Hours and Directions


Thinking about dropping by? Whether you’re looking for a lost pet, adopting a new best friend or getting a dog license, we’ll be glad to have you visit.

We are located at 111 W. Hunting Park Ave, across the street from the running track and shortly before the intersection of Hunting Park Ave and Front Street. We suggest parking in our smaller parking lot outside of the animal adoption center as it is most convenient to the entrance of the shelter.

We have more than 200 dogs, cats and critters looking for homes at our shelter! Stop by and find your new best friend. You can read more about our adoption process here
Owner Surrenders
By appointment only. Please reach out to the Help Desk at helpdesk@acctphilly.org to make an appointment. 
Please view our resources that may help you keep or rehome your pet instead of surrendering them.
