Now’s the perfect time to adopt, and we’re so grateful to the Cathy Kangas Foundation for Animals and PRAI for Paws program for making this possible! Thanks to them, all fees for pets adopted from ACCT Philly now through April 26 will be waived. If you live in the city of Philadelphia, you’ll need to pay a $16 licensing fee, but that’s it!
Please note that due to the COVID 19 pandemic, our adoption procedures have changed and are all online. Please do not come to the shelter in person as we are closed to the public.
Once you’re ready to adopt, fill out the application and make an appointment here and indicate what animal you are interested in adopting when filling out the application online.
The appointment will be done over the phone. If it’s determined the pet you’re interested in is a good fit (or together, you and the counselor decide a different pet is a better match) you will receive the paperwork via e-mail, and have that reviewed over the call. Once approved, we will schedule for one of our animal protection officers to bring the pet to you! Please know that the drop offs are being piloted, so we may change this process if issues arise with it.
