As of March 23rd we have changed to doing adoptions by appointment only. Please read more about this and other changes in light of COVID 19 here.
The EAC is currently closed.

Most of our dogs are located at our Main Shelter. However, we also have dogs at our Everyday Adoption Center and in foster care that are also available for adoption. Contact us at adopt@acctphilly.org for more info!

What to Bring With You on Adoption Day

  • We strongly recommend bringing any resident dogs and children to meet any potential new dog family members.

Adoption Fees:

  • Adult Large Dog: $65
  • Adult Small Dog: $100
  • Puppy (Under 6 Months): $250
  • Senior Dog (7 years or older): “Pick Your Price” Donation ($16 license fee applies if living in Philadelphia)

  • Spay or neuter surgery
  • Microchip
  • Deworming
