The Tribune-Review features creatures from six area animal shelters in need of homes.

This week's pet is from Animal Friends of Westmoreland.

From its website: “Hey there! My name's Ralphy. I'm a 1-year-old pointer mix who is looking for a new best friend. I was recently brought to the shelter by my owner because she could no longer care for me. I really miss her, but I'm hoping there might be someone else out there who will love me and give me a nice new home to spend the rest of my life in! I'm a really nice boy, and I'd love to be a new member of your family. The people here at the shelter have made sure that I'm up to date on vaccinations, neutered and I also have a mirochip. I would do well in a home with other dogs, and I like kids too! We're not sure what I think of cats yet.”

The photos are taken from the rescue websites weekly, but please check with the shelters before falling in love. There are plenty of animals who want nothing more than a new, loving family.

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.
