Attention all dog lovers!
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 email@example.com (firstname.lastname@example.org) to set up a meeting and a tour of the facility.
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.
