As fate would have it, during one of our visits to ACCT Philly to find some dogs to bring back to PAC for adoption, we met Ruby Rose and instantly made a connection with her. She sat in her kennel so quiet and calm, longing to go on a walk. She scurried outside to potty and then jumped in our laps for cuddles. We told her it would be okay and that she was going to leave with us soon. She got in the crate in the van and settled in for the trip back to PAC. Once here she was so happy, excitable and energized! She loved curling up on our heated kennel floors and burying her head in fleece blankets to nap.
Since then, Ruby Rose got to know some of our volunteers that would become her “people” here- taking her on car rides, walks and jogs in the neighborhood. She’s grown to love us and us her but we all know it’s more than time for her to move on to a forever home. We're all hoping she doesn’t spend another season homeless in the Center. She’s a great dog ready for a great life with you!
Ruby Rose has been on sleepovers with volunteers- it’s reported: “Family included the husband, wife & 2 daughters aged 16 and 19, in a quiet home with no other pets. Ruby LOVED playing in the fenced in yard especially with her toys! Ruby Rose is a very happy, active girl that likes to be around people. Once she gets her zoomies out, she relaxes well in the house. At night she slept with the children. She takes treats gently, keeps everyone laughing, and is very athletic. She is both house and crate trained!”
Ruby Rose’s ideal home is YOURS – as long as you don’t have any other pets. Fish are okay though! So are kids who are 8 & older! Ruby's forever family will be an active one who can provide her with the physical enrichment she needs to be the best Ruby she can be.
Some dogs get overlooked for one reason or another. For Ruby Rose, when people come to meet & walk her she may not pay you much mind. We think it’s her not getting her hopes up that she’ll be leaving for a forever home. If you give her a chance and give her a little time, you’ll see the Ruby Rose we see every day. One that will smother you with kisses & that will make you smile with her playful antics. We promise she’ll be a loyal, loving dog and you won’t regret bringing her into your heart and home.
Ruby Rose is around 3 & 1/2 years old and about 46 pounds. If you are interested in getting to know her in person, please schedule an appointment here. We hope to see you very soon!
BONUS: A generous donor is eager to help her find my forever home, so they have sponsored her adoption fee! That means she can join your family today for FREE! YAY!
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!

Providence Animal Center relies on adoption fees and donations to save pets! Adoption fees vary per pet.
We are offering adoptions by appointment only at this time. 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!
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.
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.
