Hi everyone, my name is Claudia! I'm a 2 year old pitbull mix and a new gal here at the South Hills Pet Rescue. Not too long ago, I was wandering the streets looking for a new friend to take me in. After 3 days of sleeping in someone's yard, I found myself at Animal Control. I was a little too skinny, so the nice people at Animal Control tried to fatten me up and told my new friends here about me. Now I'm here and I'm so ready to find my forever home!! I'm a very sweet, affectionate girl and I really enjoy going on walks and playing with rope toys. Wanna meet me? Come in anytime Sun-Fri from 1-7 (closed Tuesday's), Sat 11-5 or email shpr88@yahoo.com for more info. I hope to see you soon!
Love,
Claudia

About South Hills Pet Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

The mission of South Hills Pet Rescue is to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome dogs of all breeds, with all needs.

Our Story:

Nick Ferraro ran South Hills Pet Resort, a boarding and training facility, and purchased it in 2012. Ashley Rittle was having a hard time with her dog, and called Nick to request his training services. Little did they know the adventure ahead; they were married in June 2013, and that August, they were asked to help a local animal rescue that had been overwhelmed with dogs pulled from high-kill shelters set to be euthanized for behavioral issues. They agreed to take 13 dogs, but 62 dogs were dropped off at their door filling all of the Resort’s boarding kennels. Nick and Ashley cared for all 62 of these dogs in need, rehabilitating them before finding each dog a forever home. Ashley will tell you this is the moment they knew what they had to do. The plan was to dedicate ten of the Resort’s boarding kennels to dog rescue, but as we all know, plans often change.

Today, South Hills Pet Rescue (SHPR), an independent 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, houses an average of 50 rescue dogs at all times. Apart from three part-time staff members who care for the dogs onsite, SHPR is run by volunteers. Your support of SHPR directly helps dogs in need!

Did You Know?

Once a South Hills Pet Rescue dog, always a South Hills Pet Rescue dog: if an adoption doesn’t work out, the adopter is required to return the dog to SHPR per the adoption contract so that SHPR can work to find him or her a new home.

Our Adoption Process...

Interested in adopting? Our available dogs come vetted, microchipped, spayed/neutered and with some basic training. To download an application, visit our website at www.southhillspetrescue.org/adopt/. SHPR recommends homes with children age 10 and older, but ultimately it's the family's decision.

Adoption Process:
- Meet the pup, fill out an application, and schedule a meet-and-greet with our canine behavioral consultant (if you have other pets at home). Home check may be required.

Final steps include signing a contract, fulfilling the adoption fee, and taking your new friend home!
