About Us


We are open Sun-Sat 9am-2pm. Yes all 7 days of the week! Come by and say hello!

Adopting A Friend

Our mission is to provide a healthy, safe, and caring environment for each animal in our keeping, and ultimately to place them in loving “forever homes.” We fulfill our mission by ensuring that each animal is spayed or neutered prior to adoption, and also by providing other medical care and comfort items for the animals.

Who We Are

The North Kingstown Animal Shelter is a division of the North Kingstown Police Department. We take in a wide variety of cats and dogs Please check back with us regularly to see who is currently staying with us!
