Burrillville Animal Shelter

The Burrillville Animal Shelter could use your help. If you can't adopt a shelter pet, you can help make the days happier for the animals at the shelter who are patiently waiting to find their forever homes. Donations for the shelter can be dropped off at the JMS Library. There is a list of most needed items posted in the Library, and cash donations are always welcome to help with veterinary care for the animals. Thank you.
