Adoptions

The adoption program is Providence Animal Center’s top strategy in saving lives. Homeless pets are spayed or neutered and vaccinated before being placed up for adoption. Approved adoptions may be completed in one visit to the Center. In 2022, we placed a 3,898 homeless animals into loving forever homes and achieved a 95% save rate.

Through our Transport Program, we rescue cats and dogs in need from high-risk animal shelters near and far, therefore alleviating their space so animals will not have to be put down. Because of our vast medical resources, we are able to save animals with special medical needs from an animal shelter where they would otherwise never be given a second chance. In 2022, we saved 3,231 animals from high-risk shelters.

Adults

Our Wellness Clinic offers basic prevention veterinary services and may also be able to assist with diagnosing and treating common illnesses like upper respiratory infections, worms and fleas. We offer a range of surgical services including spay/neuter, mass removal, soft tissues, dental extraction, and more. Providence Animal Center has been granted a 26-foot, fully equipped spay/neuter mobile unit thanks to Fido Fixers, a Connecticut-based nonprofit who rent out their mobile units to worthy nonprofits for the purpose of providing spay and neuter surgeries in the most-needed areas. In 2022, our veterinarians performed 10,605 surgeries, including 8,540 spay/neuter surgeries and 2,065 lifesaving specialty surgeries, and treated 6,489 public Wellness Clinic patients. We held 64 low-cost vaccine clinics both onsite and offsite and performed 1,281 mobile surgeries on our mobile surgical unit.

Our Humane Society Police Officer investigates acts of cruelty within Delaware County, Pennsylvania.
