Tucson Tails: Two 10 yr old Lab Mixes – Rescued!by Karyn Zoldan on Apr. 27, 2013, under Animal News, Dogs, Canines, Fun with Fido, Barking Encouraged
Often times when Tucson Tails writes about urgent dogs needing to get out of PACC (Pima Animal Care) because they are going to be euthanized — I don’t know what the outcome is.
Sometimes it’s just too painful to know. When I do know, I try to update the blog post.
In this case, here’s something to celebrate — the two 10 year old Lab mix dogs, Tanner and Red, have been adopted!
I found that out on Facebook this past Thursday and immediately did a tearful (tears of joy) happy dance. Such relief! I had heard through the Facebook grapevine that someone I know (Alice, a greyhound adopter) would’ve fostered them but an adoption is so much better.
In my previous blog post, I mentioned that whoever adopted these two dogs would get a bag of dog food. Today I followed up.
The people pictured above are Bill and Karen Bowe. They own the Poster Warehouse & Framing Gallery located at 2900 E. Broadway Blvd.
The Bowes heard about the Labs from their friend Larry Franks who is a PACC volunteer. He called them to say the old Labs needed a home and it was dire. How could they resist?
Red and Tanner are being treated by a local vet and on their way to a good rest of their life. Yowza!
In the above photo is Artie, a newly rescued PACC dog too. All their dogs are rescues. I am quite sure our paths will cross again. They requested that instead of me buying them a bag of dog food, I help another senior dog and I will. Meeting them made my day!
There are so many adoptable PACC pets, check them out.
