Volunteers are incredibly important to the animal's happiness and well being while in the shelter's care. There is no cleaning or feeding involved; just walks, cuddles, love and attention to all the animals in the facility, while they are in our care waiting for their new home. You can volunteer for 20 minutes or stay 2 hours. It's your choice! You must be at least 21 years old to volunteer.

We are open Monday though Sunday, 9am-2pm. 

Due to the shelter's upcoming renovation project, we are unable to accept new volunteers at this time.  Please check back for updates, as we hope to reopen the application process soon.  Thank you for your continued interest!! 

Foster Care Program

The North Providence Animal shelter currently has a Foster Care Program.

Fostering an animal is always a rewarding experience and helps to socialize the animal and prepare them for a new home. You must be at least 21 years old and complete an application at our facility. Please call the shelter for additional information.
