THE STORY:

If you know me, you know I love Animal Friends.  I will be going into my third year of volunteering at the shelter and hitting my 2,000 hour mark in 2013.  Volunteering wasn't enough, so I decided to Run for a Reason in my first half marathon!

Please help me raise money for my favorite organization, Animal Friends!!

Join Team Animal Friends at the 2013 Pittsburgh Marathon and help us raise more money than ever before.

In 1943, at the height of World War II, a small group of Pittsburgh citizens came together in an effort to find homes for soldiers’ pets when they left to serve in the war. After the war, still faced with the need for ongoing compassionate control of the pet overpopulation and placement problem, the group opened a shelter and incorporated. They took a name that clearly articulated their mission: to serve as friends to unwanted animals.

Over time, Animal Friends evolved to meet increased demand for our services. By providing low or no-cost spay/neuter surgeries to low-income pet owners, feral cat colony caretakers, pit bull owners, and shelters without spay/neuter programs, Animal Friends’ goal is to spay or neuter 30,000 pets over three years. These are pets that would not otherwise have access to spay or neuter surgeries. Through these efforts, our goal is not just to relieve pet overpopulation and unnecessary euthanasia in southwestern Pennsylvania—but to end it.

A group of Pittsburgh citizens are coming together once again to serve the homeless and unwanted animals of this region on May 5th for the annual Pittsburgh Marathon. Please support these runners and their mission to end pet overpopulation. You can make a donation in support of a particular runner or make a general donation to Animal Friends.

$50 – Underwrites one spay surgery and keeps 55 unwanted animals from being born.

$ 100 – Provides vaccines, a medical exam and microchip for a shelter animal.

$150 – Provides critical care to a rescued animal

Thank you all for your support!
