Marchers needed! Once again Philadoptables has been invited to participate in the Wawa Welcome America Independence Day Parade on Thursday, July 4th, 2019! Volunteers would be needed in center city Philly from approx. 10am-1pm. We usually carry a giant flag and you might even be on TV! It is always a great time and we like to take adoptable dogs with us if it is not too hot. It is not a long or strenuous event- if you would like to sign up please contact firstname.lastname@example.org!
The 2018 Camp Out for Hunger was a huge success! Philadoptables would like to make a point to thank WMMR, The Preston and Steve Show, Pet Valu, all of the businesses and individuals that contributed pet food donations, and of course all of the volunteers that made this possible.
Just as there are homeless people in need, there are also many homeless animals in our area that go without. All of the donations that we have collected will help stock up the pet food pantry, feed and help animals at ACCT Philly, as well as animals that are in foster care through our local rescue partners. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
Sometimes our friends at ACCT Philly just need a little extra help and we’re happy to provide it! On November 4th, while staff was inside busy with their lifesaving work, our volunteers pulled weeds, picked up trash, make treats for pups, fixed dog beds and MUCH more! This would not have been possible without our awesome crew of volunteers. Thank you to all who helped out!
On November 3rd, Philadoptables and Catadelphia joined forces to host another cat shelter building workshop. Participants learned how to build these awesome winter shelters and then took them home to place in their communities for homeless kitties. Over 200 shelters were built at this event!
We are looking for businesses, offices, schools, and individuals to collect donated pet food for our annual pet food drive at Camp Out for Hunger 2018.
Many people don’t know that Philadoptables stocks a pet food pantry in Philadelphia for people who cannot feed their pets. Over 300 animals are helped monthly! In 2010 Philadoptables was invited to collect pet food at WMMR’s The Preston & Steve Show’s Camp Out For Hunger. This event has been a food drive for people since its inception, but the show hosts were kind enough to see the effect the economy was having on animals and their families. Collected pet food goes to families in need, foster parents of Philly’s animal control shelter and rescue partners who pull animals from the Philly shelter and into their loving care.
This will be our NINTH year being part of this amazing event! Philadoptables’ preparation begins a few months in advance as we start identifying locations to place collection boxes – schools, offices, stores, everywhere we can think ok! Our volunteers are amazing, and all collected food is brought to the BIG EVENT – November 26th through 30th at Xfinity Live! Email us at email@example.com if you can help feed hungry animals!
Traditionally show hosts Preston and Steve live in an RV for a week while conducting live shows out of a giant tent. This week-long event is super fun but more importantly – everyone there is donating people and pet food of those in need. As we ramp up for Camp Out 2018, we need your help more than ever! We are looking for folks to help collect donated pet food – we will provide a letter of introduction, downloadable flyers, and posters.
Follow us on Facebook for updates as we ramp up to the event. Your help is needed to make this year a success!
