Hiya! Are you my FURever family?! Boy, I hope you are.

My name is Porter, and I am one of the adoptable dogs at Providence Animal Center. I'm around 3 years old, a fit 77 pounds, and I'm all set to move right into your heart & home today – already neutered, microchipped & up to date on vaccinations.

The staff think I am often misunderstood because of my intimidating stature. However, I'm just a big softy if you get to know me. I'm sensitive, shy and sweet. I walk well on a leash. I'm looking for a couch for my afternoon naps and maybe even some kid friends who are middle school aged or older. I would prefer a home without cats; they aren't my cup of tea.

My foster family reports that I am house trained and comfortable using a crate, but I haven't needed to use it when they are out doing human stuff. They often find me resting on my footrest of the couch on their return. Guarding the house is hard work... I need to put in a nap every now and then. They don't understand how a cuddle bug like me hasn't been adopted yet!

I'm currently enjoying some time outside of the center of one of PAC's ah-mah-zing fosters. Please fill out the form there, and my people will reach out to your people!

My paws are crossed I will see you very soon!

XO – Porter

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!!

How to Adopt

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 Porter

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 Porter

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.
