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:
Yoda came to Animal Friends on May the Fourth! She was rescued by our Humane Society Police Officers from a neglectful situation and since she arrived, Yoda has been the most fun-loving gal we know. She is a young pup who would benefit from a family who will be patient and dedicated to positive reinforcement training. Yoda is an eager student who is excited to learn and exercise her mind and body in fun and challenging ways. She may even be open to having a canine sibling (as long as proper introductions are made first!) who will help teach her good puppy manners and be a good play companion for her.


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:
Sparrow is an energetic 1-year-old Jack Russell Terrier mix.

She loves to be with you but is shy at first, and needs time to get to know new people.

Sparrow needs a Jack Russell Terrier experienced adopter. She is possessive with her food and toys with other animals.

Sparrow can not be loose outside. She needs a fenced-in yard and supervision as she also is a climber, and climbs out very quickly. She can also go over baby gate.

If you would like to add some positive energy to your life, contact us about Sparrow.
