  • PACT cannot accept any Foster Animals with a history of destruction or aggression towards humans or animals in the program.
  • PACT cannot guarantee placement for accepted applications within our program, despite our best efforts.  Due to PACT’s nature as a volunteer organization, placement depends solely on the availability, skills, and willingness of our approved foster homes to accept a foster pet.

We reserve the right to request proof of any of the above requirements. If you have any problems or questions about the application, please check our FAQ section here, email us at info@pactforanimals.org, or call us at 610-581-4141.
