Meet Ellie, the very special girl who is waiting for a special person to love her and give her a good life. Ellie was rescued from an overcrowded shelter and brought our lifesaving center, where she is currently waiting for the right home. Ellie has FELV so it’s important her new home can give her just a little extra care so she stays happy & healthy. If you aren’t familiar with FELV, it stands for Feline Leukemia Virus but it’s not contagious to dogs or people. This means that Ellie could live with another FELV+ cat, or with other cats who have been vaccinated for FELV. She is spayed, microchipped and up-to-date on vaccinations. Looking for a kitten? Kittens are 25% off until August 17. Join us on August 18 for Clear the Shelters, where all pets will have waived fees for one whole day. Help #ClearTheShelter!
Dakota was once a homeless girl, now in the most loving forever home she could have found. Her family adopted her from a past King of Prussia event that we hold a few times a year. You never know who you are going to come across that changes your life. Dakota’s mom loves her so much she is going to pay it forward for another family and sponsor a pet in need.

Her mom said: “Here is Dakota (pictured above), she’s so sweet with everyone and other dogs! She loves to snuggle!”
We hope life treats you and your family great Dakota!
Clear the Shelters is our largest event of the year, and it’s happening on Saturday! We have so many amazing, friendly pets who will be waiting for homes on Saturday, August 18, from 11am to 6pm. Cats, kittens, dogs and cats will have NO ADOPTION FEES, but please expect a $10 processing fee for every adoption.
Clear the Shelters is NBC10/Telemundo’s annual effort to help clear out shelters across the country. Last year, more than 80,000 dogs and cats found new homes because of this big event!
If you plan on participating in our Clear the Shelter event, here are some helpful tips and requirements that should be fulfilled before taking you can take your furever friend home:
- A completed adoption application, which can be downloaded, filled out and brought with you the day of the event
- A driver’s license or a state-issued ID with your current address showing you are at least 18 years old
- The owner of the home must consent to the adoption of the animal.
- If you rent, we require a copy of your lease stating that you are allowed to have pets. If the lease doesn’t state anything regarding owning pet, we’ll need an official letter from your landlord. Since many rental offices are closed on Saturday, try to get this ahead of time and bring the letter with you.
- If you own your home, please bring a copy of your deed, mortgage payment book or tax bill.
- All members of the household must meet and approve of the new furry family member.
- If you are planning to adopt a dog and presently have a dog(s), all dogs must meet at the Adoption Center under the supervision of a trained Providence Animal Center Animal Care Associate. This means, if you have a dog of your own, bring him/her with you the day of the event so they can meet the new pet.
- If you have veterinary records for current or previous pets, please bring them if possible.
- A monetary donation. We rely on donations and adoption fees to keep saving animals like the new forever friend you will be rescuing. Each animal we care for costs us hundreds of dollars. By receiving adoption fees during adoption, we recoup some costs, but by waiving adoption fees for this special event, we are sincerely hoping you will help us make up for it with a donation. Any adopter who donates over $25 will receive a special gift!
- Don’t forget your wallet at home. Each adoption will be subject to a $10 processing fee, and any additional donation you can make on top of that will be so helpful to support our privately funded lifesaving mission. All major credit cards are accepted at the time of adoption processing.
Our adoption process is on a first good home come, first good home served basis when all requirements are met and the application is approved. We do not place holds on animals, so be sure to have all of the above requirements met.
Be sure to wear sunblock and be prepared for any type of weather – including the heat and maybe even a little rain! Wear comfortable clothing and footwear in case you have to wait in line. We plan to have snacks and water available while waiting. We’ll also fun ways you can support our mission to help us save future pets in need while earning you a chance to win something special for yourself.
We are looking forward to clearing the shelter, but we need your help: come out and adopt! If you can’t adopt, consider paying it forward and donating to cover the tremendous cost of waiving all adoption fees. Join us on Facebook throughout the day while we live broadcast updates and fun surprises. The more animals we find homes for, the more animals in need we can help. Remember, you are saving two lives when you adopt – the one you are welcoming into your family and the animal at risk in need of saving!
Here is a sneak peak at some of the pets that will have waived fees:

Dakota came to our Center as a scared, homeless girl who just needed a shoulder to lean on and someone to show her that loves exits in the world. Today, she is living the life with an amazing family who has spoiled and smothered her with love.
Here is what her family had to say about her:
“We rescued her from Providence Animal Center as a displaced, skinny little 8-month-old baby. At 5-years-old, she’s a healthy, feisty ball of energy and fun! Our cuddle bug! xoxoxoxoxo Adopt, don’t shop!”
