Raising cash, serving vittles to help ChesCo pets

A Chester County pet rescue wants animal lovers to put their money where their mouths are.

Pet Adoption and Lifecare Society (PALS) has opened a restaurant in Tredyffrin to raise money for its rescue services, the Daily Local reports.

The Black Cat Cafe, at 40 Berkeley Rd., serves up homemade soups, baked goods and quiches among other food items, and uses the proceeds to fund the rescue.

The BYOB cafe has vegetarian and vegan items on the menu too.

Last year PALS found homes for 1,000 unwanted animals. Organizers say they hope the cafe will help them double that number next year.

On Sundays diners can meet dogs and cats that are available for adoption.
