If you have been considering adoption, be sure to stop by on Saturday to meet some of the lovable animals that the Humane Society has to offer in an informal environment. We will also have some of our pet food venders handing out free samples if you would like to learn more about what we offer everyday in our Pet Department.

Notable Past Events
6/16/15 – Blue Buffalo Pet Food Truck: For the first time, we are excited to welcome the Blue Buffalo pet food truck. This mobile event truck is be handing out samples and coupons for their dog and cat foods. Representatives from the company will also be in attendance, so bring all of the questions that you might have. Blue Buffalo is fast becoming one of our most popular pet food brands. They make top quality dog and cat food and treats, all with no by-product. Recap: The first visit from the Blue Buffalo pet food truck went off without a hitch. There was a little bit of rain that interrupted the day, but the sales reps were able to talk to many customers and inform them about the Blue Buffalo brand. Their truck is typically present at BMX events on the weekends, so we were very grateful that the truck was able to spend so much time at our store during a busy schedule. Visit our facebook page for a look at their mobile event truck, it was literally a blue buffalo with the horns and everything!
5/25/15 – 11 am – Memorial Day Hot Dog Sale: Join us after the South Hills Memorial Day Association’s parade passes through Uptown Mt. Lebanon for a hot dog and drink! We are grilling over 500 hot dogs to benefit the Wounded Warriors Project. All money from the event will go directly to the charity. Be sure to stop by for a tasty Kunzler hot dog right off a Weber grill. Hot Dog and Drink for just $1.00! Recap: Thanks for all that donated to the Wounded Warrior Project. We had many generous individuals donating without the purchase of a hot dog and others contributing more than the $1 suggestion. We really appreciate all who stopped by; it is you guys that make this event such a success and why we continue to do this each year! We sold over 500 hot dogs, ran out of buns temporarily, but got right back on track and finished them all off. Total amount raised was over $700!!!! Thanks again everyone – all proceeds will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project.
4/18/15 – Jonathan Green and the New American Lawn: An educational day filled with a bunch of questions and answers. Recap: The President of the Jonathan Green company helped customers in our lawn and garden department throughout the afternoon and provided us all with some great information! The New American Lawn program is a new and improved way to look at lawn care, by focusing on the causes of a problem lawn, rather than just the symptoms. Stop in to our store to learn more, or visit the Jonathan Green website.
8/16/14 (SAT) – Adopt a Pet Day (10am to 2pm): This event was a big success once again. The Western PA Humane Socity and Golden Retrievers in Need Rescue Service were both in attendance. Recap: Happy dogs and cats were plentiful on this exciting day. There were no adoptions made in-store, but we are hopeful that many of the dogs and cats that spend the day with us will find a home shortly. A big thanks to all those that stopped by and made donations to the Western PA Humane Society. It is through donations like yours that help them do so many great things for these homeless animals! The Golden Retrievers In Need were very pleased in their time spent here and are excited for future opportunities to work with our store, so we hope that we can have them again soon!
