Because we are a true no-kill shelter, we want to help as many animals as we can, including dogs. We have helped countless cats and kittens thru the years but have been unable to house dogs because our kennels are not up to code. We thought we were finally on our way a year or two ago when we won a grant/monies/supplies to help us achieve this long-held dream. Unfortunately, the materials and supplies turned out to be sub par and couldn't be used for the purposes needed. We need to purchase safe, up to standard and easy to sanitize kennels supplies before we can accept dogs who need our help.

Can you help us to reach our goal? We certainly need a large amount of money and are attempting a goal of $12,000. We understand times are hard and people can't always give as much as they would like, tho so many of you have kindly donated to us in the past. Just know that we are grateful for ANY donation, no matter how large or small. Every dollar gets us a little closer to FINALLY reaching our goal so we can help ALL the animals who need it.

Thank you for reading and for any help you can give us.

Attention all dog lovers!
The Pet Refuge is now working towards our long-held goal of housing dogs at our shelter. Since we first opened, and especially these last few years, the Pet Refuge has been overwhelmed with cats and kittens that no one else will take. Because we are a true no-kill shelter many people turn to us to save these abandoned animals. A lot of our finances and efforts are spent caring for these unwanted animals until we can get them into loving forever homes. Now that the Pet Refuge is an established shelter, we would like to expand our efforts to include helping rescue dogs.

We're looking to start a committee - a group of people to start fundraising and then helping to finish this project. This would include erecting an 8-foot fence, already donated and enough to fence in the entire animal and exercise areas.

If anyone is interested in helping us in any way, or if you know people who would like to get on board to help make our dreams a reality, please call Renate at the shelter at (401) 294-1115 or email her at animalz@cox.net (animalz@cox.net) to set up a meeting and a tour of the facility.
