Alumni society supports animal shelter’s open house

6/14/2011 —

The Penn State Greater Allegheny Alumni Society will partner with The White Oak Animal Safe Haven to support their open house on Saturday, June 25, from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. The White Oak Animal Safe Haven is located at 2295 Lincoln Way in White Oak.

“This is a new beginning for our shelter,” said Ina Jean Marton, founder and director of the no-kill animal shelter. “We have renovated the facility and added space, including new dog runs.”

Since the shelter opened over 10 years ago, it has been the temporary home to over 8,000 dogs and cats. Currently there are 12 dogs and approximately 80 cats awaiting adoption.

The open house will include food by Charlie’s of Monroeville, entertainment by the country band Dallas Marks and a visit from the Penn State Nittany Lion. The Alumni Society will underwrite a portion of the entertainment.

“We are proud to support the community and the good works of the White Oak Animal Safe Haven,” said Denise Kubli, President of the Penn State Greater Allegheny Alumni Society.
