Cat Fosters Needed!

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Animal Coalition of Delaware County, Inc.


Foster volunteers provide socialization, training and care of rescued homeless pets to prepare them for their new beginnings with their forever family.

Foster families care for our pets until their forever home is found. ACDC maintains legal guardianship of all animals in foster care, and their medical costs are covered by ACDC. ACDC distributes any donated food, toys and general supplies to foster parents when available. Families are otherwise responsible for providing food, toys and general supplies and all the love and affection they can lavish on their foster pet. The more families that work with us, the more pets we can rescue.

Responsibilities of a Foster Parent:

  • Provide care and socialization to the animals in your care
  • Contact the foster coordinator or vet care coordinator when any possible concerns develop
  • Bring animals to and from the vet when scheduled, including for vaccinations, spaying/neutering
  • Bring your foster pet attend an outreach event
  • Bring the foster pet for the adoption at our adoption center.


  • Show genuine concern for the welfare of animals, consistent with the philosophy of ACDC.
  • Be extremely conscientious about monitoring the medical condition, energy level, and behavior of the animals in your care.
  • Be willing to ask questions or call with any possible concerns.
  • Be willing to separate foster animals from your own animals.
  • Have the ability to work independently and follow instructions/policies.
  • Be physically able to transport your foster animals and their supplies in a carrier to the vet, outreach events, and the like.
  • Have an area separate from your own pets where the foster pet can live while in your home and be willing to keep the foster pet separate from your own pets. This helps keep all pets in the home safe.
  • You must be 21 years of age to foster a pet.

We Believe We Provide a Unique Experience:

It begins with you submitting an application, then a phone interview, followed by a home visit. Once that’s complete, if we’re all in agreement that fostering is right for you, you will be assigned a pet to nurture, with the help of one of our fostering coordinators and our veterinary care coordinator will be available for questions you may have about your animal’s health. Come join’ll find a great support network available to help you with your fostering experience! Fostering saves lives!

About Animal Coalition of Delaware County, Inc.


3553 West Chester Pike, #144, Newtown Square, PA 19073, US

Mission Statement

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. We are also focused on educating the public regarding the necessity of spaying and neutering pets and encouraging the humane treatment of companion animals throughout Delaware County and the Main Line.


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, versus a cage like at a traditional shelter. 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. 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.

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.

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.
