Available Dogs

Most dogs are located at our shelter, at 111 W Hunting Park Ave, Philadelphia, PA. However we also have dogs in foster care who are also available for adoption and are listed below the dogs at our shelter.

How to adopt:

For animals located at the shelter, you can stop by between 10 a.m.-6 p.m. You will be asked to sign up on our waitlist, which you can also do here before you arrive.

Please note the wait time listed is often much longer than the actual wait time, so we encourage you to sign up when you are less than 30 minutes from the shelter.

You can also now fill out an adoption application for dogs before you come to the shelter!

This will expedite the process, as it allows us to have this information on hand when you arrive, as well as store it for the future! Please note that filling out an application does not place any kind of hold on an animal, nor does it guarantee an adoption. You will not be contacted after filling out an application, it will only be used if you come to the shelter for an animal you are interested in.

What to bring with you on adoption day:

  • An up-to-date photo ID
  • We require that any resident dogs and children come to meet any potential new dog family members. If this isn’t possible we encourage you to email us about an exception, as we cannot guarantee one will be made on site
  • A leash and collar or harness and leash

What are the benefits of your adoption?
Your adopted dog will be microchipped, provided flea preventative and dewormed, given age appropriate vaccines, and spayed or neutered – normally these services would cost a dog owner in Philadelphia more than $500!

We are now open to the public 10am-6pm daily. Masks are optional

  • Puppy (Under 6 Months): $255
  • Adult dog (6mos – 2 years): $80
  • Adult dog (2 years – 7 years) $70
  • Senior Dog (7 years or older): $25
