Here is a story from ACCT Philly that is going to break your heart, and that we desperately need your urgent help with.

This beautiful boy named Chubb has been stuck in a shelter for a long time, and no one has come to claim him. All he wants is a loving home with a family who will give him all the affection he’s missed out on all these long months. With it being summer, this shelter is packed with dogs desperately waiting for someone to adopt them, and it’s too much for poor Chubb.

He’s become scared in the kennel, where sudden and loud noises startle him. A crowded kennel is no place for a dog who is constantly frightened. Chubb might be put down just because the shelter environment scares him and it’s too overcrowded. 

All this poor boy needs is a little love and attention. He is great with people and has a great personality. Chubb is house-trained, and would sell his soul for a biscuit — and a squeaky toy! 

Chubb is a great fan of the outdoors as you can see here. He is much happier outdoors than in, handles great on a leash, and is an entirely different dog outside than when stuck inside the shelter.

We’re fighting for you, Chubb! He needs to be picked up immediately to save him from being euthanized. Please take a look at this beautiful little boy and consider making him a part of your family.



Adopted dogs have so much love to give, and so many like Chubb end up in desperate situations. Dogs kept in shelters for long periods can become agitated and develop anxiety and stress. 6.5 million animals enter our shelters each year. It is essential then that we become a nation of animal lovers who adopt their pets, instead of feeding the constant puppy farm cycle of store-bought pets.

ACCT Philly manages the city’s animal shelter facility in North Philadelphia, handling nearly 28,000 animals annually. If you are in a position to adopt Chubb or would like to know more about their vital work, please get in touch.
