Adoptable pets featured weekly from Animal Friends and Orphans of the Storm!

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:
Rita Hayworth is part of a large group of rabbits known as our celebunnies who came to Animal Friends earlier this year. In fact, Rita is the mother of her own brood of bunnies who she gave birth to shortly after she arrived. She may be shy at first but is still a curious and social rabbit who loves affection. In fact, she will sit in your lap all day if you’ll let her! Now that Rita is an empty nester, she’s searching for a fresh start with her very own 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:
Orangie likes attention. He has been patiently waiting for his forever home for two years.

Orangie was saved on his scheduled euthanasia day at another shelter. He lived in a foster home before coming to Orphans.

Orangie gets along well with other cats and lived with a small dog. He is 3-years-old and looking forward to the best part of his life in a new home.

Orphans of the Storm Pet Profile:
Princess is a 3-year-old Spaniel-Beagle mix. She was abandoned by her owner at a vet’s office, then lived at a boarding kennel for a year.

Princess is very shy, but once she knows and trusts you, she is very loving and affectionate. She needs a quiet, adult home with a fenced-in yard.

Princess is good with other dogs. Her people will need to make several visits to complete her adoption so she can know them and feel comfortable going home with them.
