Are you looking to bring a pet into your home? Local animal shelters are a great place to find a furry companion. So, as part of Furry Tails, I’ll be doing an ongoing feature on adoptable pets from local animal shelters once a week. If you have room in your heart and are looking to bring a lovable ball of fur into your home, maybe one of these guys is meant to be a part of your family!


Animal Friends

Jackie may be living with a disability, but you would never know it! She is happy and playful, but most of all, gentle and sweet; and she can’t wait to find a home where she’ll get the love and care she deserves!

Animal Friends Pet Profile:
Meet Jackie. She’s a lovable and exuberant German Shepherd mix. Jackie has three legs, but that doesn’t slow her down one bit. After surviving a car accident, her right front leg had to be amputated, but she stays active and happy when she goes for a walk outside. She especially loves playing fetch with some of her toys. When she’s finished playing outside, she loves to relax on a couch to give her legs a rest. Her gentle demeanor makes her the perfect dog for all ages. If you want to learn more about Jackie, schedule a visit with an adoption counselor today.

If you can help, come to Animal Friends at 562 Camp Horne Road, Pittsburgh, Pa., 15237 or call 412-847-7002. For more information on how you can adopt any of the pets at Animal Friends, visit their website here!
