The story of Dahlia – Help us find her a loving home!


Dahlia (and her smile) at the shelter

In the summer of 2014 this sweet girl was found tied to a pole in the city and was brought in to the shelter, ACCT Philly.

She became a Pen Pal at the shelter (meaning she had one-on-one interaction with a volunteer daily) and shorty after she was adopted.  Fast forward to March 2nd 2015.  A volunteer’s friend saw a photo of a dog on a Facebook group called “For sale or trade in North Philly”, on ‘sale’ for $45 or to the highest bidder.  Her ‘family’ stated they moved and their new place didn’t allow pets.


At the shelter, she loved chewing toys on the grass

We couldn’t allow Dahlia to be basically thrown away to anyone & end up in the wrong hands, so a volunteer stepped up to ‘buy’ her and take her to safety.  Being so spur of the moment, we had no place for her to actually go, but we had to get her before someone else did.


Dahlia and her favorite toys when she was at the shelter

Dahlia was given a bath and some much needed food, since she came to us thinner then she was when she was at the shelter, and taken to a local boarding facility until a temporary foster could take her in a few days.  This is only temporary and she needs a longer-term foster or even better, a real forever family.  Dahlia lived with young kids in her home and according to her adopter is good with other dogs – We haven’t been able to dog-test her yet so we can’t confirm if this is correct info.  She LOVES toys and any kind of balls to run around with, she’s 2 years old, spayed and up to date on shots.
