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
I'm a 3 year old, 19 pound face-licking, couch-cuddling dog you'll ever meet. I love walks and car rides, treats, lying in the sun, body massages, back scratches, and did I mention cuddling with my human? My foster mum calls me silly as I like to amuse myself with my toys but I also like to play fetch and tug with her too. I'm good with dog savvy cats and will sometimes try to play with them. I'm great in the crate and I'm housebroken as long as I'm kept on a strict schedule.
Do you like big mutts? If so, I am your man! Weighing in at 85 lbs. I am the biggest lap dog you could ever hope to meet. Yep, you read that right. I just love to sit in my foster dad's lap. It was love at first sight for me. A good judge of character, I know what I want when it comes to family. A quiet home with experienced "big dog" people and no young uns would be perfect. Because I was not treated kindly in the past, I need time to feel safe and to establish trust before a lot of demands are placed upon me.
At 2 1/2 years old, I am in doggie adolescence. Like all adolescents I need patience and training to mature into the awesome dog I am destined to be. There are a lot of theories as to my ancestry. Am I a Redbone Coonhound, a Labrador Retriever, a Vizsla or a Rhodesian Ridgeback? Whatever the mixture of breeds, the result is a devastatingly handsome guy.
My name is Toby. I look like a mini lab retriever so if you love labs but don't want a large dog, I could be your guy. I have a sweet, gentle disposition and love to be outside, but snuggled up on the couch is good too. I am quiet in the house, good in a crate and get along with men, women, kids and other dogs. I can be a little timid at first but I warm up quickly. I was living on the streets until I got picked up by Animal Control so I have had some scary experiences in my life.
My name is Shane and I am thought to be a 1-year old Chihuahua/Spaniel mix. I weigh 14lbs, I was found as a local stray and really hope to find my forever people soon!
I love other dogs and currently live with several others around my size. I also love to run and play outside! I will entertain myself out in the yard or play with my people and dog friends. I love to go on leash walks, but am really excited! My foster family says that I pull on the leash, but I can’t help it! There is so much fun stuff outside!
My name is Simba, and I’m looking for a quiet household to call home! I came from living with the same nice man my entire life, but when he became hospitalized for a long-term illness, he sadly had to ask Broken Tail Rescue to find me a new family.
Allie is kind of a diva in the best way possible. She is very curious- she likes to follow you around the house and prefers affection in small doses. She is on the smaller side with a beautiful, soft calico coat that barely sheds.
Allie may be twelve but she looks and acts like a five year old! She is always bouncing around, exploring boxes, hiding under blankets and making herself little nests on the couch.
Cecilia is a beautiful gray tabby, about 2 years old, who's initially shy but warms up to pets and cheek scritches. She's down on her knees, begging you please to come home.

This little bundle of love is looking for the right home! Ellie is a gorgeous, charming girl with a small stature and an incredibly big personality. At one year old, this little cat is still incredibly kittenish and will impress anyone with her daring feats of acrobatics during playtime. Despite her wild streak, she also loves nothing more than to be around people, and will follow you from room to room, always resting nearby and leaping into your arms or lap to cuddle whenever given the chance. She has a loud, sweet purr and loves to trill to announce her presence in a room!
My name's Puddy. That's Puddy like Puddy-Tat or Puddy like clay, you choose. I answer to both!
I lost my previous home because my owner passed away. It's been a sad time for me, but things are looking up now that I have a new foster home to explore and my purr is back! I'm independent, very gentle, and will let you know when I want some head scratches. You might think I'm shy but I just have a soft meow. Oh, and I'm 8 years young!
