They also have:        Safe Harbor Program:  Work with A Woman’s Place and the local (Bucks County) SPCA,  to house animals for an extended foster period so that women in desperate and abusive situations can make sure that their pets have a safe place to reside while they get back on their feet.          Supply Bank:  Provide food, medical supplies, crates and carriers to local and regional rescues and families in need, to increase the number of animal lives that can be saved.

Peace for Puppies – started by a 9 year old girl from the Philadelphia suburbs.  http://www.peaceforpuppies.org/                 Through fundraising events, towel and supply drives, and education, peace for puppies helps to support rescues and animal shelters so they can continue the tireless work they do to rescue, rehabilitate and save animals in need.  Contact them  to find out how you can help the dogs and cats while they wait for their forever homes. 

Finding Shelter , Norristown PA – In addition to accepting unwanted animals, this group will take an animal when the owner is terminally ill and needs to find a place where their pet will be safe and loved.  http://www.findingshelter.org/
