A couple of stray dogs need some help

Posted on 18 December 2015 by

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: Backpack

Posted on 21 October 2015 by


“Backpack” is available for adoption.

This week’s featured adoptable cat is Backpack, a domestic short-haired adult female cat.

Backpack is an enigma wrapped in a riddle enveloped in a mystery. She is the manic pixie dream girl of cats, who doesn’t feel compelled to explain the quirky things she does. For instance, she’s very diligent about keeping her talons diamond-sharp despite the fact that her front paws are declawed. She likes to play chase but only at a medium rate of speed. She also likes to lie on her back and knead the air…

If you’re looking for a sweet but eccentric cat who likes lots of attention (and wants to be the only cat in the house) and will leave you scratching your head, Backpack is the girl for you.

Backpack is spayed, FeLV and FIV negative, current with shots, treated for fleas and worms, and is litter box trained.

To adopt this cat please complete and return a PAWS adoption application. It is available at the Baltimore Pet Shoppe (4532 Baltimore Ave.), or online. Application and adoption fee ($50.00) applies. Please use number A29675756 when applying to adopt this cat.

For additional information, contact Project MEOW at

This cat is being fostered through the partnership of Project MEOW and PAWS.
