We moved into our site at La Encantada in October 2019. Although we are new and just getting started, we have helped many senior dogs find homes. Here are some of our senior dogs with their new families. To learn about the dogs we adopted today, follow us on
Harlow was confiscated from an abusive environment by animal control officers. She had cactus lodged in her throat and still has a bullet in her skull. Adopted in February 2020, we found Harlow some new people who will give her the love she deserves and then some. We believe in turnarounds!
We conjure an easy, laid-back environment so senior dogs and people can get to know each other in a setting that is more like home than a shelter. This person spent a long time on a couch with Peanut one day, then called us first thing the next morning to let us know she was on her way to fetch him. Adopted in February 2020, Peanut is a tiny bit extra-special: our 100th adoption since opening. Go home, little doggie.
Sugar was adopted in February 2020 at our adoption marathon featuring senior dogs from Pima Animal Care Center. These two Phoenix residents drove to Tucson after seeing our Facebook post about her. Sugar has a home again because of the commitment both PACC and TRN have made to senior dogs and because of our volunteers who foster senior dogs struggling to adjust to shelter life. We thank all of you who follow us on Facebook and share our posts, because that’s how Sugar found her home. We all did it together!
Girlie, a 9 year old, 3-legged lab mix, was adopted by this wonderful person during an adoption marathon featuring senior dogs from PACC in February 2020. She is the 95th senior dog adoption we have facilitated. Now, who looks happier, the person or the dog?
Mucura applies some love to her brand new person. She was adopted in February 2020 and is our 88th adoption since opening.
After spending just 1 day at Tucson Rescue Now, Hazel, 7 years old, found her new home in February 2020.
This 11 year old Boston terrier, Yogi, found his new mom and a couple sisters in February 2020. Now part of a three-generation family, Yogi’s future is bright and secure.
We invited this person to sit with our senior dogs while her friend was shopping next door. One thing led to another, and well… Dogs know the way to your heart. Sweet Winnie, 7 years old, went home, January 2020.
Fonzi, a 7 year old terrier mix, was adopted by the person on the right, but the person on the left lives just a few doors away and is now Fonzi’s vice-person.
Toby with his new family, January 2020. This little one was adopted during his first day at Tucson Rescue Now. He barely had time to make the couch warm.
5-year-old Mork and 7-year-old Mindy came to us as a very closely bonded pair. We did not want to separate them by adoption. Thanks to this very kind person, their time at a shelter is over, and they will live the rest of their lives together.
Watch out mall security officers! You will see soulful senior dogs on walks at La Encantada, and you might decide you can’t go home without one. And so, Scooter found his match in December 2019. Love at first sight.
Adopted in November 2020, we see many car rides in Allie’s future, and we bet those boys will keep her busy playing. Lucky dog, lucky family.
