Silent Auction items will be up for bid at the art show and local musicians will perform during the event. Children's activities will be held throughout the day.
Family Pet Advocates is holding a pet supply distribution day on Wednesday, July 17 from noon to 3:00 pm at Tiverton Public Library, 34 Roosevelt Ave., Tiverton, RI. The event is not affiliated with the Tiverton Public Library. Tiverton and Little Compton, RI residents in need of assistance are welcome to stop by to pick up pet food and/or supplies for their animals. Dry and canned pet food will be available on a first come, first serve basis. An ID showing proof of residency will be required and forms may be filled out in advance or at the time of pick up.
Family Pet Advocates asks that those families whose pets are on restricted diets (grain free, urinary health, etc.) and those who need specific supplies (cat litter, scoops, leashes, collars, etc.) request those items in advance. Pet parents may fill out an application for assistance prior to the distribution day which can be found at https://www.familypetadvocates.org/pet-supplies, or they can contact Family Pet Advocates by email email@example.com or phone 401-297-1426 with questions or requests.
