Check out these very worthy adoptable dogs and cat waiting for their forever homes from the Humane Society of Southern Arizona and Tucson Cold Wet Noses.
Skippy – #735973 – 10 Months Old – Shar Pei Mix – Male
Skippy has 10 months of love pent up inside of him! When you meet Skippy, you’ll understand just how much affection this guy is willing to share: Infinite amounts! Found as a stray near San Xavier, Skippy was picked up and waited for many weeks at a shelter. When he started to come down with the sniffles, Skippy was transferred to the Humane Society of Southern Arizona so that he could recover and continue his search for a family. He’s all better now and so happy to share his gratitude in the form of hugs. Although Skippy had a rough start, he will certainly make a perfect companion for anyone interested in a medium-sized, playful dog. Could you be the tail-wagging worthy ending Skippy has been dreaming of? Don’t forget – Skippy has a waived adoption fee through October as part of the ASPCA $100K Challenge. Watch Skippy’s video.
Mr. Kitty – #713425 – 11 Months Old – Domestic Short Hair – Male
World’s nicest (and most fashionable!) feline in search of a BFF. Dear Mr. Kitty is a cordial lap cat who simply wants to be around people and will do whatever it takes to get your attention. This outgoing gentleman loves hugs, toys and compliments. Surrendered to the Humane Society of Southern Arizona when his family learned that they were expecting a baby, Mr. Kitty is now in need of a kind and committed caregiver. In exchange for his endless loyalty and affection, Mr. Kitty has a few requirements. Due to his ulcerative dermatitis, Mr. Kitty has self-inflicted scratches and wounds on his body. But he’s getting better every day. He just needs hypoallergenic food, over the counter topical treatments and a shirt to cover his body. Good thing he doesn’t mind wearing clothes and already has an impressive wardrobe amassed that will go home with him. The extra care and attention Mr. Kitty needs is well worth his unyielding love. If you could offer this deserving sweetheart a life of comfort and companionship, please get to know Mr. Kitty today at the HSSA’s Park Place mall PAWSH adoption center.
Pixie – Greyhound/German Shepherd/Alaskan Malamute mix – Tucson Cold Wet Noses
Loyal readers may remember Tucson Tails wrote about Pixie when she was going to be PTS (killed) and then when her $800 vet bills needed to be paid. Pixie is now well and looking for her forever home.
She is a petite 50-pound Greyhound mix who is between 3-5 years old and a love bug. She is calm, affectionate, completely potty trained with or without a doggie door-though she is not a fan of crates. She likes walks, but would rather cuddle up and keep you company while you read a book or watch TV. Not an excessive barker at all, she will let you know when someone comes to the door with a couple of barks. She does “perimeter checks” in the yard to keep her friends safe. Pixie is people oriented, likes to know what the people are doing. She is happy to greet you warmly when you get home from work with some little kisses and wanting a back scritch or a belly rub (her favorite!). Her life started out a little rough, she had a wound on her leg that is completely healed. She is a bit head shy, but is coming around beautifully and blossoming into a confident girl. She is learning to play with toys, and cow hooves are a favorite pastime. She is spayed, healthy, UTD on shots, microchipped and ready to move into her forever home. She loves to be loved, and is looking for a gentle adopter to show her kindness and affection. She sits, lies down, and catches a treat out of the air like a pro. She will also go to her dog bed if you point to the bed and say “go lie down.” She walks well on a leash, when she’s excited she wants to take the lead and get the show on the road, but responds to direction to walk next to you. She is beautiful, graceful and sweetly curls into a ball to sleep on her dog bed-She would *really* like to curl up in the people bed with you!
Miss Pixie is well behaved when she meets dogs her size, but doesn’t live well with others. She would really like to be your one and only. She’s got a lot of love to give, and doesn’t want to share with other pets.
No cats/small dogs
With training, effort and supervision, and a savvy adopter she could be with a medium or large dog-but her preference is to be your one and only.
She has met several children and was well mannered (not crawling all over her but gave her a hug)
Available thru Tucson Cold Wet Noses, adoption fee applies-vet records transferred from Benarda Veterinary Clinic (with full blood panel) and rescue records from her spay.
