    ***THIS IS A COURTESY POST FOR OUR FRIENDS AT THE PAWTUCKET ANIMAL SHELTER*** Meet Donna! This poor girl came in to the shelter in July (with another dog). Her former owner at the time was having a rough patch in life and could no longer care for either dog at the time. Time moved on, and the former owner said that she would NOT be returning for her dogs. That time delay on the false promise of returning cost these dogs months in a cage in a shelter. These dogs certainly put in their time and deserve their happily ever after that they could have been eligible for months ago. Donna needs a home (URGENTLY) with NO small children or dogs. ... (Read More)She's still practically a puppy of approximately 1 year old. She has been in the shelter since July and its beginning to really take its toll on her. We would love to find her the furever home she has been patiently waiting for.Once she finds her dream home she will be spayed. If interested ~ you may come fill out an application at the Pawtucket Animal Shelter (visiting hours are:M - F 10 -12 & 1 - 3 ~ Also on the weekends 10 - 2.) Once your application is approved OUR ACO Charlene will arrange a meet and greet with this special little lady. (Less)

    My Name is Erica, 23 months old. I was rescued 6 weeks ago from a 3 x 4 foot metal cage that I spent most of my life in with a kitten for 6 months. I am house broken and have been in private training to be a GREAT Companion! I get along with everyone but will need your Love, time and patience to adjust to my new Social life. My rescuer has 6 canine companions and can not keep me long term. He is not requesting any fees for my shots; but let me warn you that he is very good at screening for the best persons to adopt me! I have had some exposure in the past, aggressively playing with animal toys that squeak, giggle and laugh like small ... (Read More)children and would recommend that my new adoptive family have children over the ages of 12. Why do humans make chew toys for us that to my ears imitate the sounds of small children??? I am not fixed and have never had a liter. I like sleeping at the foot of the bed under the blankets when it's cold. More pictures and info are available if requested. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Pit Bull in Rhode Island
    Pit Bull Dogs can make good pets in Rhode Island if they match your IifestyIe. The American Pit Bull Terrier is a powerful dog with an undeserved reputation for inherent viciousness. A Pit Bull that receives attention, firm training, and thorough socialization makes a wonderful family guardian that is trustworthy with children. Pit Bulls need committed, experienced owners that exude leadership. Pit Bulls excel at high level obedience with proper training. Pit Bulls have been bred for dog fights, and unfortunately a dog that is abused, neglected, or whose instinctive aggression is encouraged, can become hostile and dangerous. Pit Bulls can adapt to apartment life with enough exercise.

lnteresting Pit Bull Trivia Low-Cost Rhode Island Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Some people believe that Pit Bulls are identical to what Bulldogs were in the past. Teddy Roosevelt owned Pit Bulls. Unfortunately, Pit Bulls are often used for illegal dog fighting. A disproportionate number of Pit Bulls are put down in major American cities each year.
