BFASACCT Philly is partnering with Best Friends Animal Society’s Community Cats Program that will bring nearly $1 million dollars in funding and in-kind support to sterilize 4,000 free roaming cats annually for three years. Learn more about how the program works and how you can help in the coming weeks!

major2Dog licenses are the law in Philadelphia and Pennsylvania but did you know a dog license is also your dog’s ticket home? Dogs wearing their license tags who arrive at Philadelphia’s animal control shelter get a free stay at the shelter while you are being located and they even are eligible for a FREE RIDE HOME! Best of all even if your dog never gets lost, license revenue supports ACCT Philly’s many programs that benefit shelter animals. License your dog now – and save a life!

kitten project post_72The Animal Care & Control Team of Philadelphia (ACCT Philly) is recruiting volunteers who love kittens to help save orphaned babies and Best Friends Animal Society, which runs the nation’s largest no-kill sanctuary for companion animals, as well as lifesaving programs in partnership with rescue groups and shelters across the country, has awarded ACCT Philly a grant of $50,000 in support of the project.

Summer months are the busiest time of year for ACCT Philly, with more than 100 pets coming through the doors on any given day – many of them neonatal kittens requiring special care in foster homes. These kittens are at the greatest risk of death in animal shelters due to their fragile immune system and overwhelming numbers. This year ACCT Philly aims to save them all.
