Philadoptables is an independent 501(c)3 non-profit corporation that provides support for adoption, welfare, and outreach programs that benefit the 30,000+ animals received each year by the Philadelphia Animal Control Shelter, the Delaware Valley Region’s largest open-door municipal animal shelter.
By working with volunteers, animal welfare groups, organizations outside the animal network, and communities throughout the Delaware Valley Region, our goal is to save lives and to build a better community – for people and animals alike.
- Increasing the number of animals saved through adoptions, foster homes, and rescue partners at Philadelphia’s animal control shelter;
- Improving conditions at the shelter by supporting essential services not funded by the City’s animal control budget;
- Educating the public and generating community involvement about the shelter and the animals in its care.
Philadoptables is comprised entirely of volunteers. We have no paid staff and nominal overhead expenses.
We are the only non-profit organization dedicated entirely to Philadelphia’s animal control shelter.
