Great News !!!
The Pet Refuge sends out a sincere THANK YOU to Alley Cat Allies #thankyoualleycatallies @alleycatallies for helping us in our work with caring for all the cats in our Shelter, especially those affected by COVID-19. The $1,000 grant will allow us to purchase food for our cats currently at the Pet Refuge as well as donate food to be shared with the public through Maggie’s Pet Pantry in Richmond, RI. #thankyoualleycatallies

Due to the coronavirus crisis, we are making a change in shelter protocol. Until further notice, the Pet Refuge is implementing the following effective immediately. For the safety of our staff, only come to the shelter if you are picking up a cat, dropping off a donation, or meeting a cat you have been approved to adopt. You can click on the link below to fill out an online application for our cats listed on Petfinder. If you have any other questions or are interested in adopting but have not filled out an application, please CALL at 294-1115 M-Sa 11-4 and the manager will speak with you. We appreciate everyone's cooperation during this difficult time.

For adoption applications, please use ONLY the petrefuge@verizon.net email for applications.

Cat's Pride - Litter for Good Program
Over 3 million cats enter shelters each year, and fewer than half will ever find a forever home. With the Litter for Good program, every GREEN JUG you buy helps shelters find forever homes for cats in need.

The Pet Refuge is now registered with Adopt-A-Shelter online. When you shop at any of the stores listed in the Adopt-A-Shelter program, a portion of anything you purchase will come back to our shelter quarterly.

Simply click on the link below and you will see numerous merchants from which you may already purchase items. At the top of that page, pull down the SHELTERS menu, and you can find our shelter under "The Pet Refuge (NKEAPL)". Make sure you look under the Ts as they've included "The" in our name. Then, simply purchase items as you normally would, and Adopt-A-Shelter will do the rest!
