If You've Ever Wanted to Adopt a Bonded Pair of Pups, Do It Now

Posted By on Fri, Jun 24, 2016 at 3:00 PM

It's the beginning of summer which means shelters are overcrowded and desperate to find homes for their four-legged boarders.

Two types of animals that are hard to find homes for? Seniors and bonded pairs.
Buster (#180726) is a white Schnauzer
  • Buster (#180726) is a white Schnauzer
Darby Girl, a white and tan Basenji (#180727)
  • Darby Girl, a white and tan Basenji (#180727)

























Meet Darby and Buster. These bonded seniors that are available for adoption at Pinal County Animal Control (1150 S Eleven Mile Corner Road in  Casa Grande. 520-509-3555).

They are both 10 years-old, and were left at the shelter after their owner died. A volunteer at the shelter says, "They are extremely friendly, well-behaved and get along well with other dogs... I think it is important that they stay together as they are so attached to one another, and they have been through so much. PCAC is extremely over-crowded right now and these two seniors are sharing an overcrowded kennel in this heat."

Cinema Clips: Dark Horse

Posted By on Wed, Jun 22, 2016 at 10:00 AM


Whether or not you agree in principle with the notion of racehorses, this is a moving documentary about a group of people in Wales who decide to finance one. They eventually succeed with the birth of their horse, Dream Alliance, a gangly youngster who grows up to be a solid jumper.

Through interviews and archive footage, we see the horse from birth straight through to many of his races, where he proved to be an unlikely champion. Of course, tragedy strikes during one of the races, and then the movie becomes the story of an amazing comeback. Or, depending on your point of view, it becomes the story of a bunch of strange folks in Wales pushing a beautiful animal well beyond the point of reason so it can keep jumping for their amusement and wallets.

There’s no denying that Dream Alliance is a beautiful animal, and his story is inspiring. The story of the horse is far more compelling than the story of the folks who owned him. There’s a turning point in this story where the owners probably should’ve put the horse in a field and let him enjoy life, but they keep pushing him. That’s a little bothersome. The end results are uplifting and happy, but they came perilously close to being extremely sad.

The documentary is entertaining, but it will definitely have you thinking about the treatment of animals for sport.

Burrita Needs a Home

Posted By on Tue, Jun 14, 2016 at 11:00 AM

burrita_826267.jpg

Hi, I'm Burrita!

I'm a very sweet and shy 2 year old girl and I need a home. I'm scared here in the shelter and can't wait to be adopted!

I would do great with a family who is willing to help me build my confidence with some positive reinforcement training! I'm very timid so I might need some extra time o get comfortable in a new setting.

If you're patient I might be the perfect pet for your home. I will be very loyal to the right family.

If you're interested in meeting me contact Humane Society of Southern Arizona Main Campus at 327-6088 ext. 173 during regular business hours to check on my availability and exact location!
Lots of love,

Burrita (826267)
