Our Featured Pet...

ELLIE Ellie is a beautiful two year old Black and Tan Coonhound. She is medium sized, at about 50 lbs. Ellie is sweet and friendly to people, but can be a bit shy. She came to us as a stray and was never claimed. Ellie's best home will be as the only pet as she has exhibited resource guarding around other animals. Definitely no cats for this girl. Teen kids would be best if there are to be children in the home. This is a dog that will need plenty of exercise and stimulation. A fenced yard would be ideal. Ellie is fully vetted and ready to find a new family to love. Please research the breed, and if you are interested in meeting Ellie, give us a call to schedule a date.

It seems that our number of abandoned and very neglected animals in need of veterinary care is continuing to rise. We are always happy to receive money donations that enable us to provide the medical care these animals need. All money donations are utilized for routine and emergency veterinary services for animals in our care. Other donated items we can use include: paper towels, kitty litter, dry and canned dog and cat food, bleach, Heartguard, Frontline, biscuits/treats, and towels.

Donate a Bed
We have chosen Kuranda dog beds for our boarding facilities because they are so good for our dogs. We still don't have enough for all of our kennels. If you would like to donate a bed so another dog can sleep in proper comfort, please click here.

Who We Are

Burrillville Animal Control is a municipal facility which operates to enforce animal control laws as well as house stray and homeless animals. Animal Control officers are available to assist the public and perform the following services: Return stray animals to their owners, place unclaimed animals for adoption, enforce local and state animal control ordinances, and educate and provide referrals for the public.

Adopting a friend

After meeting the pet you would like to adopt, the ACO will perform a brief screening. Depending on the status of the pet you are choosing (i.e. vaccinations, spay/neuter, etc.) the Shelter requires that you prepay the cost of Rabies vaccines and spay/neuter at the veterinarian of your choice. Upon returning to the shelter with the pre-paid receipt, the chosen pet will be released in your custody after completing the adoption paperwork. Animals that have been vaccinated and spayed/neutered require an adoption donation. We are able to assist you with low cost options for spay/neuter of dogs and cats.
