Humane Animal Rescue - North's Adoption Process

1. Visit the Facility and Find a Pet

2. Meet the Pet

To adopt visit us at 1101 Western Ave, Pittsburgh PA 15233 during the Adoption Center Hours below.

Our adoption process is aimed at matching you, your family and your current pets with our animals for adoption. An adoption counselor (or volunteer) will introduce you to our animals in a private meeting room. We will share information about the animal's history and needs, behavior assessment and any volunteer / staff comments.

When you find the right pet for you and your family, the adoption counselor will assist you in completing the proper paperwork. This process includes signing an adoption contract, reviewing medical history and providing proper pet care information. This process takes approximately 30 minutes to complete.

What you will need in order to adopt:

A valid PA state ID with your current address.

If you rent, a copy of the lease stating they permit pets at the residence. Your landlord’s name and phone number should be listed on the lease.

All members of the household should meet the animal before adopting.

If you are interested in adopting a dog and have other dog(s) living in your household, it is required that all dogs meet each other at the shelter.

Certain animals require a completed application and a pre-adoption home visit.

Adoption fee is accepted in cash or credit/debit card. Checks, American Express and Discover are not accepted as payment.

PLEASE NOTE: We are not able to hold or accept a deposit for animals. Adoptions are approved for the first qualified home.

About Humane Animal Rescue - North

Open Door Information
There are thousands of animals who are given up every year. Sometimes people lose their jobs and can no longer afford to take care of their pets or have to move and cannot take their pets with them. Other times people experience life-changing events, such as a divorce or new baby, and have to surrender their furry friends. As more and more shelters become “limited access,” people have no other choice than to surrender their pets to an open-door shelter, who will never turn away a pet in need.

Because of the stigma that open-door shelters have, many people choose to make donations to limited access shelters, when, in-fact, it’s the open-door shelters who need the money the most. The Western PA Humane Society helps over 13,000 animals each and every year—which is a lot of mouths to feed and medications to administer. Please consider watching our short video and supporting our animals. Thank you.
