PAC & the COVID-19 virus

Thanks to a tremendous outpouring of support, the majority of the homeless pets in our shelter have been transferred into foster homes during this crisis. Our Center is closed for onsite adoptions at this time, but we’re ready to help you find your forever pet – at a distance! You can view most of our adoptable dogs here and cats through this link. Once you see a pet you like, follow the instructions in his/her bio to schedule a meeting. Puppies & kittens will be posted exclusively on our Facebook page.

Veterinary services remain open for essential care. Our Wellness Clinic is operating curbside; spay/neuter and other non-essential surgeries will be suspended until further notice. To schedule an essential Wellness Clinic or surgical appointment, call 610-566-1370 x 217 or text 610-566-1370.

Physical items from our Wish List may be dropped off between 9AM-4PM Monday-Sunday. Drop off location: Drive left around the Adoption Center; against the side of the building, to the right, you will see a standalone outdoor kennel. This kennel is designated for incoming donations.

We urge pet owners to have a plan in place for your beloved companion animals in the wake of COVID-19. Plan for every pawsibility and talk directly with those people so they’re prepared in case they’re called to action. With your whole family on board and a plan in place, you’ll feel better about your pet’s safety knowing they’re in good hands no matter what challenges may arise.

We will continue to do what we do best – save lives. What we do isn’t possible without your support. Please consider supporting our efforts.

Looking for more ways to help from home? We have two that let you help homeless pets while treating yourself! Take part in our Sit. Stay. At Home Online Auction and be sure to collect your Shrimp Pup Limited Edition Merchandise (available in 8 different shirt styles & colors, and as a mug!) to benefit our COVID-19 relief efforts – all from the comforts of your own home!

Thank you for your support during this challenging time!
