We received word from PEDIGREE™ and GreaterGood that the Pet Refuge has been selected to receive a shelter renovation on Saturday, August 9, 2014. And, more good news. As part of the grant, the Pet Refuge will also receive a year's supply worth of dog food from PEDIGREE™.

We are in need of volunteers to help us with a number of projects so if you are interested and able, please read the message from PEDIGREE™ and GreaterGood (below) and follow the instructions!



Did you know each year more than four million dogs enter animal shelters across the US? Want to help? We do.

PEDIGREE™ and GreaterGood are teaming up to help support shelters and their dogs by transforming facilities through a national shelter renovation program.

On Saturday, August 9, 2014 PEDIGREE and GreaterGood are coming to Pet Refuge to improve day-to-day operations by identifying and executing needed beautification and improvement projects.

We need your help. We will be painting, landscaping, repairing kennels, making dog beds, laying gravel, and more. You don’t need any special skills – we will have staff on hand to train you on the projects – you just need a desire to help animals!

The volunteer day runs from around 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM and any hours you could join us would greatly help. Join us in making a difference for your local shelter and the animals in their care! Meet new friends, and bring old ones!

To sign up to help, fill out the form here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/RhodeIslandPetRefuge

We’ll send you more information on what to wear, what to bring, and where to be after we receive your application. Thank you for helping animals in your community!

Buy and sell on eBay for Pet Refuge
Pet Refuge is now part of the eBay Giving Works program. So, you can support our mission when you buy and sell on eBay. You can also make a one-time donation. Here's how:

You can find whatever you're looking for on eBay – from baseball cards to new cars and more. When you do, shop for items that benefit us. You can get a great deal and support the Pet Refuge at the same time!

You can also support the Pet Refuge when you sell on eBay. Just designate our organization to receive 10-100% of your final sale price the next time you list something great.

Did you know that charity listings often get more bids and higher prices than regular eBay listings? Boost your sales and support our critical work while you’re at it! Plus eBay gives back to you too, with a fee credit on your basic selling fees!

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.
