Come Visit Us!

To see our animals available for adoption please come to our OPEN HOUSE every Sunday from 10:30 AM to 1:00 PM.
We would appreciate your coming to see the animals on Sundays ONLY from 10:30 AM - 1:00 PM since there are no East Greenwich Animal Protection League volunteers at the hospital during the week. Adoptions are not on a first-come, first-serve basis but on the best match for each animal. Please allow us time to review completed adoption applications.
