Pima Paws for Life is in the final stages of an agreement with Pima Animal Care Center to transfer dogs with kennel cough to our facility! We are very happy that this plan is moving forward, and we feel this will relieve some of the overcrowding at PACC, and keep dogs from having to sit in the sickbay room.
When they come to Pima Paws for Life, they will all have their own indoor/outdoor runs, bedding, toys, veterinary care, two healthy meals a day, and a warm, dry place to sleep. We will have the option of returning animals to PACC once they are healthy, however, it is our intention to find them each loving forever homes, with the help of our community, so they never have to be returned.
There are necessities that we still need to purchase or receive as donations before we can start taking in dogs, and time is of the essence! Please share this link: http://pitchinbox.com/pages/3882740340 with your friends and family to help us reach our ambitious goal! You also have the option of donating through our website, at PimaPawsForLife.org, or donating an item from our wish list. We sincerely thank you for your continued support!
This holiday season; give the best gift of all – give the gift of LIFE!
Formerly “Snoop Lion” at PACC, I renamed him Connor (which means “Hound Lover”) as soon as he came home with us, and it was clear what a lover he was! Connor is only my second adult foster cat, and like my previous foster cat Finn, he was also pulled from PACC with not a moment to spare before being put to death, because of a kitty cold that is easily treatable, and easily transmitted in the shelter environment. Connor was pulled by Foundation For Animals In Risk and checked out and prescribed antibiotics by the wonderful Vets at NW Pet Clinic. He was the perfect patient, taking his medicine like a champ twice a day, and his cold cleared up within a couple of weeks. He just had his neuter surgery today, so will be ready to settle into his forever home VERY soon! Will you help Connor find his forever family?…
Connor is approximately 1 year old, and is literally the PURRFECT cat companion! He is so loving, tolerant and well-mannered. He uses his litter box and only scratches on his cat tree. He loves to be brushed and to groom himself (he’s got a real shiny soft coat that hardly sheds). He loves to cuddle with people and with Oliver! He would really enjoy a home with another pet companion, or two. Especially, a dog of his very own! Connor was an “owner release” pet and came from a home with other pets. In fact, he was given up because his previous owner had “too many pets”. I can’t imagine giving up this sweet boy, and I only do it so that I can continue to save and foster more urgent – at risk pets!
If you are interested in more information about Connor or if you are interested in becoming a foster parent to an at risk cat or dog, please contact us!

A must subscribe for any dog lover or anyone fascinated by the intricacies of the human-canine attachment!
