We are an all-volunteer organization dedicated to improving the livelihood of domestic animals. We function as a group of foster homes based out of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. We aim to provide animals a comfortable home environment as they await their forever families. We pride ourselves on helping animals become well-adjusted, healthy as can be, and finding the family best-suited to each and every creature that crosses our path. Adoption fees cover some of the costs of medical care, food, toys, leashes, collars, microchips, etc. The rest of our funding is provided by generous donations and our own personal income. We cannot keep our doors open without donations large and small! We are inspected regularly by the local dog warden and licensed by the PA Department of Agriculture to ensure safe, sanitary, and humane living conditions. We are also a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations; all donations are tax-deductible!
Step 1 - Is your whole family ready for a new addition? Check in before you apply. Also, if you rent, please ensure that your lease permits pets and check additional requirements such as pet rent or renter's insurance. Find a good vet and a reliable placement for your pet if you travel. Step 2 - Potential adopters are required to complete a digital application. Please be sure to have current vet records readily available. Complete the application with as much detail as you can. Step 3 - Once your application is submitted, it will be review within 72 business hours. If you have not heard back from us, you can always email to confirm that your application was received! Step 4 - Before you can bring your new companion home, we will help you arrange a meet and greet with the pet and their foster family. The foster family is a wealth of knowledge about the pet and can help guide you to the perfect match! This is when you will pay your adoption fee and sign the contract as well. Step 5 - Once you bring your new friend home, expect an adjustment period of a few days to a few weeks depending on the animal. Please remember that adopted animals will require training and patience while they adjust their new home. We are happy to offer tips and tricks, as well as help you find a wonderful trainer in your area.
