The mission of the 501(c)(3) non-profit no-kill Pet Refuge is to provide a warm home for abused and neglected cats from within the state of Rhode Island and also for those cats who can no longer remain in their homes for a variety of reasons. We supply our kitties with all the love, attention, pet medications, and veterinary care they need. We are a private entity funded by your donations.


In 1968, five concerned residents of Wickford, Rhode Island started the North Kingstown Animal Protection League to raise money for local animals. The word “Exeter” was added to the name in 1979 to include the town of Exeter.

In 2004, the shelter property on Stony Lane was purchased from the late owner of the Stony Lane kennels.

Today, Pet Refuge takes in cats and kittens from all over Rhode Island. We take in and adopt between 180-270 cats annually.
