Adopt Cassie

Cassie is full of joy

For the month of September, Beading Divas to the Rescue is excited to be fundraising for Tucson Cold Wet Noses. So far this year this all breed dog rescue has adopted out 77 dogs!

Let’s meet one special fur child named Cassie.

What’s not to love about Cassie?

This 7 year old charmer is a devoted dog. She is wonderful with children older than 10 y.o. and adults. Cassie loves car rides, slow and easy walks and is great on a leash. She is housebroken and crate trained. She has not shown any interest in cats at the boarding facility.

Though Cassie is non reactive to other dogs outside of the home she should be an only dog in the home as she doesn’t like dogs invading her boundaries.

For the person who only wants or can afford one dog — please consider Cassie. With so much love, Cassie, at 70 lbs, has a huge heart and is looking for someone like you to share it with.

To meet this great gal, please call 520-235-6309 today. Please share with others who might be looking for an only dog who is loyal to the core. We know someone special is waiting for Cassie.

So far this year TCWN has adopted out 77 dogs! That is a huge accomplishment. Please consider buying a bracelet or three or making a donation to them directly. Right now their focus is rescuing senior dogs or special needs dogs.

Tucson Cold Wet Noses

Lucky Laila was saved

From Sandi – Cold Wet Noses volunteer

“Layla was a sweet golden mix on the rescue line for kennel cough, of course. She also had obviously had puppies recently and looked very uncomfortable. She got sicker and sicker and wasn’t responding to any meds and on a Saturday I was so sure she wasn’t going to make it that I begged the vet (with CWN approval) to try to do something. I can’t remember the sequence of events exactly but they ended up doing an emergency spay because she had pyometra, an infected uterus which happens sometimes after giving birth.

Turns out she also had pneumonia along with the kennel cough and Valley fever. She was one of our $800 dogs that we thought only had kennel cough. So Layla had a very rough time of it but came through. She still comes to visit for vacations with her roomie Honey. She’s one of the sweetest dogs ever and her new family loves her to pieces!”

This is an example of what Cold Wet Noses does — they save dogs!

May is Cold Wet Noses month where all bracelet sales benefit this very worthy charity.

We courage you to buy a bracelets ($20) to benefit their cause or simply make a donation to them.

Coiled bracelets are one-of-a-kind made with donated beads; one size fits most. Bracelets come with a paw charm.

You can also buy bracelets online (add $5.50 S&H). All bracelets sales sold online will be matched by an anonymous Cold Wet Noses adopter. So, one bracelet for $20 translates into $40 to CWN. It’s a generous offer and an encouragement to shop online.

Otis and Sampson are rescues

Otis and Sampson are rescues

A story from Sandi, foster volunteer for Tucson Cold Wet Noses

“I was at PACC picking up a dog for someone when I saw a gorgeous terrified dog being taken to the back. I had never seen one so frightened. PACC personnel were literally having to drag him back and his tail was completely between his legs. I asked what his future held and was told that he would be temperament tested.

I was worried for him so the next day I asked Signe (Tucson Cold Wet Noses president) to check on him for me. It took her a while to find him and when she did he was already labeled as a fear biter possibility and scheduled to be euthanized.

She asked them to test him again and had to sign a special waiver but brought him home for me.

He is one of the most unique looking dogs I’ve every seen – golden eyes that don’t seem to blink. He looks very intimidating but that dog has never once in his life even lifted his lip at a person; he just has to stare them down! He ended up with a horrible case of dog flu or maybe distemper. I don’t remember if it ever got diagnosed but he came very close to dying and took a lot of nursing and TLC.
This was after just one day at PACC.

This is one more lesson in why dogs should be kept up to date on vaccinations-he probably would have been fine if his owner had made sure he was up to date before they walked in and surrendered him. He was adopted by someone that didn’t work out and we took him back and then a friend of mine agreed to foster Otis until he was adopted again, but of course, Chris fell in love with Otis and kept him.

Now Otis and his buddy Sampson are inseparable.” (Otis is on the left in the photo above.)

A happy ending. The Beading Divas to the Rescue LOVE happy endings!

Looking for my furever home

Looking for my furever home

A message from Signe Razzi, president Tucson Cold Wet Noses:

I went to PACC one morning to take the dogs in sick bay out for a breath of fresh air as we try to do three times a week. Sick Bay was full and they needed to make room for more dogs that had come down with an upper respiratory infection which is very common in shelters.

Some dogs were sitting in the Euthanasia Bay kennels till they could shuffle some things around and see what they could do. This meant that perhaps a few of the dogs in sick bay might go back on the adoption line if their antibiotics had done the job or that some might get put down for behavior (some dogs
do not do well in confinement, get too frustrated and then don’t get along well with other dogs). This would open up some space for new dogs.

I was told that there was a dog named Shy Boy who was having a hard time on the adoption line so would probably do worse in sick bay. That was the end of that conversation for the moment. I didn’t realize that meant he was going to get put down.

I started taking the sick dogs out to the yards with a couple of other volunteers which takes us about
3 hours as there are usually 32 to 35 dogs in there. About halfway through I decided to go check out Shy Boy so I walked back towards the Euthanasia area and the door was closed. I asked a staff member if I could see Shy Boy and she went in and came out and said he was unavailable. I asked her what she meant by that and she told me to go find the animal advocate so off I went in search of him.

It is a large facility but fortunately I found him within 5 minutes.

He went in, came out and told me I could see him but he had already been sedated and was out so I wouldn’t be able to interact with him.

I saw Shy Boy passed out on the floor and looked at him for a minute and said “I’ll take him”. So he came home with me about an hour later and a bit on the groggy side, probably didn’t know what hit him.

He escaped death by 5 minutes and had I waited till I was done with Sick Bay he would have been dead so Shy Boy has a Fairy Dogmother that was watching over him and now he is healthy, neutered and waiting for his furever home.

He is a bit of a rascal but he is a sweet dog who will make someone a good pet and he is still on the shy side.

Coiled bracelets are one-of-a-kind made with donated beads; they come with a paw charm.

Adopt MeMe - 6 year old German Shepherd dog

Beading Divas to the Rescue is very proud to be raising funds for Tucson COLD WET NOSES for May 2012.

Cold Wet Noses started in 2005 but became an official non profit in 2010. Since their inception they have rehomed approximately 1,650 dogs!

Cold Wet Noses Tucson takes dog from Pima Animal Care Center (PACC) and finds foster and adoptable homes for them, usually at the 11th hour.

In 2011, Cold Wet Noses

–Rehomed 366 dogs in 2011 (a dog a day!)

–$42,000 of veterinarian bills

–Paid $6,100 for dog food, medications and other pet supplies

–CWN also receives dog food donations from PET CLUB and/or buys it from Costco. Currently they have 57 foster homes but the number changes daily

Cold Wet Noses Wish List

–more fold down wire crates – mostly size medium
–another pop up tent for adoption events
–a storage shed
–more volunteers to help walk dogs at PACC

One-of-a-kind bracelets cost $20 and every bracelet comes with a paw charm. Bracelets make great heartfelt gifts for MOTHERS DAY on May 13. The entire $20 goes directly to CWN. You can pay with cash or check made out directly to the charity. Be generous!

You can buy bracelets locally at:
Silver Sea Jewelry & Gifts, 330 N. 4th Avenue, 624-9954

Mighty Mouse - Adopt Me!

Tucson Cold Wet Noses Fosters is a small group of individuals who take in the dogs that are scheduled to be euthanized on any given day from Pima Animal Care Center (PACC). The dogs are on this list due to illness, shyness or some issue that deems them unadoptable under PACC’s policies. Cold Wet Noses take them in, gets them well, socializes them and gets to know their needs and personalities so that the best match between dog and adopter can be made. CWN dogs come spayed or neutered, up to date on their vaccines and microchipped.

Cold Wet Noses does not have a facility. Our pets are spread throughout the city in people’s homes, hence, CWN is all about fostering dogs and adopting dogs. There is an adoption event every Sunday at the Petco on Broadway @ Craycroft from noon until 4 p.m where you can meet several foster dogs available for adoption.

There are young, middle aged and older dogs, some small dogs but mostly larger,hairy mutts. CWN is a non-profit organization and a bunch of dog lovers who are trying to help as many wayward furry souls as we can. Some of our dogs are special needs dogs meaning they may have some long term health issues (valley fever or arthritis for instance) or some personality quirk (shy or wary of men). We love each and every foster and consider them to be part of the family so will NOT adopt dogs who will be yard dogs only.

The more Cold Wet Noses can adopt, the more they can continue to save unwanted dogs on the brink of death at PACC.

CWN appreciates people who are willing to give their new pet a chance to adjust to their new home but we also want the right match for the two of you, so things are not working out, CWN reserves first rights to taking the dog back. (If you know of someone else who would love the dog, let CWN know.)

CWN will work with you to find the right dog. There is a 3-day adoption fee back trial period.

Thank you for adopting an orphaned pet and not buying one when there is such a need and so many discarded pets. A wagging tail awaits you.

If you are interested in becoming a member of Cold Wet Noses, please visit the website, http://www.TucsonColdWetNoses.com and complete a foster or adoption application.

If you cannot adopt or cannot foster, consider buying a bracelet or donating to Cold Wet Noses directly. You can buy bracelets at Silver Sea Jewelry & Gifts, 330 N. 4th Avenue (624-9954) or at Desert Rose Homeopathics, 2501 E. Ft. (phone number).

If you’re not local to these Tucson locations, buy bracelets online via Etsy.com ($3 shipping & handling).
