Adopt a Pet: ‘Mummers and Mutts’ and PHL17 Morning News

PHL17 Morning News has partnered with the organization Mums and Mutts for an important cause. Megan McFarland, an animal activist who runs the Mums and Mutts program, has made connections with local animal shelters to help our furry friends find their forever homes. McFarland is a Mummer and has combined her love of the Mummers and animals in need to create this incredible program. This page is updated weekly with the animals we share on PHL17 Morning News.

Tricity is a 6 year old female Miniature Poodle Mix who has been through it all. This lady was badly neglected before she arrived at the rescue, with chronic dry eye and a mangled leg that needed to be amputated. Now that she’s on the mend Tricity is looking for her perfect forever home. Sweet and cuddly, she loves to snuggle and will keep you warm during these cold winter months. Her favorite activities include cuddling in a human lap, lounging in her bed, and playing fetch with a tennis ball or squeak toy.


Named after a noisy, vibrant city that is full of character and spunk, Mumbai is anything but dull. This 2 year old, male Terrier mix has an adorable grin featuring his superb under-bite. Mumbai was found as a stray, but he is more than willing to play with other people and dogs!


Colby is a 3 year old, male Pit Bull with the best cow markings! This handsome fellow was found as a stray, sporting an adorably big head and a soft pink muzzle. Colby seems to enjoy other dogs and people of all sizes! He also knows how to sit on command and we are working on learning what other tricks he might have up his sleeve!


Tufts is a 4 year old, Flat Coat Retriever mix who was surrendered by his owner.Tufts enjoys going on runs, looking out the window, and getting way too close to the camera for pictures. He would do well in an active home where he is able to go on new and exciting adventures with his family. He is energetic, sweet and happy!
