2020 was an incredibly challenging year for our community and we were there to help. The Rhode Island SPCA launched an Emergency Pet Food Assistance program to address the needs of pet owners who were affected by the COVID-19 crisis or were in need of temporary assistance feeding their pets from March 2020 to March 2021. We led the way with home deliveries that fed over 941 pets and supported over 530 families. This emergency program was made possible thanks to the support of Rumford Pet Center  and the support of people like you in our community through monetary donations. Please Note: As of April 1, 2021, our program has closed. We will continue to provide a resource list of other local organizations that have pet food assistance programs.
