AmbassaDOG Photo Contest!

Ready to have some fun? TODAY, we will be launching our “AmbassaDOG” Photo Contest! Here’s the chance to have your dog featured as our AmbassaDOG for the 19th Annual Paws In The Park dog walk! The winner of this contest will be the “cover dog” for all marketing materials and will have the opportunity to “kick off” the event when the walk begins. This is a fantastic way for dog owners to show their love for their pets and help support the Rhode Island SPCA. Stay tuned for more details!

Paws In The Park Registration will be opening shortly!

***Save the Date!*** Get those leashes ready for the Rhode Island SPCA 19th annual Paws In The Park Dog Walk!
