Rita is a gentle soul
, a Border Collie/Shepherd mix who is good with cats, dogs and kids. She has typical Border Collie intelligence, is a quick learner and loyal. She loves to flirt and her forever home should have a 4-legged playmate. Rita is spayed, up-to-date with routine shots, house trained, and has a short coat.

Lisa, a Whippet/Lab mix
was born approx 2006. She was rescued from a village in Sells called Little Tucson along with her litter mates. She loves to play with the other dogs but has had very little interaction with people as a puppy and is very timid. Lisa needs a home with understanding, patient people who will show her what it means to be part of a family. With the right family Lisa will grown into the loving, trusting, beautiful lady she was born to be. Lisa has been spayed, vaccinated, and micro chipped. She is house trained, prefers a home without cats and young children. Her adoption fee is $95.
Animals’ Crusaders of Arizona is the beneficiary of Beading Divas to the Rescue during the month of April 2011. All bracelet sales go to helping the good deeds of ACoF.

Skylar will be 5 years old in May so let’s give this Greyhound a home before his birthday. This beautiful fawn male tends to be a bit shy especially around men and is definitely not an alpha male. According to his foster family, Skylar needs another dog for companionship and doesn’t like the vacuum cleaner. Skylar is not crated, eats well, tolerates grooming and is healthy. He loves his walks and is well behaved on the leash. He is still in training to respond to basic commands. He is not cat or small dog tolerant. Adoption fee: $195

Skipper is clearly a Dachshund, with maybe some mixing. He loves to walk on his leash, but has not yet mastered the straight line. He is responsive and curious and loves any attention. Skipper is about eight or ten months old, expected to remain short and has a short brown and black coat. He has been neutered and all shots are current. His adoption fee is $125.

Marina is a very interestingly marked black and white girl. She is probably a black Lab mix, but has spots on her legs that suggest Dalmatian heritage, too. Marina is a very responsive and curious girl, who is learning to play well with other
dogs her size or larger. She walks well on a leash, when she is not distracted. She is about 5 months old now with expectation to be a medium sized dog, with short coat. She has been spayed and all shots are current; adoption fee is $125.
Any SCHS dogs/cats can be brought to PetSmart at Grant and Swan Road in Tucson on Saturdays upon request.
