Sylvester would like a chin-scratcher for life!

This handsome gentleman is Sly (the name his owner’s called him was Sylvester, but we call him Sly). He is a 12 year old man that was surrendered to us after having an allergic reaction to fleas. Luckily for him, once he got here he was treated and is feeling much better now that they are gone!


Sly is a laid back guy that just wants to be loved. Once you start petting him, he purrs so loud that you can practically hear it across the room! Sly’s eyes are the kind that just draw you in and you can’t stop staring (he doesn’t mind because he likes attention).


He would love nothing more than to be to be curled up on his favorite person’s lap getting chin scratches (they are his favorite!). He is just looking to get back into a home and have a family to love, and believe us, he’s VERY lovable! Sly is already neutered so he can go home with you today — which is perfect because his bags are packed & ready to go!!
Come to meet him ASAP at Acct Philly, 111 W. Hunting Park Ave, Phila., PA 19140
1pm-8pm Monday-Friday and 10:00am-5:00pm Saturday & Sunday


Free Hugs From Chug!

Do you like dogs? Do you like hugs? Do you like dog’s hugs? If you answered yes, then Chug is your girl!
This stunning tan and white pit/shar pei-mix loves to hug and cuddle her human friends – it’s her all time favorite thing to do! Chug is around 3 years old and is currently at the shelter waiting for a real family to come and love her forever. She has a two-toned eye: half blue/half brown!

She is dog social but prefers to be around dogs that are calm and gentle (like she is). She doesn’t want to play with them but she can be around them going out on walks, hikes etc. (She recently went on a hike with a male dog and they were great together). It is currently unknown how she is with cats.
She is gentle and is good with kids (she previously lived with them). Chug just has so much love to give out, let’s help get her the home she’s looking for!
Come meet her Monday-Friday 1pm-8pm or Saturday-Sunday 10am-5pm at Acct Philly, 111 West Hunting Park Avenue, Phila., PA 19140

Adopt Allie – An Itty Bitty Pocket Pittie!

Meet Allie!


If you are a lover of gray pit-mixes but want a smaller dog, then Allie is your girl!


Allie (A29634795) comes to us as a stray and she could surely use some extra food to fatten her up! She is a tiny 26lb adult former Mama that is just looking for love! While she is thinner than we like, even when she puts some weight on she will still be a tiny little lover.
Allie loves to go outside so she can cuddle up to her favorite people. She seems to be house trained and would love to be able to snuggle up on a couch with some blankets and a loving massage (and a pedicure!) to help her forget about her past and look to her future!
Come meet her ASAP at Acct Philly, 111 W. Hunting Park Avenue, Phila., PA 19140
1pm-8pm Monday-Friday, 10am-5pm Saturday/Sunday


Princess – Looking For A Home For Over 1 Year!

From her rescue, Diamonds In The Ruff Rescue:

This is Princess!


Hi, I’m Princess!

She is STILL looking for a home! We rescued her from a high kill shelter in Philadelphia over a year ago after she was found roaming the streets of Philadelphia.

She’s absolutely gorgeous! She’s a 1-2 year old spayed Lab mix with butterscotch coloring. She’s a fun girl that loves to run around the back yard and play with a ball.  She absolutely loves her ball, she could spend all day in the yard playing.

"I love my ball!"

“I love my ball!”

She is also extremely good in a crate & She also loves being pet and snuggled, the whole time she gently gives her paw and kisses, as if saying thank you for the love and attention.   She loves hiking and hanging out with her temporary foster family!



She would love a forever home without cats and would love to be the only spoiled dog! Please email us at if you’re interested in giving her a forever home!

"Do YOU know why no  one has picked me yet?"

“Do YOU know why no one has picked me yet?”

She is up for adoption thru Diamonds in the Ruff Rescue and can’t wait to find her forever home!

I Put My Dog Down Yesterday

This article is so moving, so touching, so real. In rescue I’ve experienced some great ones that after ‘saving’, we freed them from their minds.
And then there is my dog, Caesar. He doesn’t allow people to come in, or around, my home for fear of….I don’t know. I have seen what he is capable of when his fear aggression takes over, which is more often than not, when we are outside. If the time comes where he can’t be with me or can no longer be managed, I too will have to free him from his mind.
Kudos to the author for documenting such a sad, yet commendable reality.

Pound Puppy Rescue


I put my dog down yesterday. He was not sick. He was not old. I rescued him over 8 years ago when he was only 2 months old. And I put him down to rescue him again.

Sutter would have been one of the 4 million dogs euthanized in a US shelter that year. But instead, he and his litter mates were rescued by Pound Puppy Rescue, a local puppy rescue. Just days old when he was brought into his foster home, Sutter and his litter mates were bottle fed until they could eat on their own.

Sutter was the most beautiful dog I had ever seen. Deep red coat and amber eyes. Naturally athletic. We were unsure of his breed but a DNA test told us cattle dog and boxer. His herding and hunting instincts were interminable. And from the very moment I got him, something was ‘off’.
