Sossa needs a home


Sossa is a 1-year-old medium-sized terrier mix, surrendered to the shelter because the previous family was too busy.


Sossa is very friendly and gets along well with oth­er dogs, kids, cats and even strangers. Sossa knows a few com­mands, such as “come”, “sit”, and “no”. Sossa’s tag num­ber is A19407102. Phil­adelphia’s An­im­al Care and Con­trol is loc­ated at 111 W. Hunt­ing Park Av­en­ue.


Adoption hours are weekdays from 1 to 8 p.m. and weekends from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. ••

Biggie has a big heart

Biggie is a friendly 3-year-old white tabby. The poor boy was found in the parking lot of Philadelphia’s Animal Care and Control, at 111 W. Hunting Park Ave., and was taken in before he got hurt. He loves making friends, playing, and enjoys hugs and cuddles. Biggie is unsure of dogs but is great with kids and other social, active kitties.

Biggie is vaccinated, neutered and microchipped, and has tested negative for the feline leukemia and immunodeficiency viruses.

Be the apple of her eye


Lina is a 9-month-old calico, found on the streets of Philly with a horrible eye injury. She has since had surgery, where the doctors removed her eye. She is healing nicely and has settled in at her foster home. She can be feisty and would do best as an only cat or in a home with one or two other cats. She does not get along with dogs and has not met children. However, she is a real lap cat with adults.


Lina is spayed, vaccinated and microchipped, and has tested negative for the feline immunodeficiency and leukemia viruses.
