Reviews for Francisvale Home For Smaller Animals

Rating: 5 stars  

I highly recommend Francisvale Home for Smaller Animals to anyone looking to adopt a companion animal! All the staff and volunteers are caring, and they are thorough and professional in placing their pups and cats.

This facility has its roots in the early 1900's with one lady who loved animals, and everyone there, staff and volunteers alike, works to continue her dream. A truly loving and compassionate group of people!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Do more outreach to the public.

Hello: As an animal lover, and someone that has utilized Francisvale in the past, I would highly recommend getting involved - as a volunteer; if you're looking to adopt a pet, and especially if you'd like to assist them with their cause.

There is a tremendous way to get involved in donating, and it won't even cost you a dime! In fact, it will save you money each month, and Francisvale will receive a one-time payment of $15.00, and a monthly recurring amount too .. simply by YOU saving money on your electric bill each month! That's correct, you save money each month, and Francisvaie MAKES money each month (and in a one-time payment too).

As part of the deregulation of the energy business here in Pennsylvania, there is now competition in the electricity marketplace. As such, you now have options on who is your provider of electricity. Competition means lower pricing than the large mega-providing incumbents (PECO in this case). The best part is that nothing changes by you switching who provides the "distribution" of the electricity. PECO continues to service your account; do the billing, etc. All you're doing is opting to pay less per month vs. what they're currently charging you. AND, in the process of saving money each month, are helping Francisvale obtain funding they would normally not have. Consider all incidentals that are involved in running an organization like Francisvale on a daily basis - food for the animals, treats, medicines, housing, cleaning supplies (laundry detergent, water, hoses, buckets, soaps, mats, towels, etc.). The list goes on and on...

Consider the amount of money they would generate should the word get out of this fabulous program .. say just 300 or so families:

300 x $15.00 = $4,500.00 in a one-time payment
300 x $2.00 = $600.00 per month (month-after-month as long as the customer stays with Park Power)

That monthly revenue would be an incredible boost to their efforts. Again, the customer is saving money on their electric bill each month, and Francisvale is making money! What could be better ..

You can save money on both residential and commercial rates.

To participate please reach out to myself (& Francisvale) and let us know that you're interested in doing so. Then simply switch your service with the following link:


Click "Become a Customer" at the top, then simply fill in your zip code. There are options available to you as to whether or not you'd like a "variable rate", or to lock-in a "fixed rate". The process takes about 2 minutes to complete. All you'll need would be your current electric bill account number.

We are currently offering service in the following territories:
Duquesne Power

We are currently "testing" with Atlantic City Power

Should someone wish to support Francisvale in any of these service areas, it's certainly possible to do so, but contact us first so we can make sure the proper credit is given to Francisvale.

Thank you,

Bob Hoffsis

I began volunteering here this past summer and I've never seen such happy and loved animals at a shelter before. The staff are friendly and personable and I am proud to volunteer my time. The care and attention the animals get makes everyone who adopts certain of the animals behavior and special needs. I really hope you consider adopting a pet if you can, especially from Francisvale. Adopting a pet from here will help them open space for other animals that are on the line :)

Would you volunteer for this group again?
