ACCT Philly (Animal Care & Control Team of Philadelphia) is full to the brim and all dogs in the shelter are at risk, so adopting or fostering a dog helps save its life. This week’s featured dog is Leona. She is calm, sweet and great on the leash! She is about 2-3 years old, and on the smaller side of medium at 41 lbs. She has a stunning grey coat and huge bat ears that are just waiting for someone to say: “Your new forever home is with me!” In the meantime, this girl is biding her time at the shelter, where she enjoys romping in the play yard and cuddling with her volunteer friends.
She has wonderful manners and is house trained, knows a few commands and is so gentle on the leash – very easy to walk. She would love to be adopted to a home that would take her for walks and let her cuddle on the couch. She’s also great with kids. Poor Leona is on treatment for kennel cough and needs a loving home ASAP to recover. If Leona sounds like a good fit for you, stop into ACCT Philly today and adopt her! She is urgent!
If you rather not commit to adopting her, fostering is a great way to save her life to help her find her forever family.
Leona is up to date on his shots, microchipped and will be spayed. So she already comes with “the works”.
Ask for her either in the Life Saving Office (fostering) or in Adoptions. ACCT is located at 111 W. Hunting Park Avenue in Philadelphia. Please check www.acctphilly.org for hours. To check the status of an animal, call 267-385-3800 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sosa is here and is waiting for you! This pretty girl is only around 6 months old, just a young pup looking for her forever home. She is a sweet and playful girl and loves to make friends with the staff and volunteers at Philadelphia’s animal control shelter, ACCT, where she is currently residing. Sosa is very playful and full of puppy energy and would love a home that would teach her basic obedience and take her for nice long walks. This puppy is struggling in her kennel at ACCT. All she wants is to learn, love, and live.
This is just one of the many wonderful dogs in urgent need of adoption, foster care, or rescue at ACCT Philly. You can stop down and meet them, and after filling out an application with shelter staff, interact with them 365 days a year at the shelter located at 111 W. Hunting Park Avenue in Philadelphia. Please check www.acctphilly.org for hours.

Solo is a 1-2 year-old male pit bull terrier mix, weighing about 36 lbs. He has had a rough start, being underweight and found tied to a tree. But his tagline should be “The past belongs in the past, and the present is a present.”
This gentle boy not only loves to cuddle, he walks like a gentleman on the leash and has no issues with other dogs. He can be a bit nervous in overwhelming environments, but in a quiet and gentle home, he will quickly open up and could potentially live with other dogs.
Due to his young age and former “life,” Solo’s coat looks crazy with a mix of browns. Once he is on a steady diet and less stressed, his coat should become a deep chocolate brown (a lovely contrast with those golden eyes!). Once comfortable, Solo enjoys curling up for a nap or giving sweet kisses to anyone willing to offer a belly rub. This boy has quickly won the hearts of many volunteers and shouldn’t have to spend another day in the shelter.
If you’re looking for an easy companion animal, Solo is your dog. Please come to ACCT and meet Solo. If you are not ready to commit to adopting Solo but would like to help, fostering him and helping him find his forever family is a wonderful way to save not only Solo’s life but also the life of the dog who gets to move into Solo’s kennel at the shelter.

Jayla (ACCT name) is a beautiful 1-2 year-old female pitbull mix that was found earlier this month in Clark Park (it’s possible that she had been abandoned.) She was taken to ACCT Philly and is now officially up for adoption (or foster) at ACCT shelter.
Jayla is already spayed, so she is one-paw-out the door, ready to go home with you. Jayla is a gorgeous dog and you will be the envy of your friends, walking this cutie pie down the street! She is very playful and full of spunk and would love to go for long walks or maybe a jog! Jayla also seems to be interested in meeting other dogs. A doggy friend for Jayla would be great! She is a sweet young girl who would love for you to show her the good life! So come into ACCT and meet her today!
If you or someone you know would be interested in adopting or fostering her please contact ACCT shelter (267-385-3800 or email@example.com). Jayla’s ID is 19795850.
Meet Buddy! This handsome fella is looking for a family of his own, and boy would he be a great addition! He’s about 5 years old, but he still has plenty of love and energy to share. He loves to run and play, and loves fetching sticks.
Buddy is very affectionate and absolutely loves being around people as well as other dogs. He has played with some new doggie friends at the shelter and did great. He is also terrific with people. He loves to goof around and show lots of affection. If you have any children under 10, please bring them along to meet him. If you have any resident dogs, please bring them along as well to make sure they’re a good match. Come meet Buddy today, you’ll be glad you did!
Here’s a video of Buddy learning the hoop trick.

These middle-aged sweethearts have a lot to offer their prospective new families, including: the promise to catch on to housebreaking quickly, the ability to recognize the difference between their toys and your shoes with just a little guidance and most importantly, unconditional love and gratitude for saving them!
Pete is a 5-10 year old American Bulldog mix who was surrendered to the shelter because his owner fell ill and could no longer care for a pet. Pete isn’t letting his new life in the shelter phase him too much, mainly because he’s getting lots of attention from his new staff and volunteer friends. Pete is a big, tall guy, weighing around 80 pounds, but it appears as though his big, kissable head accounts for a fair amount of that weight.
Pete has quickly become a favorite at the shelter because of his low-key, easy-peasy demeanor. Despite his size, he’s pretty easy on the leash. While he loves to spend time with his human friends, Pete also did well when meeting other dogs at the shelter. He was tolerant of pushy, goofy play styles and was comfortable spending time with other low-key dogs as well. Pete has reportedly lived with other dogs AND cats in his past home. He’d be a great addition to any family looking for a big, easy-going companion. Interested in meeting him? Grab your resident dogs and stop by!
If you you searching for a sweet easygoing dog who is past all that “puppy” nonsense then Nikol is your girl. She is a full-figured, middle-aged girl who is looking for love and a forever family. She’s a low-key sweetheart who would enjoy curling up with you on the sofa on a cold day, or hanging outside with you enjoying the sunshine.
Nikol very much enjoys going for long walks to explore the great outdoors! She loves attention and will let you pet her for as long as you are willing. She is also very tolerant of her penpals putting her in costumes. Come meet her and maybe you will fall in love with her just like her volunteer friends. Bring the whole family, including any children and resident dog(s), if you have them at home already, so everyone can meet her at the same time to see if she is the right match to be a part of your family.
