The Precious Life of Pets
Mary Kennedy Withrow of Western PA Humane Society (WPHS) and Jonathan Plesset of Pittsburgh Aviation Animal Rescue Team (PAART) watched from Pittsburgh as West Virginia fell victim to a deadly train of storms in late June. The horrendous flooding killed 23 people, forced thousands to evacuate, destroyed and damaged thousands of homes and businesses, and left many pets stranded with nothing and no one. Having worked on most of the natural disasters in the U.S. in recent years, Withrow, the shelter director and director of government affairs at WPHS, was looking for ways to help when she received a call from the American Humane Association. As fate would have it, PAART was flying to the area to provide medical supplies the following day. Together, the organizations relieved a full shelter and brought three dogs, including our adoptable cover girl, Zoe, home to begin new lives in Western Pa. “The devastation is unbelievable,” says Withrow. “Not only to people’s homes and personal belongings, but the literal loss of their pets — or when people have to pick which pet to take, leaving the other behind. It’s heartbreaking.” Plesset adds, “What do you hold onto — your family photos or your pet?” Despite such dark moments, Withrow and Plesset are seeing the light. “There are carpenters, roofers, and electricians from all over the country helping such tragedy,” says Withrow. “It’s especially heartwarming when you see people come together for the animals.” “It’s really something to be a part of,” adds Plesset. You, too, can support PAART and WPHS at its upcoming events, Dog Days of Summer on August 27 and Best Friends Ball on September 16, respectively. For details or to adopt, visit nodogleftbehind.org and wpahumane.org. PLUS Local food trucks, including Wok of Life, Randita’s, Cool Beans, and Las Chicas; adult beverages; entertainment; and silent and live auctions will add to the evening’s fun, as attendees help support PAART’s mission to rescue thousands of animals in need.
