Helen Vassilenko, affiliated agent with the Cranberry office of Coldwell Banker Real Estate Services, shares quality time with some furry friends. She is chairing an Oct. 13, 2018, pet adoption event sponsored by her office.

Three area offices of Coldwell Banker Real Estate Services on Oct. 13 will help to match people who want to add pets to their lives with pets who need permanent homes.

The offices will join forces with local animal shelters to sponsor pet adoption events during the Homes for Dogs National Adoption Weekend. The events also are part of Coldwell Banker’s partnership with nonprofit pet adoption website

Food trucks will be featured at one of the events, set for 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Coldwell Banker’s East Regional office, 3865 Reed Boulevard, Murrysville. Shelters participating in the event include Animal Protectors of Allegheny Valley of New Kensington, Orphans of the Storm of Kittanning, Pet Adoption League of Yukon and Pet Match Rescue of Pittsburgh.

Two other regional events are set for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Butler County Humane Society of Renfrew, Three Rivers Greyhounds Inc. of Pittsburgh and Coldwell Banker’s Cranberry Township office will take part in an event at PetSmart’s Cranberry store, 1717 Route 228, Suite D.

Homestead-based Animal Lifeline Pittsburgh will be on hand at Coldwell Banker’s South Hills office, 1630 Washington Road, Pittsburgh.

In just the first year of their four-year collaboration, Coldwell Banker and its partners helped bring about more than 20,000 pet adoptions.

“We are lucky enough to help people in Pittsburgh and the greater Western Pennsylvania region find new homes every day,” Coldwell Banker President George A. Hackett said in a press release. “Now, we get to extend that service to pets in need. It’s a win-win.”

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
