WARWICK, R.I. (AP) - An animal shelter is looking for foster homes as it’s forced to vacate its temporary location.

The East Greenwich Animal Protection League will have to leave its temporary Warwick location by Thursday because pets are banned by the condominium complex next door. Shelter officials say they will be fined by the condo owners if they do not remove the dogs.

Tammy Flanagan, the shelter’s executive director, says they have received complaints about barking and smells since their move.

The shelter moved to the temporary location, an old veterinary hospital, in October. Their permanent Cranston facility is still under construction.

Flanagan says she is hopeful as emails to take in the nearly 20 dogs continue to pour in.
