Pitt’s People for Pets
Officials from the University of Pittsburgh delivered more than 2,100 pounds of animal food and $2,200 in donations to Animal Friends, a shelter in Kilbuck Township, North Hills. The food and donations, along with pet toys and treats, were collected on the Pittsburgh campus during November as part of the annual Pitt’s People for Pets drive. The donations support Animal Friends’ Chow Wagon, which helps struggling families avoid having to choose between feeding themselves or their pets. The Chow Wagon animal food and pet-toy donations serve more than 1,000 families and are distributed through 24 area food pantries.
