Interested in adopting a pet — or just taking a peek at some cuddly canines up for adoption? There are dozens of great 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.)

Josie, terrier mix

Josie is a charming female terrier mix currently housed at Second Chances Rescue, Inc.

Josie wants to be your one and only: She will need a home free of other dogs and cats. She is already house-trained. Her vaccinations are already up to date, and she's spayed. Josie is a special needs pet, so please inquire about her specific care requirements.

Here's more about Josie:

This pup absolutely adores her people. She does not like other dogs so a house where she can be the only dog and have all your loving to herself is ideal for Josie. She is now house and crate-trained. She has learned countless sign language cues and loves to go through and show off her steps. Of course a little treat reward as motivation never hurts either.

Apply to adopt Josie today at Petfinder.
