Happy Monday but not if you are one of the several dogs at risk for being euthanized tonight (Monday – July 8 – 7 pm) at Pima Animal Care Center (PACC) for various reasons if foster homes are not found.
Consider fostering a dog or adopting a dog! There are senior dogs and young dogs and in between dogs. There are big dogs and small dogs. Something for everyone. Check them out here. Follow on Facebook for up to the minute info.
Update: Tucson Cold Wet Noses will pay for the medical for Mr. Lucky (Valley Fever, house-broken, crate trained, good with kids & dogs) and for Cinnamon (ear infection/possible eye infection, house trained, good with dogs/cats) so if that is what is holding you back from adoption these awesome dogs, the vet care will be taken care of for these medical conditions. Update: Cinnamon is adopted!
Visit these dogs now, today, pronto at 4000 N. Silverbell Road. You just might fall in love with your new best friend. All are adoptable for the cost of a license only. Please share this blog post far and wide!
Dog Walkers Needed
Currently at PACC, there are 200 dogs that need to be walked. Dog walks and interaction with volunteers are so important to a dog’s physical and mental health as the kennels become more crowded, the dogs stress levels are significantly higher, resulting in more dogs getting sick and more dogs fighting.
If you’re interested in becoming a dog walker, check out the calendar for the next orientation (July 27 from 11 am to noon/no pre-sign-up required) or you can contact PACC now and be paired with an experienced dog walker to learn the ropes. Please contact José Ocaño, Volunteer Coordinator, if you are available to pair with an experienced dog walker now/243-5920.
A Hero Dog Needs Your Vote
The Arizona Daily Star did a heart-warming story on PACC/Adopt-a-Bull alumni Booker who has been nominated as a Hero Dog but he needs your vote. Please read the story, vote, and share it with your friends and family. If Booker wins, $5,000 is donated to his favorite charity.
