Max is large and in charge! This 20-pound love sponge likes to be king of the castle and hopes someone welcomes him home with great fanfare soon.

If you could give Max serenity and peace of mind in his golden years, please visit this charming kitty today at the Humane Society of Southern Arizona.
***As part of the Humane Society of Southern Arizona’s year-end special, Max has a waived adoption fee! Visit HSSA at 3450 N. Kelvin Blvd. or online.

The Southern Arizona Humane Society presents Noah, a 5-year-old Pit Bull Mix
Reference no: 763092
With an unforgettable face, a larger-than-life personality and a heart of pure gold, Noah is one in a million! This tough cookie was found wandering a Texas Air Force base in sweltering summer heat with a missing eye, a benign tumor and a severe case of tick fever. Lucky for Noah, a kind pilot flew him to Tucson in hopes of finding her new friend the perfect life. During his stay at the Humane Society of Southern Arizona, Noah has quickly become a staff and volunteer favorite. He’s extremely loyal to those he trusts and has just the right amount of energy. He’ll make you laugh with a spontaneous case of the zoomies and then be perfectly content to sleep at your feet all day. As a special guest in HSSA offices, Noah has transformed from a starving wildling who survived by eating out of dumpsters to a perfect companion whose sole mission is to make you smile. In exchange for his undying devotion, all Noah asks in return is to be your only pet. Noah cannot be around cats and is testy with most dogs. This human-centered pooch just wants to be a single homebody who lavishes his family in love. If you could offer Noah a life free from worry, please ask to meet him today at the Humane Society of Southern Arizona. There’s no better time since the Humane Society has waived his adoption fee. Plus, Noah will go home with a basket full of goodies! Contact HSSA at 327-6088 at 3450 N. Kelvin Blvd.
Simply put, it is time we decide whether the wagons rides should continue with mules at the front or is it time to convert to vehicles out of respect for the safety of those on our wagons, people walking around in winterhaven, and our mules. We love our mules. We love having them in winterhaven. We love promoting the beauty and work ethic of the mules. We love advocating for their amazing talents by driving them in winterhaven. However, as heartbreaking and disappointing as it is, we believe that change is inevitable.
Will you guys support this effort of change towards a safer Festival of Lights? We believe so! We have faith in you! The Food Bank has faith in you! Still, the biggest question of all is will we be making the right choice? Will we be able to sleep at night?
I know I will…
But I’ll cry a little for the winds of change…. Julie...
The Pima County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to allocate $401, 200 to the Pima Animal Care Center (PACC) on Tuesday, Nov. 5. The funds were allocated in order to expand the PACC’s shelter facilities and provide additional kennel capacity. The shelter has been facing rampant overcrowding due to the recent spike in the numbers of homeless pets in the Pima County area.
“Due to the overcrowding (PACC) is not a safe-haven right now,” said Cindy Kurland, a PACC volunteer. “The fights are constant, the stress is high, you have four or five dogs (to a kennel)... and you have dogs getting injured seriously because they’re trying to eat their breakfast.” Because of limited space and resources, and under conditions rife with stress and fear, many dogs are becoming violent and hostile during their time spent in the kennels and with other dogs. The reality of what is happening behind closed doors and cages at PACC comes as a stark contrast to the traditional state of the shelter, which has for many years served as a place of refuge for homeless pets, due to the shelter’s abhorrence of euthanasia.
“Keep in mind, this is not because PACC has bad dogs,” Kurland said. “These are good, happy, healthy dogs and cats that are coming in the door, that aren’t getting the proper care because of the limited staff and (being crammed) into kennels.”
The Humane Society of Southern Arizona presents Daisy, a 5-year-old Dachshund mix
Reference no. 766654
Daisy says, “Pick me!” This spunky sweetheart could sure use a good friend after her beloved owner passed away. Daisy was delivered to another shelter but wasn’t doing well, so she came to the Humane Society of Southern Arizona for a chance to shine. Daisy is feeling better day by day and lets her cares melt away whenever she’s racing around the yard. She’s always animated, adventurous and ready to play. Although Daisy absolutely adores her human friends, she is choosy about her dog pals and would prefer to be your only pet. Just you, a couch and some toys would be a dream come true for this darling Dachshund. If you could give Daisy the fresh start and unconditional love she deserves, please visit this peppy princess today at the Humane Society of Southern Arizona. As a Hidden Gem, Daisy spends her time in staff offices, so please ask an adoption counselor to meet her. Visit HSSA at 3450 N. Kelvin Blvd.
***Daisy has a waived adoption fee and will go home with goodies and free training classes!

Greetings from the Rainbow Bridge...
'Tis Grand here...I did a lot of frolicking today...Whilst frolicking I was thinking of giving back in a Giant way.
Here's what I am thinking:
November 17 marks my 8th birthday, and although I cannot be there in body, I can be there in spirit. I would like to make November 17 Giant George Service Day...a day for GG Nation to honor my spirit by giving of their time and/or shekels to an animal cause that is important to each of you.
Your time and/or your money will make a big difference in an animals life...
Help me make November 17 Giant George Service Day by sharing with your fellow humanoids and making something Giant happen!
Miss you like Costco roasted chicken, GG
