Gimme’ Shelter – Ernest belongs to ____

Normally we post cats and dogs at Animal Control that end up there surrendered, found, brought in by public servants, etc. – but Ernest definitely has been somebody’s kitty! He was found in the 02909 area of Providence – which is in the Mt. Pleasant, Olneyville, area – so he could have come from outside this area near Providence College or surrounding communities. Here’s a map of 02909:

If he looks familiar, give your friends a call – or come and get him for your home. Ernest wants to go back to living the life of a domestic cat.

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.
