We decided to close out 2020 by donating to 12 local animal welfare charities that help Philadelphia’s homeless animals – for a total of $6,000! We hope that this small gesture will kickstart the year for these amazing organizations who rely on the generosity of their donors to continue their lifesaving work. Together these organizations saved hundreds of animals this year as well as helping community cats and owned pets! It was so very exciting for us to be able to give back and we could not have done it without you.
If you are considering making an end of year donation, we would like you to choose Philadoptables! This year, more than ever, we see the need to help members of our community with pet food and pet care. With your help, we can help even more animals and people in 2021! As always, thank you for your support and Happy New Year! Donate Here
We donated $10,000 to ACCT Philly for Comfort Cages! This donation will help ensure that the thousands of cats ACCT takes in each year don’t stay in noisy cages sleeping next to their litterbox, but instead wait for homes in quieter, better ventilated and more spacious housing, reducing stress and disease.
We could not do this good work without the support of our donors and friends!
Our annual pet food drive was a success for a few reasons:
- Amazing supporters sent Amazon donations from our wish list!! THANK YOU to Michele O/Poshy Blooms, Barbara C, Heather M, Carrie H, John H, Joan M, Blair P, Randalynn K, Samantha R, and others- some donations came without a donor name.
- Corporate partners Pet Valu and Finance of America Cares who helped with food, and
- Our wonderful volunteers who set up collection boxes in the Delaware Valley! Every donation is appreciated and is now in the paws of hungry dogs and cats.
In line with our mission, we have shared donations with some local rescues, some community cat feeders (who feed outside cats 365 and pay for the food themselves), and to the public at our pet food pantry last Saturday!
Our annual pet food drive has officially ended but we can still take donations– monetary or pet food- if you missed it.
Today’s event- distributing tons of much needed pet food to SW Philly residents- was the culmination of weeks of planning and a month long pet food collection. We were able to distribute this pet food to families in need because our donors are so generous and sent us boxes of pet food from our Amazon wish list, Pet Valu gave us a pallet of pet food, our super fantastic volunteers collected pet food throughout the state and our friends at Finance of America Cares supported us with a $2500 grant, which we happily spent on wet/dry cat food and cat litter. Diana has never been so excited!
When we first founded Philadoptables, our mission was to support the city’s open in take animal shelter ( now ACCT Philly ) and through the years we’ve grown to include rescues who pull from the city shelter, community cats, and owned pets in need. We are very excited to take the next step and do more in the community with amazing groups like Philly Auto and Parole (PAAP).
Please enjoy these pics of us, braving the wind, and helping hungry pets! Much thanks to The Arrimour Group for lending us their giant truck to transport our food and of course or partners today, PAAP, who organized, promoted, and hosted the pet food pantry.
