How to adopt:
Potential adopters will need to schedule an appointment to adopt. Appointments for the following week (Thursday through Friday) are released each Monday morning at 10am. Appointments generally fill up with two hours so mark your calendars! Interested adopters may schedule an appointment here after which they will be taken to the adoption questionnaire to fill out and indicate which pets are of interest.
Once an appointment is made and the questionnaire is filled out, a staff member will review the application prior to the appointment. The counseling appointment will happen remotely or onsite, to meet the needs of each adopter, and meet and greets will resume onsite as well, ensuring adopters and animals have the opportunity to interact and find the right fit. Questions? E-mail us at email@example.com
We are now open to the public 10am-6pm daily for surrender and adoption appointments, as well as lost and found services. Based on the Safer at Home guidelines issued by the city, we will limit the number of clients in the building at one time and are only able to accommodate walk-ins as we have availability. If you show up without an appointment for an adoption, we will try to accommodate you, however it’s likely that there will be a wait time, or a possibility that we are not able to accommodate your request.
Our Animal Care and Medical as well as Dispatch staff will maintain traditional hours to continue caring for animals and providing access to services as needed outside of public hours.
What to bring with you on adoption day
- An up to date photo ID.
- It is strongly recommended that all residents in the household are present to meet the cat
- Cardboard Carrier
All cats must leave in a suitable carrier. One is included in your adoption fee but if you bring one from home, we will take $5.00 off of your adoption fee. If you receive a free pet, the $5.00 charge will apply in order to safely get your new cat home.
What are the benefits of your adoption?
Your adopted cat will be microchipped, provided flea preventative and dewormed, given age appropriate vaccines, and spayed or neutered – normally these services would cost a pet owner in Philadelphia more than $400! Additionally, ACCT Philly will always take a pet back into our care if you are no longer able to keep them.
What does it cost?
- Kittens (6 months and under): $100
- Adult Cats (more than 6 months and less
than 7 years): $30
- Senior Cats (7 years or older): “Pick
Your Price” Donation
