The first step to adopting a pet from the Rhode Island SPCA is filling out an adoption application. Applications can be submitted in person, via email, mail or fax (401-438-8154).
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.
