My husband and I adopted two wonderful kitties from the ACDC, George and Henry. I loved how informational the descriptions were on their website of each cat, as well as the different pictures and videos. It really helped me get to “know” them before actually meeting them. It was love at first site. We adopted our boys separately but they, along with their brother Jake, get along wonderfully. I was very impressed with their screening process, to ensure that each cat was going into a safe, healthy, and loving forever home. I really appreciated everyone’s openness and patience – I had a lot of questions, because I wanted to make sure we were making the right choice. There was never any pressure to adopt, and everyone just bends over backwards to make your adoption as easy as possible. Both boys transitioned into our home very easily – they were each out of the “temporary room” in less than 24 hours! It just shows how well they were treated by ACDC until we found them. Without the ACDC, our precious boys would still be on the city streets. I am so thankful for their tireless efforts!!!

Ways to make it better...

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

recruit more volunteers, foster parents, and donors. This is such a wonderful organization and they would be able to do even MORE good with additional resources!

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

I have really appreciated the opportunities to speak with different foster parents about different cats we were interested in adopting. They are very honest and genuine. And they love and care for each pet as if it were their own.

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

wonderful! As a two-time adopter, the volunteers I have met are very friendly, caring, and patient. I am impressed with the amount of time they take to ensure each pet is going into a safe, healthy, and loving forever-home.

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

Rescue even more animals that are abandoned and abused in the Philly area!

Ways to make it better...

I can't think of anything that would have made my experiences better, truly!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

money and resources. Foster homes are few, and I'm sure donations are down due to the economy. If I didn't have to work I would volunteer so much more of my time to this organization!!!

We adopted our wonderful dog, Chief, from the Animal Coalition of Delaware County (ACDC) in 2008. The volunteers we encountered, from the person who processed our application to our dog's foster mom, were helpful, friendly, and willing to answer any questions we had. Our dog's foster mom even kept him for an additional two weeks when I found out I'd be out of town just after the adoption was finalized. We went on to become a foster family for cats through ACDC, and now I volunteer for them in a couple other capacities. The more I get involved with the organization the more obvious it is that everyone who works here goes above and beyond the call of duty. The animals are the top priority here, and it shows. Kudos are especially deserved since this is an all-foster operation! Please consider coming out to an outreach event to meet your next furever friend.

The Great!

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

watching my dog, Chief, grow up - he had an amazing foster mom at ACDC.

We adopted both of our cats from ACDC. One was 2007 and another in 2008. ACDC reviewed our application and checked our vet reference before we met with the foster parents. We met with multiple cats before deciding on the first cat we adopted. The foster parents were very good about us taking our time in choosing the right cat for us. The second time around, we knew what we wanted and they helped make the process very easy. When we adopted the cats they were spayed and up to date on vaccinations. We were very happy with the adoption process and how easily it all worked out. It was nice to know the animals we were adopting came from a foster home and not a shelter environment. It was much easier to determine personality and spend time with the animal before taking them home. At the adoption we were given copies of the cats medical records as well. Since adopting from ACDC we continue to support the organization.
