THE STORY:

The Animal Rescue League of Western PA is one of the few animal rescue shelters with an OPEN DOOR policy. 

Animal Rescue League Shelter and Wildlife Center wrote-

Our open door policy ensures that no animal has to suffer needlessly on the streets. We love animals, so we take them in and never impose a time limit on how long they can stay. But you can imagine how this puts a tremendous strain on our finite resources.

The ARL strives to find homes for all adoptable animals. We keep all healthy and friendly animals until they are adopted into new homes. Animals that come to us with special challenges- either behaviorally or medically- are frequently placed with one of our many foster families for extra care and treatment until a suitable adoptive family is found.

Through the support of continued donations, the Animal Rescue League is able to save animals from euthanasia and maintain our Open Door policy. The ARL receives no government assistance, so in order to save pets, we rely on financial contributions from compassionate animal lovers like you.

Why does The City of Pittsburgh's Animal Control send all animals that it picks up right to our door? Because-for our animal friends - that door is always open!

Details on the program:

Welcome to Paws Over Pittsburgh, the Animal Rescue League's team for the 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.
