Why hello there! My name is Belle, and I’m a southern beauty who made the trip from an overcrowded shelter in Georgia to Providence Animal Center in Media in hopes of meeting my forever family. Do you reckon that could be you?!
I am approximately 3 years young and 82 pounds of adorableness. Despite my size, I’m extremely gentle. My friends all say I walk very well on the leash, and I didn’t even mind getting in the car to pose for pictures! I’m a low-key gal with simple needs. Give me some good scratches, and I’ll melt like butter! I absolutely love being around people and getting attention. I’ll even give you my paw to tell you I want more!
What do you say? Do we sound like a match better than peaches and cream?! Walk in to meet me at Providence Animal Center. I can’t wait to fall in love.
Hello, I'm Aneesa! I'm a sweet and silly young adult dog who is patiently waiting on my forever family at Providence Animal Center, in Media. My friends at PAC all love my charming and spunky attitude! My favorite things include cuddles, kisses and tasty treats! Someone loves me so much that they sponsored my adoption fee, which means my adoption is free to a loving home.
Walk in to meet me soon if you think I'm ‘the one’! I'm the packaged deal – I am spayed, microchipped, and up-to-date on vaccinations.

Oliver joined our canine crew needing a little bit of extra love – he had a skin condition that made his hair patchy and skin a bit irritated. With some TLC and medicated baths, Oliver was ready to find his forever where he would be cared for and loved for the rest of his life – and after a few months looking, his forever was finally found! His family writes…
My family adopted Oliver on July 14th and he is doing AMAZING!!! Since the day we brought him home he has fit in with our family and routine so perfectly it’s as if he has lived here all his life! He is the sweetest, most gentle, loving, caring boy ever and we feel so blessed that we were chosen to be Oliver’s forever home everyday we are finding out more tricks and commands that he already knows. He definitely thinks he’s a lap dog lol…an 80 pound lap dog lol.”
Thank you for giving this sweet, sweet boy the forever he deserves!
Oh, hi there! My name is Ruth, and this is my kitten friend Malibu! We’re so excited to meet you! We’re both new arrivals at Providence Animal Center, and currently getting ready for our big adoption day. For me, I’m hoping that’s Saturday when I will make my adoption debut along with nearly 2 dozen puppies and kittens!
I am a puppy in age, looks and character! I have energy to spare and a desire to please. I’m looking for a family who can’t wait to teach me something new every day, and spend our lives together! Do you think that could be with you?! I would love a doggy sibling, but we would have to meet before we seal the deal, and I think I could even live with the right kitty cat friend! Malibu is so paw-some, and I wasn’t too scared to meet her! We were both pretty unsure about the car, but having friends there made it a pretty fun learning experience. Malibu acted like a professional in her harness!
While we are both super adorable, there are also tons of other adorable faces that will make their adoption debut this Saturday – including my four siblings!!! In fact, two dozen kittens and puppies will be available to adopt on July 24th from 12-4pm at Providence Animal Center’s “Welcome Back Adoption Event”! Some pretty cool adult dogs and cats will be there, too. What do you say?! We hope to see you there!
Sloppy kisses & tail wags,

Oh, hiya! My name is Darby Dagan, and it’s a pleasure to meet you! I made the journey from an overcrowded shelter in Florida to Providence Animal Center in hopes of meeting a family to call my own. I hope I’m not coming on too strong here, but I think that could be you!
I am approximately 6 years young, and 62 pounds of handsomeness. My friends all say I am sweet, polite and friendly! I walk well on the leash, love tasty treats (Cheese?

16-year-old Buddy is showing the world that it's never too late for a fresh start in life, and his adopters agree! They write…
Hello, just wanted to share an update on Buddy. He’s been with us for almost a week now and he fits right in as if he’s been here forever. He is truly the sweetest little man and just loves to snuggle. Buddy is doing well with his new doggy sister Sadie and is excellent with our baby visitors. He enjoys his morning “walks” in the strollers and his afternoon naps in the yard. We couldn’t have asked for a better guy.”
Thank you for giving Buddy a home to live life to the fullest. Happy forever, Buddy!

Oh, hi there! My name is Lexie, and I’m so (so, so, so) excited to meet you! I am a recent addition to the adoptable dog crew at Providence Animal Center, after making the journey from an overcrowded shelter in Mississippi, in hopes of meeting my forever family soon. I really feel a connection between us, so maybe that forever family is YOU!
I am approximately 6 months old, so I am still growing and learning every day. I hope my family is ready to teach me some cool tricks because I’m ready to learn them! I walk well on the leash, greet new people politely and with a kiss, and didn’t mind the car too much. I’m sure I’ll get used to it in time!

Hello there, my name is Cleopatra. You may be able to tell just by looking at my regal nature, but I am a gorgeous grey lady and I am patiently waiting on my purr-fect match at Providence Animal Center, in Media. My friends here describe me as confident and independent, as I am quite comfortable hanging out by myself and coming to you when I am ready to socialize. I am very relaxed, and will make a terrific couch-potato companion to a family with children high school aged and up!

Looks like Larry made himself right at home! We love seeing our PAC alum so happy and cozy in their forever homes. Larry's family writes…
Adopted Larry a few weeks ago. Very sweet, well-trained (weeelll!) and silly! Zeus, who we had also adopted from PAC (fka SPCA) had passed away a bit before. My belief is that one passes you on to the next. Thanks Zeus!”
Thank you sharing Larry's happiness with us. Happy forever, Larry!
One of the most unique and rewarding ways you can help animals is by opening your home to a furry houseguest.
A spare bedroom is a penthouse suite for a few kittens. A bowl and a blanket mean the world to a dog. Becoming a foster directly benefits an animal in need of a home, love, and care while also freeing space within Providence Animal Center for others in need! All it takes is a legal adult with a few pet-care essentials – some of which PAC may be able to provide!
My personal experience as a foster has been enjoyable and fulfilling. On multiple occasions, my wife and I have taken in kittens and puppies. Sometimes one, and sometimes a litter of six! They would stay usually two or three weeks – that’s time enough to grow, get fixed per PAC’s lifesaving mission, and be made ready for adoption. Sometimes, adopters were already lined up to receive them so they never even spent a day in a kennel or cage! Each time we had the opportunity to foster, we had a plan and a projected date of departure.
The length of stay can vary depending on the animal and your preferences. This is something our Foster Coordinator can discuss with you!
A foster pet's stay is like any other house pet’s: full of play, food, naps and scratches. It feels great to get to know them and be able to help. The feeding, playtime, and the cleaning (can’t forget the cleaning) are manageable parts of an overall positive experience. After seeing them off, it's so nice to know that you could do it again for another.
It can be hard to say goodbye! In fact, on one occasion, we didn’t. We fell head-over-blue-heelers for a six month old hound from Georgia after we saw how well he fit into our home. Turkey (in front) played nice with our resident bone chewer, Otis (in back) and was very polite with our cats. So, what was supposed to be an overnight stay turned permanent. This is known as “Foster Failing”, and it's a very common occurrence around here.
But hey! The ultimate goal is a happy home!
There's also no feeling like seeing the pets you fostered make a home somewhere else. When we saw pictures of Han here all grown up, we were elated. He had come so far from the energetic fluff ball that hung out in our kitchen for a while.
In 2020, 385 homes took in temporary pets. The support this gives to Providence Animal Center is immeasurable! For each animal in a foster home, another space is available here. This means that PAC can continue to take in animals from overfilled shelters and worse circumstances all across the U.S. – far beyond its actual capacity! The medical care and adoption services enable these animals to find families.
So, what you’re really fostering is families.
When you foster, you are assuring the health, wellness, and comfort of an animal that would not otherwise be guaranteed. It is a vital precursor to housing every dog and cat.
If you are interested in becoming a foster, you can find information here! If fostering is not an option at the moment, consider donating needed resources or money, sponsoring an animal, or joining our Volunteer Program in the near future, when it reopens. Or just tell your friends about it – our community is key!
