Hello, my name is Nova and I’m looking for a home to call my very own. It’s pure luck and fate that I am able to have this chance to find a loving family. My momma was a stray cat living on the streets. She went to look for food one day and put my siblings and I in the tire well of a car. A Chevy Nova to be exact. Get it? Well cars move and this one took off down the road.  We finally stopped and my sister Pixie started crying at the top of her lungs. Well, it got the attention of some people nearby and the rest is history. All three of us are now staying in a foster home until our forever families are found.  I think I would say I’m the calmest out of my siblings. Don’t get me wrong, I love to run around, play, and act silly like every other kitten, but there are moments when I would rather just sit in a cozy dog bed( they are so much better than those little cat beds) and observe the world going on around me. Some of the antics my brother and sister get into are hilarious.  After a fun day of being a kitten and doing kitten things I like to curl up next to my foster mom and sleep feeling content. I’m told I have an old soul. I am great with dogs, cats, and children. I just love life and am grateful that I get a chance to be part of a family and not have to survive on the street. So what do you say? Can I come home with you?

About Animal Coalition of Delaware County, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

The Animal Coalition of Delaware County is a 501 (c) (3), non-profit, all-volunteer, charitable organization registered with the Pennsylvania Department of State that is dedicated to finding loving homes for adoptable, homeless pets. Our mission is to reduce stray and shelter animal populations in the Philadelphia region by finding permanent homes for adoptable dogs, cats, and rabbits. Underlying this mission is a strong commitment to educating the public about the importance of spaying, neutering, and the responsibilities of long-term pet ownership.

You can reach us any time, day or night, via e-mail or by phone (610-876-1479). Our hardworking group is all-volunteer and all-foster, which means that the dogs, cats, and rabbits in our care reside in the safe haven of a foster home until they are adopted. We get to know our foster pets very well so that we can match potential adopters and pets during our screening and interviewing process prior to adoption to ensure a loving bond that will last the pet’s lifetime. The Animal Coalition makes sure that each pet in our care has been examined by a veterinarian, received any necessary vaccinations or tests and is spayed or neutered (if old enough) prior to adoption, and microchipped.

Being all-volunteer also means that we have very little overhead, so the donations we collect go directly towards providing veterinary care and adoption promotion for our pets.

We ask that you be patient with us in responding to your emails, calls and faxes. We are an all-volunteer group and do what we do because we love animals. We also have full time jobs and families and many of us have foster pets in addition to our own, so we do our best to respond as quickly as possible.

We are not affiliated with any local, state or federal agency or any other SPCA or humane group. Our work is supported entirely by the generosity of the general public and the group members. Since we are a 501 (c) (3) organization, donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.

Our Adoption Process...


Caring for an animal costs money-we provide all food, bedding, litter, medical care, etc. Thus we do charge a fee for the adoption of our animals.

Our fees are:

$100 for a cat.
$250 for a dog.
$300 for a puppy.
$ 65 for a rabbit
$ 25 for a guinea pig

*Please note that all our animals are spayed or neutered, if old enough. We do charge a $50 refundable spaying/neutering deposit for puppies & kittens, which is in addition to the adoption fee. This deposit will be returned once you provide proof of spaying or neutering which is required under the adoption agreement.

Applying for adoption does not necessarily guarantee that you will be approved. We have requirements that all prospective "parents" must meet:

A drivers license or some form of photo identification with your current address;
Residency-do you own your home or do you rent it? If you own your home, please bring some proof of home ownership or you may fax it to us at 610-862-3938 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting              610-862-3938      end_of_the_skype_highlighting. This can be a copy of your deed, mortgage payment book or tax bill.
If you are not the owner of the property, then we need to check with the owners of the property to be sure that the animal will be allowed.
If you live in an apartment, we need to see a copy of your lease stating that you are allowed to have pets.
What other animals are currently living in the household, and what is their disposition? We need to be sure that the animal you are adopting will get along with the other "members" of your household.
We need your veterinarian’s name and contact information of not only your current animal(s) but your previous animals as well so we can obtain a reference. Are your existing animals up to date on vaccines and have they been spayed and neutered? We cannot consider you as prospective adopters if your existing animals do not meet these standards-PLUS it's a good idea for the health and well-being of your own animals as well.

Please also note that, once approved and once you've adopted an animal from us, we reserve the right to do a post-adoption home visitation to check on the well-being of the animal.
