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.
Interested in adopting? Please review our Adoption Procedures:
Adoption/Visiting Hours: Tuesday-Saturday, Noon-4pm
You may visit our cats, kittens, dogs and puppies over the age of 4 months old during adoption hours prior to completing an adoption application. You must fill out an adoption application and be approved before visiting with puppies aged 4 months old and younger.
Applying for Adoption:
Fill out an adoption application in person at the shelter during adoption hours. We do not offer adoption applications online. If you live at a distance (1-1/2+ hours away), you can call us at 724-539-2544 to complete an adoption application by phone. Calls are returned within 48 hours.
Bring the following pertinent documents with you:
Pet Owners: Vet records of all your current pets.
Homeowners: Proof of home ownership – a property tax or mortgage document. Utility bills are not accepted.
Renters: Landlord’s phone number and copy of your lease. We must speak to your landlord to be considered for adoption.
Valid ID: You must be 21 years or older.
If you currently have dogs at your home, we require a meet and greet with the shelter dog you are interested in. You must have an approved adoption application before the meet and greet.
The adoption will be finalized after all required information is confirmed and your adoption application is approved.
We cannot guarantee the availability of the pet you are interested in and do not hold on any animals.
