EAST PROVIDENCE — East Providence Animal Control invites you to attend our annual Pet Adopt-a-thon on Saturday, Nov. 17, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. This event will be held at 62 Commercial Way. Please come support the animals.

During the event, the $25 adoption fee will be waived. If you adopt an animal, you will be given a raffle ticket, and winners will be chosen at the end of the event. Winners will receive prizes from various companies that are donating for this event. If you are unable to adopt but would still like to support and help the animals, we will have a "Donation Station" setup in which donations will be accepted.

If you would like to know what you can do to help donate, or what you may need in order to adopt, please feel free to call the staff at (401) 435-7675, or visit the website: http://www.petfinder.com/shelters/RI46.html.

If you currently own animals, we ask that you please do not bring them with you during this event. Please feel free to post your own adoption story on our Facebook page, pictures may be included. The Animal Control Officers and all staff members of East Providence Animal Control would like to thank you for your support.
