If you've been thinking of donating, now is a great time! Friends, it seems that we have an abundance of medical cases right now. All of the animals pictured here have extensive medical needs and have put a huge strain on our veterinary account which is funded solely by donations. A huge thank you goes out to Ben's Annual Lemonade Stand as all of those funds have been expended towards these animals. First, our little stray kitten with the serious bite wounds to his tail ended up in surgery to have his tail amputated as the nerves in the tail were dead. Django, our abandoned Doberman, was planned for adoption with a home waiting for him, but he has run into some medical road blocks. After treatment for Lyme Disease and urinary tract infection, Django still has protein in his urine, continues drinking and urinating excessively, and has failed to gain weight. He is receiving further diagnostics to evaluate his kidney function which could be damaged from the Lyme Disease. And then we have the small but mighty (and very noisy) group of eight Shih Tzu mix dogs. These littles range from 1 - 7 years old and came with a host of medical problems among them. Internal and external parasites, skin infections, ear infections, dental issues, Lyme Disease, Anaplasma, abnormal blood tests such as low platelets and anemia, abnormal urine tests including protein and crystals are some of the issues we have been treating. Five of these little dogs have high grade heart murmurs and need cardiac ultrasounds before they can move forward to needed dental surgery and spay/neuter. Medical care so far for the 10 total animals you see here has already surpassed $4,800 even with the generous discounts we receive. We have at least a few thousand more to expend to get all the needed ultrasounds, surgeries, dentals, and diagnostics completed for everyone. At this time, things are moving along as quickly as possible and as animals are healthy enough to move forward with the goal to make them ready for adoption. Our sincere thanks to Northern Rhode Island Animal Hospital for working with us to get everyone healthy and to the ladies at Colonial Kennel who provided complimentary grooming for four of the small dogs last and will be completing grooming of the other four this week.
We expect lots of interest in the small dogs, none of which are ready to leave us at this time. We will place names and identifying info on each photo of the small dogs. Those interested in being considered should send an email to email@example.com and we will reply with specific info to submit for consideration for adoption. Some animals will be ready to go sooner than others.

Talulla is about 2 yrs old, she has had 5 litters outdoors before being rescued Tigersden Rescue, unfortunately, her babies were taking out of her and euthanized when spayed! (her home) the only thing she knew was taking from her. we believe she deserves a chance to thrive!!! We are looking for this babies miracle, she needs a foster person to work with her, as she is semi feral . Please email us if interested in being her miracle. Tigersden6684@yahoo.com or text us 401-439-5443
So momma kitty wasn’t so nice today! I stopped and bought them some shaved turkey breast and while I help a piece near her she nipped at me, I have worked with semi feral cats in the past and usually after being in for as long as she has, they would have eaten while you were there, this cat isn’t budging and I’m afraid she will never adjust or we just don’t have the hours to work with her!!!! I believe she needs to be separated from her babies not just for herself for them as well, they are starting to act like her, since no one has even considered giving her a chance we are contemplating releasing her, it’s not definite yet, but we are leaning towards that! When I pet her when she’s in the corner all she does is tremble uncontrollably!!! It’s unbelievably heartbreaking!!! We love you baby but hate that your hurting
Every year we try to improve shelters for our cat colonies, this coming winter is going to be a bad one from what everyone is saying. Our largest colony consisting of 30 + cats are going to have it the hardest as early this summer they lost their garage and a cellar the used to seek refuge from the cold!!!! So as a result of that we need to ensure they have adequate shelters to provide the warmth they will need, our trapper will be making some shelters for their safety however funds will be needed to purchase what we need. Please help us to help them. Thank you,
Happy Saturday Caturday!
Remi and Boo Boo would like to remind everyone that they are still available for adoption! And Remi would like to remind everyone that he would like to be the only pet in the house 😻😻
