Tammy is a playful 3 year old pittie mix who came in as a stray. With her sweet face and friendly personality, she quickly made a lot of friends among the volunteers and staff. Tammy rides well in the car, loves to play, and gives lots of kisses. She responds to ‘sit’ and walks decently on leash. She gets along well with other dogs and just loves people. Tammy recently had the honor of appearing on the Pittsburgh Today Live show on KDKA during a broadcast about an ARL fundraiser event. She was totally at ease in front of the camera, happily chewing on her stuffed toy. She also made a special appearance at the recent Mutters Day Canine Fashion show held at the Priory. Here she calmly mingled around the crowd of people, greeted the other doggies, and politely posed for her photos. We’re hoping that these recent public appearances will help Tammy get the forever home she deserves. Given how affectionate and friendly she is, we’re surprised she hasn’t been adopted already. For more information about Tammy, please contact her volunteer friend Beth at firstname.lastname@example.org or call an Adoption Counselor at 412-345-7300 x215.
Have you ever seen chocolate kittens? Well we’ve got a few! They still need to be spayed/neutered, but we expect them to be available early next week. Call our Cat Adoption Center at 412-345-7300 x332 for details.
DOG DAYS OF SUMMER: Hungry (for a chew toy)? Why wait…to adopt Snickers? This happy, playful Pittie mix is about one year old and was abandoned by his owner in the beginning of March. Snickers is super affectionate and actually thinks he’s a big lap dog! He also loves belly rubs! When he’s not taking over your lap or having his belly rubbed, he loves to chase balls and play with toys, as you can tell from his photo. This good boy does show signs of being house-trained and, after a recent day outing with a volunteer, we’ve gotten a better idea of how he would behave out in the world. He got to go to Hartwood Acres for a long walk and did very well. He does pull a bit on leash but that’s pretty normal for young dogs like Snickers. He was very polite when passing other people and dogs. When he got back to the volunteer’s house, he quickly made himself at home on her lap and took a nap! Snickers definitely likes to snuggle! We think he’ll make a great companion for some lucky person or family, but he’s just waiting to meet them! Come down and see for yourself or contact his volunteer friend Barb at email@example.com for more information about Snickers. You can also call our Adoptions Department at 412-345-7300 x215.
