Colby (3)


Gender: Male

Size: Medium

Age: Adult

Hello! 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 Colby and I just joined the adoptable doggy crew at Providence Animal Center from the sunny state of Florida. I'm around 7 years old, about 42 pounds, and I'm all set to move right into your heart & home today – already neutered, microchipped & up to date on vaccinations.

The staff would love to match you with your new best friend forever – and hopefully that's me! I have been enjoying the scenic grounds here at PAC as well as socializing with my fellow dogs. Even at 7 years old, I am a bouncy and playful gentleman. I enjoy pets and cuddles from the staff and volunteers (check out my photos!). I get to go on car rides. I'm a great passenger — not to brag. AND my pal Dexter and I had the best time exploring and hiking the nearby trails.

The staff think my ideal home would be with human friends who are 18 & older. While I am friendly with some special dog pals here at PAC, I would prefer to be the only dog in the home. You see, I like to be spoiled and get all the attention. I did well on my cat test, so I could live with a cat roommate with a slow introduction!

What do you say? Can we be best buds? Please complete an adoption profile and email to my contact at PAC at My people will be in touch!

Tail wags and smiles,


P.S. Someone is so excited for me to find my fur-ever home, that they have sponsored my adoption fee! That means I can join your family today for FREE! Woohoo!!


During your appointment, you will be able to meet a selection of pets in the Kennels or Cattery that day. New pets are arriving daily!

Please note: Some pets are still in fabulous foster homes, so be sure to check the pet’s ‘location’ in their listing prior to scheduling an appointment. To meet a pet currently in a foster home, follow the instructions listed in their bio. Thank you for your flexibility during this challenging time! We can’t wait to see your masked face!

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.

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

    Foster Colby

    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 Colby

    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.

    As of Jan. 6, our Center is temporarily closed. We hope to re-open within 3 weeks.
