I'm looking to be the king of someone’s castle! I’m a 1-2 year old beautiful auburn colored Terrier/Pit Mix that was surrendered to the shelter by my previous family. I’m not letting it get me down though. I’m looking for a new family who has the time to train me and teach me how to the be the best dog I can be! I’m a fairly active boy and I LOVE to play fetch! I’m learning how to share my favorite toys with my human friends.
Luckily I’ve got my very own volunteer at the shelter. She is making sure that I practice sitting and waiting for my human friends before going through doors, learning to drop a tennis ball when I want to play fetch, and learning to leave high value treats when its not time to play.
I met a few doggie friends here at the shelter but I’m kind of shy. Please bring your doggie friends to meet me if you already have a dog at home and are interested in adopting me. I met a few cats here and was interested to meet them but didn’t fixate or bark at them so I could probably live with cats! Also, families with small children should bring them along to meet me to make sure I’m a good match for your family. Please head down to the shelter to meet me today!
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!
