CompAnimals began as a Senior Pet Rescue with the rescue of Leticia and Jezabel, two senior cats who were down on their luck when their owner died unexpectedly. Leticia & Jez were placed in a home together where they were pampered throughout their senior years.
CompAnimals has gone on to rescue hundreds of unwanted pets. We have expanded to help all animals in need but specialize in the “unadoptables”: cats & dogs missing hair, animals needing surgery prior to adoption, missing limbs or eyes, sick kittens or puppies that don’t have a chance at the shelter, any animal that just needs a little extra TLC before finding that forever home.
Of course we won’t turn away a perfectly healthy dog or cat who, through no fault of his own has found himself on death row. And we still have a soft spot for that graying muzzle…
CompAnimals places these animals in a foster home situation with a real-life family where they are socialized and evaluated for the home that best fits them. Many live with other dogs, cats and children.
Visit our Adoption Center!
You’ll find us at 1497 Flint Hill Rd. (on the corner of New London Rd. (Rt. 896) and Flint Hill Rd.) in Landenberg, PA across from Hill’s Auction. Visiting hours by appointment. Call ahead or email us if you are interested in seeing a particular animal, as not all of our dogs are at the center. We strongly interested adopters fill out an application first to start the conversation.
CompAnimals Pet Rescue is an all volunteer, “no kill” rescue. Our mission is to take in unwanted, abandoned or abused dogs, cats and other small pets; to place those we can in loving, permanent homes; and to provide a sanctuary for the animals whose age, health issues or temperament precludes them from adoption. Our dogs & cats are neutered, vaccinated and receive all necessary medical treatment beford being made available for adoption. Through our volunteers and outreach programs we educate the next generation about the importance of spay/neuter and giving a lifelong home to their pets. We hope to one day put ourselves out of business but until then we will continue to rescue regardless of breed, age or medical condition.
