Donate to a Fund

Each year thousands of sick and injured animals arrive at the Animal Care and Control Team of Philadelphia (ACCT Philly). Simple medical procedures can save their lives! The Stella Fund, named after a beloved family pet adopted from ACCT Philly, helps cover the costs of simple diagnostic tests, surgical procedures and treatments, saving lives.

ACCT Philly provides shelter, care and lifesaving efforts for approximately thousands of Philadelphia’s homeless, abandoned and neglected animals each and every year. Stella was one out of many, but she is the perfect cat for her adoptive family, filling their lives with love and great joy. She represents the possibility that exists for each and every individual homeless animal who passes through our doors. Each one has the potential to brighten someone’s life… and you have the power to make it happen!

Launched in May of 2020, the P.E.T.S. Fund, helps Philadelphians and their pets stay together and help reunite lost pets with their owners.

As the largest open intake shelter in the region and Philadelphia’s only Animal Care and Control provider, ACCT Philly is on the front lines, helping these pets and their families. We take in as many as 18,000 animals a year, which doesn’t include the thousands of pets helped through our pet pantry or other surrender prevention efforts. The P.E.T.S. Fund will help us do even more.

It has helped dogs like London, whose owners wanted desperately to keep her when she became ill. They took her to the vet and were told she needed surgery that would cost $6,000. They began to try to find the funds, but she became sicker, so they brought her to the shelter, hoping someone could help her. Thanks to the P.E.T.S. Fund, we got London the surgery she needed, and the 13-year-old Mastiff was reunited with her family.

Sometimes all a homeless pet needs to find a loving home is shelter and some TLC, but often, the pets arriving at ACCT Philly need more than that. Each year, ACCT takes in many dogs with injuries or other ailments that hinder their chance at finding a home of their own. But through the Yoda Fund, you can help can us help them.

Founded in December of 2019 by ACCT Board member Marsha Perelman in memory of her dog Yoda, the Yoda Fund helps these dogs get a the urgent care they need. Yoda was a very loved dog who needed significant medical care when he first entered the shelter and throughout his stay there. In his memory, the Yoda Fund helps to cover the costs of diagnostic tests, surgical procedures and treatments for dogs in need of a bit of additional medical care to rebound and find a home, or to be placed with a rescue.

The Yoda Fund has already helped save the lives of the dogs pictured below and others. With your help, can continue to help us save more lives.
