JACK I'VE BEEN ADOPTED!!! is a very handsome DSH Brown Tabby cat, about two years old. Jack lost his home when his owner moved and could not take him. He is slowly adjusting to life at the shelter, but would love to get back into a home as soon as possible. Jack prefers woman to men and does not like dogs. He has not lived with children and would do best in an adult home. He is a friendly guy, but can sometimes get nervous. He LOVES cat treats and will come running for them. This big boy is sad here at the shelter. Please help us find him a new home where he can be happy again. Jack is litter trained, Felv/FIV negative, vaccinated, and neutered. LOG #2015-149.

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.
|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.|
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.
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.
The Burrillville Animal Control Shelter is located on Clear River Road which runs off of Broncos Highway (Rt 102) in the village of Oakland. Visiting hours are from 8:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. seven days a week. Evening visits are available by appointment, Tuesday thru Friday.
