Our humanity emboldens our compassion toward all living creatures. Humane Animal Rescue of Pittsburgh (HARP) is one of Pennsylvania’s largest non-profit organizations dedicated to the welfare of animals, pet owners and the community. HARP operates two low-cost, high quality veterinary medical centers. In an average year, over 6,500 animals are treated and more than 7,000 spay and neuter surgeries are performed in these facilities. In addition to caring for domestic animals, the organization remains committed to indigenous species. The Wildlife Rehabilitation Center is a fully licensed wildlife facility that specializes in caring for sick, injured and orphaned wildlife. Annually more than 4,000 injured wildlife of over 100 unique species are admitted and treated by the Center. Among them are more than 2,300 mammals, 1,700 birds and over 50 reptiles.
Humane Animal Rescue of Pittsburgh’s adoption team works to match people with an adoptable animal. To assist with making a match, an adoption counselor will learn more about the adopter and share information about the animals. Our adoptions are first come, first serve and we are unable to place a hold on specific animals. Don’t fret, we always have new animals coming in that could be your purr-fect match! We are open to process adoptions on a walk-in basis Tuesday through Friday. Our doors open at 1 p.m. and the last adoption will be finished by 6:30 p.m. On weekends, we are still operating by appointment only from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. If you would like to schedule an appointment, please call us at 412-345-7300 ext. 215 or email us at [email protected].
