Who doesn't love a happy ending? Aslan, a stunning orange long-haired cat, came to Providence Animal Center from a local shelter. It wasn't long before someone visited the Adoption Center and fell in love with this cuddly boy. His adopter, Samantha, recently wrote an email stating how happy she was with her new companion. She said, “Aslan is a perfect cat and I'm glad I adopted him and gave him the opportunity to a better life.”
Does your heart melt when you see a face like this? If so, come visit the Adoption Center and spend some time with one of seven Australian Shepherd mix puppies that are available for adoption. Pictured is of one the two females; she is here with her sister and five brothers. At just 10 weeks old, they're just babies and all need loving adoptive homes.

Violet was a sweet homeless blue Pitty blend that came to the Adoption Center from a crowded shelter in Philadelphia. She was recently adopted and could not be doing any better in her new home. Violet’s adopters sent us a follow-up message and had only good things to say about her. She is working on housetraining, and even gets along with the family’s two cats! Here is an excerpt from the message her new parents sent us recently:
“We could not be more happy to have Violet as a part of our family! Please know that we love her and she has made new friends with all of our neighbors. Here's a picture of the two rulers of our home!”
Stop by this St. Pitty's Day Weekend, or before!
Hi, my name is O’Malley! I’m a Pit Bull Terrier looking for a great home. I came all the way from Yonkers Animal Shelter in New York, where I lived for 3 and a half years! The great people at Delco saw me and knew I would make an amazing pet, so they brought me back to their Adoption Center to give me a new chance at getting adopted.
So…Spay (or Neuter) Your Pet Today!

The Providence Animal Center will host its second Spay Day of the year on December 4, medical where cats from the public can be spayed or neutered for just $15.
“Programs like Spay Day help us get to the root of the homeless animal problem, and ” said Director of Community Relations Justina Calgiano, clinic “which directly supports our lifesaving mission.”
In it’s first year as a lifesaving organization, the subsidized spay/neuter program is just one of many preventative programs it continues to put in place, along with low-cost public veterinary clinics, a pet food bank and county-wide mobile vaccination and microchipping clinics.
Thanks to your support of our lifesaving organization, Providence Animal Center was able to help homeless animals impacted by Hurricane Sandy.
We reached out to multiple animal shelters around the New Jersey Shore and New York areas and finally came across Woodbridge Animal Shelter in Sewaren, NJ, and Monmouth County Providence Animal Center, in Eatontown, NJ. Woodbridge's animal shelter was flooded halfway up the wall. It was so devastated by Superstorm Sandy, they had to evacuate the animals by boat. Monmouth County Providence Animal Center was serving as temporary housing for owned pets because their shore areas were so severely devastated, leaving so many without homes. The more homeless animals we were able to transfer to our facility to adopt out, the more spaces for the loved pets of families who were temporarily without a home.
As Billy Joel sang, it's all about keeping the faith. We knew eventually Dakota, a 5-year-old Pit Bull Terrier-Lab mix rescued by our amazing Humane Officer Bill Vernon from life in a yard with her mom, still-homeless Princess Pumpkin, would find forever. But it would take unique and big-hearted people.
And here they are.
While Hurricane Sandy was not as wrathful to Delaware County as predicted, we were well-equipped to deal with a severe hurricane thanks only to the support of the community.
Between Friday and Sunday, we performed 35 adoptions and placed a whopping 85 animals in to temporary foster homes in preparation for the storm.
A team of six people stayed overnight on Monday to ease the anxiety of the animals still at the shelter and be on-hand in the event of any urgent situations. The shelter suffered minimal damage including a down tree and debris and is asking for donations of Home Depot gift cards to buy supplies needed for the clean-up effort. A special thanks to the Niemeyer Corporation for donating the use of a leaf blower.
