General Info
The Animal Rescue League of Western Pennsylvania, established in 1909, is engaged in various activities that include providing temporary shelter, food, and medical attention to neglected and injured animals, restoring lost animals to their owners and seeking new homes for them, fostering a caring attitude towards animals and providing a merciful end for terminally- ill pets. Open seven days a week, the ARL operates a clinic in Pittsburg and an animal-shelter in nearby Rosedale. The clinic, staffed by licensed veterinarians and animal care specialists and augmented by animal-handling volunteers, offers services for pets such as general surgery and spay-neutering at a low cost. Support for the ARL comes from membership, gifts and memorials.

I just want to thank Joe Tedesco and the wonderful staff at the east end humane society animal shelter.They were so wonderful, kind and helpful when I went to adopt Roomba a little black Pekingese last week. Just can't thank all of them enough.

Their vet clinic doesn't know what they're doing. I adopted a dog from there and wanted to take him to my vet to pick up his Heartgard medication. I called the Shelter's vet clinic and left messages 8 times before they called me back. Finally, the vet Emily called me back and I asked her to fax over his negative heartworm test. She never did. I called twice more asking them to fax it and did not get a response. Eventually, I went in and spoke with a manager who finally fixed the problem. This whole thing took 3 weeks. 3 weeks to fax a piece of paper is ridiculous.




dropped off 5 kittens that were living in the neighborhood and donated twice the recommended rate this is what i got:

a call back a couple days later saying that they were too wild to adopt and i would have to take them back furthermore they "might " also have to be quarantined due to a serious virus outbreak that kills cats. They never informed us that there was a deadly cat virus spreading at there location at the time of dropoff.

We have several cats and other peoples cats roam he neighborhood as well. A very difficult situation for me.

I even offered an extra 100 dollars if they could hold onto them until they were free and clear of the virus. i was denied, I had to take them back or be put down.

I went back to them before work and agreed to pick up the kittens the next day and quarantine them myself. That evening they posted on their facebook account that they would be closed on the day i was to arrive for pickup.

I arrived in the middle of the afternoon, even though they said they were closed to the public, just to make sure that nothing would happen to them. It was too late they had been put down because the person there had said i had 24 hours exactly and i had come back too late. no phone call nothing, even though i said i was coming back the next day.

I had taken care of those animals all summer making sure they had food, milk, water or anything they needed. I am absolutely furious! I have asked for all my donation money back. I will never make another donation there again.

about ARL

they are not considered a no kills shelter BUT I clarified this with a worker. They ABSOLUTELY AND ONLY put down an animal if there is no way for them to get the animal better. They do treat the animals and try to bring them back to health. They do NOT put down animals because there is not room. So its ok to bring your pets there to be adopted.




The rescue league is a large inter city shelter that provides comprehensive services for low cost

. They of course adopt animals,provide a low cost clinic for shot and spay neuter. great place to get your next dog
