On October 18th, the JFK park fountain in iconic “Love Park” will be invaded by ducks … RUBBER DUCKS! Each duck taking a dip and dashing through the fountain will be individually numbered. At the end of their swim, winning ducks will be drawn from the flock!
At least 5,000 ducks are taking a dip. Adopt one (or more!) today for a chance to win prizes like $1,000 cash and an iPad! (read more)

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 – and save a life!
