Available Dogs

Most dogs are located at our shelter, at 111 W Hunting Park Ave, Philadelphia, PA.However we also have dogs in foster care who are also available for adoption and are listed below the dogs at our shelter.  

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. Please note these slots fill up very quickly (within hours). 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 adopt@acctphilly.org

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. Appointments are released every Monday at 10am for the following week. Appointments generally fill up with two hours so mark your calendars! 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.


What to bring with you on adoption day:

  • An up to date photo ID.
  • We strongly recommend bringing any resident dogs and children to meet any potential new dog family members.
  • A leash and collar. A set is included in your adoption fee but if you bring them from home, we will take $15.00 off of your adoption fee.

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)

What are the benefits of your adoption?
Your adopted dog will be microchipped, provided flea preventative and dewormed, given age appropriate vaccines, and spayed or neutered – normally these services would cost a dog owner in Philadelphia more than $500! Additionally, ACCT Philly will always take a pet back into our care if you are no longer able to keep them.
