'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Adopt older pets

November is National Adopt a Senior Pet Month. Animal Protectors, the no-kill shelter in New Kensington, has senior animals just waiting for their forever homes.

Senior pets (over 7 years of age) make great family members, plus someone knows exactly what they're getting — these animals' personalities are well established and our adoption counselors can match people with the perfect pet.

Animal Protectors also has a Seniors to Seniors Program. Adults older than 62 adopting a senior pet get a reduced rate on our fees. Many of our senior pets are in the shelter because their previous owners died or moved to a nursing facility.

Anyone looking for an addition to the family — and who doesn't want to spend the time training a puppy or kitten — should come and see our senior pets.
