Hey! Have you ever seen a dog as adorable as me?! Can you believe I’m homeless and am waiting for a wonderful person or family to adopt me? Great dogs like me end up in animal shelters every day- I know, it’s so hard to believe but it’s true!

My name is Bernadette, and I just joined the adoptable doggy crew at Providence Animal Center. I'm around 1 year old, about 44 pounds, and I'm all set to move right into your heart & home today – already:

  • spayed
  • microchipped
  • up to date on vaccinations

Hmmm, let's see what do you need to know about me. I am super sweet and love my people. I give enthusiastic jumps when greeting my people — don't worry it's only in bursts. I walk well on the leash and with other dogs. I'm really a big fan of other dogs.

The staff describe me as shy and sweet, but oh, so polite. I can be misunderstood because I tend to be cautious as first. Don't fret, I warm up (and treats don't hurt)! I would love a quiet home that has a playful doggie roommate or regular trips to dog parks/day care. And if you have kids in the household, the staff think I would do best with kiddos 15+. 

The staff would love to match you with your new BFF and hopefully, that’s ME! Call or come by the center – no appointment necessary!

Wiggle butts and happy jumps,


P.S. Someone loves me so much that they have sponsored my adoption fee! That means that I can move into your forever loving home for FREE!


Adoption center hours of operation are: Tuesday-Friday: 12–7PM, Saturday & Sunday: 12–5PM, closed Monday.

Providence Animal Center relies on adoption fees and donations to save pets! Adoption fees vary per pet. To find out this pet’s adoption fee or for more information, please call the Adoption Center with this pet’s ID number.

It's so easy to adopt from PAC- once a match is made, you fill out an application and can go home the same day with your new pet! Visit this link to learn more about our adoption process.

    Walk-in adoptions are back at PAC! Stop by our Adoption Center during our hours of operation Tuesday-Sunday to meet our available pets. Be sure to check the LOCATION of the pet you are interested in prior to coming in because some pets currently reside in foster homes. To meet a pet in a foster home, a meeting must be set up with our foster coordinator by filling out the adoption profile in the pet's bio.

    View most of our adoptable dogs here and cats through this link. Once you see a pet you like, follow the instructions in his/her bio to schedule a meeting. For updates about when puppies & kittens will be available, be sure to follow us on Facebook.

    Thank you for your understanding and please consider donating today to help our lifesaving work continue during this challenging time!


    Even If You Can't Adopt, You Can Still Help!

    Foster Bernadette

    Foster parents are always needed for kittens, dogs and puppies. Some pets need as little as 2 weeks of care while others may need a few months.

    No matter how little or as much time as you can dedicate, there’s an animal that would benefit from your help.

    Sponsor Bernadette

    Your generous sponsorship will help cover the cost of the adoption package. It will also waive the chosen animal’s adoption fee!

    Pet sponsors receive updates about their sponsored pet and will be notified when that animal has found his or her forever home.
