Shop for love on Black Friday

While everyone else is braving the retail insanity the day after Thanksgiving, smart shoppers can head to Philadelphia's ACCT shelter and get the deal of a lifetime. All black animals are free and all of the other animals (including 11 red eared slider turtles!) in the shelter will have discounted adoption fees all day long. A furry new family member is one gift that will never go out of style and will bring more love than anything from the mall ever could. ACCT is even having extended shopping hours to make sure you can fit this amazing deal into your plans for the day. The shelter, located at 111 W. Hunting Park Avenue, Philadelphia, 19140, will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., with plenty of staff and volunteers to help you get the perfect pet for your home and family.

The shelter is full and even if you can't adopt right now, fostering a dog, cat or some tiny kittens in need can save both their lives and those of the animals that fill the spot they vacate. For information on fostering, check out ACCT's website where you can get details and fill out an online application (here for dogs and cats here)or download a printable one to bring with you (dogs or cats). Foster homes get the full support of the shelter for all medical needs and there is often free food and/or treats available as well. Email [email protected] with any questions.
