Care they need. Love they deserve.
The Animal Rescue League and the Western Pennsylvania Humane Society have merged to form Humane Animal Rescue, a new organization that will provide enhanced services to domestic animals and wildlife of our region. Humane Animal Rescue is now one of the largest animal welfare organizations in Pennsylvania, and brings greater efficiency in animal care processes, staff training, and cutting-edge practices to one organization. Our philosophy, compassion, and combined resources will better serve our community through a multifaceted and innovative approach. We will provide all aspects of care to abandoned, neglected, and injured animals; reunite lost pets with their caregivers or seek new families for them; educate the community on humane care and interactions with all animals with the goal of reducing pet overpopulation and negative relationships with native wildlife; reinforce a standard of living for animals and prevent cruelty; and provide assistance and medical care to injured, orphaned, or ill native Pennsylvania wildlife with a goal of returning them to their natural habitat. Our open door policy ensures that no animal is ever refused shelter.
