On behalf of the Board of Directors of ACCT Philly, it is our pleasure to announce that Vincent Medley will be joining the Animal Care and Control Team as our next Executive Director. Vincent’s appointment will begin on November 2, 2015.

“I am honored and excited to be joining the hardworking staff and volunteers of ACCT Philly. I have no doubt that together we can build upon ACCT Philly’s strong foundation and bring the shelter to an even higher level of professionalism and lifesaving,” said Medley.

Vincent is a tenured animal control professional who has been with the City of San Antonio as Assistant Director of Animal Care Services for seven years. He brings with him over twelve years of animal welfare experience in urban, high-volume shelters. During his tenure in San Antonio, Vincent played a substantial role in increasing the live release rate from 31% in 2008 to the current rate of 81%.

We are confident that Vincent’s background in shelter operations, live release programming and animal law enforcement will provide the requisite skills and leadership that, when coupled with our quality team of employees, will make ACCT Philly a best in class shelter operation.

Please join us in welcoming Vincent Medley to the ACCT Philly team!
