Barn Homes Needed for Cats
Some cats that come to us for a second chance do not adjust to living in a cage, especially for a long periods. They sometimes bite and scratch because they are scared, or unsocialized. Many can become social and friendly once they are in a cage-free environment. If you have a warm barn and are willing to feed and care for one of our independent cats, please call our “Cat Adoption Area” at 724-222-7387 ext.107. You will be saving a cat and most likely be getting a mouser.
We Need Doghouses
We try to stock up on dog houses to give to people who cannot afford them and more importantly to protect the dogs from the weather when there is no other place for them to go. There is an ongoing need for doghouses and we welcome donations. Please donate sturdy, waterproof doghouses to WAHS where we can put them to good use.
If you have visited us, you can see that our cages and dog runs are always full. Dedicated employees care for these dogs and cats 7 days a week. We receive no funding from the county and operate solely or private donations. Many generous people bring us food, cat litter, and supplies, but we desperately need monetary donations to meet monthly expenses.
One way you can help is to join our PATHS Program (Partners, Angels, Trustees, Helpers, Saviors) and pledge an amount to contribute each month.
We ask all dedicated animal lovers to take it upon themselves to assure that the basic needs at the shelter are able to be funded on a monthly basis. If we can be assured of a steady income for routine monthly expenses, we can maintain buildings and grounds with an other fundraisers.
Whether you join the PATHS Program or send a donation to help us continue to care for many unwanted pets at the Humane Society, the Board of Directors, employees, volunteers and our orphaned animals will be sincerely grateful for your thoughtfulness. All contributors will receive our newsletter which informs our friends of fundraising events, abuse investigations, and ongoing news about our homeless animals.Download Pledge Form
