About Us

The Pet Adoption League is a no-kill non-profit animal shelter founded in 1991 to aid unwanted, neglected, and/or abandoned pets in Westmoreland and Fayette counties.

We spay/neuter, vaccinate, and micro-chip all of our dogs, as well as provide medical attention when needed. We provide them lots of love to restore their faith in human beings. 

Until new homes can be found PAL provides shelter, food, and veterinary care (including spaying and neutering) to more than 500 needy animals yearly, with No Time Limit on their length of stay at our shelter.

Despite our small operating budget we manage to care for, and to place hundreds of animals year after year.


Education about responsible pet guardianship is also a big part of our work. Special emphasis is given to the importance of spaying and neutering, and to the cruelty of chaining dogs to dog houses. We promote pets as valued family members, worthy of life-long protection and love, not merely as animals that people “own.” Our goal is to provide the kind of care that turns a frightened, hungry, deserted, or unwanted dog or cat into someone’s cherished friend for life.
