  • 1. A Wonderful Shelter with Friendly People

    by: emonfils

    We got our dog, Sam, from the Providence Animal Rescue League. We had gone to many shelters while looking for a dog. PARL was the best shelter we visited. The staff are friendly and welcoming. They were very helpful while we decided what dog would be best for us. They had done a behavioral assessment of the dog and were able to give us an idea of the dog's personality. We needed to wait one day for our application to be approved. It was a very nice experience.

    Pros

    Wonderful caring staff; well cared for animals

    Cons

    None

  • 3. Great place to adopt!

    by: hquigley

    They have a great staff who are very knowledgeable about animal breeds, health, and behavior. They are very good with the animals, and you can tell they love finding them a good home. They also include many things with your pet adoption, such as microchipping, and a free vet check.

    Pros

    Great workers (they know a lot about the animals), you get a lot with your adoption and they are very helpful even after you've adopted

    Cons

    the shelter is a little small

    by: RichR

    I adopted my cat 15 years ago from PARL they always have everything they need and always up to date with every thing. They have a great vet on staff. They have a beautiful van to travel around in to get pets adopted and to educate the public. They do so much! Keep up the great work.

    Pros

    private shelter

    Cons

    has to euthanize

  • 5. Very Helpful

    by: sarahanne1281

    The Rescue Legue was very nice when I found a kitten and my local shelter was full and could not take it in. It was a rainy horrible Sunday and they made it very easy for me to bring in this little cold wet kitten who didn't have a home. They were very nice...much nicer then the RISPCA. Thanks!

    Pros

    Kind and Professional

  • 6. Providence Animal Rescue League, a shelter with heart

    by: djb131

    The Providence Animal Rescue League (PARL) is a temporary home for pets who no longer have one. The goal of the organization is to find loving compatible homes and families for the pets in its care. The staff is very friendly, and they are always ready to help. I am a volunteer for PARL, and I am very happy helping out. The only downside to PARL is the building's handicapped accessiblity. It was built in the 1950's or 60's, and has a step up at its entrance.

    Pros

    PARL has very friendly and helpful staffmembers.

    Cons

    Handicapped Accessibility
