Ellie’s FAQs

What is Rhode Island SPCA’s adoption process?

Matchmaking is what we love to do. We do our very best to find the best fit for the pets awaiting adoption at the Rhode Island SPCA. The first step to adopting a dog from the Rhode Island SPCA is filling out an adoption application. If your application is selected, you will be contacted and asked if you would like to schedule a meet & greet. Because of the volume of applications we receive, sometimes we can only respond to the selected applicant. You are always welcome to contact us anytime about the status of your application at adoption@rispca.com. All Cat, Kitten, Dog, and Puppy Adoptions Include: Distemper Combo Vaccine Rabies Vaccine and Tag Flea/Tick/Ear Mite Treatment and Nail Trim (if needed) De-worming and Heartworm Testing Spay/Neuter (if animal is not of age to be spayed/neutered there will be a spay/neuter deposit) 1 Free Wellness Exam (at participating veterinary office) Free Up Country Collar and Leash of your choice ***ID tags are available at an additional cost Adoption Fees Cats……………………………………………….…………. $100 Kittens ………………………………………….……………… $150 Dogs……………….………………………………………… $275 Puppies ……………………………….……………….. $450 Rabbits………………………………………….………..… $65/$85pair Ferrets…………………………………………………….… $40/$50pair Guinea Pigs………………………………………………… $15/$25pair Hamsters…………………………………………………… $5/$10pair
