RHODE ISLAND SPCA
Love Doesn’t Discriminate Fund
Here at the RISPCA we love ALL animals!
Even those that need a little extra support, medical attention, and kindness. And we want to make it easier for them to find FOREVER homes. That is why we are creating a new fund strictly to help those animals that need more pre and post-adoption care. Each year, the RISPCA takes in hundreds of animals from our community and many of them require additional medical treatment and behavioral needs. The burden of that care is often passed on to the adopters which can deter some from adopting one of these special animals, or adopting from a shelter again. We want to break down that barrier and ease the financial difficulties by treating and offering assistance to the special humans who love our special needs animals post-adoption if needed. This fund is for all shelter residents – cats, dogs, small animals alike!
Some of the extra care to be covered by the Love Doesn’t Discriminate Fund would include but is not limited to the following:
*Diagnostic testing (x-rays, ultrasound, blood work)
*Antibiotics for infection (upper respiratory, urinary tract, skin, etc.)
*Dental cleaning/teeth extraction
*Entropion surgery (corrects a condition affecting the eyelids)
*Chronic condition support (diabetes, kidney disease, allergies)
*Special or Prescription diets (due to allergies, weight management, etc.)
*Treatment for Heartworm, Ringworm, Parvovirus
*Pyometra surgery (due to infection of the uterus)
*Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) surgery
*Pre and Post-adoption behavior support
Donate today to the Love Doesn’t Discriminate Fund to ensure even our most vulnerable animals receive the medical and behavioral attention and care they deserve.
