Cat of the Week: Sam

After 11 years, Sam’s (A12484666) owners brought her to the shelter because of house soiling. She seems to be doing fine with her litter box here at the shelter, though! They report she’s a shy, talkative cat. Sam is gorgeous and would probably do best in a quieter home. Don’t give up on poor Sam; do you have a place in your heart for this sweet girl?

Adopted so far




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

Don’t forget to check out the weekly Animal Care & Control event at the Petsmart in Haldeman Plaza, where you can learn more about adoption and foster care, and meet some animals who need a good home.
