Gimme’ Shelter – BlackBerry at Providence Animal Control Center

Hello! I am a young male goofball, just under one year old. I came to PAC because I was bitten in the butt, that’s right! That made me upset for a while, a good while, and I wasn’t neutered so there’s that.

I got stitches and cleaned up at the vet and I got to simmer down for a while and THEN moved to a larger space. I am feeling myself now. I roll around, I LOVE to play, and I am very out going.

I really like female cats and would love to live with one my age, someone who can handle my energy. I need to learn some manners, like … how not to play with my teeth, I didn’t get to learn those things as a wild child on the streets. If you think you’ve got the home for me, please send an email! I would love to get outta here (Sorry, I can only be adopted in RI because I was bitten by an unknown assailant.

If you can see me, I am still available! No phone calls please, everything is done online and we do need an application submitted and approved before scheduling a visit. We differ from other shelters by offering a one on one experience between you, our staff and the animal or animals you’ve chosen to become a new family member! Please email

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. We do this by engaging the hearts and minds of the community to help all animals.

Since 2015, we have adopted a “low risk euthanasia” philosophy of healthy adoptable animals. We 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.
