BRITTNIE – Female
Brittnie came to Pet Search mid February as a stray/owner surrender. At some point in her short life, she had been hit (probably by a vehicle) which broke her pelvis on both the right and left side. Unfortunately, when she came to Pet Search, the injury was more than 4 months old; a brace was ordered to help with her walking. When being fitted for the brace, we found that she was pregnant and a C-section was immediately scheduled. Brittnie is now the mother of 10 beautiful pups (6 boys and 4 girls) Mom and pups are all doing great and will be at Town and Country Animal Hospital through the weekend. The puppies will need bottled fed as she is producing little milk.
This is the third litter of puppies born in Pet Search foster homes in 2019…your donations help us to be able to save the lives of Brittnie and her babies as well as the 90 dogs/puppies and 55 cats/kittens that have come to Pet Search since January of 2019.

Annie is an absolute love bug! Annie was abandoned and no one came forward to claim this sweet little girl who was starving for food and affection. Annie is a year old, housebroken, crate trained and fully vetted. She is great with both dogs and cats.

ATARI – 2 years – Male
UPDATE: Atari has been with Pet Search for 10 months…he is patiently waiting for his chance to have a family. Atari is 2 years old, very loving and very submissive with people. He carries the many scars of being a bait dog, rescued from a drug house in Wilkinsburg. Although Atari was in the house with a female dog (also rescued by Pet Search), Atari should be the only pet in a home.
Atari has had a rough life…. he and his “sister” Lady were found and removed from their home when their owner was arrested. They were taken to Sable Kennels where they were cared for until a rescue was able to take them. Pet Search found a home for Lady, but Atari is still waiting in a Pet Search foster home. Atari has scars to prove that he was not well treated…But, despite his looks and scars, he is so gentle and loving. He is very submissive with people. He wants hugs and kisses and returns those hugs and kisses. He loves laying on the sofa and is quite an escape artist in getting out of his crate only to lounge on the sofa or bed. Atari is good with very passive female dogs, but would be best as an only pet; no cats.

VALENTINO – Male
“So today I’m driving along and I see a cat in the middle of the road. He just looked at me and didn’t bother to move so I stop the car and call him. He did the most unexpected thing and jumped in my car. He was completely covered in ticks and starving. So, I do what any crazy cat lady would do. I bring him home with me. He’s headed to Pet Search tomorrow but for right now I’m calling him “Valentino”. He is the biggest sweetheart ever.”
Thank goodness Christina stopped to help Valentino…Pet Search got him immediately to the vet, where he weighed 3.5 pounds. He was given almost 500ml of fluids because he was so dehydrated. He is ravenous, but we are feeding small portions of both dry and canned food so he does not make himself sick. He can only walk a few steps at a time before lying down because he is so frail due to weakness, but we are already seeing improvement. It was very difficult to draw enough blood for blood work, but we are ecstatic to report that he is negative for feline leukemia and feline aids.
Valentino is on the mend thanks to Christina who cared enough to stop and rescue him. He will receive excellent care in his foster home and will be neutered when he is strong enough.

I have been a good kitten this year… most of the time, I think. It isn’t my fault that my foster mom puts things on the table where I like to lay and so they get knocked on the floor.
For Christmas I would like some catnip to keep me crazy, a new ball, a laser toy and a family of my very own. I shared a foster home with 8 brothers and sisters and most have been adopted, but I would like my chance now too. I promise to try to stay out of the Christmas tree.
