This snorty little lovebug is Angel. She’s a perfect 54 lbs of short-legged chubb and was made to snuggle. Give her a second on the couch and she’s yours. She’ll be on her back smiling ear to ear and demanding belly rubs in a hot second.

This little love has quite a tale to share. She was found alone on the streets of East Greenwich. Animal Control picked her up and seeing that she was in medical distress immediately brought her to Ocean State Veterinary Specialists. The RISPCA was called and she was transferred to our shelter where our Director of Shelter Medicine, Dr. Seth Finger V.M.D. performed an emergency spay. She has been recovering comfortably with one of our dearest foster care volunteers.

Angel is now ready for adoption and she’s on the lookout for her very own loving people. Her best fit will be in a moderately active, fun-loving home with adults or families with dog-savvy children. We’re not sure how she feels about other pets but she has such a laid-back personality that we’re open to talk!

Few other fun facts…she could enter (and probably win) ANY snoring contest, she has the most adorable waddle walk and is a canine garbage truck…she eats EVERYTHING so keep those snacks off the low tables! She also loves her stuffed animals and snuggles with a whole crew of them.

Adoptions and meet & greets are being conducted by appointment only since our shelter is currently closed for visitors. You are welcome to fill out an application or you can email us at with any questions. Thank-you!

Can’t adopt but still want to help our shelter animals in a thoughtful way?

Once you make your gift, we’ll add your name below to show your support! Proceeds allow us to continue to provide our current and future animals with safe and warm shelter, toys and treats, enrichment and training, medical care, and lots of love.
