Meet Cassandra, the reigning queen of ACCT. Cassandra is a stunning panther-kitty with a jet-black coat and bright golden eyes. This pretty girl arrived at the shelter as a stray, and is hoping to leave soon as a member of your forever family! Cassandra is a friendly, calm girl who is currently residing in the shelter's cage-free room with several other cats. She gets along with other cats as long as they give her some space, and also loves the attention of humans, especially when it involves head rubs! She isn't looking for an attached at the hip type of relationship, but certainly is happy for attention and to be near her people. Cassandra is already spayed, microchipped, and tested negative for FIV/Felv. She is ready to go home today, so be sure to ask to see her!

Act quickly to adopt Cassandra. Pets at this Shelter may be held for only a short time.

About Our Shelter...

The Animal Care & Control Team of Philadelphia (ACCT Philly) is the region’s largest animal care and control service provider. ACCT Philly is an independent, 501c3 nonprofit organization, contracted by the City of Philadelphia to provide animal control services. Our animal control officers provide service over 142.6 square miles to the city’s more than 1.5 million residents and ACCT Philly’s facility in North Philadelphia handles more than 32,000 of the city’s animals, from dogs and cats, to small animals, reptiles, birds and wildlife, annually.

In addition to animal control and sheltering, ACCT Philly is open 365 days a year for pet adoptions. ACCT Philly also supports a foster care program where community members provide temporary homes for sheltered animals and one of the (if not THE) most extensive rescue partnership program in the country where approved rescue partners accept ACCT Philly animals into their adoption programs. Under contract ACCT Philly’s Animal Control Officers provide animal control services and code enforcement. Other exciting ACCT Philly programs include a food pantry for low-income pet owners, a vibrant volunteer program, trap-neuter-return for community cats, a unique Pen Pal program to assist dogs at risk … and so much more!
