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:
Mia is a sweet young Lionhead who is looking for a calm home to call her own. She came to Animal Friends from another rescue and is a shy girl who needs time to warm up to new people. She can become overwhelmed with too much activity and loud noises, so she would do best with adults or older children. With patience and love, you will see that beneath her shyness she is a rabbit who knows what she wants. One of Mia’s favorite activities is relaxing in boxes or cubbies of any kind and hanging out in the tunnels during our weekly BunRuns. If you are looking for a nice girl to share your quiet home, come meet with Mia today!

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!

Animal Protectors of Allegheny Valley Pet Profile:
This big guy is Boy! Boy is a 7-year-old Pit bull mix and was surrendered to Animal Protectors because his previous owner had some health issues and had to move. Boy walks very well on leash but does not seem to like most other dogs (or cats). This handsome guy loves to go for walks and play fetch in our play yards. When he gets excited he likes to prance and bounce around as if he’s lighter than air! Boy loves the time he spends with people and enjoys a good belly rub. Does he seem like the perfect Boy for you?
