Your Sponsorship Helps Animals in Need

Provide food, shelter, and medical care to homeless domestic animals in our care. You can even choose to be a monthly sponsor!

Each sponsorship includes a personalized email with an example of the animal you’ve chosen to sponsor (please specify during donation). Sponsorships of $50 per month (or more), or one time sponsorship of $250 or more include a personalized tour with an opportunity to see your sponsorship in action!


Sponsor a Shelter Animal

Did you know that the first week of care for animals in our shelters can cost us $250.00 or more? Did you also know that we receive over 12,000 animals every single year? We often accept animals that have been turned away from other shelters because their care would be too costly or complicated. Although this puts a financial burden on Humane Animal Rescue, the effort is worth it. You can help us provide the medical care, food, and shelter these animals need while they wait for their forever home.

Sponsor a Pittsburgh Pittie

At Humane Animal Rescue, about 60% of our dogs are pit bull type mixes. Sadly, these precious pooches are turned away from other shelters because they have a bad reputation. HAR is proud of our pitties and we know they can make great pets – just like any breed of dog! You can sponsor a pitbull from intake to adoption for $300. This will provide the pitbull with a spay/neuter, proper vaccines, microchip, food, enrichment, and some basic training while they’re waiting for the new forever home.

Sponsor a Community Cat

A community cat is primarily wild-raised or has adapted to community life. This is not a stray cat. A stray cat is defined as someone’s pet who has become lost, or who has been abandoned. Humane Animal Rescue offers Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) services at our Northside and East End clinics. TNR is the method of humanely trapping community cats, having them spayed or neutered and vaccinated against rabies, and then returning them to their colony to live out their lives. TNR has been shown to be the least costly and the most humane, efficient way of stabilizing community cat populations. Cover the cost of one community cat’s Trap, Neuter, and Return for $75.
