We need help!

We have 27 that we need to spay or neuter. The cost to do this is about $250 per kitten (it can run as low as $150 and up to $350). At $250 per, it will cost the shelter $6750 to do this. We could use some help. We appreciate all the financial support people give to the Tombstone Small Animal Shelter. If you can help us with a donation, it would be appreciated!

Looking for a loving cat?


Meet Feather. Feather is a funloving kitten who is playful and affectionate. She has been in foster since she was tiny. The Foster family has done an excellent job with her. Feather has been raised around dogs and other cats and has done well. Her sister got adopted last week, so Feather needs a home ASAP. Feather only needs a final shot on September 5! Feather is up for Foster to adopt, which means you would take her home today and then would have to get her to Dr. Jackson’s office on September 5. Feather can be pre-adopted (which means you adopt her now), and she is yours after she has been fully vetted. Contact the shelter if you are interested, and we will give you the number of their foster family. Our number is 520-457-2545.

72 Hour hold on a lost dog.

We have a 72-hour hold on this, Raelyn. We adopted Raelyn in 2016, and she was found wandering in Tucson. We tried to contact the owner. We have on file, and the phone does not work, and we received no email response. Today at 1:30 pm AZ time, the 72 hours hold begins. Raelyn is a SWEET dog who is about nine years old. If she is your dog, contact the shelter and tell us her last known location, and if possible, bring any proof of ownership, like a chip number. If we do not hear from the owner, we will put her up for adoption. The 72-hour hold ends at 1:30 Monday, July 31, 2023.

Can You Help TSAS With A Donation

31 New Kittens at TSAS!

As luck would have it, we now have 31 baby kittens at the Tombstone Small Animal Shelter! We need some local foster parents for some of the kittens. The shelter will have invested over $300 per kitten to spay/neuter and pay for well checks and vaccinations, which adds up to $9300 for the shelter. Your help and donations are appreciated. The Tombstone Small Animal Shelter is a private, not-for-profit no-kill shelter. We receive no state or federal funding. Since 1977 we have relied on donations, and we thank you for every bit that comes in!

An Important Message from Our Shelter President.

FROM our Shelter President, Patti Williams.

TSAS and its board members have put a three-month hold on new intakes for canines. The hold includes the Tombstone area residents also. This was a tough decision for us, including all our devoted volunteers. We take great pride in our little shelter. As President/Manager of TSAS, I assure you that our sole mission is to rescue/save as many animals as possible. We never turn down an animal in need and work with the Douglas facility to pull as many animals as possible to free up space for new arrivals. We also offer community assistance for Tombstone residents to spay and neuter their pets at no charge, along with community assistance to supply food for pet owners that have fallen into hard times. We do everything we can to try and help pet owners who love their animals like family. Unfortunately, word gets out, and outside residents decided they can falsify information and use a family or friends Tombstone address to get free spay/neuter for their pets. Worse yet, they use someone else’s address, dump their dogs on us, or say they are strays. As you all know, TSAS is the only no-kill shelter in Cochise County. We are a 501c(3) non-profit organization. We run on

donations/grants for veterinarian services. We are not funded by other organizations. As an example of our dilemma, we have had 2 dogs brought to us from the Marshal’s office in less than 24 hours and dumped at our shelter by uncaring pet owners who may or may not be Tombstone residents. These dogs took two kennels that could have been used to house a Douglas dog whose time was up. We have a resident that tried for months to rehome their pet due to hard times, only to find we were full and Douglas or Wilcox facility would be their only option.

Those dog owners cost our shelter over $1,000.00 in vet bills to neuter, vaccinate rabies, and deworm, so we can hopefully get them into forever homes that will love them and give them the home they deserve. Hopefully, that is the only medical attention needed for them. Break down on we put out $500.00 per dog. Our adoption fee is $85.00. We paid $415.00, so they got a second chance to be loved. We are a shelter that cares. We want to thank all of you for your continuous support and donations. You make it possible for us to do what we do.
