Street Tails Animal Rescue (STAR) was founded by Lindsay Condefer and initially operated out of her pet store The Chic Petique. Since then STAR has grown into its own location and has been pulling dogs out of city shelters for over a decade.
STAR's mission is to help the homeless, and unwanted animals within the local, 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.
Please note: STAR is not a shelter and we do not take animals directly from the public. Our animals are pulled from shelters inside of the Philadelphia area.
