2015 Renovation Project completed

Thanks to the Ryan Miele Animal Welfare Endowment the shelter was able to complete much needed renovations,.  The shelter was built in 1997 and 2/3 of it needed a some major tlc.  The walls of the kennels were having  major safety issues as the original metal was thin and sharp. Dogs were tearing it apart in some places and in others there were sharp edges that needed to be fixed. Jason Shepard and his crew of Robbie and Mike  from Sierra Metals did an amazing job of tearing out all the bad parts and replacing with new easy to clean walls. To see all the pictures before and after go to “About Us” at the top of the page, click on Shelter Gallery then 2015 Renovations.

Cash Donations Needed

Tombstone Small Animal Shelter is a non-profit 501c3, no-kill animal shelter.  it is the only No-Kill Animal shelter in Cochise County. Supported completely by public donations, no funds are received from corporations or the City of Tombstone.  Because of our no-kill status some of our cats and dogs  are with us for many months, just waiting for that  perfect new home.  This year 61% of our spending was for spay/neuter and medical costs for the cats and dogs, 20% was to help  the less fortunate members of the community with medical and food assist.  August was the lowest month of this year for donations and we are in need.

Friday October 17 through Sunday October 19th is Helldorado Days in Tombstone, the last 3 day Special Week-end of the year,  We will be having a donation table on  the corner 5th and Allen Streets.  Please stop by with a donation, visit with our volunteers, share stories about your pets, get current news regarding the shelter and maybe pick up an item or two that we have for sale.   On Saturday we will also have a donation table in front of Staples in Sierra Vista if you can’t get to Tombstone for the festivities. And we always have a donation jar when we are doing adoptions at PetSmart.
