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!
