Cat of the Week: Joe Joe

Look at this handsome tabby boy! Joe Joe (A12814032) is a 3-year-old male cat. He was found as a stray with no place to go. Joe Joe had a bite wound on his tail that was shaved and cleaned. Now he has a fancy looking tail! He also had a wound on his front leg, which is healing nicely. Joe Joe just needs to be on antibiotics for a few more days and he will be ready for his forever home! He is already neutered, chipped and combo test negative.

At Animal Care and Control you name your price to adopt an adult cat, kittens are $50. No matter what you choose to donate, the cat will be spay/neutered, micro chipped and up to date on all vaccinations.

These animals are located at Philadelphia’s animal control shelter, ACCT. They need immediate adoption or foster care.

ACCT is located at 111 W Hunting Park Ave. and is open 365 days a year. Please check the PSPCA website for hours. To check the status of an animal, call 267-385-3800, email nsmith AT or mdecker AT
