Diane’s Pet Supplies & Adoption Center Joins Forces with Animal House Project

Animal House Project

POTTSTOWN, PA — The Animal House Project has announced the integration of Diane’s Pet Supplies & Adoption Center into its mission. This merger brings together two of Pennsylvania’s most dedicated animal welfare organizations and promises to enhance their reach and effectiveness in serving animals and families in need.

Founded in 1989 by animal welfare advocate Diane Dietch, Diane’s Pet Supplies & Adoption Center has been a cornerstone of the North Coventry community for over three decades. The center, which predates e-commerce giants like Amazon and Chewy, as well as retail chains such as PetSmart and Petco, has placed thousands of dogs, cats, bunnies, and other small critters into loving homes across Eastern Pennsylvania.

The Animal House Project, established in Philadelphia in 2007, was founded in response to the growing issue of local animals being surrendered due to families facing financial hardships. In 2010, they launched the Chester County Pet Food Pantry, the first of its kind in Pennsylvania, providing donated pet food and services to financially struggling families, thereby helping keep pets at home and out of shelters.

“We are excited about the possibilities that this union brings,” says MaryBeth Yannessa, Board President of Animal House Project. “By joining forces, we can expand our reach and effectiveness in serving animals and families in need. Together, we will continue to make a meaningful difference in our communities.”

As part of the integration process, Diane’s Pet Supplies & Adoption Center will operate under the umbrella of Animal House Project. Existing staff, programs, and services will remain in place, ensuring a seamless transition for clients, volunteers, and supporters.

This strategic collaboration is set to amplify the impact of both organizations in Eastern Pennsylvania, Texas, and beyond. With shared values and a common vision for animal welfare, the union of Diane’s Pet Supplies & Adoption Center and Animal House Project is a significant step forward in their mission to improve the lives of animals and pet owners.
