Gimme Shelter – Providence Animal Control – meet Baxter!

NEW FEATURE! We are pleased to bring you this regular feature with the Providence Animal Control Division – look for new friends to adopt.

This is Baxter, he is a very special guy who likes to give headbutts. Baxter was relinquished to Providence Animal Control for a scratch, he was 8 months old and not neutered. Come to find out he was acquired at a very young age, too young to learn how to “cat” and Baxter has been socially awkward for it, BUT he is learning how to be a cat with us!

Baxter would still do best as an only cat with a catio, if possible, as he is a door dasher. Baxter is very smart and highly trainable and motivated to learn. He likes to jump and explore and talk to you in a range of kitty meow octaves. Baxter’s personality is so big that he will be all you need.

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.
