Shelter Animal of the Week


Kind of impersonal, isn’t it?

Her name is Juliet. At least that’s what she’s been called for the last month, since she was picked up on Maplewood Avenue. She not only has a name, but she has feelings: a bit shy in her new location, confused as to how she ended up in a shelter, perhaps a bit frightened at being in a cage surrounded by others like herself. But if there is such a thing as hope, Juliet has that, too. Hope that she gets adopted into a home where people love her and take care of her so she never has to experience this discomfiture again.

Juliet is about 8 months old – just a kitten. She has long tiger-and-white hair that should be brushed to keep it nice. As a young cat, she will adjust nicely into a loving home. Please visit the Cranston Animal Shelter to see Juliet, or any of the others who also need a home.

The adoption fee for Juliet is $95. This fee must be paid with a check or money order and includes all initial vaccinations, heartworm testing, and spaying/neutering. To Ensure we adopt all of our residents into responsible homes, we require adopters to provide proof of home ownership or a notarized letter of permission from their landlord. If you are hoping to adopt an animal but think that Juliet may not be the right fit for your home, please look for “Animal of the Week” article featured next week or pick up a copy of the PawPrint Press, our quarterly newsletter for the Cranston Animal Shelter featuring the animals available for adoption. We distribute it at local businesses and libraries in Cranston as well as at the shelter itself. You could also view the digital version of the PawPrint Press, by visiting the Cranston Police Department’s Facebook page or web page at and clicking on the Animal Shelter and PawPrint Press tab. Also, please do not hesitate to visit or call the Cranston Animal Shelter to see if Juliet is still available or if you have a question about any of our other animals. Please know that before an animal can be taken from his/her kennel, you must fill out our adoption application. These applications are completely non-binding and allow us to learn more about our potential adopters as well as shielding our residents from people who use the shelter as a petting zoo. The staff at the Cranston Animal Shelter is very dedicated to matching all of our animals to the right homes.
