Help us welcome our new Communications and Development intern, Sam Sanchez! We are thrilled to have such a talented animal lover join the team.

“Hi there! My name is Samantha and I’m an intern here at ACCT Philly. I’m currently helping to promote different events and get the word out about the animals here and how you can get involved!

I have always been an animal lover which is why my goal is to inspire others to love and care about animals. It’s also why I sought out an organization like ACCT to fulfill my need to spread love for animals and to work with others towards creating a safer and better place for them in to live in.

For as long as I can remember there has always been an animal (often more than one) in my house and I always saw myself working with and for animals throughout my life. My desire to fulfill this dream was made even stronger when my family and I lost our first family pet, a little Jack Russell, only a year ago. He gave us 10 hilarious and energetic years of love we will never forget.

My hope is that as I graduate and enter “the real world” I can continue to aid others in finding forever homes for animals…which is why I’m so happy to be involved with ACCT Philly!”
