You can stop looking for your new family member now, because once you see Dino, you won’t need to look any further.26604911215_32f6ed3475_k

This extremely handsome 3 year old boy is made up of one part beauty and one part brains. He was surrendered to us when his family had to move, so living in a home is still fresh in his mind and we know he wants nothing more than to be back in one ASAP. Dino likes other dogs his own size & bigger but isn’t a fan of those little dogs or cats. With the bigger dogs though, Dino is very eager to play and would just need some help in learning how to properly play with another dog (No humping, Dino!). (check out the video of this meet HERE )


His sweet and gentle nature would make him perfect for just about any home scenario, plus he’s on the smaller side of around 40lbs. He can come off a little shy when meeting new people, but shortly after he warms up and doesn’t want to leave your side. He’s happiest when he is out on walks with his human friends and since he’s pretty easy on the leash, it’s easy to want to spend time with him outside.26189497783_f992bdfc06_o

Dino did come to us with some skin issues (Deep Pyoderma) due to some type of untreated allergy but with medicine and baths (Dino is such a good boy in the bath) it has been clearing up at a steady pace and is almost as good as new. Also, Dino is an angel in the car so if you wanted to take a beach trip, he’d totally be up for that! Come in to meet the amazing Dino and let’s get him back into a loving home where he belongs!13103454_10154074869115119_6486247010019845621_n

Come meet Dino at Acct Philly 7 days week! 111 West Hunting Park Avenue, Phila. ,PA 19140  Monday-Friday 1pm-8pm and Weekends/Holidays 10am-5pm13138880_10154074869030119_3080011034223907690_n


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

Busterboy is Move-in Ready!

Buster Boy is ready for a home!


Meet Buster Boy (A22965355), the best boy in town! That’s right, he’s pretty perfect in every way and is a favorite of many of us here! Buster Boy is a young adult mixed breed (Labrador perhaps or just a mix of awesomeness!) who came in as a stray. We know he had a home at one point because of how house trained he is! He’s about 55lbs but in need of some extra goodies to fatten him up a bit. He’s a big fan of treats of any kind and will gently take them from your hands AND catch them in the air! Buster Boy is a playful boy, with both people and dogs, and to watch him run is pretty comical. He’s sure to make you laugh when you watch him run because he looks like a deer learning to walk, it’s just too cute. He will play fetch, run around with you, keep his self busy with toys and will give up toys easily when asked. He’s a fantastic boy on the leash, walks right by your side, loves to sniff around and explore the area. Have to take a car ride somewhere, Buster Boy will climb right into your car and hang out in the back seat. He’s met a 10 year old and ran around the play yards with her, so he would be okay in a home with kids, but just be sure to bring them along to meet him. His favorite thing is to get butt scratches, he loves them! He will lean his whole body in to you for more and give you the biggest smiles. Did we mention his tongue? This boy could most likely be in the Guinness Book of World Records for the longest tongue. . …ever! 
Buster Boy has been in the doggie playgroups and he has a great time with the calmer, mellow pups. As for the rough and tumble dogs, he prefers to just watch them from afar. He’s a gentle soul so he likes other gentle, calm dogs. He will play bow every dog he sees though and wants to meet them to say hello. If they start to play and they get too hyper for him, he just calmly walks away. Buster Boy is an all-around great boy and would do great in a home with another dog like him. If you’re looking for a new addition to your family, look no further than him, he’s absolutely perfect.
