Providence Animal Rescue League
The Providence Animal Rescue League (PARL) is a private, non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization founded in 1913. PARL serves communities throughout Rhode Island and beyond. Our mission is to provide for the rescue and relief of suffering or homeless animals and perform charitable or benevolent acts for the welfare of animals.
PARL’s mission is accomplished by providing appropriate shelter and humane care for homeless animals, seeking permanent responsible homes for adoptable animals, reducing pet overpopulation through strict spay/neuter measures, and providing a diversity of humane education programs to meet community needs. It receives no federal or state funding and rely solely on donations from generous individuals, businesses, and foundations to support its programs and services.
