Action For Animals Humane Society was founded in 1983 to shelter and provide care for abused, abandoned and stray dogs and cats of Westmoreland County. We adopt animals into responsible homes and vigorously promote the spaying and neutering of all pets to eliminate the cruelty of animal overpopulation. We are a non-profit, non-government funded, no-kill shelter that keeps animals free from the threat of unwarranted euthanasia.
The shelter is open to the public! Adoption/Visiting Hours: Tuesday-Saturday, Noon-4pm. You are welcome to come to the shelter during visitor hours to see our animals. If you would like to visit with an animal, you will need to have a pre-approved adoption application.
Adoption applications can be completed in 2 ways:
1. Call us at 724-539-2544 and request to do an application over the phone before you visit.
2. Fill out an app when you come to the shelter. Please bring vet records of your current pets and proof of home ownership. If you’re a renter, we will need to contact your landlord.
Adoption applications are reviewed in 24 hrs - a staff member will contact you.
