The high number of animal shelters that exist in the area is encouraging the overall dog friendliness, as well!
HOPE Animal Shelter, the first no-kill shelter for dogs and cats in Tuscon, got its start in 2006. This establishment believes that animals deserve exactly what their shelter is called - Hope! The organization runs a no-kill, cage-free haven for abandoned animals while they await their new, fur-ever homes! They also provide them with medical care, socialization, and compassion.
Tucson isn't lacking for pet rescue organizations, though. Other organizations like Ruff Rescue Tuscon, The Humane Society of Southern Arizona, and Pima Paws for Life all offer pups - and cats, too - second-chances at life by providing them with medical care, a place to live comfurrtably off the streets, fostering opportunities, and compassion.
For $10, you and Fido can get a digital copy of your bonding moment with the big guy. All proceeds will benefit the Humane Society of Southern Arizona. Ho, Ho, Woof!
This annual event is made for pups and their people to walk, jog, sprint, trot, or just waddle along, a two-mile, or a one-mile route. You and your pup can meet hundreds of other doggo-lovers at this run-and-walk-event, and even stick around after for a doggie-festival! The dog festival is free to attend and will include prices, dog arts & crafts, dog costume contests, training, and even 20 local dog organizations giving out free puppy swag! Don't miss this fun event for you and your pup!
