    I FOUND MY DOG!! I called ACCT Philly @6:15 am, and pressed #2 to report a dog loose on the street. The call went to the 2 young ladies out on the street patrolling, it's a miracle for sure what happened next. The woman was telling me to go on ACCT's website to post a lost ad when she asked me to hold on and asked me the details of the dog, she had him right there!! I drove over within seconds and sure enough it was my dog. What a wonderful duo this pair is from ACCT that's on the street looking for strays. It really is a great service if you get to them on time. Thanks again, ACCT Philly!
