NPAWS was born in 2020 out of concern for the well-being of animals housed at the North Providence Animal Shelter. The building was over 50 years old, out of compliance with sheltering standards and well beyond repair. One of our primary goals was to hold town officials accountable to their promise of building a new, adequate facility, and we are proud to report the new shelter was built and opened in 2023.
Our mission is to relentlessly advocate for the well-being of animals within the care of the Tritown Animal Shelter in North Providence, support their caretakers and advocate for needed programs and services. 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 and supporting the community with our food distribution, veterinary fund and TNR programs. We're also advocating for much needed shelter programs and services.
