Chief is at the Animal Rescue League of Western Pennsylvania, and he needs a home!
Chief is a gorgeous dog who was surrendered to the Animal Rescue League by his family because they were moving and couldn't take him along. This 5-year-old German Shepherd mix is housebroken and knows the come, paw and sit commands. Chief was good with the sibling dogs he lived with, but needs time to warm up to people because he gets frightened. According to the shelter, he is a very smart dog with an even temperament. For more information about Chief, contact his volunteer friend Cheryl at firstname.lastname@example.org. Chief's adoption fee is $115.

Maggie is extremely sweet, enjoys her chew toys and seems to like other dogs. Adopt her today at the Animal Rescue League of Pittsburgh.
This pretty 3-year-old girl is Maggie. Her owners surrendered Maggie to the Animal Rescue League of Pittsburgh after two years because she didn't quite feel comfortable with the small children in the home. Nevertheless, this pointer-mix is extremely sweet, enjoys her Kong chew toy very much and seems to like other dogs, too. Maggie was also crate-trained and knows sit, stay, down and lay. However, she's not fond of felines, so a cat-free home would be ideal. She’s also is a fan of going outside when it rains. Based on her behavior in her previous home, Maggie should live in an adult only home or a home with older children. It does take her time to warm up to strangers, but loves people once she feels safe. We think she'll love curling up …

National Dog Day is Sunday, Aug. 26. What will you do to celebrate man's best friend?
You may celebrate man's best friend on the regular. Do you walk your pup through Peters Township? Or perhaps down the Montour Trail making a pit stop at The Pooch Pitt? If not, Sunday's the day to do so! Aug. 26 is National Dog Day. That's the day animal advocate Colleen Paige has designated for honoring all those dogs who bring in the paper, and all those dogs who are neglected. Not to be confused with National Mutt Day (Dec. 2), National Puppy Day (March 23) or National Pet Day (April 11), each of the 19 national and international pet days founded by Paige are all designed with one thing in mind: to draw attention to the need for pet rescue. Paige, author, pet behaviorist and self-proclaimed "pet celebrity lifestyle expert" founded the …

Say hello to beautiful Flo! She has the prettiest marking on her face and as you can see from her photos, she's so expressive. She came to the Animal Rescue League in Pittsburgh as a stray and they believe that she is a Shepherd and American Pit Bull Terrier mix. Since she's been here, they've gotten to know and love her! It's hard to believe that someone would give her up. She is a wonderful girl who is very affectionate and gentle. She walks wonderfully on a leash and she seems very smart and eager to please. She's already learned the "sit" command and she shows signs of being house-trained. She also has a friendly interest in the other dogs at the shelter, so she could possibly go to a home with other animals. Flo would be an easy and …

Bentley arrived at the shelter with badly matted fur. She was cleaned up, is velvety soft and needs a loving home.
This small, black kitty—just 1 year and 6 months old—is looking for a home. Bentley makes the Animal Rescue League staff giggle, and prefers to be told how velvety soft and warm she is. She came to the shelter with badly matted fur, so she was sedated and shaved so that her coat will grow back beautiful and shiny, and clean. Bentley is a medium-haired kitty with a beautiful plume tail. She is affectionate and playful, but just a little shy in the shelter when she meets new people. So if you visit Bentley, give her a little time to trust you and you will be rewarded. Any questions, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
