Pets available at the Humane Society of Southern Arizona
Fred – #735019 – 28 Years Old – Moluccan Cockatoo – Male
Meet Fred, a boisterous bird with personality galore. Surrendered to the HSSA when he started attacking the young children in the family, Fred is now in need of an avian-experienced owner prepared to commit to a lifetime of patience, love and care. Although he’s a little standoffish at first, Fred bonds closely with people who take the time to earn his trust. Offer him a gentle head rub and Fred will waltz over to you with his head down, his beak softly clacking and his gorgeous pink feathers all fluffed up. Whoever ends up with this guy will have a real sweetheart, but they may also have to invest in a lot of earplugs! A typical cockatoo, Fred requires plenty of daily attention and enrichment. But he’s is gaga for toys, cardboard boxes, popcorn and vegetables. If you are interested in sharing your life with this intelligent, animated special companion and are aware of the serious responsibility, please visit Fred today at the Humane Society of Southern Arizona.
Buddy – #723596 – 1 Year Old – Shepherd Mix – Male
Buddy had a horrendous start to life, confined for most of his first year to a tool shed. But enough of that! Buddy would prefer to focus on his bright future. This fun-loving bundle of cheer is now letting loose and kicking up his heels with trusted friends. He greatly enjoys palling around with the other dogs and showering his caregivers in unconditional love. All in all, Buddy would make a terrific sidekick. He sure hopes you’re looking for one of those! If you’re interested in meeting this very special boy, please visit the Humane Society of Southern Arizona and ask for Buddy.
Update on the HSSA participating in the ASPCA Challenge

For the rest of September, their Pay the Date promotion will determine the price of all mixed-breed, adult dogs over 25 pounds and adult cats. Each day of the month will be the set adoption price of each dog or cat. Also, Scott Lehman of Premier Auto Center is sponsoring all mixed-breed kitten, puppy, cat and dog adoptions this Saturday Sept. 22 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at all locations.
