Burrita Needs a Home

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


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)

Beth Needs a Home

Posted By on Tue, May 31, 2016 at 1:00 PM

Hi, I'm Beth!

I'm a sweet mama, hoping that someone will open their heart and home to me. I'm very sweet to people when I warm up to them and respond well to treats!

I'm only 2 years old so I would love a family who can give me a lot of exercise and play time! Mama dogs tend to spend a longer time in the shelter, but I'm hoping that if you share my post, I can be adopted this week!

Contact Humane Society of Southern Arizona at 327-6088 to check on my availability and exact location!

Lots of love,
Beth (82260)

A Blind Pup and His Guide Dog/Best Friend Need a Home

Posted By on Wed, May 25, 2016 at 1:30 PM

Meet Fubu and Cheerio!
Cheerio, a beautiful 8 year-old male German shepherd, has no eyes. His glaucoma was neglected for more than three years, and both of his eyes were removed to relieve his pain. 

He gets by with help from his friend and companion, Fubu, who serves as Cheerio's eyes. 

Fubu is a 7 year-old Labrador retriever mix, with a history of dental disease. Like Cheerio, he was a backyard dog surrendered to Pima Animal Control.

The two depend on each other and are completely inseparable. Their bond is so strong that Pima Animal Care Center has decided to make them a bonded pair, meaning the pups are looking for a home together.  

As PACC put it in a press release, "Cheerio—literally—gets his sense of direction from Fubu; Fubu gets his strength and confidence from Cheerio."

Tempted? PACC has this to add: "Blind dogs can teach people about courage, joy and love: Imagine the loyalty and happiness these two will bring you!"

For more information on Fubu and Cheerio contact:

Pima Animal Care Center, 4000 North Silverbell Road, 724-5900
Call shelter manager Jose Ocano, 724-5908

Patchouli Needs a Home

Posted By on Mon, May 23, 2016 at 3:00 PM


Hi, I'm Patchouli!

I'm a 10 year old little calico cat who needs a home. I look a little bit different with my crumpled ears and I have a little bobbed tail.

I love people and being snuggled, I practically beg for attention from anyone who walks by my kennel. I'm very affectionate and will make a great addition to a home with a family!

If you're looking for a sweet, unique kitty come over to PAWSH at La Encantada​ to meet me! Don't forget that because of my age you can expect a "senior" adoption fee, which is only $50!

Hope to see you soon!

Lots of love ,

Midnight Needs a Home

Posted By on Mon, May 9, 2016 at 12:18 PM


Meow! I'm Midnight.

I'm a 3 year playful boy and I need a home. I love attention from people and will run right up to you for pets on my head and scratches on my chin.

I tested positive for FeLV, but that doesn't mean that I don't deserve a good home! If you're interested in me, but have current cats don't worry: The Humane Society of Southern Arizona will test and vaccinate them at no cost to you to make sure that all your pets stay happy, safe and healthy!

If you're looking to brighten your home with a social and lovable cat contact the Main Campus at 327-6088 to check on my availability and exact location!

Lots of love,
Midnight (823366)
