To join Team Animal Friends, follow the instructions on the registration page. Be sure to choose Animal Friends when you reach the section of the registration form titled “Charity Runners Run for Free.”

For more than 75 years, Animal Friends has been pounding the pavement and setting the pace for humane programming in the Pittsburgh region. Right out of the gate, we served as a humble matchmaking service for homeless pets. Today, we have evolved into a full-service animal resource community.

Year after year, we continue to establish our personal best by providing shelter, care and placement for more than 2,600 homeless pets annually – just like we did for Bubba, Trouble and Brandy. And, we’re proud to offer our nationally recognized programs that include aggressive spay/neuter services, low-cost vaccines, humane education, behavior classes, pet therapy and so much more!

Bubba: Adopted June 4, 2019

Trouble: Adopted March 25, 2019

Brandy: Adopted June 29, 2019
