SOSARL is a Rhode Island based, volunteer-driven animal rescue league that finds permanent New England homes for dogs from shelters and rescue organizations in TN, NC, MS, TX, and AR, as well as dogs from New England owner surrenders and facilities as our resources allow. Since our founding in 2014, we have placed over 3500 animals in loving New England homes and grown to over 150 active volunteers. We have sponsored over 300 private spay/neuters to reduce the number of unwanted pets, and funded over $10,000 in life-saving projects in our rescue partners’ communities.
SOSARL is a Rhode Island based, volunteer-driven animal rescue league that advocates for homeless and at risk animals while providing comfort, rehabilitation and veterinary care to the animals in our program and finding them permanent homes. We help dogs from seven shelters and rescue organizations in southern states, as well as dogs from local owner surrenders and facilities as our resources allow. Since our founding in 2014, we have placed over 2400 animals in loving New England homes and grown to over 70 active volunteers and 15 foster homes. We have sponsored over 100 private spay/neuters to reduce the number of unwanted pets, and funded over $5,000 in life-saving projects in our rescue partners’ communities.
SOS adoption donations help offset the expenses we routinely incur, such as transport, vetting (spay/neuter, worming, vaccinations, or other special needs), boarding, and behavioral modification. We ask the same adoption donation for each of our dogs, as we believe each life we save is equally precious.*
*Seniors and Special Needs Dogs
If you are considering adopting a senior or special needs dog and the adoption donation seems daunting, we encourage you to ask us about an adoption donation discount. We often offer post-adoptive care for our special needs dogs and we assess each situation individually. We will never allow an adoption donation to be the barrier to finding the right home for one of our dogs.
An additional MA Quarantine Fee is required for all dogs adopted to Massachusetts residents, and other fees/requirements might apply depending upon the adopter's state of residence. All fees are non-refundable.
All LOCAL SOS adoptions are sent home with a martingale collar, SOS ID tag, and if an adult, an appropriate harness as part of our Smart Start Program (a $60 value).
If you are interested in meeting one of our dogs, please check our upcoming events page here: http://sosarl.org/upcoming-events/. Some adoptions are able to be finalized prior to an in-person meeting between the adopter and dog, if after the adoption interview and discussions with the foster home and adopters the match seems like a good one. If an in-person meeting is important to you, please be sure to note this in your application and discuss this with your Adoption Counselor. If the dog does not have the word "LOCAL" in his/her name, s/he is not yet in New England and may not be available for a meet-n-greet prior to adoption, but s/he may be headed to New England soon.
Donating to Save One Soul Animal Rescue League is the easiest and fastest way for you to help us realize our vision of a No-Kill Nation. We are a volunteer-driven organzation, we do not own a shelter facility, and we don’t receive any government funding. We rely on our adoption donations and the kindness of wonderful people like you to continue our work on rescue, rehabilitation and adoption of homeless animals, efficient and safe transport programs, post-adoption support, and building the rescue resource community to help keep good pets in good homes.
