Animal Coalition of Delaware County, Inc.

Mission Statement:

The Animal Coalition of Delaware County is a 501 (c) (3), non-profit, all-volunteer, charitable organization registered with the Pennsylvania Department of State.  Our mission is to reduce stray and shelter animal populations in the Philadelphia region by finding permanent homes for adoptable dogs, cats and rabbits.  Underlying this mission is a strong commitment to educating the public about the importance of spaying, neutering and the realistic responsibilitis of long-term pet ownership.

How We Do What We Do: 

We're open 24/7! We are a virtual shelter. You can reach us any time, day or night, via the e-mail address on our web site or our phone # 610-876-1479. Our hardworking group is all-volunteer and all-foster, which means that the dogs, cats and rabbits in our care reside in the safe haven of a foster home until they are adopted. We get to know our foster pets very well so that we can match potential adopters and pets during our screening and interviewing process prior to adoption. Being all-volunteer also means that we have very little overhead, so the donations we collect go directly towards providing veterinary care and adoption promotion for our pets.

We ask that you be patient with us in responding to your emails, calls and faxes. We are an all-volunteer group and do what we do because we love animals. We also have full time jobs and families and many of us have foster pets in addition to our own, so we do our best to respond as quickly as possible.  If you feel as though it is taking an exceptionally long time, we apologize. Please be patient with us. Thank you. 

The Animal Coalition makes sure that each pet in our care has been examined by a veterinarian, received any necessary vaccinations or tests and is spayed or neutered (if old enough) prior to adoption. 

We are not affiliated with any local, state or federal agency or any other SPCA or humane group. Our work is supported entirely by the generosity of the general public and the group members. Since we are now 501 (c) (3), donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
