About Our Shelter:The Rhode Island SPCA is a non-profit animal shelter and cruelty investigation agency. Founded in 1870, we are the third oldest shelter in the US. We are not affiliated with the ASPCA and we do not receive funding from them. Our motto is to "speak for those who cannot speak for themselves" and we are proud to adopt out over 80% of the animals that come to us for adoption. We strive to educate the public as well as other animal care professionals and to assist the animals of New England in any way we can.
Come Meet our Pets:Hours:
10am - 4:30pm (no transactions 12-1pm)
10am-4pm (no transactions 3:30-4pm)
Closed Sun and major holidays
Our Adoption Process:We require an application for each adoption, followed by a brief interview, then a meeting with the animal. If you have a dog at home and are adopting a dog from us, we require a meet and greet first.
Once approved, all cat and dog adoptions are $80. This includes distemper combo vaccinations, rabies vaccination and ID tag, deworming, flea/tick treatment, free behavior handouts, one free vet visit, and one free behavior consultation.
