Rhode Island SPCA opens new home, invites public to visit

The weather could not have been more perfect for the Rhode Island SPCA’s Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony that took place this week. President Wayne Kezirian addressed a crowd of hundreds of RISPCA supporters and spoke of his fondness for Warwick, the center’s new home, saying “it is a city that welcomed us with open arms”.

Warwick Mayor Frank Picozzi, Representative Joseph Solomon Jr., and Speaker Joe Shekarchi were all thanked for their support.

The RI SPCA is daily from 10am to 4pm in Warwick at 155 Plan Way. All of the shelter operations – adoptions, animal health center, humane education, animal cruelty law enforcement, pet food pantry, and volunteer program – are now under one roof and they welcomed the public to visit and see why they are not “just a shelter”!

Their East Providence facility is now closed to the public. Donations should be sent to –155 Plan Way, Warwick, RI 02886.
