Meet Amber! Amber is an adorable 2-3 year old tan and white pit bull mix who is about medium sized weighing around 40 pounds. Amber came in as a stray when a kind police officer brought her in. She has a really sweet personality and loves people. She loves getting attention and has a lot of love.... and kisses to offer! Amber is definitely a snuggle bug and is very social! She is about medium energy as she enjoys going for walks and runs but also enjoys just hanging out next to you. If you are looking for a running buddy or a buddy to do fun activities with you then Amber could be your gal! She is happy to do whatever you are doing. She also enjoys playing and plays gently. And she really enjoys frozen kongs the volunteers give her. Amber doesn't have any problems with handling so feel free to hug and pet her all the time! She met some dogs here at the shelter and did really well with them

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.

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!
