org Jasmine Goldband | Tribune-Review - Female pitbull Nana, 4, (left) and male pitbull Lambert, 4, wait for adoption. From filth to a forever home: That’s the life story Western Pennsylvania Humane Society officials hope to write for five pit bulls they rescued from a North Braddock home last May. Authorities removed 32 cats and dogs from the house, many of which had been crowded into small, dirty cages with other animals. Humane Society officials then spent weeks cleaning, training and rehabilitating the animals, shelter spokeswoman Gretchen Fieser said. Most have been adopted, but the last five -- Lambert, Nana, Bull, Vlad and Quentin – still need homes. For more information call (412) 321-4625. To watch a video on the dogs, visit www.wpahumane.
