I am so excited to Run for a Reason this year!! I chose to run for the Animal Rescue League...not only has my family and I adopted from rescues, but my sister Heather is very involved with animals, and has done lots of work for the Wildlife Center. My mom has also volunteered for a period of time there. They both worked with rehilbilating animals to get ready to go back into the wild, but also those that have been injured that can not. Please read a little more below about the Animal Rescue League of Pittsburgh and Wildlife Center and what the donations go towards. Any amount is greatly appreciated!!!

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.
