Commercial washer needed
The Pet Refuge is in DESPERATE NEED of a COMMERCIAL WASHER for its facility. Our shelter cares for up to 150 cats and kittens which means lots and lots of laundry every day/all day and our previous residential machines just wouldn't hold up. We presently have supporters and volunteers taking bags of laundry to their own homes and laundromats to help us until we can afford a durable commercial washer.

The Pet Refuge relies on fundraising and donations from friends and supporters to keep going so that we can help abandoned and neglected animals across the state. We do NOT get any help from the Town of North Kingstown or state of Rhode Island. If you can help our shelter in ANY way (no donation is too small) please be assured we will be more grateful than words can express. Thank you all so much for taking the time to read this and your consideration in donating.

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.
