Mission:
Our mission is to assist displaced pets and their people 24/7 and free of charge to ensure that all family members are taken care of during a disaster at their home. We are a 501(c)(3) animal welfare and emergency services nonprofit organization that works in conjunction with the American Red Cross SEPA Chapter and other emergency relief organizations to provide emergency transport, shelter and veterinary care to animals involved in residential fires and other incidents. We also work within a network that includes veterinary care facilities, boarding facilities, kennels and training facilities, animal rescue groups and fosters in Philadelphia and surrounding counties.
Results:
Since our formation on July 25,2011, we’ve been called over 600 times to assistance in Philadelphia, Bucks, Montgomery, and Chester counties as well as the Lehigh Valley, Burlington and Camden, NJ. Incidents we’ve responded to include fires, house collapses, storm damage and flooding.

We’ve provided emergency transport, shelter, long term fostering, emergency vet care, on-going medical care and free food delivery to the fosters and rescues for over 1000 displaced pets.

We also worked within our network to get over half of the Red Paw animals spayed/neutered and vaccinated, at no cost to the owners, along with providing transportation to and from the facilities.

In 2012 we participated in a Hurricane Sandy Pet Supplies Drive where we delivered items donated by individuals and local businesses to pets along the East Coast displaced by Hurricane Sandy.
