We originated to help the homeless pets at the Cranston Animal Shelter, but as calls started coming in, we realized there were a lot of owned pets that also needed help. We now help pets throughout the State of Rhode Island.
We are holding a special fundraiser to purchase Kuranda Dog Beds for the dogs at the Cranston Animal Shelter. If you would like to help, please mail a check payable to A.D.O.P.T. in care of the Cranston Animal Shelter, 920 Phenix Avenue, Cranston, RI 02920. Please put Kuranda Bed in memo portion of your check.
Animals Depend On People Too, Inc., a not-for-profit volunteer organization is a group of animal lovers dedicated to helping stray, abandoned, homeless and injured animals at the Cranston Animal Shelter and throughout the state. Some of us have been involved as volunteers with the Cranston Animal Shelter for the last thirty-one years. We original volunteers saw a need to enhance on what we were able to do to help the vast number of homeless pets coming through the City Shelter. Thus, A.D.O.P.T. was born. For the last twenty years our organization has been helping homeless pets by providing necessary life-saving veterinary care. Numerous companion pets have been given a second chance at life due to our efforts. We also provide specialized food and supplies when needed and educate the public to the need for the humane treatment and care of animals and the importance of spaying and castration. We also assist pet owners with catastrophic, overwhelming veterinary bills. Without our help these pets may not survive. Only with your help can we continue to provide needed care to the less fortunate companion animals and their families in our communities. We are in the business to help those who cannot help or heal themselves. Our major fundraising events are Pet Photos with Santa, Rudolph & Frosty, the original Pet Photos With the Easter Bunny and our Golf Tournament in May and a dinner in the fall. Your donations also help us with vaccines such as rabies, distemper/Parvovirus, Feline Leukemia testing, Heartworm testing, etc in addition to the numerous spays, neutering, Heartworm treatments, parvo and upper respiratory treatments along with other medical treatments given to homeless pets in need. We have also helped many family pets throughout the state this year. Every dollar that you can spare helps us in our cause. We could never have accomplished what we have without your support. Please remember us through your payroll deductions. Our United Way Number is 4818
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
