The RISPCA is not affiliated with any national, state, or government agencies and relies on private donations, special events, and grants for operating expenses. The Society was the first humane organization in Rhode Island and is the 3rd oldest humane organization in the United States. At 140 years old, we are the only animal rescue organization in the state of Rhode Island that is empowered to investigate and prosecute cases of animal cruelty and neglect. The Society is charged with the sole purpose of protecting animal life in all situations that might endanger them. We are dedicated to crusading for the rights and welfare of all animals great and small through legal, educational, and investigative means. Regardless of need, the mission of the RISPCA is to safeguard the well being of all creatures and advocate for the rights and humane treatment of those who cannot speak for themselves.
