Located along Kingstown Road, watch for the sign with a lifesaver for an “O” in SOS, and you’re there.

What makes it a Rhody Gem?

Little Rhody’s only pet store to donate 100 percent of their profits to animals in need, SOS is an ideal spot for spoiling your own critter with healthy treats and toys while also feeling good about the furry friends you’re helping with a purchase. As part of Save One Soul Animal Rescue League, the shop is committed to creating a personalized customer experience to help you find the perfect products and services for your pet. The shop also houses The Pooch Parlor and Bad Dog Basics, which offer grooming and training, respectively. “We strive to make each guest in our store feel like family: comfortable enough to share their stories and challenges, and safe enough to be open to good advice and new ways of looking at things,” says founder Emma Dawley. She adds, “SOS reTAIL is a collaborative effort of several great organizations… and that’s the feeling our customers get when experiencing our store – that they are part of something bigger than themselves.”
