A great organization full of volunteers who truly have the best interest of animals at heart. There should be more people in this world who care about animals as much as they do!

More feedback...

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

take in every animal in the area that had bad experiences such as abuse, homelessness, diseases, etc. and find a home for each one in a loving environment

I started volunteering with ACDC in October of 2008. When I started, I was impressed with the different levels of involvement available to people. Of course, I wanted to get very involved right away! Working on the marketing committee and learning about dog intake from the president of the group, no less, has shown me that they have a very clear-cut plan of action for rescuing animals in the area, they have a lot of people who are very passionate about their cause, and they love for new volunteers to dive right in and get involved! With the Facebook fan page, I saw an opportunity that I thought I might be good at, and they let me do whatever I wanted on it, right from the start! With regards to the animals, all of our dogs, small animals, and most of our cats (minus the PetSmart Adoption Center rotation) are in foster homes. ACDC's intake coordinators are fantastic about catering to what the foster parents can handle. If an animal is ever too much, they find another home. When I can, I hope to foster, too!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

volunteering; also, ACDC has let me funnel my desire to rescue dogs in desperate situations

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The people (all volunteers!) are so passionate about their cause and are so welcoming of new ideas and new people!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

wonderfully knowledgeable, caring, and always had a funny story or 5 to share about the animals who have crossed their paths.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

open a very large shelter for itself and branch out geographically in terms of the animals they rescue.

they really screen potential adopters thoroughly-which means they are looking out for the best interests of the animals. Entirely run by volunteers, which means more $ is earmarked towards the care of the animals instead of salaries. I don't know how they do it all...

The Great!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

watching as a rescued animal-some very sick, injured or abused-heals and recovers, then finds their way into a new loving home.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very friendly and helpful.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Have an actual facility instead of using their private homes.

This is a wonderful organization that truly helps animals. The organization is run entirely by volunteers. As an animal rescue organization, they find adoptive families for homeless animals. The organization has a unique model---there is no physical shelter, but rather the animals live in foster homes throughout Pennsylvania's Delaware County--these are actually people who volunteer with the organization and have been approved to be foster parents. This model ensures the animals are socialized and they are also able to match up the animals with the best family for them since they know each animal's personality. It's amazing how much this organization does, especially given that it is run entirely by volunteers.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Since they were founded, more than 1,300 animals have been adopted! They ensure that all of the animals in their care are vaccinated, receive any necessary testing, and if they are old enough at the time of their adoption, they have been spayed/neutered.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Meeting other people who share a common passion for animals and their welfare

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Change the world where animals are concerned. They could build a shelter so they could rescue more animals, continue fostering animals and ensuring they are socialized, and find awesome families for them.
