Project Spay
Calling all Supporters for an Upcoming Campaign in our Community: In the upcoming weeks Project Spay will be Launching a Cat Food Donation campaign to help us help the abandoned, homeless and feral population around our area. Despite our TNR efforts the population continues to increase due to irresponsible people, we need YOUR help and compassion by donating unopened canned and dry Cat Food. We are working with our graphic design volunteer to design and make up flyers and posters to be distributed.
While we work on getting this campaign off the ground, we are in immediate need of selecting Donation Drop Off Locations in Swansea, Seekonk, Rehoboth, and surrounding areas. Calling all Supporters, who has a business, or their Employer that would be willing to be a dedicated Donation Drop Off Location??? Project Spay volunteers will handle doing periodic pick ups of all donations. Please send an email to projectspayrescue@gmail.com, a pm or comment here if you or your Employer can help us help the abandoned, unwanted and homeless feral cats by being Donation Drop Off Location.
As a Reminder, Project Spay has been accepted into Chewy.com’s Rescue Referral Program. Every visitor who uses our custom Project Spay link below, and makes a qualifying purchase (first time, one per household) gets Project Spay a $20 donation credit! That $20 donation helps to fund the important work our Shelter does for our Fosters and Feral cats!
All you need to do is click on this link and shop.

The Swansea Public Library is initiating an outreach program to provide services to patrons who are homebound due to health or transportation issues.
The library will work closely with each patron to identify the patron’s preferences. Specific titles or authors may be requested or the librarian will make selections based upon the patron’s interests. The items will then be delivered and picked up. Books in both regular and large print, as well as audiobooks, music CDs, movies and magazines are available.
If you or someone you know could benefit from this service, please contact the Swansea Public Library at 508-674-9609.

Swansea's Veterans Memorial Green - If you wish to purchase a lasered brick to honor a veteran living or deceased call Don at the American legion post 303. His cell phone number is (774) 488 4288. The bricks are $50.00 and can contain 3 lines lasered to honor a veteran for their service to our country. The Veteran being honored does not have to be a Swansea resident.
