Adopt a Pet


December is the month of giving and we would love to give our current residents homes for the holidays! It’s a bit RUFF for the dogs to spend the holidays in kennels, and our cats think that what we’re about to tell you is PURRRFECT!

Our first bit of magnificent news is that our adoption fee specials are so awesome you’re not going to believe we’re FUR-REAL:

Adult Dogs are $75.00                 Senior Dogs (8yrs+): Adoption fee is waived

Adult Cats are $25.00                  Senior Cat (10yrs+):  Adoption fee is waived

Our second part of the December Promo includes some PAWSOME extras for each adoption! For each animal adopted, they will receive your choice of:

3 months of Flea/Tick Treatment  -OR- Microchip

So come on down and check out all of our cats, dogs and small animals and take advantage of our wonderful promo for the month of December only!


Animals end up in shelters for a wide variety of reasons – economic distress, home foreclosure, illness to the owner, inability to properly care for the animal, changing family dynamic, and many others – but the goal is the same for each and every one: to find the perfect new home! One of the primary missions of the Rhode Island SPCA is to find good homes for animals in need, and to provide care and support to those animals while they wait for their new family. Your donations make it possible for us to care for the animals awaiting a second chance at the RISPCA.

The RISPCA is home to more than just dogs and cats. At any given time we may have rabbits, ferrets, mice, rats, gerbils, degus, chinchillas, hamsters, turtles, snakes, lizards, lovebirds, cockatoos, finches or even a pot-bellied pig!

In foster care, we often have horses, cows, pigs, goats, ducks and chickens. In the spring, our fosters take care of kittens and puppies.

Is your new best friend waiting for you here at the RISPCA? The only way to find out is to visit us today!
