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:
Rory came to Animal Friends after he was rescued by our Humane Investigations Officers from a neglectful situation. He is a handsome, senior boy who is understandably nervous in new situations. But with the help of our staff and volunteers, Rory is slowly beginning to come out of his shell and show off his true personality. Despite his age, Rory is still very energetic and would benefit from a family with kids 13 years or older who can be patient with him as he settles into his new home.



Animal Friends Director of Communications Cody Hollerman says: “Before she was cleared for adoption, Lady underwent a physical exam with our shelter vet. They found a mass that they are removing to be sent out for testing – so Lady is actually spending a few extra days in a loving foster home while we await her test results. At that point, we’ll have a better idea of the outlook and Lady will either be staying in foster for the time being or will be cleared for adoption!”


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!
