East Greenwich Animal Protection League is asking for help in the search for a new home.The
Recent building plans "have fallen through," according to a post on the league's Facebook page and "We are in NEED of our own facility. Any assistance or ideas for a current facility or property for sale/lease please contact us ASAP!!"
In December, Director Tammy Flanagan said the search for a new place has been underway for more than a year. The league had been sharing space with the Greenwich Bay Animal Hospital since 1980, but Greenwich Bay raised rates as of Jan. 1.
The higher rates plus substantial grown over the years had put the league on the search for a new home, but now, the search is apparently even more pressing.
"PLEASE HELP us find a new location!! Do you know anyone with a building for sale/lease or land where we could potentially build a shelter?? Maybe there is an existing place where we could house our animals?? Please let us know of any ideas you may have...we are open to all suggestions!! Thanks & please share!!" another Facebook post stated.
Flanagan said even if the shelter has to move out of East Greenwich, they'd still serve the town and its residents, promising "we won't walk away from East Greenwich."
