Dig it: Spring ducklings! All sorts of sad things happen to ducklings this time of year. They get washed down storm drains, they get run over by cars, the mom gets caught in fishing line. We try to undo some of the damage that we humans cause. These little orphans will be raised to adulthood and get a second chance at freedom, maintaining their wildness the whole time.

Dig this: spring is Turtle Time at Philly Metro Wildlife. Lots of guys coming out of hibernation and getting hurt by us humans. This lovely fellow was run over by a car. Always watch the roads for turtles and other wildlife! If there's a snapper laying eggs in your yard, just leave her be. She'll move on in about a day, and when the babies hatch later in the summer, they'll quickly leave, you won't even see them go. Leave a space for our fellow travelers on Planet Earth, because until we develop Warp Drive, it's the only planet we've got.

President Trump said Thursday he wants the federal government to continue funding the Special Olympics, an abrupt reversal from his own budget proposal that eliminated federal money for the charity and sparked bipartisan condemnation.

Romeo and Bella are a perfect pair, and we would love to see them find a home together. Would two happy beach pups be the perfect fit for your family?

These sweet, easy, laid-back dogs really perk up when they're together. Come to ACCT's main shelter to meet them, and give [email protected] for more info on this adorable pair!

First baby Red Fox of the year. Before the Ooo's and Ahhh's commence, there are some important things to say about this:

First, it is only as a last resort that wildlife rehabbers take animals like this into human care. Most of the work we do is over the phone, and out of every call we receive about a possibly orphaned animal, we only need to admit about a quarter of them to the Center. The rest either just need to be left alone, or we can talk you through reuniting them with the parents. That's why experience is so critical in a wildlife rehabber.

Second, the red fox is a Rabies-vector Species in Pennsylvania, along with raccoons, woodchucks, skunks, coyotes, and bats. It is beyond critical that these animals are not handled with bare hands. Any mistakes here means a death sentence for the animal. Fay, the volunteer feeding the fox here, is vaccinated against rabies and has been volunteering for us for 13 years.

Third, this is a lone single fox...we eventually have to get it with others. The cardinal sin of wildlife rehabilitation is to rehab any animal in such a way that it becomes tame. To do that is a gross breach of our ethics, and will result in the death of the animal. It MUST be raised with others of its own kind, it MUST have absolutely minimal handling, and upon release (in this case, at about six months old), it MUST be 100% able to survive on its own. Teaching baby foxes to be foxes is not an easy task, especially because it must be done without them seeing humans. But, that's why we're here. We respect their wildness, we respect their free will.

Ok, you may resume ooh-ing and ahh-ing.

DELCO DAWGS is sending this post to all BIG DOG dog lovers who are looking to adopt!!! This is Tyson a 6 year young 83 lbs rottie/pit/mastiff ??? sweetheart. Through no fault of his own he found himself homeless, however, he’s not holding that against anyone. Delco Dawgs has had him neutered microchipped and given all his shots! Now he just needs his furever home! Tyson is friendly with other dogs, takes treats gently, has shown no food aggression and is housebroken. We are working on better leash manners he’s about 50% of the way there. Tyson understands commands in Spanish so we are working on teaching him English also. Please share this post and let’s get sweet Tyson adopted so Delco Dawgs can help save another dog in need!!!

Abandoned on a rainy Sunday at a local church, this chocolate-colored sweetheart is safe with us now thanks to our Humane Society Police Officer Ron Riggle. What should we name him?

Your donations will support his care and the care of every pet who has been neglected, abused or left behind.

PUPDATE:
Thank you to everyone who has shown interest in helping Brownie out! Brownie was pulled by one of our wonderful Love Local Partners, Camp Papillon Pet Adoption and Rescue. We are so glad she is on her way to a happy ever after!

Brownie is absolutely terrified to be here at the shelter, and won't come out of her kennel. It's hearbreaking, because she is reportedly good with other dogs and kids, and is usually very happy and playful. Can you rescue Brownie and help her feel safe?

BE ON ALERT! This bitter weather reminds us that we need to be heroes to animals who cannot defend or protect themselves. Phoenix, pictured before and after, was an emaciated, pregnant dog our Humane Officer found tethered on a frozen mattress on a cold night like tonight. Now, she's a pampered pet, as are her babies - who were born under our warm, loving care instead of a frozen, barren yard. If you see something, say something. In Chester and Delaware Counties, report cruelty to our Humane Law Enforcement line: 610-566-1370 x214.
