Pennsylvania Animal Shelters

Pennsylvania Animal Shelters receive pets from:

  • stray animals
  • relatives when an owner has passed away
  • humane organizations and animal control agencies
  • owners who can no longer care for their pets

When animals are taken in, they rarely have a medical history. If there is one available that indicates medical aid or veterinary care has been given; this information is passed on to the new owner. The Animal Shelter cannot guarantee the health or temperament of an animal adopted from the Shelter.

In order to adopt from a Pennsylvania Animal Shelter you will need a Drivers License or photo ID and must be at least 18 years of age.

Please allow at least 30 minutes to visit the Shelter, view the animals and acquaint yourself with those who are available for adoption. If you do not find what you are looking for, a wish list is sometimes maintained at the front desk, so be sure to check with the receptionist.
