We have re-organized this rescue to ensure that we are working within the laws of the State of Rhode Island and of the Federal Government. Within the State of Rhode Island, Little Rhody Rescue is proud to be registered and listed with the State of RI DEM Animal Health department as a Class A rescue. We also are a fully licensed quarantine facility if the need arises. We will nOT adopt a pup or dog without spaying or neutering it first; no exceptions. Additionally, we will not adopt to a home that has an UNALTERED dog in their home. Please Spay and Neuter ALL of your pets. Overpopulation is the one reason for us to even exist.
