Give a Wag! Gives to Providence Shelters

Committed to serving animals for over a century, Providence Animal Rescue League is an open admission shelter that works closely with local animal control facilities to prevent animal homelessness throughout Providence. In pursuit of their mission, PARL provides several programs to the community such as the Pet Food Pantry for low-income households and their mobile surgical unit for low-cost neuter and spay services. When they are not finding animals of all kinds their forever homes, they are hosting beloved community events like Pints for Paws.

Providence animals are most often served by animal shelters contracted by the municipality. Because of this, they see huge numbers each year. And though Providence Animal Shelter has recently adopted a ‘low-risk euthanasia’ policy, they still rely heavily on local shelters to manage their overflow. Providence Animal Shelter focuses predominantly on returning lost animals and providing treatment to strays to increase their adoptability. Additionally, they are one of the few authorized entities to distribute the pet licenses that are required by Rhode Island law.

The North Providence Animal Control Division works closely with local law enforcement in circumstances of wildlife disturbance, nuisance strays, lost dogs, and instances of abuse or neglect. Despite it being a municipal shelter, they have a small staff and rely mostly on the compassion of their volunteer and foster network. They work tirelessly to reunite families and administer justice to those who have mistreated their animals. North Providence Animal Control is quite the local powerhouse, though their size would suggest otherwise.

    #4 Books on the Square

    Like the drive-in, independent bookstores are another dying breed, but are still a treasured thing of beauty. Books on the Square is an indie bookstore that welcomes well-behaved pooches. This shop is a cornerstone of the Providence community, and locals are known to spend an entire day here snuggled up with a great book, their pup and cup of coffee. Whether you are in for a read or a quick purchase, the staff here are absolutely wonderful and ready to help you find whatever you desire. Open year-round with books varying in price from new to used, there is a little something tucked away here for everyone.

    #5 Providence Ghost Tour


    Are you and Fido ready to get spooky? The history of Rhode Island is often overlooked; however, it carries a long record of America’s often horrific colonial past. Providence Ghost Tours take guests through some of the eeriest murders and tragedies this city has ever seen, all thanks to the archival work of its dedicated founders. The founders believe in historical accuracy, so unlike other ghost tours, they scare their customers with a dose of reality rather than fiction or monsters. Dogs are welcome on these tours, which are run every Saturday. Tickets are only $18, and dogs come along for free!
