We should have been neutered, we should have been spayed, now we suffer the consequence of the errors THEY made.
If only they'd trained us, if only we knew...
we'd have done what they asked us and worshiped them, too.
We were left in the backyard, or worse -let to roam- now we're tired and lonely and out of a home.
They dropped us off here and they kissed us good-bye... "Maybe someone else will give you a try."
So now here we are, all confused and alone... in a shelter with others who long for a home.
The kind workers come through with a meal and a pat, with so many to care for, they can't stay to chat,
They move to the next kennel, giving each of us cheer... we know that they wonder how long we'll be here.
We lay down to sleep and sweet dreams fill our heads.. of a home filled with love and our own cozy beds.
Then we wake to see sad eyes, brimming with tears...our friends filled with emptiness, worry, and fear
If you can't adopt us and there's no room at the Inn...could you help with the bills and fill our food bin?
We count on your kindness each day of the year...can you give more than hope to everyone here?
Please make a donation to pay for the heat... and help get us something special to eat.
The shelter that cares for us wants us to live, and more of us will, if more people will give.

~~ SIMON ~~
Meet Simon! Simon is a very special boy. He gets along great with other cats and dogs. He's great with all people. Simon has diabetes.
He's on 1 w/2 units twice a day of meds. He is very easy to do. He eats Merrick canned cat food and loves it.
He loves when you put your forehead on his and kiss his nose and tell him he's handsome.
He closes his eyes and then gives you the love eyes like he knows exactly what you said.
He loves to be near you and at times he loves on you a lot but that is telling you he wants more kisses.
He is a very gentle loving boy!
~~ GRACIE ~~
Gracie is such a sweetie. She loves to be near people & can be very playful.
She would probably do better as the only dog in the household. She has just started training & loves to learn.
Gracie likes to go for walks & have her belly rubbed too.
She has been training with Susan Parker, owner of Dynamic Dog Training.
She's a great dog to have a lot of fun with.
The West Warwick Animal Shelter highly recommends:

Do you want to adopt or have a dog your home owners insurance policy will not allow you to have. Homeowners with breed exceptions on their insurance policy can get this policy and still own the breed of their choice because it insures the dog not the home. http://lkalmanson.com/dog.html. Renters, and dogs that have a past bite record can also get insured.
We are in need of the following items:
clay cat litter
canned gravy dog food
Purina cat chow (blue bag)
bones (right from the meat department)
Frontline (flea & tick treatment) any weight, cat or dog
(We desperately need * dry and
canned kitten food), nursing kitten bottles
catnip mice (always a big hit!!)
pet wipes, ear wipes
dog toys and treats, including chew bones, Snausages, and Beggin' Strips, kongs.
