Gimme’ Shelter – Benny, Providence Animal Control Center

Please share far and wide for I am Benny and I am in need of a hospice!

I am in good shape for my age which is about 13 years old – I am a big guy who still has some strength for my age and my big self. My hips are in bad shape, my teeth, too.

That doesn’t stop me. I am a ham and I know it, I am outgoing and love people. I am looking to spend whatever time I have left with some special people and maybe some special dogs.

Since my blood work was just OK I don’t think I will ever get neutered, BUT, I might have dental work which is totally up to PAC and my hospice family. Please ask about me and get me outta here!

About the Providence Animal Control Division

The Providence Animal Control Division protects the health and safety of our residents and their pets with progressive leadership and education, and continues to engage the hearts and minds of the community to help all animals.

As of November 2015, the Animal Control Division has adopted a “low risk euthanasia” philosophy of healthy adoptable animals and will continue to improve the live release rate of shelter animals via adoptions, returning strays to their owners, transferring animals to rescues, TNR, programs/services and treating medical cases. We believe that with progressive programs, we can have a more humane City. Through our Gimme Shelter program, PAC is spaying and neutering owned and feral cats for Providence residents. To participate please send a message through our Facebook page at Providence Animal Care Center.
