Welcome to Spay and Save!

Spay and Save, Inc. is a non-profit organization devoted to general animal welfare and education. Our network of volunteers strives to help good people adopt healthy pets. We’re not the largest animal rescue, and we’re okay with that! We form genuine relationships with our adopters and help them find the perfect additions to their families. We stay in touch with our adopters to ensure their pets are happy and healthy, and we help them find whatever assistance and care they might need.

There is no mandatory adoption fee with our organization, but donations in any amount are always welcome and appreciated. All donations made to Spay and Save, Inc. are 100% tax deductible. Every penny of your monetary donation goes directly to veterinary services as well as food and supplies for our foster pets awaiting their forever homes. 

Featured Pets

PINKY is a strikingly beautiful dilute calico with white bib and paws. She arrived with her son, Winston, from an Overbrook colony in Philadelphia. The colony feeder recognized how beautiful and extremely friendly she was. She will co-exist with other cats given time to adapt but prefers not to share her humans with other felines. We have yet to determine her reaction to dogs. Won’t you give this lovely kitty a forever home so that she will never be on the streets again?

Please apply ONLY if you can commit to this pet's 10-15 year lifetime.

Primary Image


Originally a native of Strawberry Mansion cat colony in North Philly neighborhood before relocating with her siblings, mom and grandmother to Spay and Save foster care. She is spunky with her people, loves her scratchers, enjoys her crinkle tunnel and sleeping box. She would be a great family member for an individual/family who desire to have. She prefers to be an only cat, but would be willing to accept a cat-mate, if the cat-mate respected Panda’s space and her superior intellect.

Manners: She likes pets and wants to be around her family but also is independent. She is very content inside where there is food, people, warmth, comfort and safety where she is loved. Panda is a confident cat and likes to groom her people in exchange for pets. No dogs experience. She would be the princess of her castle for sure and likes to share your bed as hers.

Special attributes: Super soft fur. Extra toes, making her a polydactyl feline.

Ruby Red

This is Ruby and she has been enjoying life in the suburbs outside of Philly for the past month, where she has put on weight, had her vaccines, and has been working on her obedience commands. So far, she has mastered "sit" and "down" and is now working on "touch"! She will be getting spayed within the next few weeks and now all she needs is you!

Ruby is around 2-3 years old, 60+ lbs (has gained weight since her last vet visit), and was brought to me as a stray who wandered into a professor's house. She has likely had a few litters of puppies, but is definitely still learning how to be a puppy herself! She has showed us that she can live with cats (currently resides with three) and has displayed signs that she would enjoy the company of other dogs with proper introductions!

She is truly the sweetest, kindest, most loving little lady with a lot of energy! Some of her favorite things include running and playing outside in the yard before coming back inside to snuggle up and chew on her toys. She is happy in her crate so far and is house-trained. She needs some work on her leash manners, but is very treat-motivated and is making progress every day! Any children in the home would need to be a "sturdy" age and understand how to interact with dogs as she is a strong girl with a lot of love to give.

If you are interested or have questions, please reach out to me! 610-952-3423

Spotlight on Volunteers

Araceli Wakil

Araceli Wakil took over as Exton Coordinator for Spay and Save in January 2010, for then coordinator, Morag Steskal. She had big shoes to fill and boy, did she fill them! Araceli has worked tirelessly to create a seamless and meticulously run adoption location. She has created a friendly and inviting atmosphere for volunteers and adoption applicants alike, and the adoptions accomplished at the Exton location are ongoing and steady. Araceli oversees cage maintenance scheduling, sets up for adoption events and returns to clean up, processes adoption applications, transports and fosters short term. Besides working two jobs, she creates a loving home life with her husband, Dan, and still manages to find time for Spay and Save. Thanks and hugs to Araceli!


Sarah Sikora

Sarah Sikora and daughter, Sheridan, joined Spay and Save in 2001 (Sheridan was a first grader!). Sarah has continued her passion for saving all kinds of animals (bearded dragons and ferrets to name a few) far beyond that time. Managing Critter Care Veterinary Practice (owned by Dr. Lori Portugal who serves on our Board), Sarah acts as Veterinary Liaison and shares her knowledge and experience with our organization selflessly. Together with her husband, Bob, Sarah organizes fundraisers, attends adoption events and offers veterinary care to hundreds of abandoned and homeless pets that come through her doors. The community of Coatesville owes a great debt to this trailblazer who shares so much of her life with homeless pets. Spay and Save thanks her!
