If there’s anything this community knows it’s lost cats. A lost or abandoned cat’s best friend, the West Philly-based feline rescue organization Project MEOW, had a busy year helping stray cats and kittens find homes. They also help keep feral cat population under control through their TNR (Trap-Neuter-Release) program. Here are a few numbers from 2015 in Project MEOW’s holiday card to the community, and an important note that none of this work would have been possible without volunteers. To learn more about Project MEOW, visit their website or Facebook page.

A couple of stray dogs need some help

December 18, 2015

Two stray dogs have been reported in the area and need some help.

The first report is of a stray dog that was hit by a car on Thursday at 54th and Chestnut:

Around 11:40 a.m. on December 17th a stray female white pitbull was hit by a grey Toyota sedan at the intersection of 54th and Chestnut. After being hit, the dog rolled and took off running south down 54th St. She didn’t look injured as I didn’t see her limp while running but I don’t know if there was any internal damage. She also looked to be pregnant or having recently given birth.

I stopped my car and tried to locate the dog but was unsuccessful. I immediately called Philadelphia Animal Care and Rescue but they were also unable to locate her.

Could you please put a message out to the neighborhood to be on the lookout for the dog? I feel horrible after seeing that happen and I wasn’t able to help. If someone locates her please call the ASPCA or Animal Care (to make sure she gets the help she needs.

Two reports of a golden retriever wandering the neighborhood came in this morning. The dog was first seen near 50th and Spruce at around 12:30 a.m. on Friday. Another person spotted the dog at 43rd and Locust at about 1 a.m. The sighting was reported to Philadelphia Animal Care & Control Team (ACCT). The person followed the dog but lost its sight at 45th and Spruce.

To report a dog on the loose to ACCT, call (267) 385-3800. Also, check out this page.

Adopt a Cat: Sundae

December 3, 2015


This week’s featured adoptable cat is Sundae, a young female domestic medium-hair.

Personality Types: 1. Private Investigator: Sundae’s curiosity knows no bounds. She is always finding the hidden nooks and corners of your home. 2. Professional Cuddler: she can be found on or near you at all times.

Sundae is a very curious cat. When you open your closet or the door to another room, you can rest assured she will be at your heels ready to explore this interesting new space. If you open your window, make sure it has a screen because she’ll jump right up to the windowsill to stare out at the streets and listen to the cars and people outside.

She’ll start off kind of shy but will quickly warm up to you. Sundae loves being pet and will jump on the table next to you if you’re concentrating on your coffee or computer and demand attention! She also enjoys climbing onto the back of the chair you’re sitting on and nuzzling you from behind.

Occasionally, she’ll go on to your lap. Of course, she’ll let you know when she’s had enough with petting or playing with a little swipe or nip.  Continue Reading
