Lost a pet? Found a pet?
If you are having a problem with feral or abandoned cats, please read the information available at www.pawswatch.org. This website will give you information and help with dealing with the problem.
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!
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.
SPAY & NEUTER
Spaying or neutering your cat is now required by law! Information on this new law can be found here.
You may also qualify for low-cost spay and neuter procedures, offered locally by the Salmon River Veterinarian, LLC. For more information, including spay and neuter dates and locations, please visit Salmon River Veterinarian's website, and call (401) 793-0092 for appointments.
More will be added as information becomes available! Check back often, and thank you!
Volunteer Vet Tech
We are especially in need of a vet tech that could volunteer 1-2 hours a week to perform SNAP tests on the animals. If you can help, please call Holly at (401) 295-5579.
Volunteers are always needed to feed and cuddle our dogs and cats, especially on weekdays. If you are over 18, and are interested in sharing your time and love with these faithful yet forgotten companions, please visit us on Hamilton Allenton Road to fill out a volunteer application.

Cash For Critters
There are more than 250 different ink jets on the market; we can turn most of them in for cash. However, there are a few styles we cannot send for payment (for instance, we cannot accept any cartridge that has a sticker showing it has previously been recycled). If you can't drop off your used cartridges, save them till you have a few, then call us at 294-6899, and we will arrange for a pickup.
"Friends of the North Kingstown Animal Shelter"
Friends of the North Kingstown Animal Shelter is a non-profit organization founded to help the animals here at the Shelter. Each year, we find "forever homes," provide spay and neuter services, and fund shots and medical care for hundreds of animals, and help struggling families provide medical care for their pets.
Please help us continue the work we are doing for North Kingstown's pets and families, and make a donation of any amount. If you would like to contribute to our efforts, please send a check to:
All donations are tax deductible. You may also donate through the United Way or Combined Federal Campaign.
