Interested in adopting a pet — or just looking at some delightful doggies up for adoption? There are dozens of deserving dogs up for adoption at animal shelters in and around Philadelphia.
Animal shelters and pet rescue groups work hard to care for unhoused pets and connect them to loving homes. Hoodline used data from Petfinder to power this roundup of dogs currently available for adoption.
(Details like pet availability, training, vaccinations and other features are based on data provided by Petfinder and may be subject to change; contact the shelter for the latest information.)
Mario, terrier mix
Mario is a male terrier mix being cared for at PAWS (Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society).
Mario will do best in a home without small children. He is already house-trained. Mario is already neutered and vaccinated.
Here's more about Mario:
He's a tiny spitfire who knows how to tug your heart strings. What Mario needs is someone patient, mindful and dog-experienced. He has a tough time meeting new people, but once he trusts you he makes a great couch buddy. He's still getting the hang of learning to share his food and other "high-value treats," so we recommend a child-free home. Mario may be able to get along with similarly-sized calm female dogs, but he's not a fan of cats or other gentleman dogs.

Evi, Australian cattle dog
Evi is a female Australian cattle dog dog currently residing at Australian Cattle Dog Rescue Association, Inc.
Evi is friendly as can be — she'll get along great with other dogs. Her vaccinations are already up to date. She's mastered her house-training etiquette.
Here's more about Evi:
Evi’s personality will definitely spark excitement and bring lots of fun into your life. Evi is about four years old and full of energy. She would play ball all day long. Otherwise, she’ll squeak some toys, chew some bones and even take naps when we’re not available to occupy her. Evi loves every human she meets. She is very dedicated to her (foster) humans and will follow us all day long. She’s also crate-trained and rides well in a car.

Tootie, pit bull terrier mix
Tootie is a sweet female pit bull terrier mix in the care of PAWS (Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society).
Tootie needs special time to bond with you: She will need a home free of other dogs. She does do well with children. She already has had all of her shots, and she is spayed.
Here's more about Tootie:
Tootie has lots of energy and would make a good running buddy. She'd also make a great couch buddy. Tootie could live with older, dog-experienced children who aren't bothered by her energy and who could help with her training. She'd love to be the center of attention as your only pet.

Greta, terrier mix
Greta is a sweet female terrier mix currently housed at PAWS (Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society).
Greta is vaccinated.
Here's more about Greta:
Greta is down one eye, but it does not slow her down one bit. She is a fun-loving and energetic pup who likes the basic things in life: all food, toys, and most importantly, her people. She wants to be as close to you for as long as possible, but she is still well-behaved when left alone during the day.
