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. In an effort to reduce cancellations and no shows, we are now only offering same day appointments. To make an appointment, you may come to the shelter as early as 10am when we open. A staff member will help you make an appointment for that day. The time you will be given for your same day appointment might involve a wait, or could be in the moment. It depends on the number of people ahead of you. Once your appointment is booked, depending on the wait you may either wait in your car, or come back at the time of your appointment. We will have 20 appointments available daily, which we hope will help accommodate potential adopters and help our pets find homes. Read more about our adoption process here

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 so are offering same day appointments that need to be made onsite.

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.
- Adopters must bring a leash and collar or purchase a temporary leash for $3, or a leash and collar for $15.
Adoption fees (not including tax):
- Puppy (Under 6 Months): $250
- Adult dog (6mos – 2 years): $75
- Adult dog (2 years – 7 years) $65
- Senior Dog (7 years or older): $25
Please note a $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.
