Dog of the Week: Mark

Mark (A12870688) is a 1- to 2-year-old terrier mix. He was found running lose and brought to the shelter. Mark is extremely shut down and scared. He needs to get out of here ASAP so he can show his true colors. When he was outside he just stood around and shook.

He took treats and loved just receiving attention. Mark needs a loving family who will go slow with him and allow him to open up. He showed mild interest in cats and was OK with the dogs he met, though he preferred the female. Please bring your dog and any small children when you come to meet Mark. Please give this guy the amazing home he deserves!

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

Adopted so far





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
