Rescue Me: Candy Corn

Our very adoptable pet of the week

Pets Rescue Me
Candy Corn ACCT Philly/for PhillyVoice

Candy Corn needs a furever home.

It's no coincidence that Candy Corn is named after a yummy treat … she's one of the sweetest dogs at the shelter!

  • pit bull mix
  • female, spayed
  • 3-years-old, 55 pounds
  • Housetrained: trying to be

Despite patiently waiting for a home for almost two months, Candy Corn keeps a sunny outlook and always wears her contagious smile. She is a very treat, motivated (i.e. a breeze to train!), already knows sit and is working on more cool tricks. Candy Corn is all about being with her people and is a total snuggle bug. She wants nothing more than a family to call her own, so come meet her today.


ACCT Philly strives to make adopting a pet an enjoyable, stress-free process. We ask that you bring a photo ID, proof of address and, if adopting a dog, any children or resident dogs who will be living with your new family member. After filling out a short adoption application, ACCT adoption counselors will help match you with the perfect pet.

All animals are spayed or neutered, up-to-date on age-appropriate vaccinations and have been examined by a veterinarian. Adoption fees and specials vary month to month and can be found on the ACCT website along with adoption locations and hours.
