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.

My name is Sonnet and I am an 8 week old female Australian Shepherd mix . I’m a dog with high energy which means that a secure fenced yard is preferred, as well as a home with no younger children. I will need much training and consistency but I’m definitely worth joining a lovely home.
Zach here is a 3-5 year old, 12-pound male Mini Pinscher with a whole lot of energy and a fun-loving attitude. This little guy needs a family that will give him gentle care, ideally a home with older children is preferred. Zach is house and crate trained and is looking for an excellent family to be loyal to.
