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:
This beautiful girl is Nickel! While she can be shy at first, she warms up nicely to new friends as she learns to trust them. She is a calm and cuddly girl who just loves to be near people. This bright-eyed pup is curious and loves to learn new things. Nickel has wonderful manners and likes to go for rides in the car. Does she sound like the missing piece to your family?


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:
Friendly. Playful. Affectionate.


Orphans of the Storm Pet Profile:
Koda is a 1-1/2 year old Rottweiler mix. He is so funny, he loves to carry his food bowl around just to get your attention. He will make you laugh with his goofy personality! He sits and shakes. Loves treats!

Koda lived with older kids and is supposed to already be housebroken. Koda is good with other dogs. He is very strong.

We wish we had a better photo of Koda but he had a food bowl in his smirking mouth in most of the others we took!
