Who We Are

About Us

The Animal Rescue League of Southern Rhode Island shelter is located in Peacedale and the office in Wakefield. The shelter is a no-kill shelter and is funded one hundred percent by donations from our generous supporters. We receive no aid from any type of government agency.  


Our Mission

The mission of the ARL is to find permanent and suitable homes for animals in need, provide interim humane care for those animals, and promote the humane treatment of all animals.  




























What We Do


The ARL saves the lives of approximately 300 animals per year. Our goal for next year is to triple that number. In order to achieve this goal, we need the help of generous supporters like you. 




Our Philosophy 











We are a small “no kill” animal shelter that can accommodate up to 50 cats and small animals, and 20 dogs at one time. Though the words “no kill” are widely embraced, they also can be controversial, confusing, and even fearful to some. We at ARLSRI believe in the true context of the words no kill, meaning that we, “Treat “all” animals as the individuals that they are and with a good deal of flexibility" . .
