The Animal Rescue League of Southern Rhode Island started in 1938 with just a small number of concerned citizens that recognized the need for a humane organization that is dedicated to the protection and care of stray, abandoned and abused animals.
In 1969 ARL/SRI moved to Curtis Corner Road in Peace Dale Rhode Island, where the staff can care for as many as 40 cats, 20 dogs and other small animals such as rabbits at any given time.

The mission of the ARL/SRI is to find permanent and suitable homes for animals in need, provide interim humane care for those animals and to promote the humane treatment of all animals.
The League’s extended mission includes organizing educational classes for children and adults, providing the community with volunteer opportunities and interaction with pets, and addressing animal-related problems in the community.
As a small non-profit, our work is solely funded through private donations. We do not receive funding from any town, city, or state municipality to fund our mission.
