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:
Grace came to Animal Friends with a group of cats after their owner passed away. She is a shy cat who understandably has had good days and bad days since being admitted to our care. But, our staff and volunteers are working hard to help her feel more comfortable and have been rewarded with some wonderful progress! Grace would do best in a home with an experienced owner who has lots of tasty tuna treats on hand.


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:
Maggie is a cute Pug mix who needs a very patient adopter. It will take dedication too as she will require several visits to warm up to a potential adopter. Maggie becomes very attached and is protective of the staff she knows well.

She likes her walks with volunteers, but doesn’t like them petting her. Maggie likes her belly rubbed and is affectionate and loving once she trusts you.

She is not good with kids or cats.
