Why Raise Money for the Rhode Island SPCA?
The money raised at the Walk goes directly toward helping our animals by providing food, shelter, veterinary care, and a chance for a new home. This community event is anticipated by pet lovers throughout the state. You won’t want to miss it! We invite you to get involved by collecting pledges for the walk, starting a fundraising team of walkers, and bringing your dogs for an excellent day in the park. It is all for a good cause and the animals thank you for your support!
