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.

Hey there! How is it going? I’m doing just fine. My name is Mays. I’m a shy, but happy fella. I am looking for somewhere I can call “home” and just be myself. I would like to have a loving family and a home where I can relax. It would be FANTASTIC to go home with you today!


Hi there, my name’s Copper (mostly because of the flecks in my  coat). I’m a true plott hound breed and I love being outdoors and get super excited when my volunteer buddies take me for a pack walk. I’d do best in an adult only home due to my large size and energetic personality.


Milo is a special little guy that needs a special home. He is a cute dog who can be very sweet but he does come with some behavioral issues. Because of this he can only go to a home that has experience and understands this type of issue. If you are experienced with resource guarding and know how to handle behavioral issues such as space and people guarding Milo is looking for his hero. Could you be that person?


Hi! I’m Mermaid. I’ve been here for quite awhile waiting for the perfect forever home. I love fetching tennis balls and running around the yard. I know Sit, Wait, Paw, and I have my own version of Speak. I would make a perfect fit for any home.


Stovetop’s the name (yes, like the stuffing, but even better!). I’m a 10 month old, spunky pup who is searching for my forever home. My ideal family should be just like me – young and active!
