Due to higher incidents of upper respiratory illness in our canine population, we have taken precautionary measures and have temporarily closed our adoption centers on Erie Ave in Philadelphia and Central Pa Center at Danville. Our Wellness Clinic, Grooming and Surgery are operating under normal business hours. We look forward to resuming our adoption operations as quickly as possible. The health of our animals and community is our highest priority. Thank you for your support!
