application is selected, you will be contacted and have the chance to visit the shelter and interact with the pet outside of their cage before you and the RISPCA make a final decision. Because of the volume of applications we receive, only the selected applicant is contacted. However, feel free to contact us about the status of your application at any time.

All Cat, Kitten, Dog, and Puppy Adoptions Include:

  • Distemper Combo Vaccine
  • Rabies Vaccine and Tag
  • Flee/Tic/Ear Mite Treatment and Nail Trim (if needed)
  • De-worming and Heartworm Testing
  • Spay/Neuter (if animal is not of age to be spayed/neutered there will be a spay/neuter deposit)
  • 1 Free Wellness Exam (at participating veterinary office)
  • Free Up Country Collar and Leash of your choice
