This cat has the most beautiful eyes, doesn't he?
This is Harrold, a 4-year-old cat who is at the Animal Rescue League. Harrold needs a loving home. He loves ear scratched and to be petted.

Adopt this sweet 4-year-old miniature Poodle mix at the Animal Rescue League in Pittsburgh.
Say hello to Fran! This sweet dog is a 4-year-old miniature Poodle mix who was surrendered by her owner after they could no longer take care of her. She's a little overwhelmed by the shelter. But, she’s been very receptive to being held and stroked for her pictures.

The Pembroke Welsh Corgi is available for adoption.
Dori is a 6 year old, 43-pound Pembroke Welsh Corgi looking for a new home. Her owners surrendered her to the Animal Rescue League because she was chasing the cats and herding them around the house. They acquired her from relatives who were leaving her outside with no shelter or water. And they were feeding her people food for the past five years—and that's why she weights 43 pounds and not 25. Dori is on a special diet now, and she has already lost 10 pounds. She likes to pretend she's a lapdog, even though she's still a little plump. She likes to play with other dogs, but she needs a no cat household. Dori is great with well-mannered children, though she might try to herd them by nipping at their heels. Dori is very intelligent, and is …

National Dog Day is Sunday, Aug. 26. What will you do to celebrate man's best friend?
You might celebrate man's best friend on the regular, but think about making it an extra special day for your pup on Sunday. Aug. 26 is National Dog Day. That's the day animal advocate Colleen Paige has designated for honoring all those dogs who bring in the paper, and all those dogs who are neglected. Not to be confused with National Mutt Day (Dec. 2), National Puppy Day (March 23) or National Pet Day (April 11), each of the 19 national and international pet days founded by Paige are all designed with one thing in mind: to draw attention to the need for pet rescue. Paige, author, pet behaviorist and self-proclaimed "pet celebrity lifestyle expert" founded the Animal Miracle Foundation and Network (AMFN), a nonprofit Christian faith-based …
