Shelters, Assistance, Spay/Neuter Pittsburgh and Beyond

Lakota in his carrier after his exam.

This is an ever-changing list of resources for pet owners in Pittsburgh and beyond, drawn from my own needs and the needs of many who have asked questions. I’ve included low-cost spay and neuter programs for pets as well as TNR for community cats, after-hours emergency care, help with veterinary bills, pet-friendly rentals in Pittsburgh and across the US and links to shelters for adoption and other services. I will continue adding to it and keeping links updated.

This information is provided for reference only. I am not in any way promoting or endorsing any of the organizations or businesses linked here. This information changes periodically so I check my list quarterly to be certain all the links are still valid. I add new links as I hear of them.
