Most people would love to help animals… if they only knew how.
Your gift to HUMANE ACTION Pittsburgh will help us take on the most appalling animal issues of our time. Understanding that the best way to safeguard animals is to protect them from harm in the first place, HAP affects meaningful change through education, policy, and community action.
In doing so, HAP members have come to the aid of untold numbers of animals — in the circus, puppy mills, the zoo, in the wild, and on the farm. We don’t just help puppies and kittens, we work to protect ALL animals.
