You might see a cat or kitten for sale at a Tucson pet store and assume that buying a cat is the only option. Or you might, as many people do, believe that a cat for sale from a store or a breeder in Tucson is somehow “better” than one you might find for adoption in a Tucson animal shelter. This is a common misconception, and it couldn’t be further from the truth. The cats and kittens available for adoption at your local shelters and rescue groups are wonderful, sweet, healthy companions who are homeless through no fault of their own. Many times, animals end up in shelters simply because their former owner encountered a financial hardship and could no longer afford to care for them, or perhaps even lost their own home. Whatever the reason, most cats and kittens in shelters are great former pets who have lived in homes, and are often already litterbox trained.

Have you ever seen an adorable cat or kitten up for adoption and featured on your local news channel? Those great cats and kittens aren’t rare finds! They are the norm, and just about everywhere – including right here in Tucson – there are too many pets and not enough homes choosing to adopt them. Unfortunately, many animals are still not spayed or neutered resulting in thousands of unwanted cats and kittens each year.I recently became aware of another exceptional pet rescue/ placement operation in Tucson. The Chi Society has many wonderful dogs (mainly Chihuahuas, but some other small breeds as well) that are available for adoption. As a Chi owner myself, I can tell you that these little dogs are unbelievably smart, excellent companions, and real little lovers. Maggie and others at the Chi Society are also thrilled to announce the creation of the Chi Sanctuary, which is haven in the area exclusively for older or disabled Chihuahuas. There are opportunities to adopt, foster, volunteer and donate through this great organization. We are in full support of those who sacrifice their time and resources to advocate for better lives for all- human or animal. Thanks to the Chi Society for being the voice of little dogs that otherwise would not be heard! Visit their website or email them today to learn more.Our Everyday Adoption Centers are part of a nationwide initiative to save more homeless pets. Since May 2010, PetSmart Charities has helped save more than 77,000 pets by opening Everyday Adoption Centers in Arizona, Colorado, Delaware, Idaho, Illinois, Kentucky, Nevada, New Jersey, Ohio, Texas, Washington, and Wisconsin.Delicia Metcalfe wears her new friend, a ball python on display at the Tucson Reptile Rescue booth, one of more than 60 booths with pets in need of new homes at Adopt Love/Adopt Local, a large scale pet adoption event at the Tucson Expo Center, Saturday, April 11, 2015, Tucson, Ariz.
