Gimme’ Shelter – Mercedes is at the Providence Animal Control Center




Oh hello! I was found in a stolen car. Imagine! I think my owner and I were living in the car but, it didn’t work out. The car was towed and I was found inside. Thank goodness it wasn’t too hot or too cold out at the time.

I am a young female kitty, about a year or so old, maybe less. It’s hard to tell since I am so small BUT, I was coming into heat, too. Thankfully, I have been spayed – no kittens for me! My name might be Mercedes but… I wasn’t found in one, LOL. I am outgoing and very friendly.

If you can see me, I am still available! No phone calls please, everything is done online and we do need an application submitted and approved before scheduling a visit. We differ from other shelters by offering a one on one experience between you, our staff and the animal or Animals you’ve chosen to become a new family member! Please email [email protected]


If you have general calls on adoption, call (401) 680-7591 – but it’s always better to email us.

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. We do this by engaging the hearts and minds of the community to help all Animals.

Since 2015, we have adopted a “low risk euthanasia” philosophy of Healthy adoptable Animals. We 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.
