JoJo, a Giant Kitty Save by Friends of PACC 2015/12/14

Beading Divas to the Rescue

abandoned fat cat

It was the middle of Tucson’s sweltering hot summer when one of PACC’s Animal Care Officers went to rescue JoJo, who weighed a whopping 29 pounds, from outside an apartment complex where he had been abandoned.

The obese cat was lethargic, panting and in obvious distress.

The officer brought JoJo back to PACC and right into the ICU. The donations from the Friends of PACC meant that one of the shelter’s veterinarians, Dr. Sarah Rios, could immediately give the overheated feline emergency care. She and her technicians worked to administer IV fluids, give him a cooling shave, and provide watchful, supportive care for several days while JoJo regained his health.

Thanks for saving me!

After JoJo health was stable, he went into foster care. He regained strength, lost weight and soon found a loving family.

WISHLIST
Monetary donations to the Friends of PACC will be used where the shelter’s pets need them the most. If you wish to make an in-kind gift of supplies to help the pets of Pima Animal Care Center, we suggest you look at the shelter’s Amazon Wish List: . Shelter staffers update the list weekly to reflect the pets’ most pressing needs, and your donations will be shipped right to the shelter’s doors.

The above written by Karen Hollish.

Friends of PACC helped Honey

Honey is calm

Because of FRIENDS OF PACC, a special fund through the Community Foundation of Southern Arizona, some dogs at PACC are able to calm down from kennel stress by receiving an anti-anxiety aid that is not funded by PACC. Here is one dog’s story:

Helping PACC Dogs Cope with Shelter Stress
By Karen Hollish, director, Friends of PACC

Soon after she started working for Pima Animal Care Center this summer, Dr. Karyn Carlson came to us with an urgent request. She’d noticed many dogs who were exceptionally stressed in PACC’s old and overcrowded shelter, and she suspected that Trazodone, a gentle anti-anxiety aid that she’d prescribed to dogs in other settings, could help many of them cope.

With support from friends like you, we were able to grant PACC a 3-month supply of the medication, which the county cannot currently buy. Dr. Carlson tells us the gift is helping the shelter save the lives of dozens of dogs who are showing signs of shelter stress like self-injury, attempted biting and storm anxiety.

Friends of PACC

high anxiety Honey

One such dog is Honey, a young greyhound / pit bull mix whose first family surrendered her to PACC due to their allergies. When we first met Honey, she was cowering in the back of her kennel. Her adoptability seemed low, but after Dr. Carlson put her on a Trazodone regimen, Honey began to come out of her shell.

Honey eventually caught the attention of Linda B., an Oro Valley resident who took Honey home. On her first night home, Linda gave Honey one calming Trazodone dose to help her settle in.

After that, Linda said, Honey didn’t need the medication, as she adjusted perfectly to life outside of the shelter — just as our doctors had predicted.

“Thank you so much,” Linda said. “I really love this animal.”

Today Dr. Carlson said the Medical Team is working with PACC volunteers to identify other dogs who might need a little help weathering shelter stress.

“The Trazodone pilot is going great,” Dr. Carlson tells us. “Our dogs seem to be responding very well to it, and we have several long-termers on it.”

Beading Divas to the Rescue

No animals are turned away

For the month of December, Beading Divas to Rescue is thrilled to be fundraising for Friends of Pima Animal Care Center (PACC).

The Friends of Pima Animal Care Center is a project fund held at the Community Foundation for Southern Arizona. It exists solely to support the work done at the only shelter in Pima County that never turns away a pet in need.

There are many challenges that come with being Pima County’s only open-admission shelter. On an annual basis, PACC cares for more than 20,000 animals, including many who arrive ill, injured or abused. The shelter routinely reaches overflow conditions, and even with a much-needed new shelter approved by voters in November 2014, the needs often outstrip available resources – which is where community support makes a huge difference.

The Friends of PACC fills critical resource shortages that the county can’t fill.

Recent investments include the purchase of a dental x-ray machine, so that PACC’s vets can save the lives of senior pets and pets who suffered oral trauma; the purchase of long-acting pain medications, so that cats who undergo major surgeries recover in the most comfortable way; and the purchase of the most effective compounding de-wormer, so that all baby animals surrendered to PACC have the best chance of staying healthy and finding a forever home.

Stay tuned as we will be sharing stories for how Friends of PACC are helping the animals.

Tucson 2 Tails fundraiser

Adopt Me!

Meet TAZ

Domestic Short Hair • Adult • Male (2 years old)

Taz is a very independent young male with a dominant personality and the most gorgeous green eyes. Actor Paul Newman had gorgeous blue eyes. Taz is the Paul Newman of cats with his gorgeous eyes.

He likes to play and talk with his people. He is a lover…loves to rub his face up against your hands and legs. His soft black coat is white underneath.

Did you know black cats are 50% less likely to be adopted than other cats? There is really no difference between a black cat and other cats except black cats have been associated with bad luck and witchcraft, resulting in them being harder to adopt. Help us break this cycle, adopt a black cat and find love. Adopt Taz, razzamaTAZ.

Adopt Willy - Tucson Tails

Willy is looking for his forever home!

For the month of November, Beading Divas to the Rescue is excited to be fundraising for Tucson2Tails.

Meet Willy
Domestic Short Hair • Adult • Male (5 years old)

He even has his own billboard as part of the SavetheSaveable campaign.

Handsome, one-eyed Willy is just hoping that you fall in love with him. Willy is a talker and will tell you what he wants you to know. He was found with a possible eye injury due to trauma and his eye was removed by an ophthalmologist, but that doesn’t stop him. Willy likes to play and is very active so he would do best with a buddy of some sort whether that be another cat, dog, kid, or you. He loves wet food and would love a forever home. Will that be you?

Foster Care
Maybe you cannot adopt a cat now but can you provide a temporary companion until a cat or a kitten finds a forever home? Follow T2T’s Facebook page for a current listing of kitties in need. If you have a spare bedroom, a laundry room, or even a bathroom, you can safely temporarily house a couple of kitties.

In the arms of angels

Adopt me!

More about In the Arms of Angels and what a wonderful rescue they are Star light, star bright. Which star will I adopt tonight?

In the Arms of Angels

Mira star

In the Arms of Angels

Adopt me: Polaris

The six scared stars were rescued from a local shelter. These six little stars were at risk of euthanasia for being timid and under-socialized. The stars were divided into three different foster homes to make socializing them easier. The stars were came down with kennel cough and during the course of antibiotic treatments the stars began to shine. They are now happy, healthy, and looking for their forever homes. The stars are just under six months old. (top left: Sirius)

Here is Antares dog star – he looks like a Bengal tiger and gets along with other dogs.

Mira is a gentle girl and has great house manners although she aspires to be a couch potato as she longs to be up on the couch. Perhaps she’s your next lap dog?

Polaris (Polly) prefers laying down and chewing on bones rather than running around with toys, although does enjoy the occasional romp. She often needs guidance from her people before being introduced to new things and people, but quickly becomes comfortable in new settings. She absolutely loves and adores her humans

Rigel, or as his foster moms call him “Mr. Wiggles,” is a happy little guy full of enthusiasim. He loves to play, with other dogs and toys although he may get possessive of his toys around other dogs. He is a little mischievous and always finds a way to entertain himself, whether it’s with a rock or your shoes!

You can find out about all the STARS at In the Arms of Angels and you can help support their efforts by making a direct donation or buying some bracelets.

Bridge Rescue for Dogs Tucson

Lilly says: Adopt me!

Foster-based Tucson Bridge Rescue for Dogs has some amazing rescue stories. Here’s one of them:

Lilly, at approximately 4 years old, was found on the streets and taken to PACC where she was diagnosed with not only heartworm but ringworm as well.

Her physical condition suggests she was used as a breeder dog and then dumped on the streets when someone decided they no longer needed her.

This sweet girl was given only 24 hours to be rescued because PACC cannot maintain ringworm dogs for long due to ringworm’s propensity to spread in the shelter environment. Both her heartworm and ringworm conditions have been fully treated, and she is now ready for her forever family.

Had her foster mom not stepped up, she would have been put down at the shelter, and we would have never had the opportunity to discover what a happy girl she is and how she loves everyone – dogs, kids, cats, you name it.

She would love to have a lap to call her own. Lilly is crate-trained, house-trained, vaccinated, spayed, microchipped, and ready to go to a home that will spoil her rotten.
