We have temporarily paused our intake due to an unprecedented number of kittens, strays, and surrendered pets overwhelming our resources and other rescues in Western PA and across the country.

Please do everything in your power to keep your pet, your family member’s pet, the stray that turned up on your porch, or that unexpected litter of kittens. We can recommend low cost veterinary services in the area, point you towards other resources, and offer advice on how to handle the situation until room becomes available at a rescue.

If you have found a cat experiencing an urgent medical situation, we will try our best to help! If the cat is in crisis, AVETS and PVSEC both accept Humane Surrenders and will do their best to save the cat and place them with a shelter once recovered.
