Angie Cat - Adoptable

Angie Cat – Adoptable

PAWSitively Cats is a cage-free No-Kill cat shelter located in Tucson, AZ. Currently, there are more than 300 cats on the premises. What’s your pleasure? What about short-haired, long-haired, black/white/grey/orange/tabby and calico cats? There are Manx cats, one-eyed cats, cats with diabetes, and cats with feline leukemia. PAWSitively Cats has cats in all colors and stripes. MEOW!

PAWSitively Cats has the following goals:

To eventually acquire property and build appropriate facilities to house rescued cats. The housing will accommodate three separate groups: cats available for adoption, feral or other non-social cats, and leukemia positive cats.

To set up and maintain a comprehensive Trap-Neuter-Release (TNR) program.

To establish a program to educate elementary and middle school aged students in responsible pet ownership; launch a program of elder care visitation to promote companionship and adoption; and maintain a “bird seed to horse feed” food bank for all sizes of domestic animals.

You can help PAWSitvely Cats by buying a bracelet or three or making a direct donation.

Adopt me!

Adopt me!

Many people have heard about the 60 cats that HOPE rescued this fall from Pima Animal Care Center (PACC).

A decision had been made at PACC to euthanize all of the cats because of few in the room were ill.

HOPE stepped up and saved all of the cats.  Some have been adopted, but most are still awaiting a place to call home, including this beautiful girl.

Silverbelle is a gentle and easygoing feline, fine with other cats and happy to meet new people.  After being homeless and then spending time in two shelters, she would love to know the peace and comfort of a loving family and home.

This is just one HOPE Animal Shelter story. There are many. For the month of November, the Beading Divas are selling beautiful, handmade one-of-a-kind bracelets to benefit HOPE. Bracelets cost $20/each and the entire amount goes to HOPE.

You can buy bracelets in Tucson at:

Silver Sea Jewelry & Gifts, 330 N. 4th Avenue in the 4th Avenue Shopping District, 520-624-9954


Sissy’s Pet Grooming Salon, 7350 N. La Cholla Blvd (@ Ina/Albertsons Shopping Center), 520-229-9898

Or you can buy them online via Etsy.com (add $4 for S&H)

If you don’t want a bracelet but want to help out the charity, please visit their website.

Tucson: Yappy News You Can Use

Good News
Lush Cosmetics in the UK started a wonderful campaign to educate the public about why they shouldn’t bet on the dogs and greyhound adoption awareness. Kudos to Lush! Watch the beautiful video.

Bad News
45  racing greyhounds belonging to a trainer from the Ebro Dog Track in Florida starved to death. That’s an unspeakable crime. There’s much finger pointing going on as people complained about the smell but nobody investigated. Finally, GPA-EC (Emerald Coast) reported it and thank you for that. Ebro is a seasonal track which recently closed. Read more and find out what you can do to end the cruel sport of greyhound racing.
