This information is provided by the PawPrint Press. An educational community service project established by Michaiah and Abigail Kojoian. The Cranston Police Department is not responsible for the content.

The PawPrint Press was created by two local kids whose experience with the shelter inspired them to become adoption advocates for the animals housed there. It was first published in 2010 and locally distributed in their Eden Park neighborhood. It is their hope that every animal in the shelter will be adopted into a forever home.
