This is a FANTASTIC organization to support for 401 GIVES or during any time of the year! The Warwick Animal Shelter does SO much for the local homeless animal population. Read about the many ways you can help below. - Kevin
March 30 to April 4, 2022
For the 3rd year, Friends of the Warwick Animal Shelter is participating in this amazing statewide day of giving. About 85% of the animals coming into the shelter need significant care. For example, Millie (pic attached), a sweet brindle pit-mix, has received over $2,000 in veterinary care since coming to the shelter and her adoption fee is only $165. Adopters never pay for the extras, and because of our donors, we never have to choose who does and doesn't receive needed care.
On Friday April 1st, 401Gives offers matching donations and prizes, and all donations received directly help our shelter animals.
