Our Story

Street Tails Animal Rescue (STAR) began in 2001 as a humble one-woman effort led by Lindsay Condefer. Lindsay's mission was clear: to save one dog at a time. From her pet store, The Chic Petique, Lindsay poured her heart and soul into rescuing dogs and finding them loving homes.

In 2010, with the steadfast support of friends, supporters, and a dedicated board of directors, Lindsay's vision expanded. Street Tails Animal Rescue transitioned to its own dedicated location, a testament to its commitment to making a difference in the lives of homeless and abandoned dogs in the Philadelphia area.

Our Unique Approach

What sets Street Tails Animal Rescue apart is our distinctive approach, powered by just two full-time staff members. While many larger organizations boast extensive teams, our small but mighty team oversees every aspect of our rescue operation. From fundraising and social media outreach to the hands-on care of each and every dog that enters our doors, our dedicated staff ensures that every animal receives the attention, love, and support they need to thrive.

Our Mission

At Street Tails Animal Rescue, our mission is unwavering: to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome dogs in need. We are committed to pulling local animals out of shelters and providing them with the care and love they deserve. Each life we save reinforces our belief that every animal, regardless of their background, deserves the chance for a brighter future.

Our mission is made possible by the dedication of our two full-time staff members, our passionate volunteers, and the guidance of our committed board of directors. Together, we work tirelessly to ensure that every dog that comes through our doors receives the care, attention, and support they need to thrive.

Our Impact

Since our inception, Street Tails Animal Rescue has made a significant impact in the lives of countless animals and families. With the support of our community, we have been able to exponentially increase the number of animals we rescue and rehome each year. Our success stories are a testament to the power of compassion and the difference that can be made when we come together to help those in need.

As we look to the future, we remain committed to our mission of saving lives and making a difference in the lives of animals in our community. We invite you to join us in our efforts and become a part of our mission to ensure that every dog knows they are wanted and loved.
