We support Philly's animal control shelter whose annual intake of unwanted animals was over 33,000 in 2012! Some of our work: donating medical supplies and equipment, supporting adoption events, celebrating shelter volunteers, stocking a pet food pantry for people in need, building 6 shelter dog play yards at ACCT Philly and more. Philadoptables is made up of volunteers. We have little in the way of expenses- donated dollars go right to the animals!
It means the world to me to be doing this life-saving work. xo

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

hope for more funding. Winning more grants means we can save more homeless animals!

This is a great organization that really cares about animals. They help save them, foster and get them forever homes through adoption. I am proud to write this review for them.

Philadoptables has been a tremendously supportive and effective partner for ACCT Philly. Whether it is supporting our food pantry for the public, providing enrichment for our shelter animals or collaborating with us and other humane organizations to fund raise, they always seem to come through. ACCT Philly is proud to be associated with Philadoptables.

I am a Board Member for this organization. We all volunteer 100% of our time to help homeless animals in the Philadelphia area. We really provide much needed medical supplies for ACCT Philly and enrichment for the animals, by providing structures, agility equipment and toys and treats. We also provide food for needy families to keep them together, rather than a family turning in a family member, because they simply can't afford basic needs for them. We have offered low cost vaccines, flea and tick medications. We hold adoption events, spend a week collecting food with Preston & Steve Camp out for Hunger (WMMR) to distribute this food to foster families and local rescues in the Delaware Valley Area. If you are in need, please reach out to us at info@philadoptables.org and we will see what we can do to help.

I am so proud to be a member of this board and secretary. We provide much needed medical supplies, enrichment for the animals, food for the pantry, dog runs, play yards and improvements to the cat rooms. All of the board members volunteer at the shelter. We hold various fundraisers to be able to provide whatever the shelter needs. ACCT in Philadelphia is the only intake shelter in the Philadelphia area, so no animal is turned away and this puts a tremendous strain on the resources that the City of Philadelphia provides. I know the work we are doing is saving lives and we are making a difference. Won't you join us? "You must be the change you wish to see in the world" author unknown.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find us several huge benefactors and more volunteers to help us put forth our mission.

We are extremely fortunate to Philadoptables in the area. They are a blessing to community with their programs/outreach and they also go over and above to help local rescues.

Great things for dogs and cats! They provide resources for animals in a high kill, underfunded shelter. Pet food for people who can't afford the food. Covered areas for dogs to play outside and stay sane in any weather. Special events for adoptions. Lots more. 100% of their funds go to the animals. Everyone at Philadoptables is a volunteer.

I've had the privilege last year, at a fundraising event, to witness a woman walk up to this organizations table. She proceeded to tell them how she has 5 foster dogs and how she is involved to the shelter/rescue world, and how she was stressing about feeding them. Then, philadoptables great crew loaded this woman's car with several large bags of dog and cat food. The woman was in tears! She was so grateful!
This is just one example of how philadoptables has impacted our area. They help so many families keep their pets, when they would otherwise not be able to afford to keep them fed.

These people are very caring and committed. They get themselves out in the public eye at events large and small and bring some of their charges with them. I can see by the way the animals react they are loved and well taken care of.

I've known Michelle for a while now and I just recently had to privilege to work on their calendar to raise money for shelters in the area. I love what they do, and since I used to work for one of the shelters they raised money for I was honored to be a part of it!
