About Us


Our Mission

The mission of Scruffy Paws Animal Rescue is to assist with reducing the numbers of homeless animals living in unfavorable conditions by providing abandoned, unwanted, and stray animals food, shelter, proper veterinary care, rehabilitation, and the opportunity for adoption into loving forever homes. Last year we rescued and adopted 250 cats and kittens into loving furever homes!  Our lifesaving percentage is 99.85%!  Only .15 % of our rescue kitties crossed over the rainbow bridge in hospice care last year. They will always remain dear to our hearts. 


Get Involved

Are you passionate about what we're doing? Let us know! We are always looking for volunteers to help us make our vision a reality. We'll help you find a way to volunteer that best suits you. We're excited to have you join the team!


Thank You

Whether you help through donations, volunteering your time, or spreading our mission through word-of-mouth, thank you. 




All you need is a spare room and time to give to help prepare our rescues for their furever homes. We need volunteers who would like to help with providing medical care and attention, taming and socialization, and care in preparation for adoption.  


Cat Care at Adoption Partner Locations

Would you like to help care for the cats and kittens at our adoption partner locations? We have cats and kittens for adoption at the PetSmarts in North Smithfield and Johnston. They require daily feeding, cleaning, and socialization. Let us know if you would like to help!

Volunteer Application


Fundraising, including events, grant writing, and activities, are always needed to raise money for the vetting and care of our rescues. Let us know if you want to help! 


Adoption Partner Locations

Our cats and kittens are located in the Johnston and North Smithfield PetSmarts and in foster homes across the state of R.I. There is a loving cat waiting for you to be their forever family!

Our Process

Our process for adoption approval includes an application, veterinary reference, and home visit. We are looking for the best fit and homes for our rescues.
