RALLY FOR CHANGE JOIN PHILADELPHIA RESIDENTS, ANIMAL ADVOCATES AND ACCT VOLUNTEERS FOR A PEACEFUL MARCH TO DEMAND A CHANGE IN LEADERSHIP AT ANIMAL CARE & CONTROL OF PHILADELPHIA.
The current management’s sole purpose has been to execute a marketing campaign to mislead the city, board and the public of the state of affairs at ACCT. Volunteers and rescues have walked away due to a lack of transparency and for being reprimanded for speaking up when they see wrong doing. There has been a mass resignation of staff due to a hostile work environment and this has immensely impacted the welfare of the animals at ACCT (documented in the latest warden report).
We are ALL aware that the current warehouse cannot accommodate the demand of the city and were all hopeful that the hiring of Aurora would allow for new initiatives to better the shelter and perhaps for the board to finally concentrate on fundraising for a better space. This was not the case.
There have been documented cases of animals being placed unaltered, infectious, terminal and now with an owned animal being brutally injured and murdered, the board needs to make a decision. The animal community of Philadelphia can be the best advocate for ACCT and help this board survive a transition – we are asking you to terminate this reign of abuse and start the healing for all.

Being tax paying citizens, rescue partners and hard working volunteers, we demand that the animals in care of ACCT Philly be treated in humane and ethical ways that align with the values of everyone else in the rescue community. The standards for ACCT Philly are incredibly low and there have been no repercussions for continuously failed kennel inspections and the mishandling of animals. The issues have all worsened or have originated under the leadership of Aurora Velazquez and that is why we demand she step down and is replaced with an experienced, compassionate leader who will ensure that the cities discarded animals are maintained in healthy, clean and respected state.
If you cannot attend please email the following individuals and make your voice heard by stating "Although I cannot attend the RALLY for CHANGE, I support a change of leadership at ACCT Philly to provide humane care for the animals."
