ANIMAL RESCUE LEAGUE SHELTER & WILDLIFE CENTER’S FUNDRAISER:

ANIMAL RESCUE LEAGUE SHELTER & WILDLIFE CENTER MARATHON 2015

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.

OUR MISSION

MISSION STATEMENT: THE ANIMAL RESCUE LEAGUE’S MISSION IS TO PROVIDE TEMPORARY SHELTER, FOOD, MEDICAL ATTENTION, AND COMFORT TO ALL ABANDONED, NEGLECTED AND INJURED ANIMALS BROUGHT TO US BY THE COMMUNITY; TO RESTORE LOST ANIMALS TO THEIR OWNERS OR SEEK NEW HOMES FOR THEM, AND TO EDUCATE THE PUBLIC ABOUT THE HUMANE CARE OF ANIMALS WITH A GOAL OF REDUCING OVERPOPULATION.

The Animal Rescue League Shelter and Wildlife Center was formed in 1909 by a group of citizens with a shared concern for both animal welfare and the public health. Since opening our doors in 1910, we have remained true to our mission of helping all animals in need, regardless of species or breed. At our Shelter, we care for and find permanent, loving homes for dogs, cats and other companion animals. We have no time limit on an animal’s stay with us – we keep all healthy and friendly companion animals until they are adopted. At our Wildlife Center, we rehabilitate wild animals native to Pennsylvania that have been harmed or displaced by encounters with man. We are the only shelter in the region that takes in and cares for both wild and companion animals.

Our Open Door policy means that no animal is ever refused shelter. Between the Shelter and Wildlife Center, we take in over 13,000 animals annually, and 15% of our animals came to us because they were turned away from limited admission shelters. As an Open Door Shelter, our presence is critical to the community. Without us, sick or injured animals would be left to suffer needlessly and dangerous animals would be left loose to roam the streets. Last year alone the Shelter re-homed over 6,100 animals and treated over 2,000 injured wildlife animals and spay/neutered over 6,400 animals.

We value your support and maximize every contribution to help as many animals as possible. Here are some of the ways your gifts may be used:

  • $30 will cover the cost of micro-chipping a cat or dog.
  • $45 will pay for vaccinations to protect a kitten or puppy so he can be ready for adoption.
  • $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.
