Bertha and others are in need of loving homes
Calling all animal lovers!

If you're on the lookout for a new pet for you or your family, look no further.

Whether you want a dog, a cat, or even a furry little friend to complete your home, think adoption first! There are hundreds of lovable pets just waiting for you to take them home in rescue leagues and shelters everywhere.

Check out these 10 pets available for adoption from the Providence Animal Rescue League, below

  • Cordelia

    My name is Cordelia. I am a 3 year old medium sized chocolate bear. I have been in the shelter system for about five months trying to find the right home. Despite this, I am resilient and still approach every day with a happy face and wiggly body. I am known here for my bunny hops that I do when I am excited. Staff have been working with me on different things to help me be more adoptable like "sit", "down", and even "roll-over!". I go on lots of field trips with volunteers on the weekends. They take me hiking and to dog friendly bars. They say I am such a sweet girl and decompress a lot out on these trips out of the shelter. Because I am still working on my manners, I would do best in a home with teens or adults only. I am dog social but am a bit too enthusiastic in greeting them so I need to be the only dog for the time being. Also, I have no history with cats so a feline free home would be best. So if you are an active person who would love a companion to adventure with, come meet me today!

  • Otis

    My name is Otis! I am a 9 year old large sized American Bulldog mix. I have been around children and have lived with a cat before. I used to love snuggling with my cat friend in my previous home and especially loved when she groomed me. I can be a little reactive to dogs on leash but am working on it with staff and excelling (what can I say, I love treats!). I would do best as an only dog because of this. My friends here at PARL are sending me home with 3 free training sessions to help my new adopters work with me on my leash reactivity. Are you looking for a spunky senior to cuddle up with at night! I may be the one for you. Come meet me today!

  • Bertha

    Hey there! My name is Bertha! I am a big, beautiful, bodacious girl looking for her forever home. I am about 2 years old. I was found as a stray in Providence so staff don't know a ton about my past. But what they do know is that I LOVE to play with toys. I also know "sit"! I would do best in a home where I was the only pet but kids are okay with me! Come meet me today!

  • Chloe and Papi

    Our names are Chloe and Papi. We are young, small sized mixed breed pair looking for our forever home. We are a little nervous with new people so we need a patient adopter to take things nice and slow. If you are interested in us, come meet us today!

    Chloe & Papi is a part of our Special Adoptions program “PARL Pals”
    Some animals, like people, just belong together. PARL Pals are pets that may have lived together all of their lives or maybe they just bonded during their stay at our shelter. Either way, we just can’t bear to see them separated! It’s our hope that a special adopter will feel the same way as we do and adopt them together. To make the deal even sweeter, we’ve made their adoption fees a 2-for-1 deal!

  • Jinx

    My name is Jinx and I am a 1 1/2 year old male. I am a curious, active and spirited guy looking for a home that embraces my independence and gives me plenty of opportunities to play and explore. My feline-ality is "Executive". I have to say, I'm a busy cat. First, I've got to check out what's happening out the window. Next, I'll see if any closets or cupboards need looking into. And then there are my naps? can't be late for those. I can fit a little socializing into my schedule. Shall we plan on breakfast and dinner? I hope you like kibbles.

  • Ginger

    My name is Ginger and I am a 1 year old female. I am petite little lady that is looking for a very special person to help me build confidence and feel comfortable in my new home. Do you have some patience to work with me while I work through these issues? Please come in and ask the staff about meeting me. Bonus points if you have a cat-friendly cat to help show me the ropes. My feline-ality is "Private Investigator". I'm working undercover to keep an eye on you and your household. You may not even know you're under surveillance. I can vanish into thin air if anyone or anything interferes with my investigation. If you need a cat who knows how to stay out of trouble and will always keep your secrets, I just might take your case.

  • Pooh Bear

    My name is Pooh Bear and I am an 11 year old male. I have a heart of gold and you can tell how sweet I am just by looking at me! I am also quite sensitive, so I am looking for a home where I can be the only pet and can have somebody near me to pamper me and tell me how special I am. My feline-ality is "Secret Admirer". When it comes to relationships, I'm very level-headed. I don't leap in paws first, if you know what I mean. But give me a little time, and then I'll shower you with purrs, head-butts, and plenty of lap time. In the meantime, you may not see a lot of me but I'll be thinking a lot of you!

  • Gidget

    My name is Gidget and I am a 9-year-old female. I am a spunky older lady that likes to make new friends, but I also enjoy a good cat nap in the window for some quiet time. My feline-ality is "Personal Assistant". You're working on the computer? Let me press the keys. Reading the paper? I'll hold the pages down for you. Watching TV? I'll just plop in your lap so you can pet me. I love an orderly household, don't you? I'll help you with all your chores, and I'll help you relax when we're done. You'll wonder how you ever managed without me.

  • Tails

    My name is Tails and I am a 10 1/2 year old female. I am a senior lady looking for a special home to pamper me and keep me healthy on my medications. Like all sidekicks, I'm just plain good company. I like attention, and I also like my solitude. I don't go looking for trouble but I'm no scaredy-cat, either. If you are looking for a steady companion to travel with you on the road of life, look no further.
