Corporate Volunteering at ACCT Philly

An Opportunity to Help Philly’s Most Vulnerable Animals

When your corporate team makes ACCT Philly their volunteer-day destination of choice, your company will be making a huge impact on and difference to Philly’s homeless animals. ACCT Philly is the City’s only open-admission animal shelter and control facility, and the largest animal welfare facility in the region. More than 18,000 animals – dogs, cats, birds, reptiles, pigs, wildlife – came through our doors in 2018. They entered in all states of health and behavior; sizes large and small; from newborns to seniors. Thanks to staff, rescue partners, adopters, fosters, and volunteers, including those from companies like yours, our shelter had a live release rate of roughly 85 percent last year.

Whether your team would like to engage in a specific project or participate in a structured experience that can include laundry, helping with food pantry, washing dishes and providing animals with enrichment and care, ACCT Philly provides an experience your organization will not soon forget. It’s always our hope some of your employees will get hooked by the beautiful 100 percent purebred Philly dogs and cats we shelter here, and come back as regular volunteers!

We can accommodate groups of as few as five volunteers and as many as 20. We’ll provide a tour of the shelter, and an informative short presentation on the history and progress of animal welfare in Philadelphia and at the shelter. Usually, our corporate volunteer opportunities run between 2 and 4 hours.

Due to construction we are not currently accepting corporate volunteering applications at this time. Thank you for your understanding and we apologize for any inconvenience.

(All volunteers must sign a waiver of liability. All volunteers must be 18 years of age or older.)
