Pittsburgh’s three major animal shelters are uniting to save pets caught in the middle of a licensing suspension at a McKees Rocks animal control facility, according to a news release.
Animal Friends, the Animal Rescue League and the Western PA Humane Society are all at capacity with dogs as a result of the recent state shutdown of the Triangle Pet Control Services.
The shelters are asking for immediate help from the public. All three are running an adoption special called “$30@3,” meaning any dog over the age of 2 years is available for just a $30 donation—at all three shelters.
All adoptions will be thoroughly screened to ensure the right matches, according to a news release.
Thirty-four dogs have been surrendered to the Humane Society’s North Shore shelter in the past three days.
David Janusek, executive director at WPHS, said about 15 dogs were adopted out in the same time period.
“We are very full,” Janusek said in a news release. “We need the dog lovers of Western PA Humane Society to step up and help with adopting, fostering, and donating—food, supplies, or funds—to care for these many animals.”
