Rescue a Pet: Old Man River

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — On Wednesday, the Providence Animal Rescue League brought us Old Man River.

Old Man River is 10 years old, very sweet and mellow, but he has a tumor on his spleen. That makes him a hospice adoption, meaning his adoption fees will be waived.

The shelter wants to see him live out his final months happy and comfortable in a home.

This Sunday from 10 a.m. until noon, PARL will be hosting their final vaccination event of the year, offering rabies and distemper shots for dogs and cats at $20 apiece.

If you or someone you know wants to adopt Old Man River or any of the other animals at the shelter, visit or give them a call at (401) 421-1399.
