After their help initially was rejected, three local animal shelters -- Animal Friends, the Animal Rescue League Shelter & Wildlife Center and the Western Pennsylvania Humane Society -- are working to help pets that were at Triangle Pet Control Services in McKees Rocks. In addition, the Western Pennsylvania Humane Society is investigating the case of a mixed breed dog who died in its cage at Triangle. Necropsy results are expected in a day or two. The groups issued a press release today. When Triangle's license was revoked on Monday, the three shelters offered to rescue pets or provide veterinary service. The release said the shelters said they were told the pets were going to a rescue group across the state. However, the shelters found out that, due to a delay, 20 pets were still at Triangle on Thursday, some needing veterinary care. As a result, Animal Friends rescued nine of the dogs on Thursday, and Animal Rescue League rescued nine on Friday. The other animals are to be reclaimed by their owners. Of those rescued by the shelters, three are in care at a local emergency clinic. The rescued pets will be evaluated and spayed or neutered and be put up for adoption.
