11 Cares, Giant Eagle supporting Pets for Vets Program at Animal Friends

PITTSBURGH — Pittsburghers love dogs and love to support veterans. That's why 11 Cares and Giant Eagle teamed up to help the Pets for Vets Program at Animal Friends, which includes both!

We collected pet food, treats, supplies and monetary donations at the Giant Eagle Seven Fields location on Saturday, Oct. 19 from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m.

206 Seven Fields Boulevard
Seven Fields, PA 16046

The Pets for Vets Program at Animal Friends ​​​​provides our veterans with specially selected and trained companion dogs free of charge. Some medical care is also provided at no or low cost. Included in the adoption of a companion dog is a customized welcome package of supplies and a lifetime Allegheny County dog license.
