New campaign launches to save furry friends

Members of the East Greenwich Animal Protection League stopped by The Rhode Show Wednesday to talk about their new, online Tilt campaign called “Paws-Abilities.”

The East Greenwich Animal Protection League is attempting to raise $100,000 in the next 18 days to open their own no-kill animal shelter. For the past 30 years, the league has used local animal hospitals to house homeless animals.

“We really need our own facility at this point,” said Tammy Flanagan, president of the league.

Marie Weiss, campaign chairwoman, started the fundraiser with her husband, Alan. She also donated $25,000 of her own money to the campaign. “All the money we pay for rent now will help these little buddies find a home and keeping them safe,” said Weiss.

To help the league open its own animal shelter or to learn more, visit the “Paws-Abilities” campaign website.

The league also holds an “open house” adoption every Sunday, from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the East Greenwich Animal Hospital.
