Our hours have changed! We are open Tue-Sat 8:30-2, and Sunday & Monday 8:30-3:30. Come by and say hello!
Our mission is to provide a healthy, safe, and caring environment for each animal in our keeping, and ultimately to place them in loving “forever homes.” We fulfill our mission by ensuring that each animal is spayed or neutered prior to adoption, and also by providing other medical care and comfort items for the animals.
The North Kingstown Animal Shelter is a division of the North Kingstown Police Department. We take in a wide variety of animals, mainly cats and dogs, but at any given time you may also find birds, rabbits, snakes, or other small pets such as guinea pigs. Please check back with us regularly to see who is currently staying with us!
