Our Local Partners

Rescue takes a village, and we have an AWESOME one!  As a rescue, we couldn’t provide temporary care and find great homes for all those we do without the help and support of our amazing partners and sponsors.  Our responsibilities entail proactively caring for every aspect of each of our animals’ overall well-being. This includes dental care, behavior and mental care and support, parasite control, nutrition, vaccinations, regular exams, socialization, outreach and engagement with the community.  If this sounds like a big job, IT IS, and we surely can’t do it alone!  Like us, our partners and sponsors are committed to helping animals in need and providing quality services and products.  Please consider supporting our friends who help us to save lives!

SOS reTail Logo Horizontal

SOS reTAIL, a retail pet supply and services facility in Wakefield, RI, was added to the SOSARL life-saving programs in June 2019 to provide a physical gathering and meeting space for our volunteers and adopters, and an additional outlet to bring awareness for and support of animal welfare and quality support services and products. SOS reTAIL also provides access to quality products and services to SOS foster dogs, and supporters can find everything they need for their own pets at SOS reTAIL in Wakefield, RI. We carry a large selection of quality dog and cat supplies and services that have been hand-picked and only made it to our store after being heavily tested by our multitude of discerning foster and personal pets. We love them, and think you will, too! And the best part? 100% of store proceeds go to supporting homeless animals in our community and beyond!

Our Services Partners

Our services partners help get each SOS dog what he needs to thrive (and look good) and be ready for his forever home.


BDB 250

Just like children, each dog has his own personality and learns and adjusts a little differently than the next.  We couldn’t do what we do without the steadfast support and adaptable approaches of Melissa Kroll and her team at Bad Dog Basics.  From training, to dog walking, to playgroup, to pet sitting, they’ve been in the pet care business for over 30 years, and always 100% family-owned and operated!  Visit their website to find out more!
