In 1938, a handful of concerned citizens recognized the need for a humane organization dedicated to the protection and care of stray, abandoned, and abused animals. They founded the Animal Rescue League of Southern Rhode Island (ARLSRI), establishing themselves as a non-profit organization in 1970, and recently renamed Animal Rescue Rhode Island (ARRI) (Wakefield, Rhode Island 02880).

For many years the shelter was located in a barn with animals cared for by volunteers. In 1969 the recently replaced shelter was built and from here a small staff, supported by passionate, selfless volunteers, worked near miracles caring for hundreds of unwanted animals each year. This work continues from the recently opened new shelter, where ARRI staff ad volunteers will continue to care for approximately 50 cats, 20 dogs, and other small animals, such as guinea pigs, at any given time.

Today, ARRI is respected statewide as one of the few, local no-kill shelters. In addition to its shelter services, ARRI is involved in coordinated efforts with other animal welfare groups to improve the lives of companion animals throughout RI. ARRI’s services to the community continue to grow each year. To meet those needs, ARRI proudly works in conjunction with many other caring organizations in Rhode Island, as well.

The Potter League for Animals (Middletown, Rhode Island 02842) is dedicated to making a difference in the lives of animals. We promote the humane treatment of all animals and provide shelter and care for lost or unwanted companion animals.

The Potter League is an “open admission” shelter which is able to help as many pets as possible. We accept all owner-surrendered animals from Newport County as well as all stray animals from those communities with which we have an animal control-housing contract. Approximately 2,000 dogs, cats, rabbits, and other small animals are received at our facility annually. The Potter League consistently maintains a Live Release Rate of 90% or higher through placement to new families, returned to their owners or released to another facility or rescue group. Our commitment to all animals means we are willing to pursue all reasonable efforts in order to provide for their well-being. In addition, almost 2,000 animals and their owners seek our other obedience, lost and found, cremation and behavior support services each year. We are the community’s animal care and resource center.

PawsWatch (Newport, Rhode Island 02840) is a group of volunteers that provides veterinary care and shelter to improve the lives of feral and unowned cats.

pawswatch-ri

Founded in 1997, PawsWatch is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. PawsWatch has provided veterinary care to more than 16,000 cats as of 2012. Before the inception of PawsWatch, the life of cats found living in colonies in Rhode Island neighborhoods was bleak — having to fight the elements of nature, living and reproducing in starvation and squalor, and often facing poisoning or mass roundup for death. Our goal is not to personally help every feral cat, but to teach Rhode Islanders to help the cats in their own neighborhoods.

There is new hope for feral and unowned cats through a new approach called TNRM (Trap, Neuter, Return, Monitor), which is proving to be a better way to treat this once condemned population. PawsWatch is part of a large and growing grassroots effort to transform “street cats” into healthy managed colonies, which decline through attrition. We provide resources, equipment, and guidance to make this goal possible. We believe that lasting change can come only from a widespread foundation of community involvement.

Labrador Retriever Rescue, Inc. is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to placing purebred Labrador Retrievers in suitable loving homes.

LRR

LRR has been placing Labs in suitable, loving homes for more than 25 years. LRR is overseen by a volunteer Board of Directors and staffed largely by volunteer workers made up of LRR adopters, Labrador breeders, and dog trainers. We stand behind each adoption with support from experienced, knowledgeable volunteers who love the Labrador Retriever breed.

We foster each Lab in a loving foster home, not a large, institutional kennel. We screen adopters by visiting their homes, with our own Labs, and writing a detailed home study report. People who adopt a new “best friend” from LRR find that the time, effort, and loving care we take in matching adopter and Lab—along with our lifetime take-back guarantee on any Lab we place—is a successful formula few rescues can match.
