Help us Get Get 'Em Home!

PARL is excited to have been accepted into the Get ‘Em Home Challenge, a three-month long contest aimed at helping shelters find permanent homes for long-stay animals (those who have resided in the shelter for more than 30 days). The Get ‘Em Home Challenge is a Maddie’s Fund initiative. They will be rewarding shelters with prize money based on creativity and overall impact.

We’ve got some fun tricks up our sleeves to get our animals out of the shelter and into homes. But we need your help too. We want to crowdsource the contest, and have you, our most loyal supporters, come up with your own unique ideas to promote our long-stay animals. So get to work and let us know what you’ve got planned! Here are a few of our long-stay animals, like Pookie here who is eligible for the Get 'Em Home Challenge

New Cat Accommodations Coming Soon!

We've got some really exciting news at PARL! Thanks to a generous grant from the Rhode Island Foundation, we're making some major renovations to our cat housing, which will include the installation of cage portals!
Each portal will connect two of our adjacent, stainless steel cages so that cats will now have double the living space. Portals are an effective means to improve the health, well-being and overall experience of cats in shelters, and reduce cats' lengths of stay. By reducing the amount of time each cat spends in the shelter, PARL can save more cats' lives over the long run.

As of right now, we are planning on being closed to the public during the installation of cat portals on Oct. 9th and 10th. In the lead up to the portal installation, we need your help!! If you've been thinking about adopting a cat, NOW is the time! We need as many homes for cats as possible, and we need them now!

To that end, through October 5th all cat adoption fees are HALF OFF! Please support PARL and support our cats by coming in and finding your feline! Click here to see our adoptable cats.
