Each year we hold a raffle of donated items from various venues (ie: Roger Williams Park Zoo admission tickets, New England Aquarium admission tickets, dog and cat toys, various apparel from different companies that sponsor us and more!). The proceeds from the raffle go to an animal related non-profit organization. This year we have chosen Ocean State Animal Coalition (OSAC).
Established in 2007, OSAC is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the status and well-being of animals in Rhode Island. Consistent with its mission, in July 2010 OSAC opened The Rhode Island Community Spay/Neuter Clinic (RICSNC), a high quality, high volume spay/neuter clinic for dogs and cats. Through the clinic, OSAC is working to reduce the homeless, abandoned and feral animal populations. They are committed to reducing the number of animals entering shelters and eliminating the need for euthanasia as a means of population control.
The proceeds will be earmarked for feral spay/neuter purposes.
