Gimme’ Shelter – Flash, at Providence Animal Control

I came in with my brother Petey when my family could no longer care for us. I am a sweet friendly boy who can get excited sometimes when I play fetch or tug with a squeaky toy! I do like other dogs but I don’t take signals well when they tell me to back off…. that could be because I have trouble hearing and maybe trouble seeing (we are going to look into that more with the shelter vet) but I do have an awesome sense of smell!

I am very fun and social, I’m the life of the party!

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.
