About Street Tails Animal Rescue
About Our Rescue Group...
Street Tails Animal Rescue (STAR) began in 2001, as founder Lindsay Condefer's one-woman effort to literally save one dog at a time. Initially operating out of her pet store, the operation blossomed into its own location in 2011 with the help of friends and supporters. Since then, the number of animals STAR has helped place into loving, forever homes for has grown exponentially.
STAR's mission is to help the homeless and unwanted animals, within the Philadelphia area, by helping them receive proper medical attention, educating the public on the importance of spaying and neutering, and by placing these animals in suitable, compatible, and most of all, loving homes.
STAR prides itself on taking in homeless animals that are often "overlooked." These are the animals that usually need extensive medical attention, so they are thought of as "unadoptable" or "not worth the effort." To us, rescue is about saving a life, and these are the animals that need it most.

Our Adoption Process...
Our adoption donation varies from $295-$500 for dogs, and $75-$100 for cats – depending on breed, age, medical condition, and behavior resources that have been put into the individual animal. Fees cover all of the pet's medical, boarding, and food costs while they live with us. All pets are spayed/neutered prior to adoption, are up to date on all shots, heartworm tested, and microchipped.
To adopt from STAR you must:
- Be at least 21 years old; with a valid photo ID
- Own your home or have consent from your landlord
- Be able to provide a safe, loving, and stable home environment for the duration of the animals life
Applications are processed on a first come/best fit basis and generally take 1-2 business days for processing. To prevent delays please notify your veterinarian, references, and landlord (if applicable) that a staff member will be reaching out to them. STAR uses the information provided to help us determine the best available home for the animal and to find a pet that is compatible with your lifestyle. Thank you for choosing adoption!
