Animal and Pet Information

Rags 2 Riches Animal Rescue is a non-profit, all volunteer no kill organization that has been created to bridge the need of placing animals in need of a home with owners looking for a pet to be given a lifelong loving home.  Based in Delaware County Pennsylvania we pride ourselves in serving the community by not only helping with animals in need but educating the public on proper care and treatment of animals.  
Dogs and cats that are abused, neglected, or just simply in need of a permanent home, are cared for, vetted and given all age- appropriate vaccines. Once cleared for placement they are matched up with their “fur ever” home to live the fullest happiest life possible.  All placement homes are thoroughly interviewed and inspected to make sure the best possible home for our animals is obtained
If you suspect that an animal is suffering from abuse or neglect in Delaware or Chester Counties, call  610-566-1370 x 214 to report the situation.

Per Ron Riggle:
Your information will always remain confidential however we do need contact information from the complainant in case we have further questions or can’t find the location. Please note, every single complaint is investigated however due to the volume of calls the complainant will only be contacted if more information is needed.
More than 600 claims of animal cruelty, abuse and neglect. Most complaints require further investigation. Their powers are granted by the State of Pennsylvania and uphold the state’s animal cruelty laws, contained in section 5511 of the Crimes Code, which states:

“Cruelty to Animals: A person commits an offense if he wantonly or cruelly illtreats, overloads, beats, otherwise abuses any animal, or neglects any animal as to which he has a duty of care, whether belonging to himself or otherwise, or abandons and animal, or deprives any animal of necessary sustenance, drink, shelter, or veterinary care, or access to clean and sanitary shelter which will protect the animal against inclement weather and preserve the animal’s body heat and keep it dry.”
