Pittsburgh City Paper attended the Animal Friends' Telethon on Saturday March 24th! The 2012 Animal Friends telethon was a blast! We got to see all the wonderful dogs, cats and rabbits that need to find loving homes. Proceeds from the Telethon Online Auction benefited Animal Friends’ Medical Wellness and Outreach programming. The Medical Wellness department provides medical care for over 2,400 animals that find their way to Animal Friends each year. These programs are critical to the continued success of Animal Friends in caring for homeless pets and supporting the animal human bond.
