PAART Rescue Activity

10 Animals And One Special Mission

When we got the call that a shelter was in trouble and needed to clear their animals asap we jumped in with both feet. After helping 6 animals from the shelter the day before, in between another rescue mission, we decided to send a second team. 10 animals who needed to be helped, or they […]

Double Mission

It’s something we have seen before and it’s these kinds of stories that hang heavy on our […]


In light of the events of the past 24 hours its hard to even think about talking about anything else other than the tragedy we as Pittsburgher’s experienced. It’s easy to forget in moments like these that evil people only make a tiny percentage of our community. This is not the norm, rather this is […]
