National Pet Theft Awareness Day is Sat.

Citizen Staff Writer

Folks can show their pets how much they love them by keeping them safe this Valentine’s Day, which happens to be National Pet Theft Awareness Day.

The Humane Society of Southern Arizona offers some safety tips for furry friends:

• Keep pets indoors when not at home

• Have an updated identification tag and sturdy collar

• Have pets microchipped

• Spay or neuter pets so they are less likely to roam

• Padlock gates. Make sure fences are high enough

• Never leave a pet unattended in a vehicle

• Keep pet licenses current and keep a current photo of the pet on hand

Report lost pets to the Humane Society at 327-6088 and the Pima Animal Care Center at 243-5900.

Also in observance of the day, microchips are half price at $10 at the Humane Society, 3450 N. Kelvin Blvd. The special runs from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday. No appointment is necessary.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
