Most of our cats are located at our Main Shelter. However, we also have cats at our Everyday Adoption Center, several Offsite Locations and in foster care that are also available for adoption.

Adopting 101

Thinking about adding a furry member of the family?  Here at ACCT Philly, we are committed to making pet adoption a simple, enjoyable experience.

When you come to ACCT, our adoption counselors will show you which cats we currently have available at the shelter. Once you have found a few cats you would like to meet, our counselors will help you fill out an adoption application and answer any questions you may have – they are trained to help you find the purr-fect match.

Once your adoption application is approved, you will have the chance to meet with and get to know the cats you are interested in.  If you find “The One,” your application will be processed and by paying your adoption fee and signing the adoption contract, CONGRATS! You are the proud new parent of a wiggly, furry bundle of love.

What to Bring With You on Adoption Day

  1. VERY IMPORTANT: You MUST bring an up-to-date photo ID, and additional proof of address (such as a lease or water bill) if the address listed on your ID is outdated.
  2. If you own your home, please bring in a copy of your mortgage statement. If you rent, we may need to contact your landlord for their pet policy.
  3. It is strongly recommended that all residents in the household are present to meet the cat.
