NPAWS was born in 2020 out of concern for the well being of animals housed at the North Providence Animal Shelter. The building is over 50 years old, out of compliance with current sheltering standards and well beyond repair. One of our primary goals is to hold town officials accountable to their promise of building a new, adequate facility, that meets or exceeds current humane standards of care.
Our mission is to relentlessly advocate for the well-being of animals within the care of the North Providence Animal Shelter, support their caretakers and promote innovative programs and services within our community. There's strength in numbers so we are looking for others to get involved with our efforts to fundraise, voice support for the new shelter and the addition of much needed programs and services.
Our team is small but mighty and looking to grow! We're comprised of dedicated volunteers who are passionate about animals and committed to advocating on their behalf. We spend much of our time engaging the community, educating others and urging town officials to move forward with building a new shelter. We're also implementing much needed programs and services.
