Street Tails Animal Rescue began in 2001 as a one woman effort to literally save one dog at a time. Initially operating out of her pet store, The Chic Petique, founder Lindsay Condefer spent years pulling and adopting out one dog at a time. In 2010, with the help of friends and supporters, her dream to help even more dogs in need became a reality. The operation blossomed into its own location. Since then, the number of animals STAR has helped find loving homes has grown exponentially. Street Tails Animal Rescue (STAR) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to helping the homeless, unwanted and abandoned dogs in the Philadelphia area. Our goal is to pull local animals out of shelters and find them loving, forever homes. To us, rescue is about saving a life, and each animal’s life, no matter the cost, is worth saving. Since our animals often require extra care and support, covering the costs is our greatest challenge.
