We are an all volunteer, non-profit, no-kill shelter and rely mainly on donations to stay in business. Since the Town of East Greenwich does not have a pound, a small number of us volunteer our time to take in the stray and abandoned animals. We board them at East Greenwich Animal Hospital where they receive an examination, vaccines, spaying/neutering, and medical care if needed.

Come Meet our Pets:
Adoption hours are on SUNDAY ONLY between 10:30am-1:00pm at East Greenwich Animal Hospital, 4302 Post Rd in East Greenwich, RI. Our animals are available for showing during this time or by appointment only. Hospital staff are forbidden to show animals or release information. Please note that adoptions are not on a first-come, first-serve basis but on the best match for each animal. Please allow us time to review completed adoption applications. Contact Nancy at firstname.lastname@example.org (401-465-7971) for more information about cats or Tammy at email@example.com (401-241-4541) for dogs.
Our Adoption Process:
Fees for adopting differ between cats and dogs. Specifics can be found on our website (www.egapl.org).
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.
