An East Greenwich animal shelter that is closing its doors is seeking new homes for its animals.
The East Greenwich Animal Protection League is located at the East Greenwich Animal Hospital, which is closing this week for financial reasons.
Tammy Flanagan of the protection league says that it is fortunate to have received hundreds of applications from people hoping to take in some of the animals.
The group has sheltered homeless cats and dogs for more than three decades.
The shelter is still hoping to raise enough money for a building of its own but if successful it would be months before a new location is ready.
