After years of searching for a permanent home, the East Greenwich Animal Protection League recently found a building off Centerville Road in Warwick they are looking to buy. But they need help. And they need it now.
Their “PAWS-ABILITIES” Capital Campaign runs through Sept. 27. Here’s the link: http://tilt.tc/Nk9F. There is a long way to go to meet the $100,000 goal but director Tammy Flanagan remains hopeful.
“The Weiss Family has generously donated the first $25,000 to put us well on the path to our goal, but we still need your support,” reads the text on the EGAPL donation page. “We save hundreds of animals’ lives every year from high-kill shelters and we also take in stray, turn-in or unwanted animals from our community. You can be a part of helping us save lives by helping us make our dream of a new facility into a reality! Please donate any amount that you can and please help us by spreading the word about our campaign.”
The EGAPL is a 501-C3 non-profit organization with an overall budget of more than $100,000. They receive $18,000 a year from the Town of East Greenwich, which does not have a municipal animal shelter.
