• Animal Rescue League Hosts Paw Prints Gala

    PITTSBURGH,None - The 11th Annual Paw Prints Gala was held in the West Hall at Heinz Field on Saturday.

    The event featured gourmet dinner, cocktail hour, adoptable pets and live music. Guests also participated in a scavenger hunt and bid on live and silent auction items. Some of the prizes included an autographed Jordan Staal jersey, an autographed Steelers football and a Rod Woodson signed 2009 Yamaha V-Star 950.

    The Paw Prints Gala is the Animal Rescue League's biggest fundraiser.

    The league's mission is to provide temporary shelter, food, medical care and comfort to all abandoned and mistreated animals in the area.

    "We accept any animal that needs refuge or home, no matter what the circumstances for that animal are," said Dan Rossi.

    His words struck chords with the many animal lovers in the hall. Several attendees volunteer regularly for the organization and have adopted homeless pets.

    Special guests included Martha the owl and Murphy the skunk.

    The hall was decorated with photos of furry friends who have been rescued, and facts about the rescue league scrolled on the television screens for guests to read.

    BNY Mellon sponsored the Paw Prints Gala.
