Bracelets benefit Forever Wild (life)

Forever Wild is dedicated to the care of injured, orphaned and sick native Arizona wildlife.  Our goal is to release these animals  back to the wild.  In the event they cannot be released we try to find placement or use them as animal ambassadors for the events and presentations we attend or use them as foster parents for the orphaned ones.  In addition, we are also a sanctuary for ducks, geese, peacocks, other game birds, domestic doves and pigeons.  We try to find suitable homes for these animals.  (Located in Tucson)

You can purchase bracelets online at Etsy.com – Bracelets cost $20 (donated to the charity) + $3 for shipping & handling.

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).

Buy bracelets for Tucson ferrets

About Ferret Friends, Inc:

Ferrets come to the organization in various ways: found loose on the street, left behind when people move, found in dumpsters, found in a carrier left behind at a park, etc.

People contact Ferret Friends because: they’re pregnant, going to college, moving, being deployed, lost their job, allergic, had a baby, don’t have the time anymore, the kids lost interest, they smell, can’t afford the vet bills, etc. Most of the animals surrendered are happy good-natured, friendly pets.

However, some have experienced abuse and starvation. Those ferrets can be with the organization for extended periods of time and are rehabilitated once they understand that humans are a good thing.

Ferret Friends is no-kill rescue and also serves as a hospice for many aged and diseased ferrets. In such cases the ferrets die in our homes and in our arms. Ferrets are only euthanized when the ferret’s health/comfort dictates. Ferrets can live to be 6, 8, or occasionally more years if they have a good quality of life. Some ferrets pass away starting at about 4 years old. Often the reason that ferrets are unhealthy is because they’ve been fed inappropriately, usually cheap cat food. Ferret friends is also contacted by the Humane Society and PACC.
Ferret Friends is in desperate need of foster homes. Ferrets just don’t have the media exposure and popular following  that cats and dogs do. They are extremely high maintenance pets. Ferret Friends is also looking for volunteers with website and merchandising skills to help the group sell cages, bedding, and all the other ferret items that are donated.

Please support Tucson ferret rescue.

You can buy bracelets at Silver Sea Jewelry & Gifts, 330 N. 4th Ave., 624-9954. Bracelets cost $20 and all Feb. sales benefit Ferret Friends.

You can also buy bracelets online after Feb. 7 where they will be more of selection. There’s a $3 shipping & handling charge.

“I just received the most beautiful bracelet that I purchased from the Beading Divas. It’s just about the prettiest thing I’ve seen. Really spectacular beads. Take a look on Etsy, you’ll be pleasantly surprised.” –Jean Rettus/AGR adopter/volunteer

For the entire month of January, bracelet sales help Arizona Greyhound Rescue which is located in Tucson/Marana. AGR rescues retired racing greyhounds from Tucson Greyhound Park and the now defunct Phoenix Greyhound Park.
