About Us

The Animal Rescue League of Southern Rhode Island started in 1938 with a small number of concerned citizens that recognized the need for a humane organization dedicated to the protection and care of stray, abandoned, abused and homeless animals.

In 1969, the ARLSRI moved to Curtis Corner Road in Peace Dale Rhode Island, where we care for approximately 50 cats, and 20 dogs, and other small animals such as guinea pigs at any given time.  We are a caring and compassionate no-kill animal rescue.
