McDuff’s mother, Maya, was found at Pima Animal Care Center in a very pregnant state. FAIR (Foundation for Animals in Risk) is a firm believer the answer to overpopulation is to spay and neuter, so Maya came into foster care to have her kittens.
Once the kittens were weaned and ready for neuter, the family of kittens and Mamma cat all put on their Sunday best and went to the vet. All were screened for Feline’s Aid and Leukemia, given booster, rabies vaccine, and had surgery to break the reproductive cycle.
Let’s stop the overpopulation of animals in our Tucson community. Animals roam the streets getting injured or becoming ill. FAIR strongly believes no animal should die for lack of room.
How can you help FAIR?
–Make a donation to the spay and neuter fund
–Volunteer once a month at a FAIR adoption site
–Foster a beautiful cat or dog.
–Call 520-722-3553 to get more information.
For the month of February you can also buy a gorgeous bracelet ($20) where all proceeds from the sale, go directly to helping FAIR’s mission.
More info for where to buy bracelets. The fundraiser for FAIR ends Feb. 29 at 11:59 p.m.

Look at that happy face! Just two short months ago Carlton, was lying on the floor of the shelter totally shutdown. He wouldn’t walk on a leash and the only way FAIR volunteers got this sweet guy out of Pima Animal Care Center was carry him to the car.
FAIR knew he was deaf and had their work predetermined. He was placed in foster care and learned his cues from the other animals in the home. He learned it was okay to be on a leash and that people are good to him. The first day up for adoption, the perfect family who own a deaf cat came in to visit. He went on a home visit to meet their dog and the rest is history.
Carlton has been given a second chance with someone who understands what deafness is all about. FAIR is all about giving animals in need a second chance. Our foster care volunteers are special caring people that want to save every animals they can. If you want to help, please call FAIR at 520-722-3553. The more foster care volunteers, the better the chances to help more animals.

NoMa was found by a FAIR volunteer at her workplace. Extremely small she and her littermate were scooped up in a net and placed in a box. Her eyes were matted shut with infection and she was taken to the FAIR Feline Director’s house where she was cared for her infection and bottle fed until she could eat on her own.
NoMa fits in the palm of a hand. The name NoMa came to mind as it designates that this sweet little kitten had no mother. Fortunately, NoMa recently was adopted from a PetSmart meet & greet site.
NoMa is a small representation of the many cats and kittens that are adopted through FAIR each year. The amount of cats and dogs in foster care are limited only by the number of volunteers on hand who will open their hearts and homes to these beautiful orphans.
What a lovely story. The Beading Divas enjoy happy endings. Don’t you?
Can you help be a foster care volunteer?

What a sad story about one of our beloved greyhounds.
She came to Arizona Greyhound Rescue in Feb. 18, 2011 without paperwork, without racing history. She was adopted soon thereafter.
Earlier this year was rebounded back because of some family issues. It happens during these tough economic times. She luckily went to foster care with Shirley S.
Last week Luna who was known as Tulip went to the Rainbow Bridge; she was only 2 years old. She died from Lupus, an autoimmune disease.
Lupus attacks the immune system and views the total body as an “invader.” She was fostered and given extensive medical care, but the Lupus won out in the end.
She is now running free.
Rest in peace dear sweet Luna Tulip.

Beading Divas to the Rescue is proud to announce that during the month of February we will be selling bracelets to benefit FAIR – Foundation for Animals at Risk. FAIR is based in Tucson.
Who says dogs don’t have guardian angels? Boo Boo definitely would disagree.
A good Samaritan found him with multiple wounds (suggestive of dog fights), a crudely amputated leg, and extremely underweight. Boo Boo’s angel took him home with no means to take care of him. A second angel found the listing on Craig’s List and took the dog to the veterinarian. She started the wheels turning to find a rescue group willing to take this gentle and sweet guy with all his medical needs.
That was the first of December and Boo Boo has been healing ever since.
Of course the animal cruelty incident was reported and an active investigation is ongoing.
The organization 88 Crime is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the person or persons who did this to Boo Boo. He is estimated to be 2 or 3 years old and one of the few lucky ones to have lived through his ordeal.
This determined, sweet dog has exceptional house manners and is happy to be with his foster parents. He loves his foster home and the support he is given. Boo Boo has gained weight, his wounds are healing, and he learned to climb the stairs on three legs to find his fosters.
He is currently unavailable for adoption because of the active investigation but will someday go to his forever home.
Many ask what they can do to help stop animal cruelty. If you witness an act of cruelty or neglect, call 911 from the proximity of the act to report who, what, where, and when. If you find an animal that you think has been involved in an animal abuse or neglect situation, get the animal to medical attention and report what you found. If you want to remain anonymous you can contact 88 Crime or the Animal Cruelty Task Force. They are not set up as an emergency response team and factors may be delayed to investigate.
