1st Annual Gala For Second Chances




ACCT Philly’s Gala for Second Chances – Friday, May 3, 2019!

ACCT Philly will be hosting its first annual Gala for Second Chances on May 3, 2019 at Concilio from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. emceed by Fox 29’s Lucy Noland!

Proceeds from the Gala will benefit ACCT Philly’s life-saving programs – as our open-admission shelter is truly the first stop on the road to second chances for thousands of animals every year!

As part of Philadelphia’s No Kill Coalition, ACCT Philly is committed to saving healthy and treatable animals as far as our resources and capacity for care will permit.

In 2018, ACCT’s live release rate was roughly 85 percent thanks to our amazing staff, volunteers, fosters, rescues and other partners! In January 2019, ACCT’s live release for dogs and cats was 90 percent. So please join us and help keep the good stuff going!

Tickets are $175

Tickets for active volunteers and current Love Local Partners are $100

Acct Philly is a non profit 501c3 organization and thus any donation to us is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. That includes the price of this Gala ticket less the dollar value assigned to the event by Acct ($40).
