In April 2017, The Animal Rescue League Shelter & Wildlife Center and the Western Pennsylvania Humane Society merged to form Humane Animal Rescue, a cohesive organization that will provide enhanced services to domestic animals and wildlife of our region. 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.
