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:
Meet Benz! This handsome, young guy came to Animal Friends after his owner could no longer care for him. Benz is still working on his canine good manners, so he would benefit from a family who will continue to use positive reinforcement with him. He is also very playful and energetic so he is looking for an active family who will give him plenty of activities!


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!

She needs a quiet adult home to feel loved and safe in. Julie is used to living with seniors.

Aged to perfection, she is 10-years-old, and eligible for our special Golden Buddies program, which matches senior pets with senior humans. Call today to meet this very special little dog.
