Have you ever considered fostering? Shelters are reaching out with many very pregnant dogs and moms with pups. We are faced with turning them away if we don’t have a foster home.

About Paws Across Pittsburgh

The Habit of Giving

Paws Across Pittsburgh is a 501(c)(3), foster based, non-profit animal rescue located in the Pittsburgh area. Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome homeless, abused and/or unwanted dogs and cats.

We are run solely by volunteers with the goal of providing vet care, socialization skills and nutritional needs while living in a loving foster home. All animals that enter into the rescue will receive appropriate vet care, spay/neuter, vaccinations and preventative treatments.

Our goal is to assure a loving, forever home for each one of our animals.

Our board members are Jackie Armour, Yvonne Ross, Wendy Kovacs, Sarah Medina, Vicki Thomas, Erin O'Toole, Jackie Abel-Stavropoulos, and Christy Sabatini.
