Helping Pets & People Since 1874:
The mission of the Western Pennsylvania Humane Society is to provide the most comprehensive, compassionate and humane services to enhance the lives of companion animals for families and the community; to educate and to prevent the cruelty of all animals in the region we serve.
Ways To Give
Last year the Western Pennsylvania Humane Society sheltered over 12,000 homeless pets. When you donate your gift helps us care for the many pets in need that come to our door. Your support also helps us provide programs like pairing Veterans and First Responders with shelter pets, matching Senior Citizens with Senior Pets, Therapy Dog visits to hospices and other care facilities, and Humane Education classes that reach 27,000 children every year.
Your financial support has made fulfilling our mission possible since 1874.
