As a longtime volunteer at Pima Animal Care Center (PACC), I offer information that addresses some of the distortions that have been printed in recent letters. I volunteer weekly for 10-12 hours to walk dogs and serve as an adoption counselor.

Jax is a big beautiful boy, about 3 years old. He’s very playful and sweet. Thus far he’s gotten along with most cats he’s met. It isn’t sure if he’d be happy living with dogs. Jax has been at the shelter for quite some time so when he does get adopted, the family should understand it might take him some time to adjust to a home environment. His last person ended up having to return him due to allergies. Jax would like to be brushed sometimes to keep that wonderful mane of his looking its best. He seems to understand there’s a price to pay for being so handsome so he doesn’t mind it.

Budda was found as a stray and he wasn’t very good at it, nor did he like it. He was dirty and very hungry and skinny. It was obvious he was once someone’s cat as he was very affectionate and seemed to be OK with children. A veterinarian’s estimate of Budda’s age is about 7 years old. Budda is a laid-back and gentle boy. He loves belly rubs and seems to be good with other cats. It isn’t known if he’d enjoy the company of a dog. Budda has gotten his teeth cleaned, he’s neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $85.
Hawkeye is a large mixed breed guy that came to Friends for Life Animal Rescue from the Yuma Humane Society. His family turned him in ... the owners said they had no time for him. He is about 2 years old. He is a very nice boy and silly as well. Volunteers at the shelter have been working with him, teaching him commands such as lay down. It has been observed that he is food possessive and, because of this, he should be an only animal in his new home. Hawkeye is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped. He currently lives at Friends for Life’s adoption center, 143 W. Vaughn Ave., in downtown Gilbert. His adoption fee is $125.
Hannah is a beautiful girl, estimated to be a 2-year-old Shepherd blend. She originally was found as a stray in Yuma. She weighs more than 60 pounds. Hannah is a great companion for humans, however, not so much for other animals. She becomes possessive if dogs are around and want her toys or her food. She’ll need to be the only animal in the home because of this. She can and does, however, interact with other dogs when there are no toys or food around.
A local organization will host a wine tasting event this November in order to fund spay and neutering surgeries at the Maricopa County Animal Care and Control.
Chaplain is all ready in his black and white tuxedo, but has nowhere to go. He is a beautiful boy as you can see and volunteers agree he is a busy boy. He enjoys his play toys so his new family will hopefully provide some for him and not mind that he has an active schedule.
Chaplain is all ready in his black and white tuxedo, but has nowhere to go. He is a beautiful boy as you can see and volunteers agree he is a busy boy. He enjoys his play toys so his new family will hopefully provide some for him and not mind that he has an active schedule. Chaplain is a loving boy as well and will sit with his people from time to time. He’d probably do well with cats that don’t mind him being so active and some dogs as well. Chaplain has tested negative for FELV/FIV, is microchipped, neutered, and up to date on vaccinations. He currently calls Friends for Life’s adoption center in downtown Gilbert home. His adoption fee is $85. If interested in meeting him, call (480) 497-8296, visit www.azfriends.org, or just come in during office hours to meet him.
Officials say most of the 79 cats that were confined in a Gilbert home have been euthanized.
Kermit was originally found as a stray and brought in to the Yuma Humane Society. He is estimated to be about 6 years old. The guess on what he is … Chihuahua mix? All that is known for sure is he’s absolutely adorable. Kermit needs a child-free home as he has a bit of sensitivity when being handled. Don’t let that scare you though … the volunteers that work with Kermit at the shelter can go over/explain what exactly that means. He is a very sweet boy. He is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped. Kermit’s adoption fee is $125.
The 79 cats that were confined in a Gilbert home will be available for adoption beginning at 11 a.m. Thursday morning.
Big Mac is a big hunk of a dog and everyone that meets him just loves him. He’s said to be an American bulldog/mastiff mix about 5 years old. He had been adopted a year or so ago but recently returned due to trying to put the family’s pet tortoise in his belly. Thankfully Big Mac was unsuccessful and the tortoise lives to tell the tale.
Each year in Maricopa County, tens of thousands of animals are euthanized. The shelters fill up, the programs that aid animals with medical and behavioral problems can only take so many cases, and, unfortunately, the whole system can only care for so many.
Fondue is quite the handsome boy. He is about a year old, great with other cats but probably would not enjoy the company of dogs. Fondue has a lot of kitten left in him, but don’t be surprised if he is timid at first until he gets comfortable. His shyness upon first meeting is probably why he’s been waiting so long for a home. Once he’s comfortable expect that he’ll be ordering up some belly rubs and provide you with some “silly kitty” entertainment. He loves having his head scratched, been known to cuddle with his kitty friends, and bird watching from the window.
This weekend, 12 Valley animal rescue organizations will set up shop in 40 locations across Maricopa County to try to get more than 1,500 cats and dogs adopted — and all of those pets can be adopted entirely for free.
This is Brennan (however the shelter knows him as Bogart) who was adopted about a year ago, and was recently returned through no fault of his own. He is about 2 years old, and is one cute Chiweenie.

It is a legal case that has attracted a team of top death penalty lawyers, candlelight vigils and a polarizing Internet debate on mercy, blame and animal violence.
Mesa will receive free sterilization for homeless cats living in two zip codes — 85201 and 85204. The Spay Neuter Hotline will be scheduling appointments, giving out humane traps and aiding in the process. The money for the program comes from a grant given out by PetSmart Charities.
Remember the good old days when a big-budget action picture could earn a hard R rating? It looks like those days are officially dead. “Die Hard,” “The Terminator,” “Total Recall,” these were three of the best action movies of the late eighties and early nineties, complete with all the gleeful violence and profanity a kid could desire. Nowadays, everything must be toned down to a PG13 rating, including the recent sequels and reboots of the three aforementioned films.
