Found/Stray Pets & Surrenders

DO NOT LEAVE AN ANIMAL AT OUR LOCATION UNATTENDED – THIS IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS!

Found/Stray Pets

All stray cats and dogs in East Greenwich are the responsibility of the East Greenwich Animal Protection League and will be turned over to us after a mandatory quarantine period. Please notify East Greenwich Animal Control immediately if you find a stray cat or dog by calling 401-886-8640.

Found a stray who seems to be a lost pet? Check out the RI Lost Pets Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/RI.Lost.Pets, for postings of lost pets.

PLEASE be careful about approaching any unknown animal, particularly one that is injured or sick. We prefer that no animal be left out in the elements, but we also want to keep all Good Samaritans safe. Watch an animal for cues: if he/she is biting, growling, hissing, tucking his/her tail between the legs (dog) or wagging a tail (cat), or showing other signs of aggression, be sure to call Animal Control for assistance!

Owner Surrenders

If you are an East Greenwich resident and need to surrender your pet, please contact us directly (please see our contact information for our Cat and Dog Adoption Coordinators).

Please note that our primary responsibility is for stray and surrendered cats and dogs in the Town of East Greenwich only. If you need to surrender a stray or owned pet that is not from East Greenwich, please contact your local City/Town shelter first.
