Meet Dahlia! This little lady is a two year-young sweetheart who joined us from an overcrowded shelter and is now looking for a family that she can venture through life with. She is a total goofball at heart who loves to fill her days rolling around with her toys, and meowing for pets from her caregivers. Dahlia is cat friendly and is spayed, microchipped and up-to-date on vaccinations. Stop by our Adoption Center today to welcome this little lady into your life!
Missy is showing everyone that incredible things come in tiny packages!
Senior girl Missy joined our Adoption Center from an overcrowded shelter down south, and is now living the life of luxery in a home of her very own!
Her family says:
“She is doing so well, love her!”
Thank you for showing Missy the love that she deserves! Happy Forever, Missy!
Just think of Cleopatra and Mark Antony, Bonnie and Clyde, Donnie and Marie, Beyoncé and Jay Z, Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, Marlin and Dory, Peanut Butter and Jelly, Salt and Pepper… that’s these two – together forever. Meet Boots and Rusty. They had been with the same owner since they were puppies, but unfortunately when their owner needed to move to an assisted living facility, they couldn’t go with her. Now they are in search of that home where they can settle in for a true forever! Rusty is about 6 years old and Boots is about 11, they love to take walks and enjoy being around people. Boots and Rusty are both spayed/neutered, have age appropriate vaccines, and are fully vaccinated. Come by our lifesaving Center today to fall in love with this dynamic duo!
Max, formerly known as Kobe, is making the most out of his forever!
His family said: “Hi, Kobe has a new name— Max, and he’s doing great. He loves taking walks in the neighborhood and he loves to run! He’s my new running partner. He has a lot of new pup friends in the neighborhood, and really seems to be getting comfortable in the house and with the kids. He’s so well behaved ! We love Max!”
We love to hear how our furry friends become involved with their family members’ favorite activities – have a happy forever Max!
It was together and with a still breath that we entered into what will be looked back on as the Polar Vortex of 2019, and it is together that we will make it through to warmer days.
Over the past week, we have seen temperatures that at their lowest, reached six degrees – so it may come as no surprise that a Code Blue has been put in effect for the city of Philadelphia. What this means is that the National Weather Bureau predicted “a wind chill temperature of 20 degrees Fahrenheit or below or precipitation with temperatures below 32 degrees Fahrenheit” (phila.gov/codeBlue).
What this also means is that the number of pets needing to be rescued from frigid temperatures has increased exponentially, as has the number of pets being brought to Animal Control facilities – causing essential resources to stretch thin, the most crucial being space.
We knew that despite the Center’s own limitations with space due to our Kennel Renovation project, we needed to find a way to help our friends at ACCT Philly.
Thanks to our dedicated team of lifesavers and support from the community, we offered to alleviate some of the stresses brought on by the sudden influx of homeless pets by accepting some of those furry faces, like Sheeba (pictured above), into our care.
We are proud to be a lifeline to a community in need, and it is together that our lifesaving efforts were made possible.
