TreeTops Animal Rescue is a 501c3 nonprofit animal adoption organization in southeastern PA dedicated to placing shelter animals into caring, permanent homes. We do not have a shelter to visit - our volunteers foster these animals in our homes, which allows us to give you an accurate description of each animal's needs and personality.
Because they are in foster homes, we require an approved application before we arrange a private visit. Please read our adoption info page then complete an application. We also hold public Meet & Greet events monthly, however because we are all volunteer, not all animals will be present, so please email a few days before an event if you're interested in meeting a specific animal.
URGENT- VOLUNTEERS and FOSTER FAMILIES NEEDED!!
We provide all food, supplies, and vetting- You provide love, safety and protection for a needy animal.
The number of animals being euthanized at shelters is staggering - one southern shelter we work with took in 4000 animals last year and were only able to save 1500! We try to help these shelters by getting out as many as possible so the world will get a chance to meet them, love them, and appreciate them. We need homes for all our animals till they find their forever homes (usually 2 weeks to 2 months) and the more foster homes we have, the more animals we can save. If you can't foster, you can help drive one leg of a transport helping animals get from a shelter to a rescue or new home, or keep an animal overnight on their trip to safety. Or you can help out at events, processing applications, or posting on our Facebook page. It is a wonderful way to give back to our community through volunteering and doesn't take much, just an open heart and a warm shelter for these fur babies to be saved. For information on fostering or volunteering click here and for an Application click here. Or contact Andrea at email@example.com if you would like to discuss fostering or volunteering. Leave a phone number and she will be happy to call you!

A POEM TO MY FOSTER DOG
By Diane Morgan
I am the bridge,
Between what was and what can be.
I am the pathway to a new life.
I am made of mush,
Because my heart melted when I saw you,
Matted and sore, limping, depressed
Lonely, unwanted, afraid to love.
For one little time you are mine.
I will feed you with my own hand.
I will love you with my whole heart.
I will make you whole.
I am made of steel.
Because when the time comes,
When you are well, and sleek,
when your eyes shine,
And your tail wags with joy
Then comes the hard part.
I will let you go-not without a tear,
But without a regret.
For you are safe forever--
A new dog needs me now.
Our mission is to rescue adoptable lost, abandoned, or surrendered animals; to supply needed care and medical attention including being spayed/neutered; to provide them with re-socialization in foster homes; and to place them in permanent adoptive homes where they will be loved and properly cared for.
At TreeTops Animal Rescue, we believe that all living creatures deserve to be treated with consideration and respect. All of our rescue animals will be treated as if they are family. All applicants, owners, and shelter personnel will be treated with common courtesy. And all volunteers and the staff of cooperating agencies or offices will be treated with full appreciation for their help.
TreeTops Animal Rescue is a participating Ambassador in the Rally to Rescue Program
