Interested in adopting a pet — or just looking at some delightful doggies up for adoption? There are dozens of darling 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.)

Sky, shepherd and husky mix

Sky is a winsome female shepherd and husky mix currently residing at Furry Tales International Rescue Team.

Sky wants to be your one and only: She will need a home free of other dogs and cats. She's vaccinated. She has mastered her house-training etiquette.

Here's more about Sky:

This girl is super affectionate to all people and desperate for attention. Sky has a lot of bottled up energy and needs a large fenced-in yard for daily exercise. She cannot live with other dogs or cats at this time, because she gets very jealous and doesn’t want to share the attention of her owner. For this reason, we also recommend that she would go to a household with older children only.

Harley, mixed breed

Harley is a female mixed breed dog being kept at PAWS (Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society).

Harley gets along well with cats. No other dogs, please: She is looking for a dog-free household. Her vaccinations are already up to date.

Here's more about Harley:

She hops like a puppy when she gets excited, but otherwise Harley just loves snuggles and pets. She loves nothing more than to just lay in your lap. She remains friendly and happy-go-lucky. Harley is a big fan of walks and loved play time in the pool in her previous foster home. Housebroken and well-mannered, Harley already has plenty of training, and even knows tricks like "sit" and "paw." Harley could potentially live with kids who understand she's older, but who have no qualms about living with an occasionally bouncy, bigger pup.

Love, pit bull terrier mix

Love is an adorable female pit bull terrier mix being cared for at Animal Care and Control Team of Philadelphia.

She's already been spayed.

Here's more about Love:

This spunky three-year old is a medium sized girl who is playful, strong affectionate and energetic. An active family would be perfect for her because she really enjoys running around outside and going for long walks. She might even be a good running buddy. This pup has wounds on her face and legs that are mostly healed or healing. She appears to know commands like "sit."

Psylocke, pit bull terrier mix

Psylocke is an adorable female pit bull terrier mix being kept at Animal Care and Control Team of Philadelphia.

Psylocke is spayed.

Here's more about Psylocke:

She's super friendly to people if she's interested in meeting them. She's a big chewer and a little picky about squeaker toys, but she seems to like the ones that are silent to humans ears. She also loves to chase toys if you throw them. She's currently working on commands like stay, down and drop it.
