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!

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!

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...

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.
