Dog of the Week: Taffy

Taffy (A11786187) is a teeny, tiny 1- to 2-year-old black and white pit bull terrier mix who was originally found as a stray and brought to the shelter.

Poor Taffy went into foster care back in November, but ended up back at ACCT in April. Taffy came in with an open wound on her ear, which has since healed. Taffy hates it here at the shelter and is so very scared! She cannot wait to get out of here and be back with a family who loves her.

She has no issues with food or toys. She showed no interest in cats and was friendly and appropriate when meeting other dogs. Please come save this poor girl today! Email her Pen Pal at hayes.peg AT for more information!

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

On Saturday and Sunday, June 4 and 5, ACCT will host a Tropical Party complete with food and fun while you find your new best friend. Special adoption prices ($1 cats and $19.95 dogs) include spay/neuter, shots and micro-chipping. PSPCA Flier.
