Dogs available for adoption September 2020

Dogs available for adoption are spayed/neutered, micro chipped and utd on all age appropriate vaccinations. A meet and greet with your dog is necessary in most instances.  Adoption fees are $60 cash or check only + $10.99 (must have card) for micro chip registration where applicable. There is no cost for a transfer of the micro chip if dogs have been previously registered.

Titanna is a Great Dane/Lab mix -friendly 2-3 yrs old good with kids and some some other dogs

Momma Amber Fundraiser

Momma Amber was brought to the shelter as a stray. She is 9-12 months old a Lab/Rhodesian Ridgeback Mix. She is due to deliver 7 pups any day. This is going to be a huge expense for the shelter and we are in need of funds to help with all the medical and other costs associated with Momma and her pups. She will be with us for at least 8 weeks. After the pups are weaned she will be spayed, micro chipped and utd on vaccinations. The pups will be with us for 12 weeks and then they will have their vet appointment, spayed/neutered micro chipped and all their shots. If you can help with any funds there is a donate button for Network for Good on this page. Or you can mail a donation, to PO Box 1085, Tombstone, aZ 85638, mark it for Amber & Pups.

UPDATE 3/3/2020 – Momma Amber had her pups today. 8 hours of hard labor 7 beautiful pups. 4 girls and a boy.. Now the fun begins. They will not be available for pre-adoption for about 8 weeks. They can go to their forever homes after 12 weeks. At that time they will be spayed/neutered, micro chipped and have age appropriate vaccinations. ALL ADOPTED

Dear Santa from Miss Trina

Dear Santa;

Miss Trina here,  just checkin’ in to let you know I am at the Tombstone Small Animal Shelter.  I thought if you knew where I was and have been since May that you might be able to help guide the right family to the shelter to adopt me.  All I want for Christmas is a family to love me.  I have so much love that I don’t really want to share with other pets. I know that sounds selfish but at 5 years old I have determined I am packed with enough love that other pets are needed.

The kind volunteers here at the shelter love me a lot, I know, but they only have so much time to spend on each pet and sometimes there are lots here.  They all seem to get to go to their new homes but here I am still waiting.  And I am the Famous one, or maybe Infamous one!  I have been in the Fun Run/Walk  and even been in the Helldorado Parade.  Bet not many have done that!  I had a great time and people called out to me and clapped and gave me treats.  What a trip that was!

I am a regular at  PetSmart  and CAL Ranch in Sierra Vista  but still come back to the shelter.  I even have had my DNA done and for those of you that think I am fat, nope, I have  some St. Bernard in my ancestry so that accounts for the big bone structure.  Of course since my main breed is American Staffordshire the Military won’t let me live on Post. 

Last year I heard that another guest here at the shelter, Katy, wrote you a letter and she got a Great new home by Christmas and is now called “Katy the Wonder Dog”.  That’s what I would like, a new home and if someone wanted to call me “Trina the Wonder Dog” that would be ok too!! The shelter is having a Special Adoption Promotion for Seniors, anyone  who qualifies  and is 65 years and older can adopt me or any 5 year old or older pet for just $10 during the month of December. And if you haven’t reached your golden years the adoption fee is only $25.  Santa, the shelter’s phone number is 520-457-2545.

Thank You Santa for all you do for the shelter Pets.

Yours Truly,

Trina        Trina c                               UPDATE 12/12/2015  SANTA GRANTS WISHES. TRINA ADOPTED

DNA Results onFAB 4

DNA RESULTS: TSAS has had DNA done on our Fab 4 as we call the 4 dogs we have that have not been adopted. We thought doing this might help some adopters see what fabulous dogs they are and give them another chance at a loving home. Each dog has his/her unique personalities, and by these results you can see that you cannot judge a dog by their looks.
