EPACC Pet of the Week: Sophie


EAST PROVIDENCE — Sophie is a white and grey female Shih-Tzu available for adoption at East Providence Animal Control Center. Sophie was found abandoned in a carrier in East Providence. Since coming to animal control, Sophie has been spayed and vaccinated. She had severely matted fur, which the veterinarian has shaved off, and she is now being medicated for a skin condition because of the neglect Sophie has been through.

She is approximately 1-2 years old. Sophie is the sweetest little thing although she may be a little nervous and shy at first. With all of the TLC she's received, Sophie is now showing the EP staff her appreciation & her loving side, and always greets us with kisses and love. This poor little pup has been through quite a lot, but despite it all she is still an amazing companion.

If you are interested in Sophie, please feel free to stop by the facility any day of the week, including weekends, between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. We are located at 62 Commercial Way, East Providence, RI. We also have plenty of other animals in need of good homes as well.

You may see the pets we have available for adoption listed on Facebook or Petfinder.com. If you have any questions about adoption or need to speak with an Animal Control Officer regarding other issues, you may contact the staff at (401) 435-7675.
