Hi everyone! This is my second year running to raise money for the Animal Rescue League. Every dollar donated goes a long way to helping animals in need in Pittsburgh, especially for this great organization which relies on the efforts of volunteers and donations to keep moving forward with their mission.
Thanks to the ARL, I’ve met and rescued both of my dogs which both break the mold of what a “stereotypical” pit bull is supposed to be. Thanks to the ARL, their volunteers, and your generous donations, needy animals can keep getting the care they need and help finding loving homes of their own.

Welcome to Paws Over Pittsburgh, the Animal Rescue League Shelter & Wildlife Center's page for the Dick's Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon. We're thrilled that you have decided to step beyond yourself and include the well-being of domestic and wild animals as part of your overall training plan. By choosing to partner with the Animal Rescue League, you will be an advocate of our mission to educate people, as well as care for and restore animals to good homes. In return, we will partner with your training through opportunities to meet and exercise with like-minded friends, receive fun prizes for your advocacy milestones, and encourage your desire to Run for their Rescue!
Here are some of the ways we'll use the funds you raise:
$30 will cover the cost of micro-chipping a cat or dog.
$50 will provide low-cost spay/neuter services to a family who couldn’t otherwise afford it.
$100 will provide behavioral training for an animal to help her find a new home more quickly.
$1,000 will cover the total care for an animal that stays in our shelter for one month.
