Local park and recreation facility Goddard Park is the host site for the 19th Annual Hound Hike, a fundraiser for the East Greenwich Animal Protection League.

The North Kingstown Blog is happy to promote any event or fundraiser that supports the volunteers and staff and programs at our local Rhode Island animal shelters.  I received an email from Ellayna Ungureanu, Vice President and Fundraising Chair for the East Greenwich Animal Protection League.  Here is some additional information about the EGAPL:

With no Town municipal shelter, the East Greenwich Animal Protection League is the only refuge for the homeless cats and dogs of East Greenwich. We expand our outreach to animals in the greater Rhode Island area when space and finances permit. The League also works with high-kill shelters in the South to bring adoptable puppies and dogs to safety at EGAPL.

EGAPL is a no-kill rescue. We do not euthanize animals after a certain length of time or for treatable medical and behavioral issues. We provide for our animals’ boarding and medical needs for as long as is necessary. EGAPL is an official Non-Profit 501(C)(3) organization.  The website for more information is www.egapl.org.
