This weekend (March 22, 23, 24) the Humane Society of Southern Arizona is throwing a Spring Break Adoption Extravaganza with food, fun and free adoptions.
Waived adoption fees for all mixed-breed dogs 5 months and older and 25 pounds and over, as well as waived adoption fees for all mixed-breed cats 5 months and older. Not only do you get a pet that is microchipped, vaccinated, spayed or neutered and vetted, but you’ll also go home with a gift bag full of enrichment toys, treats and supplies. The Humane Society of Southern Arizona has more than 300 pets that need to find forever homes.
• Friday, March 22, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Free adoptions start at 11 a.m., but enjoy the fun as we extend our hours through 7 p.m. Kids can participate in a coloring contest and the whole family can enjoy free tropical eegee’s drinks (little umbrellas, flowers and leis included) starting at 4 p.m.
• Saturday, March 23, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Tucson’s scrumptious Food Truck Roundup will kick-off the weekend with a parking lot full of gourmet grub on the go from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Kids can enjoy a coloring contest while families mingle with adoptable pets during meet and greet time.
• Sunday, March 24, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The main shelter’s adoption lobby will be open early, at 10 a.m. Enjoy free cupcakes adorned with sugar puppies and have the kids participate in critter‐themed activities. Plus, every adopter will go home with a free cookbook featuring recipes for people and pets – in addition to a gift bag and a free new best friend!
The adoption specials will be available at all HSSA adoption locations, but come to our main shelter (at 3450 N. Kelvin Blvd.) for all the spring-themed fun!
