PAWSitively Pittsburgh: 150 Years of Humane Animal Rescue

May 19, 2024 - May 19, 2024 | 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Heinz History Center
1212 Smallman Street
Pittsburgh, PA 15222

Join the History Center to honor the historic impact the Humane Animal Rescue of Pittsburgh (HARP) has had on Western Pennsylvania over the last 150 years.

Animal lovers and paw-rents are invited on a historic walk (no leash required!) throughout the museum to learn about the many ways HARP has contributed to the well-being of local animals and our community.

Since 2019, the History Center’s Detre Library & Archives has preserved the rich history of the organization by collecting their archival materials and photographs. Dive deeper into these fascinating records during a special presentation that will shed light on HARP’s history and legacy.

Connect with expert trainers, wildlife rehabilitators, and veterinarian professionals to gain firsthand insight into your animal’s health and happiness. Explore local animal history with a paw-some scavenger hunt, meet service animals, and sit-in on interactive workshops during this special one-day pet-a-palooza.
