Jason Cohen, a member of the real estate consulting group Jason Cohen Pittsburgh, has successfully invested in a range of properties in the greater Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, area and beyond. Outside of the professional arena, he and his company support multiple community outreach organizations and charitable nonprofits, including the Animal Rescue League.

From its Pittsburgh headquarters, the Animal Rescue League has protected animal welfare and public health for more than a century. In addition to providing shelter and veterinary services for companion animals such as dogs and cats, the League supports a fully licensed wildlife rehabilitation clinic.

The Animal Rescue League Wildlife Center is located on Verona Road in Verona, Pennsylvania, where it cares for and medically treats a wide range of sick, injured, and/or orphaned native Pennsylvania wildlife. When animals are well enough to return to the wild, the Center does so in a responsible and humane manner.

The Wildlife Center currently admits close to 4,000 animals on an annual basis. Its staff members draw upon more than 23 years of combined rehabilitation experience and maintain a successful release rate that is nearly twice the national average.
