Programs & Services

Action For Animals Humane Society provides Westmoreland County with a full range of programs and services designed to improve the quality of animals' lives, match people and pets, help control pet overpopulation and prevent animal cruelty/neglect.

AFA rescues and finds homes for around 1,000 animals every year. We take great care to ensure these wonderful animals are adopted into responsible homes. Learn more about our Adoption Program

Low Cost Spay/Neuter
To help stop the tragedy of pet overpopulation, we spay or neuter all the animals at our shelter. We also offer low cost spay/neuter services to low income families. Learn more about Low Cost Spay/Neuter Services

Animal Abuse/Neglect
Cruelty and neglect of animals is not only inhumane, it is illegal. We work with many area law enforcement agencies and other animal welfare organizations to make sure all cruelty and neglect reports are investigated and the laws are being enforced. Learn more about Animal Abuse/Neglect

Lost and Found
AFA has reunited many lost and found pets with their owners throughout the County. We also provide information on what you can do to help find your lost or found pet. Learn more about Lost and Found Pets

Our education programs bring the message of compassion, kindness and safety to hundreds of children and adults each year, through classroom visits, youth group programs, or civic group presentations. For more information, please call 724-539-2544 or send an e-mail to
