East Greenwich Animal Protection League has served the community of East Greenwich since 1977. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue and practice a no-kill model. The rescue recognized the desperate need to help with the overpopulation of dogs and cats in the Southern states about 10 years ago. Our primary focus is transporting dogs and cats that would otherwise be euthanized and ready them for adoption into loving homes.
The cost to have a dog or cat released into a quarantine facility, the boarding of that animal, medical fees, transporting them to Rhode Island as well as providing food, shelter and enrichment do not come cheap and we very often spend much more than what is asked from an adoption fee. This has left us with little money to renovate our new building.
Earlier this year we were so fortunate to have the assistance from Dr. Martin to purchase a building in Cranston, Rhode Island. The building is just a shell at present but our dream of turning it into a comfortable place where animals can feel safe before finding their forever home is so close to a reality.
