The Friends of the North Smithfield Animal Shelter…
is an organization dedicated to animal well-being and the promotion of the human-animal bond through programs of education, advocacy and assistance. The North Smithfield Chapter of Volunteer Services for Animals (VSA) was formed in 1978 with just three volunteers providing services seven days a week; 365 days per year.

All three original volunteers remain active today!

If you would like to post your pet’s picture and happy story on our Happy Tails page or share your departed and beloved pet’s picture and touching story on our Rainbow Bridge memorial page, please email your photo and story to: Donations are appreciated, but not required.
