Cat of the Week: Ms. Snorlax

Ms. Snorlax (14399452), a 10- to 15-year-old tabby cat, who was surrendered because she’s “too old,” doesn’t deserve to be in the shelter!

She deserves to be in a home, where hopefully, someone will put her on a diet, since she’s rather rotund. Ms. Snorlax is very sweet, and certainly does not act her age: she’s right up for affection, and doesn’t even seem that nervous around new people (even though she’d obviously rather be with her family). She’s a docile older lady who just wants a home…

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. Adoption hours are Monday-Friday; 1pm-8pm; Saturday and Sunday; 10am-5pm. To check the status of an animal, call 267-385-3800. Check in every week with NEast Philly to see the cat and dog of the week.

This weekend, you can visit ACCT pets at:

PetSmart, Cottman and Bustleton, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The ACCT Adoption Center is open: Monday through Friday 1:00 PM to 8:00 PM Saturday and Sunday 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM
