Animal Care and Control Team of Philadelphia
The Animal Care & Control Team of Philadelphia (ACCT Philly) is the region's largest animal care and control service provider. Contracted by the City of Philadelphia to provide animal control services, ACCT Philly's facility in North Philadelphia handles more than 25,000 of the city's animals annually, from dogs and cats, to small animals, reptiles, birds and wildlife.
In addition to animal control and sheltering, ACCT Philly is open 365 days a year for pet adoptions. ACCT Philly also supports a foster care program where community members provide temporary homes for sheltered animals and one of the (if not THE) most extensive rescue partnership program in the country where approved rescue partners accept ACCT Philly animals into their adoption programs. Under contract ACCT Philly's Animal Control Officers provides animal control services and code enforcement in the city of Philadelphia. Other exciting ACCT Philly programs include a food pantry for low-income pet owners, a vibrant volunteer program, a trap-neuter-return program for community cats, a unique Pen Pal program to assist dogs at risk … and so much more!
