Rescue Me: Kelly

Our very adoptable pet of the week

Rescue Me Pets
Kelly ACCT Philly/for PhillyVoice

Kelly needs a furever home.

Meet Kelly! This pretty grey tuxedo was living in a home for a few years but sadly a young child moved into the house who was repeatedly hospitalized for allergies. Kelly’s devastated owner said that she is quiet, playful, good with children, loves to be petted, always uses the litterbox, and likes to be brushed.

  • domestic shorthair
  • 4-years-old
  • female, neutered
  • housetrained

Kelly was nervous and scared in the shelter but found a nice foster home where she could relax and get back to her usual sweet self. She loves people and wants to be near her foster mom whenever she can, even sitting on her feet and looking up at her with a little chirp saying “please pet me!” Kelly has some cute quirks that make her a special girl.

After a thorough vet check, it was discovered that she has some vision issues which makes her hesitant to jump or climb. She also carries herself a bit low in her hind end, but her hips and knees appear strong and healthy. Kelly is a chatty girl and will also growl but she has never acted out in any way; it's just another unique way she vocalizes. This charismatic girl would do best in a quieter household. She seems to be okay with other animals, as long as they're on the more laid-back side, like her. She has great house manners and can't wait to meet you. You can email her foster mom for more info: greytful26 [at] yahoo [dot] com.

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.
