Come pet the pets of the week



Niko – Humane Society

Niko is a whole lot of Jack Russell, and he’s looking for a terrier lover to love! An unusually plump little guy, Niko is a typical charmer who’s been active, playful and great with kids. He’s also been good in the house and gets along well with other dogs, though cats and other small animals are definitely not on his list of friends. At 7 years old, Niko is considered a senior citizen. Unfortunately, he lost his lifelong home when a relative with allergies moved in. This jolly fellow has had his blood tested and appears to be in good health for his age other than his obvious battle of the bulge. He really needs an understanding new owner who’ll give him plenty of exercise, a healthy diet, and the proper care to ensure that he lives to a ripe old age.

If you’ve got a soft spot for a feisty dog and are willing to give Niko a chance at a new life, please stop by the Humane Society’s Adoption Center for a visit. The shelter, at 3450 N. Kelvin Blvd., is open 11 a.m.-6 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and noon to 5 p.m. on Sundays. For more information, call 327-6088 or visit hssaz.org.

Usher – Casa de los Gatos

Usher is a 1-year-old male Maine Coon mix with a fun and sweet personality. He is very talkative and gets along well with other cats, but loves people most of all. Usher is hoping to find a playful and cuddly forever family to spend his life with. His adoption fee includes neutering, vaccines, tests, microchip and a free vet exam. For more info on Usher or the many other cats and kittens with Casa de los Gatos, please call 881-0900 or visit CasaDeLosGatos.org.

O’Connor – The Hermitage Cat Shelter

O’Connor came to the shelter after someone found him in their garage. He was a mere 4 months old then and he’s still considered a kitten, just bigger now. He is a short-haired orange tabby, and is so sweet and extremely gentle, but he’s not really comfortable socializing with all the cats here at the shelter. He is neutered, wellness checked and microchipped. Please come and see how cute he is in person.

See O’Connor at The Hermitage Cat Shelter, 5278 E. 21st St., which is open 1-4 p.m. Monday, Thursday and Friday and 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. The adoption fee covers current vaccines, microchip, trial pet insurance and lots of cat care information. Call 571-7839 or visit hermitagecatshelter.org for details.





Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
