The shelter is running out of space, and ultimately, they're coming to the heart-breaking decision of having to euthanize perfectly adoptable dogs - simply because there isn't enough room.

Just within the first week of the New Year, they've had over 60 dogs brought into the shelter, and now they are "beyond full on large dogs."

This is a trend that's been happening for a while, according to ACCT's director. Backyard breeders have been trying to sell puppies, but are unable to get buyers or adopters, so the pressure falls on the shelters when those dogs are dumped on them.

Inflation is another factor, according to ACCT Philly. With financial struggles still on the rise, many families are unable to feed their pets with rising prices. The shelter has frequented several evictions where the pets have been left behind. It's completely heartbreaking.
