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:
Jinx is a big bunny with an even bigger heart who came to Animal Friends with his bond mate, Poof, after their previous owner could no longer care for them. Jinx is always ready for human attention and some lazy cuddles. His ideal home would be a settled and calm environment where Jinx could relax and enjoy company. If Jinx sounds like a good fit for your home, come down to Animal Friends to meet him 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!
