ARL & WPHS Merge to Form Humane Animal Rescue

PITTSBURGH – The Animal Rescue League Shelter & Wildlife Center and Western PA Humane Society, two organizations each with a long history of helping animals throughout the community have merged to form Humane Animal Rescue.

Humane Animal Rescue was created by selecting the words that tell the stories of our former namesakes, while also describing who we are and what we do. “Humane” describes our continued Open Door policy and our desire to restore all animals to full health. “Animal Rescue” details our goal of helping animals in need, both domestic and wild. The Humane Animal Rescue logo reflects the animals we serve: one tail representing wildlife and the other tail representing domestic animals. Humane is what we believe in. Animal Rescue is what we do.
Humane Animal Rescue will now operate out of three different locations: 1101 Western Avenue, located in the Northside; 6926 Hamilton Avenue, located in the East End; and the Wildlife Center, located in Verona.

Mother’s Day at Portraits of Animals

Felines and flowers seem to be my specialty, and don’t they both work well for Mother’s Day? I offer their inspirations all the time, but Mother’s Day is one of those special days when a love of animals and an enjoyment of flowers are what is first on the list. I do have a lot of things in that image, and that isn’t all. Visit Portraits of Animals and browse what you can find for that special person who nurtured your love of animals.
