Thank you South Hills! We love our Lana!!! More...
My son adopted his dog from here. They did a great job helping him find his new best friend
Great rescue, easy adoption process. They really care about saving from kill shelters. Nothing but great things to say.

We adopted our sweet pup Lucy(Jenny) this past Monday and she has been such a blessing❤ The staff at South Hills Pet Rescue are awesome. You really can tell how much they love the pups and how much the pups love them as well! More...

It will be 5 years the end of December that we adopted our Storm (a black lab greyhound mix). She is the most loving and cuddly dog that we have ever had. When we go on vacation we kennel her with South Hills. She loves playing with the other dogs. We recommend South Hills to anyone who is looking to adopt a dog They are the greatest! More...
We rescued a pit/lab puppy from here and it was the best thing we could've ever done. He is up at college with my brother now and they are best friends. A dog is really a man's best friend! More...
they are excellent with the animals. they really care
They worked with us to find the perfect pup. We have an older dog and cats. They were great to work with.
visited today for the first time. everyone was super helpful and patient with us. Hope to return to find a furever friend.
The staff and volunteers were wonderful people yesterday while me and my sister were looking for our new best friend. They obviously care so much about their animals, and the woman in the front room (please forgive me, I never got her name) was so helpful picking out the best dog to suit our needs. We will be bringing blanket and peanut butter donations soon! The volunteer that went along with us for our walk with Jade was awesome. Please go to SHPR for your next best friend! More...
This is a fantastic Rescue , THE STAFF IS AMAZING KIND CARING !’ It’s ABSOLUTE DEDICATION that not many have !! I recommend adopting a dog from them ! ! Also donations are always needed as this is non profit !! More...
friend rescued a dog from them. has nothing but good things to say. i went to donate blankets etc friendly staff.
So much love and care go into these animals! The south hills pet rescue workers absolutely love these animals. They are overjoyed when their animals get forever homes. The process in adoption is a great way to KNOW your forever friend will be happy! More...
Nancy Kopala Tomaszewski
Great place. I love Frisco and I am so thankful he rescued us!! Everyone is great and so helpful. Highly recommend!!
This place is part of our family. Our Zooey was there for day care weekdays for more than two years, when She died last year, I was devastated. Just two weeks ago, they helped us adopt our sweet Wendy Willow who is the perfect new member for our pack. Did I mention our other dogs are also from here. You can find prettier, fancier facilities, but not better people who care more. More...
Excellent trainers and caring people !
Very caring staff and volunteers! Showed us many dogs and puppies until we found the ONE!
The care that the owners provide to the dogs is unmet. So much love and compassion to every living thing there! Nick and Ashley, along with all the other volunteers and associates, are one of a kind!
I got my rescue, Luna Bear, from this great place. She is perfect! She was house broken in 3 days. Gentle and very easy to train. You can tell these workers partial train the pups. No whining at night and understands commands. I love her and this place. More...
South Hills Pet Rescue makes sure to properly screen everyone and takes excellent care of their animals. They truly care about finding the right animal to the right new home. I highly recommend using them and, if you have time, volunteering or donating to their resort. Real Life animal Heroes! More...
Stephanie Sergel Yatchyshyn
We are thrilled to have been rescued by our new sweet little EVIE!! You can tell the staff truly loves and cares for all their rescues. We highly recommend South Hills Pet Rescue and Resort!! More...

there amazing and rhe dogs need homes
Our family adopted the duke formally Blake what an amazing group of people that work with the dogs. They are wonderful to deal with and we just love our boy
We adopted Domino, a border collie, that was abused. In the 1st 6 months, he's come along way. We left him go at his at own pace. He became a sweet, loving, gentle, and trusting dog. He's a good watch dog. More...
The staff here their dogs and want what is best for them!!!
We rescued our pup from South Hills Pet Rescue and are so happy! Dany (formerly Callie) was well taken care of by SHPR and they were able to answer all of our questions about her history. Dany is also happy in her new home:) thank you! More...
We adopted our dog Zeus from here. Very nice and knowledgeable personnel there.
I'm from out of state, but I personally witnessed what this amazing place does for these dogs. I was a foster for a dog from one of the Korean meat farms. I worked hard with him for months, but he needed more than my family could give. South Hills agreed to take him. in just a few months they had him ready to be adopted, and he was placed with a wonderful family. They kept me updated on his progress, and for that I am extremely grateful. I love that beautiful boy, and am so happy that this rescue was able to give him exactly what he needed. Now he is the dog that I always knew he could be. I can't say enough good things about them! Thank you for all you do! You are all my heros! More...
Amy Gillespie Smith
We adopted Sadie last July She is the sweetest girl you’d ever meet She loves ice cubes and belly rubs and playing outside We are truly blessed to have her in our family ❤️
Susan Gabrielle Humbertson
Amazing rescue that runs smoothly and has the animals' best interest at heart!
SHPR is great! The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. They have in sight on who they have currently and who they have coming in the future. You can't go and browse the animals they have, as when we were there we heard that asked alot, but if you have an idea of what your looking for they will match you up with a good match. Highly recommend them. More...
Kevin G. Barkes
About the only place we trusted to watch our dogs, and the only kennel our dogs actually looked forward to visiting. I think they often had more fun on their "vacation" than we did!
Rhonda L Alderson
Recommend to everyone looking to add to their loving family. Adopted my Niko 3 years ago from here. Passionate people who truly care about animals. Stop in & see them! You never know, YOU may be rescued! ❤️ More...
Nick and Ashely are amazing people. We got our dog from there. We had some hard time and had to board him for a while and they worked with us because he’s a special case. I fell in love with him immediately. I highly recommend getting a dog from the pet rescue. Great staff. Friendly respectful helpful. Just amazing people all around. More...
Everyone there is amazing. So helpful and attentive from start to finish when we adopted our puppy. Can’t say enough good things about this place!
This place is amazing!! We are so happy that you helped Nikki and that we were able to adopt her from you. You all could not have been more helpful, and we really appreciate it!!
Great people who really care about the wellbeing of their guests and placing them with a loving owner...
These people truly care about the animals they adopt out. They go above and beyond to make sure you find the perfect pet that matches your needs. I’m so happy that I found my little girl with these wonderful people. More...

Adoption was an easy process and pleasant. We love our new puppy!
Great rescue..lots of great dogs and great people who care about the dogs ..Not like the big box shelters where most of the donations go to pay big salaries. .
We just adopted our new member to our family and let me tell you, we are in love! SHPR is such a great shelter, they are caring and loving to their dogs and it shows! They ask just the right questions to help you find a perfect match that fits your life, I would definitely hands down recommend them to anyone who is looking for a perfect addition to their family! More...
They are careful about proper placement and what is best for the pup/dog! Class act!
I adopted the most beautiful girl at SHPR. She has made for me a near perfect companion. Thank you, SHPR!
Amy Ragan Thomas
We adopted a teacup Chihuahua on December 20th. She’s the sweetest girl! This shelter is AMAZING!
this is a rescue with heart! their adoptables can be fully trained to be the perfect family pet by Nick with his expertise. highly recommend!!
We recently adopted from SHPR and the experience was great. They are all about the dogs and you can tell how much they love them. Thank you for making our adoption process easy! I will definitely get another dog from them when it’s time! More...
They are so good at helping you select the perfect dog for your family!
We have adopted 2 beautiful puppies from this rescue. Staff is wonderful. Think rescue for your next pet

We adopted a puppy on Sunday..so excited to have him as part of our family! I also want to add that the staff were great and they were very organized and knowledgeable about the dogs and history! They take great care of the dogs too and are very caring!! More...
Outstanding group of people committed to caring for dogs.
We absolutely love our little Toby! Everyone at the shelter was so helpful throughout the whole process and are always available if we have any questions. They obviously care so much for these animals and want them to go to good homes! More...
Tinker is doing amazing thank you for her wonderful spay you follow through with everything. She’s a happy pup ❤️
the staff were awesome. the adoption was smooth. the animals are very well taken care of and unlike other shelters i have been in this one is well organized and very clean. i adopted this cute guy that is now called Harley More...
Great Rescue. They go the extra mile to help the fur babies!!
Stephanie Yuhas Mahle
What a great organization. I'm fostering the most awesome dog. David Miller saved her from death row which would have been such a loss for anyone who has or will meet her. thank you South Hills Pet Rescue
Long hours, hard work = knowing they have saved and adopted out so many great dogs.
I cannot say enough about South Hills Pet Rescue. Riley adopted us the day we dropped off Christmas stockings back in December. ..well we brought him home a few days later once our adoption paperwork cleared. We even helped at the spaghetti dinner this year. This is a wonderful group of people who work tirelessly to find the right home for every animal! They truly do awesome work!! More...

We adopted Meme now Cappuccino about two months ago after our fur baby Winn Dixie passed at age 14. Best decision we ever made for our family. Cappuccino has adapted well, and our boys have a new best friend. More...
Simply the best!
I rescued 2 puppies from here that where brought from Mississippi. They are the perfect fit for our family. Couldn’t be happier
We got our gunner here about a month ago, the people that work/volunteer here are absolutely amazing and really love and care that these animals get good homes.
Kristen Kaufmann Putignano
Nick came to our house for a behavioral training session and was simply amazing. Put my puppy at ease but most importantly, put me at ease. Was so helpful and patient and left me feeling confident and empowered. So thankful I heard about his services. More...
We rescued a 4 year old Blue Tick Coonhound April 2017 and an 11 week old Treeing Walker Coonhound Mix puppy December 2018 and wouldn’t go anywhere else to rescue a dog. Love the staff here. It was a great experience. More...
We adopted 2 dogs from South Hills Pet Rescue. First Shaggy (now Copper), an 8 month old Lab mix. Then 2 weeks later we adopted Elvis (now Bronze), a 7 month old Treeing Walker Coonhound. They are now best friends and seem to be loving their new home! Overall it was a great experience! The staff are all extremely nice and knowledgeable! I would recommend South Hills Pet Rescue to anyone. More...
Now having adopted twice in the last 6 months I can't recommend this organization more. They are truly there for the dogs best interests and finding them great homes. All the staff was helpful and friendly. If your ever in the market for a new best friend don't go to a pet store or a breader, stop in or follow SHPR's posts and quickly you will find some-pup for you. I sadly now have to unlike them, or else I will have to buy a bigger house just for the dogs. More...
Anita Z. Tilford
Fabulous place to find your family friend. The people are great and caring and have huge hearts. If you cant take a dog or puppy pleasse donate to them. They need help and volunteers to continue their worthy missison of saving animals. More...
Kahla Bowers Hodgkiss
Thank you to South Hills Pet Rescue for helping my mom find a companion. My mom unexpectedly lost her 14.5 year old husky in January. She was heartbroken and was lonely without a dog. SHPR were nothing but kind and caring towards my mom and listened to her. They helped her find sweet Livvy who is just the cutest girl ever! My mom loves her so much already! Thank you again!! More...
If I could rate South Hills Pet Rescue and Resort with 100 stars, I would! By chance I met Ashley at a pet store two week ago. We talked about our dogs past and present and I told her my husband and I were interested in a "hound". She told me about the Belgian Malinois/Blue Tick coon pups ready for adoption. We went the next day to see them and instantly fell in love and was adopted by Guinness. By the end of the week he was home with us. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and above all devoted to saving these precious dogs. In the long run thats what really counts. I'll disagree with anyone who says otherwise! Thanks Ashley, Nick and Cheryl from the bottom of our hearts... Barbara & Bill Ranegar Guinness' Mum & Dad More...

We recently adopted Kiara, a Korean Jindo who was rescued from a meat farm. She is so lovable and extremely timid but we intend to shower her with love and affection and make her happy to be with us. Thank you, South Hills Pet Rescue and Resort for helping us to expand our family. More...
I rescued an 11 week old coonhound / mastiff. They were very nice and very affectionate to the dogs, which not a lot of rescue places are. She cared about them you could tell. My big boy Opie is healthy and happy now that he has a home. When I get the itch to get another dog, I’ll come right back to this rescue. More...
My husband and I adopted our coonhound Mira from SHPR and she is an amazing dog! The rescue did a great job taking care of her and we’re so happy to have her in our family!
I love how they obviously care about their animals. I had adopted my dog Lilo (Louise before we adopted her), and they kept her for an extra day just to make sure her stitches and wound were healed after her spay. My husband and I wouldn't have gone anywhere else! Much love for this rescue! More...
This review is a little late! However, we rescued our Pitbull mix puppy back in September and we cannot be more happier with him and South Hills Pet Rescue for their customer service and smooth adoption process. Jeff, Cooper, and I want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts! Cooper is so happy in his new home! More...
I adopted my puppy from here and they followed up with me afterwards, which was awesome. The staff is very nice, treat the dogs well and truly care about each and every dog.
What a great rescue resort. They take such great care of all dogs. Whether your boarding or adopting. We got our jindo there. . staff is helpful and pleasant. Recommended highly More...

I am a foster in Lewisburg, TN for a local rescue assistance group. I have had the privilege of working with and fostering several of the dogs that have made there way to south hills. I have seen pictures of the dogs in there new homes and have followed them through there journey. South Hills is a wonderful place! More...
Thank you for helping me find my best fur friend!! My heart is so happy!
Thank you for taking such great care of Keelah every time we are away. It's never easy to leave your pet, but knowing they are being well taken care of while in another person's care is comforting. She's always happy when we pick her up and always smells great from her bath! More...
I have a adopted two pit mixes from SHPR, Oak and Willie aka Big Will. They are both super sweet, silly boys and have fit into our homes wonderfully. When we had a few behavioral issues with Oak, Nick was right there to work with us and very knowledgeable. When it came time to add another dog, the staff was great with making sure we had a dog that would fit our life and get along well with Oak. We have had Oak for almost 3 years and Willie for 2years. I recommend SHPR to all of my friends looking to add a new fur baby to their lives. They always put the animals first and really take pride in what they do. I am grateful for the staff, the owners and for what they do on a daily basis � More...
I’ve seen very happy people leave there with their new pets or those that they entrust to them to board them. It’s a much needed service in the South Hills, and I’ve seen them do great things.
Very friendly and knowledgeable staff! When someone else adopted the original puppy we came to see they called us as soon as a new match came in! We love our new fur baby so much!
We have had Roxy for eight (8) months now life has never been better! The pure joy and happiness she is brought to our home is overwhelming. We adopted Rox as a companion for our now 5 year old Lab, Hank. They are best friends, she has added years to his life. She is my husbands shadow and constant source of entertainment. I now believe we did not save Roxy she saved all of us. Thank you all More...

The best dog we ever got!!! Siren is not only our dog he is my daughters service dog and such an important part of our lives! !! Im so happy we went to South Hills Pet Rescue for Siren! More...
I recently left my mastiff and maltese for a 9 day stay...the first we have been away from them in seven years. I was very nervous but there was no way to take them. When we picked them up, they were frisky, well-fed and smelled heavenly because of their baths. A bargain and I definitely recommend them for you pet sitting needs! More...
Our blue had his first away from home experience. He is a pittbull and has a bit of an attitude. He did wonderful there and we will be returning for future stays. It is hard to find somewhere that will take him, i am glad we found a good fit. More...
Thank you for taking such great care of Bella while we were on vacation!!!
Thank you so much for your hard work on the rescue in Smithfield! Awesome Job!�
This place is Awsome, We went there dogs were well taken care of,& they are really cool people.
Just adopted Kira from the shelter today. Nick is very knowledgeable and has been very helpful. Kira is adjusting to her new home, and my wife Rachel and I absolutely love her! I would recommend South Hills Pet Rescue and Resort to anybody looking to adopt a new furry friend. They are very hands on with their dogs, and Nick and the staff are determined to make sure the dogs are taken care of! More...

The most wonderful place ever!!! If you need a new friend and want to give someone a"forever home" this is the place to visit. It is loving, clean, caring and full of love�for our friends that have no voice. More...
Cannot say enough about what a wonderful job y'all did taking care of and loving Charlotte while she waited for us to find her. She is an absolute delight even on her very first evening with us. Thank you for everything! We'll keep in touch! More...
I have worked@ and volunteered@ many shelters, I went to SHPR to groom some dogs& I saw a guy scrubbing kennels,yep the OWNER NICK DOWN & DIRTY WORKING HIS TAIL OFF, It is ALMOST UNHEARD OF AN OWNER CLEANING KENNELS. GREAT PLACE BETTER PEOPLE. THANKS FOR ALL OF YOU. I will be out to groom up& bath some dogs soon. More...
Amazing rescue group. Actually, the BEST rescue group! I have adopted from WPHS but love the fact this is a no-kill shelter and I recommend them to everyone. When I adopt another dog besides the one I already have, it will be from them. Hands down the best. More...

What a wonderful experience!!!! My family and I found our new family member.... welcome to our family Fleury!!! Cheryl thank you for everything!!
All were great and had patience with us and connected us to the right dog. nick was great at showing us how to handle and what to expect from our new dog. thank you Nick
I adopted Murphy (formerly Wookie) last week and was very pleased with SHPR! The staff were very nice and informative, and it's clear how much they care for their pets. Thank you again!
Great people to deal with. Nick and staff are very professional, and working very hard for these dogs.
First I'd like to say that Cheryl and Nick do amazing work in helping these animals and taking care of them until they find their forever homes. Not everyone can do this type of work and it's amazing they dedicate their time and resources to helping animals in need. I was interested in adopting a dog who would not only get along well with my son but with our other rescue dog as well. I took my son with me to see some dogs and I explained what we were looking for and it was like they knew the perfect match for us right away. It really showed me they know their dogs well and truly understand their temperaments and what will fit them best. We came back the following day to allow our dog to meet the dog we hoped to adopt and Nick assessed their behavior as they played to ensure it would be a good match for both dogs. The steps they take show their commitment to finding the right homes for each specific dog. They have thorough applications which cover all the possible issues which could arise and it shows they're not cutting any corners when it comes to finding the right family and household for each dog. We so appreciate all that SHPR does and did for us in finding our perfect new addition to the family. Buckshot, now known as Boz, couldn't be a better fit for us. Thanks for all y'all do! More...
Michelle Rowe Lemansky
We had Nick, their animal behavioralist, come to our house to help with our dachshund's fear and constant barking at my husband. He gave us some tips that are helping where other trainers ideas didn't work. Thanks, Nick! More...
I took my dog to see Nick (the trainer) for behavioral issues. Nick was so patient throughout the whole session with both me and my dog. I started to see results in my dog's behavior before the 60 minutes was up. Not only did he work with my dog but he also took time to explain to me where I was making mistakes and helped me make proper corrections so that both me and my dog would succeed. I am looking forward to further sessions with Nick once we master our lesson from today! Thank you Nick and the entire staff at South Hills Pet Rescue and Resort! More...
Anyone who devotes this much time to animals especially when they have a family--deserves the utmost respect. The staff and the volunteers are unbelievable. I hope someday something so good comes to each and everyone of you because you all deserve it More...
This place and these people are FANTASTIC! We adopted Peaches who was Penelope. It took a couple of weeks but she is trusting us more and more and her puppy is definitely coming out. Thanks again for taking care of these wonderful dogs! More...

Awesome owners and staff. They helped me and my dogs when no other place would. I owe them a debt of gratitude for all that they did for my "puppies"!

It's been a week since we adopted our beloved Sampson. I could not have created a more perfect dog. Sammy is everything I could have ever wanted. ..and my daughter is in love! You are truly doing God's work. Thank you for all you do for these animals and for giving them their second chance at life More...
Jill Phillips Litman
We adopted Bentley, a 3 1/2 yr old Great Pyrenees mix from South Hills Pet Rescue last week!! They were amazing to work with and Bentley is the sweetest boy ever! Already been on many adventures!
Exceptional rescue! No amount of words can explain just how great it is. Look no further than SHPR to adopt a loving dog that they had they heart and soul to care for, love, and train while awaiting his or her forever home. They also stand by their dogs for the life of the pet, including after adopting them out! So much love and dedication here. Simply the best! More...
My husband and I adopted a 1-1/2 year old lab/shepherd mix in June! He is the sweetest pup and we are so taken by him! The staff is very helpful and listened to all of our requests and criteria for adopting a dog and let us meet as many as it took to find the right match. After 5 months with our new dog we knew he needed a friend and went back to SHPR for a new addition. This time we adopted a large breed puppy who we've now had for two days. Nick helped us choose both dogs and he really takes the time and tells you everything you need to know. The whole staff is very friendly and helpful and when we returned for our second dog they recognized us and asked about our first dog. They really care about their dogs and I wouldn't think of adopting a dog from any other facility. Thanks SHPR for making our house a home � More...
We adopted our dog Jack (formerly Jasper) yesterday and I highly recommend this Rescue! Cheryl and her crew gave us all his medical records, and were very well organized in making sure we had everything we needed. Thanks for letting us adopt the dog we've been missing! More...
Great place to adopt a dog! Don't let the curb appeal turn you away. They are dedicated to their cause.

So every single person knows. South Hills Pet Rescue is the only reason my Sadie is a normal, well adjusted dog!! Sadie had aggression issues and guarding issues. She was attacking my other dogs and biting us when we tried to break it up. We were wondering if could keep her and what we were going to do. Nick turned her into the best dog we have! No more attacking or issues and she listens immediately. Nick and South Hills Pet Rescue saved our family!! I will be forever in their debt!! More...
The people that work there are extremely nice and knowledgeable. They seem to really love the animals that they care for. My wife and I will have our fingers crossed while waiting to find out if the dogs we loved are a good fit, but we will go through them for another option if they decide our home isn't a good suit for our top choices . We have nothing bad to say about our visit or the people there. Five stars and two thumbs up! More...

Hello all, we just adopted a real sweetheart yesterday. We call her Ellie, she is a Pointer mix. She's very sweet, friendly and seems to learn very quickly. It's ok that she peed on my rug a few times . . . (at least she pooped outside!) lol. Anyway, a big giant thank you to the folks at the South Hills Pet Rescue and Resort for making our family and this puppy so very happy! You guys are great~ More...
Thanks for watching our fur kids! They are tired out for sure and came home smelling fresh from their baths
Without SHPR my family wouldn't be able to go on vacation. With a fear aggressive dog they were able to handle her and interact with her in ways many trainers we have used never could. Everyone is very helpful and friendly. My Bella is even walking better on leash and has calmed down a bit since staying a week there ! More...
We just moved to the area in November 2015 and we wanted to adopt. We thought our list was impossible but when we walked in we were assisted with 3 different dogs that fit our list! We met each one and his name then was Brutus, we changed to Tyson and he really is a great fit for us! More...
Renee A Gilstrap
We just adopted Bandit today from SHPR and the process couldn't not have been a more pleasant experience. Everyone truly cares so much for the "extended family members" and it shows.
I have to admit the first time I pulled up to south hills pet rescue I was like ohhh my what is this place but then I walked in to meet our puppy Sidney (gypsy) the staff was helpful and friendly with out shpr we wouldn't have the best puppy in the world. Sidney is amazing a sweet relaxed puppy with an amazing attitude. I can't thank you all enough More...

We got our new puppy from them and they were incredibly helpful and wonderful too us. We love our new baby Cody.

I would like to thank Ashley and Nick for their excellent service. I fostered then adopted Benson knowing his behaviour/insecurity issues some time ago. I was not handeling these issues appropriately as I thought and Benson was becoming more unruley. Nick came out to my home on May 11th and the changes in Benson were almost immediate. No one would ever be able to OR dare enter my home without risk. Nick walked right in and took immediate control of the situation and walked right out my door with Benson on a leash. Nick's firm, patient and compassionate way, understanding and training skills has made the biggest difference in Benson's behaviour with others. He is already become more confident, calm and relaxed than ever. I've come to understand, it was my issue in not dealing with inappropriate behaviour appropriately and not following through. Don't give up and don't give in, your dog will love you more for it. I recommend SHPR&R with 100% confidence that they will work through any issues you have! More...
Melissa Bilsky Satini
Thank you so much to Ashley and the staff at South Hills Pet Rescue!!! We couldn't be happier with our latest two additions, Spooky and Cooper!!!
Jen Cooper Malone
My husband and I adopted Jayda (now Morgan) from South Hills. We visited them a few times trying to find the right fit for the dog we already owned. The entire staff was very helpful and our little family has grown with the perfect addition of Morgan. We have also boarded our pups with South Hills. Morgan is happy no matter where she is but Ollie is known to have major anxiety when we leave him. To our happy surprise, Ollie was more comfortable in a kennel with Morgan than with a sitter. South Hills kept our dogs happy and healthy for the weekend and we will definitely be using them again. So all around awesome experience with these great people. More...

Would recommend highly this rescue, Very nice and compassionate poeple who take the time to work with you .Keep up the good work

My mom and I were just out today to visit with Niko and fill out an application for him. We wanted to thank you for taking the time to answer our questions and help us get to know him. Everyone we met was so friendly, and we truly appreciate all the work you are doing. We'll definitely refer you to any of our friends that are looking for a new furbaby! Thanks again! More...
We adopted Woofer/Moach, he is a wonderful dog. We enjoyed working with South Hills Pet Rescue, they were very helpful. Thanks again.

I adopted my dog Buckett, a boxer/sharpei mix, from South Hills Pet Resort. He is the most sweetest, cutest and well-behaved dog a girl could hope for! Ashley and Nick were so attentive, patient and kind throughout and after the entire adoption process. Couldn't have been a better experience!! More...
THANKS FOR ALL YOU DO. SO MANY FUR BABIES HAVE FOUND THIER FUR EVER HOMES THANKS TO PEOPLE WITH BIG LOVING HEARTS LIKE YOU !!!!

Leia is absolutely beautiful and an unbelievable addition to our family. We fell in love right away and we are so happy to have her as part of our lives. Cudos to South Hills Pet Rescue for connecting us with the perfect member of our family. More...

They stepped up to save a starved unwanted mama and her 7 puppies when no one else would save them.
In July I adopted a Pit mix from this group. He was very well taken care of and had some training. The folks there were very friendly and let me spend as much time him as I wanted. They took the time to introduce my dog with the dog I adopted and I knew if it did not work out I could take him back and he would not be put down but go to the right home for him. Fortunately, he is still here 4 months later. I believe that is because of time that was taken to make sure he would fit in. Our experience with South Hills Pet Rescue was a very good one. Thank you.

On Sunday we went to look into getting a new puppy partner for the pup we already have. We were greeted by wonderful people who introduced us to a beautiful little girl. Now less than a week later, we are thankful to have her home with us! Thank you for all the help in finding my Layla a best friend! More...
Thank you for what you do! We got a wonderful new puppy from you! Bones is the sweetest puppy! We love him so much! I would highly recommend you to anyone who wants a dog or puppy! We thank you again!
I love the hard work and dedication these people show to the animals they come into contact with everyday... I'm proud of all of your accomplishments!
We have the most wonderful dog that we adopted from here a year ago in June!
What a wonderful experience!!! Cinder has made herself right at home!! Keep up the wonderful work that you all do!!
Went in today looking for an adoption. Met with a puppy and a few other young dogs. Great experience. Everyone there was super friendly and helpful, and every dog we came into contact with was a sweetheart. Not sure why this place could get any bad reviews seeing that they actually care for the dogs rather than other places I've been too in the area are just keeping dogs alive long enough for someone to take them home. Definitely would recommend to anyone in the market for a dog and I didn't even get accepted yet. Keep up the good work. More...
We found our baby here! Brittany and all the other staff worked with us for over 2 weeks until we found our match in Buddy (now Harvey) :)
We met an adoptable dog on Sunday. We absolutely loved him. We went back yesterday with our dog and he just wasn't compatible with her. But, Nick took the time to talk to us and has been very helpful in finding us the right fur baby to add to our family. We are impressed with their professionalism and willingness to help us find not just a dog but the right dog. Thanks South Hills Pet Rescue! More...
This is a wonderful rescue with a great staff. Ashley and Nick are doing great things for these dogs. My father in law was so lucky to find his new friend here and we couldn't be happier with Miss Bea. My nephew and niece also adopted 2 pups a brother and sister and couldn't be more happy with the addition to the family! Will def send everyone we kno to you !! More...
We got our big boy Beau (Bandit)in January. ....he is quite a character....a little more dog than we were looking for... .but love at first sight. Our baby.....a work in progress...but love him to pieces. More...
Visited their facility today and was greeted by nothing but fantastic knowledgeable people! Thank you for everything you do!
This place is great! Thank you so much Nick for taking Damian in and finding him a place. I appreciate it so much! And thanks to Trish Cole. You made this happen! You guys are truly GREAT people. And thanks to everyone there! Thank you! More...
Truly amazing folks..thank you all for saving so many dogs other "rescues" turn away. Going above and beyond.
Amazing! I appreciate everything you do for animals ... helping find their forever home!

They were absolutely the best!!! Just adopted my little girl there, met Nick and Cheryl. Very nice ppl and a wonderful rescue! !!!! Would recommend to anyone, they take dogs from Animal Control and the humane officer when they are trying to get them adopted. More...
Nick is amazing with animals; loving, excellent with training. All the pets there are well cared for and i've seen it first hand working there in the past! Wouldn't trust my dog (that nick rescued) anywhere else More...
This is a wonderful shelter run by people who truly care. They have my total support
Jennifer Gray Kopelic
YAY!!! Many accolades to Nick and Ashley, and their volunteers for their dedication and hard work to help these dogs in need of loving and safe homes. Breaks my heart to see all those dogs who just want to be loved and find a forever home SHPR is the place to go!! More...
I've yet to adopt a dog, but my intention is to do so soon, and to adopt from SHPR. Everything I've seen tells me, though maybe not perfect, this a group of people who genuinely cares about animals and does their best to find them loving homes.
If it wasn't for South Hills Pet Rescue many dogs would've been left in shelters and died. They would've been euthanized because of other shelters being filled to the brim. The events they hold welcome all. The dogs adopted out are to loving home. Thank you. Thank you to the volunteers. Your selfless hours spent matter. More...
The life of any animal is a special one, no matter the breed. They all deserve a shot at a happy and loving home. SHPR gives these dogs a second chance at exactly that. My partner and I love fostering for them! More...
I used to work here during college and loved everything about the place! The owners take great care of the animals and make sure everything is clean and all dogs are loved, fed, watered and they always get their play time in! I'd trust my dogs here.

Nick is an awesome trainer. Such great people doing great things. Definitely bully friendly!
I love this rescue. They will try to take every dog they can and if they can't, try to find a solution for them. THEY are an awesome rescue.
How the dogs are trained and how they interact with people is so amazing. Our dog symphony is an amazing pit she listens so well and is so loving. South hills is the only place to get your new family member. When we desire to add another family member to ours it definitely going to come from south hills! More...

A.W.E.S.O.M.E. Service with Integrity! Our Bella is soooooo happy to be home!
From the bottom of my heart and from all my doggy loving community THANK YOU for saving Sheba !!!
These people truly care about the dogs they rescue and they work tirelessly to care for them and find them homes. We just adopted our second dog from them today and couldn't be happier - the staff is friendly and helpful and very quick to respond to any questions or concerns. Even though they are 45 minutes away from our home, we wouldn't go anywhere else! If you're considering a new furry pal in your home, please consider South Hills Pet Rescue as your source - you won't be disappointed! More...
Great pet rescue. My dog came me already having pretty good manners. You can tell these people put a lot time in with him.

This is the best Rescue out there as far as I'm concerned. They really love and care about each and every dog. It's a honor to be able to go there and help when I can which by the way isn't very often lately. Sorry Ashley I'll try to make more time to help. More...
