The Providence Animal Rescue League provides for the rescue and relief of suffering of homeless animals and perform charitable or benevolent acts for the welfare of animals. For a century PARL has been the haven for hundreds of thousands of unwanted, neglected and abused animals in the Greater Providence area. As an open admission shelter we are here to help community members with compassionate and judgment-free support when they are faced with the difficult decision to surrender their pet - whatever the reason. We provide each animal with a warm bed, compassionate care and take every step possible to place them into a permanent loving home. There are no time limits for the animals here at PARL and we do everything we can both medically and behaviorally to ensure each animal has the best possible chance for adoption.
