Help the Humane Society Win $5k—We're in Second Place!

Posted By on Thu, Jul 23, 2015 at 4:00 PM

If you Like the Humane Society of Southern Arizona on Facebook, then you already know that our fair city has been nominated as a “Top City for Pets” by PetSmart’s The winning city (we're one of five finalists) will receive a $5,000 dollar donation for a local animal shelter. That's pretty cool, right?

Well, we received an email saying Tucson is currently a very (That's right they said "very," underline and all) close second to Austin, Texas. We can't let those Texan fools win, so get voting!

In another sunny U.S. city — Tucson, Arizona — dogs reign supreme. This Arizona city has approximately 30 pet­friendly restaurants, six off­leash areas and 90 pet­friendly hotel options. With around 350 sunny days a year, Tucson is one of the sunniest cities in the U.S., which makes it a great place to go explore some of the many outdoor areas available to all pups. Then, after a long day of hitting the great outdoors, owners can lavish their dogs or cats with relaxing treatments at one of the tons of different spa and pet boutiques in the area. And fear not – all breeds are welcome in Tucson. In fact, the city hosts an annual Pitbulooza specifically to honor National Pit Bull Awareness Day.
