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 Pet Profile:
Sox is a playful 3-year-old Border Collie and Pit Bull Mix who would be a great fit for a family with kids of all ages! As his name suggests, Sox has pretty white paws that look great on his beautiful black fur. Although he isn’t a fan of cats or rabbits, he wouldn’t mind sharing a family with a canine sibling. Sox walks politely on a leash and would be happy to show you how nicely he can sit – especially if you have a yummy treat to share. He’s ready to go on some fun adventures with a new best friend, so stop by Animal Friends to see him!

If you can help, come to Animal Friends at 562 Camp Horne Road, Pittsburgh, Pa., 15237 or call 412-847-7000. For more information on how you can adopt any of the pets at Animal Friends, visit their website here!

Orphans of the Storm Pet Profile:
Smokie is a beautiful, friendly feline. She loves to be petted, even rolling over on her back with her paws out-stretched! Smokie also loves her toys! She does have some cat-titude, so she would do best in a home with adults and older children. For more info or to meet Smokie, please contact Orphans of the Storm in Kittanning.
