Here are some dogs & cats available for adoption in Tucson. Do not buy pets from backyard breeders; they are one of the reasons we have so many unwanted animals. Those are the folks who post signs on street corners and Craig’s List to buy pups…boxers, pit bulls, bichons, and more. Reputable breeders don’t advertise on street corners and adoption groups/rescue groups/shelters will always identify themselves as such. There are many wonderful animals looking for good homes. Please consider one of these:
Foxy – #732377 – 1.5 Years Old – Shepherd Mix – Female
Talk about a rough start! Foxy was found limping through rural farmland with a punctured eye, visible ribs, tapeworms and a raging case of tick fever and Valley Fever. It was the peak of summer and Foxy was emaciated, thirsty and exhausted.
Thankfully someone discovered Foxy and delivered her to the HSSA, where she underwent surgery to remove her dead eye and correct the painful condition causing lameness in her hip. After months of foster care, physical therapy and medicine, Foxy is looking and feeling 100% better. Her foster guardian has taken in countless animals over the years and beams that Foxy is the best guest she has ever had.
This appreciative pup is extremely easygoing and has impeccable manners. Now all she wants is a permanent place to call home. Although she will need continued treatment for her Valley Fever and tick Fever, Foxy’s unyielding loyalty is well worth the extra investment. If you would like to meet this very special hidden gem, please call (520)327-6088 to schedule an appointment. You’ll be glad you did!
Emmet – #740633 – 10 Weeks Old – Domestic Short Hair – Male
Meet Emmet, one of the first kittens to become available for adoption since the quarantine for Feline Calicivirus at the HSSA. Emmet is a purrrfectly healthy and happy kitten who grew up as a newborn thanks to the kindness of a homeless person who fed him milk and fast food. Wanting to give the kitten the best chance at a happy life, Emmet’s friend surrendered him to HSSA. This tough little survivor is now available at the La Encantada PAWSH adoption center. He is packed with personality and would absolutely love a feline sibling or two who equally enjoy wresting.
I’m Skeeter! I love to be cuddled and loved as much as possible. My foster mom believes I am a Chihuahua /Schipperke mix and maybe other things. I am a boy, about 4 years old and weigh about 17 lbs. My foster mom rescued me from PACC a few months ago. Look for my name on the list and read all about me.
