Welcome to Tails Of The Free!

Saving the world one animal at a time.

The adoption process

The adoption process is pretty simple. Fill out an app and our adoption screeners will go to work. Typically within 48 hours or so you'll hear back. 

You can apply in general or for a specific animal. If you are interested in an animal that's in foster care we require you have an application submitted before meeting the animal.

How you can help

There are many ways that you can help. We are always in need of donations, volunteers and foster homes. Even something as simple as an overnight foster for a cat on the rare occasion the stores are closed. It all helps.

Pet Valu

We showcase our cats in various Pet Valu stores around Chester County Pa. Pet Valu has been wonderful to us with food, litter, supplies and even monetary donations. We would simply not exist today if it wasn't for their help and support. 

Their stores are staffed by experts and all their sales associates go through extensive training to best serve all the pet parents out there. They are much more than a simple box store. If you're out, please stop by and check them out. Their support for the rescue world is amazing and anything you can do to support them will help them support all the rescues they partner with.

The Paw Project

The Paw Project's mission is to educate the public about the painful and crippling effects of feline declawing, to promote animal welfare through the abolition of the practice of declaw surgery, and to rehabilitate cats that have been declawed.

Many people, including animal lovers, do not realize that declawing is a surgical procedure in which the animal's toes are amputated at the last joint. A portion of the bone, not just the nail, is removed.



One of the hurtles with our Seniors for Seniors program is that some seniors don't drive. That makes pet ownership difficult as simple tasks like getting food and litter become a bigger problem. Enter Chewy.com and their delivery service. 

It's not just for home bound seniors, anyone can take advantage of the program. With today's hectic life wouldn't it help out if your normal pet supplies simply showed up at your doorstep?
