Hi! I'm Skittles (A26975377)! I was named Skittles because I'm sweet like the candy! I'm a female pit bull mix who's about 3 years old and medium sized at 44 lbs. I was found as a stray and brought to the shelter. I currently have a doggy cold and I'm a little itchy with some hair loss. I try to keep on a happy face, but I much rather be on the couch snuggling next to you! A little TLC from a nice family would help me get over my cold, itchiness and hair loss! The volunteers here have said I'm very smiley and affectionate. I already know 'sit' and 'stay'. I'm VERY house-trained and I'm already spayed, so I'm ready to move in with you! Please come to the shelter and meet me in person!

About Animal Care & Control Team of Philadephia

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!
