Meet Waldo!  Or will you?  He's a mysterious guy whose always playing hard to get.  He currently holds the Guinness Book World Record for "Longest running game of hide and seek" (not factually verified).  The first 2 photos are what your house will look like after you adopt him.  He won't occupy your La-Z-boy,  nor your couch.  Not much will change!  However,  you will enjoy a constant rousing game of "Where's Waldo?",  not to be confused with the popular children's book.  Waldo is sadly homeless at no fault of his own - his owner passed away and things haven't been easy for him.  Waldo came to us as a 6 year old cat,  and he just recently celebrated his 8th birthday by dining lavishly on squeaky mice toys - in his favorite closet, out of sight.  He's a very shy guy who only comes out to eat and perform his calisthenics when you're sleeping.  "Keeps to himself" would be putting it modestly.  Waldo can live with and has lived with other dogs and cats,  but he doesn't play much and has stated that he 'enjoys' their company about as much as he 'enjoys' a bad batch of catnip.  His foster dad reports that he adores treat-time once in a while,  but Waldos work schedule is seemingly always booked solid.  He is a healthy adult, about 8 years old, and he's neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and litter trained.  Can you find it in your heart to rescue him?  Email our Foster Care Coordinator at if you'd like to speak with his foster family about the intricacies of this notoriously absent cat!

Providence Animal Center is funded solely by adoption fees and donations. Adoption fees vary per animal, please call the Adoption Center and reference this animal's ID number in order to obtain accurate fee information. The system requires that we choose a predominant breed or breed blend for our dogs. Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed blend. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.

To foster or adopt this dog please call Providence Animal Center at 610-566-1370 during adoption hours. You may also email Can't foster or adopt? Donate to help our homeless pets,

Our adoption requirements and a printable application form may be found on our website. With your adoption fee you get a lot for FREE! All the pets adopted from Providence Animal Center are given wellness exams, are spayed/neutered, fully vaccinated, dewormed and microchipped. Additionally, dogs over 7 months old are heartworm tested and all felines are tested for FELV/FIV. Adopters may receive discounted wellness care from our adoptions health department, and also get a complimentary wellness visit at a participating private veterinary practice up to 30 days post-adoption and the pets are given personality evaluations. It doesn't stop there- a gift of one month of pet health insurance is included along with unlimited phone consultations and e-mail exchanges with our trained feline and canine behavior experts.

Our Adoption Process...

The adoption screening will take approximately 20 minutes and requires the following information:
A driver’s license or some form of state-issued photo identification with your current address
Residency: We always need to check with the owners of the property to be sure that the animal will be welcome. If you live in an apartment, we need to see a copy of your lease stating that you are allowed to have pets. If you own your home, please bring a copy of your deed, mortgage payment book or tax bill.
All family members living in the home are required to meet the animal prior to adoption approval.
If you are planning to adopt a dog and presently have a dog, both dogs must meet.
