ACCT Philly welcomes adopters 7 days a week, 365 days a year!

Adopting a new pet is easy. Our main shelter facility is open weekdays, 1pm – 8pm, and weekends, 10am – 5pm and we have numerous other adoption locations where pets are housed or visit weekly and monthly. Please bring photo ID with your current name and address.

Adoption fees vary from as low as zero dollars – that’s right, no fee – to $300 depending on the age, species and type of animal. We frequently offer special adoption discounts and promotions; check out the News page for details!

Available Adoptables

The adoption fee for dogs and cats includes your new pet’s spay or neuter surgery, microchip (for dogs only), age appropriate vaccinations, deworming, and an offer for 30 days of free pet health insurance from ShelterCare. Cats and kittens can be adopted two for the price of one through our Adopt-A-Buddy program.
