Yorkie mix missing from 48th and Hazel (UPDATE: Found!)

June 20, 2016


UPDATE: The dog has been found.

A yorkie mix (under 10 pounds, smaller than a cat) escaped from a backyard on 48th Street between Hazel and Larchwood on Monday at around 5:10 p.m. It’s possible that someone picked him up as he is not wearing a tag. His name is Truman.

“We are dog sitting for the family while they are out of town and he does not know the area. Please let us know if you hear anything,” writes our reader Joanna.

Please call 434-409-7675 or 703-869-4589 with any information. A reward is being offered for finding the dog.

pawsPhilly PAWS, a local pet rescue organization, is raising money for its Grays Ferry location. The Grays Ferry shelter is undergoing a major overhaul that “includes creating a new dog adoption and foster care office, replacing a broken washer with a commercial-grade machine, and replacing old computers and furniture,” according to the PAWS website.

Their goal is to raise $7,500 and they have already raised $5,100 as of 3:45 p.m. on Thursday. Every contribution to this project will be matched thanks to the generosity of two anonymous PAWS donors.

March 30, 2016


This female pitbull terrier mix was found on Monday night near S. Saint Bernard and Florence. Here’s more information from the person who found her:

We found this nervous little black/dark brown & white pit terrier/hound mix with a pink collar, wandering on the 800 block of [South] Saint Bernard Street (between 49th & 50th just south of Baltimore) on Monday night. We fed her and our neighbors tried to take her in for the night, but she got sick and tried to escape. ACCT picked her up around 11 p.m., and she is still there. She is a young adult, about 30 pounds, is underweight, and she may have had puppies in the past year. If this is your sweet dog, please claim her at ACCT Philly as soon as possible.
