Please add Finding Shelter Animal Rescue to this list! They are an all-breed, no-kill, 501c3 rescue based in Norristown, PA. All of their animals are in foster care.. They can be found on Facebook, or at findingshelter.org. Thanks!

This is a very incomplete list. You left out my favorite, Cat Angel Network, in the Pottstown area. www.catangel.org. They have lots of healthy cats and kittens (and more coming shortly, when kitten season hits) at the PetSmart stores in Pottstown and Downingtown.

And don't forget Spay & Save also an all-breed, no-kill rescue based in Lafayette Hill, PA. All animals are in foster care. Animals have been retrieved from ACCT, and also from a veterinary office in North Philadelphia where animals are abandoned. www.spayandsave.org

The Delaware County SPCA has become a warehouse for pitbulls and i wouldn't give these misguided losers a nickel to reward them for the mess they have made in Delaware County. Bill Zardus
