www.WpaHumane.org The Western Pa. Humane Society is a first class animal shelter in Pittsburgh’s North Side.It was founded in 1874. Their modern, new facility replaced their old shelter. They accept all domestic animals and never turn any pets or strays away. They operate an Open Door facility with no waiting lists or particular restrictions for accepting animals. All animals are spayed and neutered upon placement, microchipped and vet checked. All animals who are healthy and pass temperament testing have a chance at finding a new home. Adoption fees are $60.00 for adults and $75.00 for kittens and puppies, which are easier to find homes for. They accepted about 14,000 animals last year without any public funding.
They offer continuing vet care for members. A new sound system has been installed to provide the animals with relaxing and soothing music.This clean, modern facility has a cooperative, energetic and creative volunteer corp and provides educational awareness and outreach to the community -seniors and youth. On a recent June broadcast, they had their annual Pet Telethon which airs on WTAE (ABC affiliate) and aired segments throughout a 14 hr.
