Remember our sweet girl Princess? Well, we got great news yesterday that she was adopted at the shelter! We wish her the best and will surely miss her smiles and requests for belly rubs at the store with us.Happy life sweetheart, best wishes to you and your new family. The pictures are of her freedom ride and interacting with her new male fur sibling.
****UPDATE: This gorgeous pup was adopted today after she went back to the shelter this afternoon. Must have been the positive side effects of her spa day at TRN! 🙂 Good luck and happy life sweet girl!****
Could you use some great news for your Wednesday night?Well, our TRN volutneer who is fostering Thor has decided to make it official! That beautiful boy is off the market, she will be finalizing his adoption this weekend.Congratulations to mom and Thor, we are beyond ecstatic for you both! Can’t think of a better outcome for this sweet gentle soul!#HappyTears #311
Bloomie (Blue) ADOPTED-
Adoption #310!…So one of our amazing volunteers fell in love with this boy during his time at TRN. So much so that she realized the idea that someone else might snatch him up did not work for her. So…SHE did! His adoption is all done and it is oficially official!Bloomie, now Blue, is settled into his new home and has a great mom and a fur sister that you’d think he grew up with. Such a happily ever after for him!Congratulations to all three of you!
Adoption #3!!! Finally, for the perfect trifecta, drum roll, please…DOOG has left the building! He found his new family today and while he is a nervous guy, his new parents are up for the challenge and his new brother and sister have given their approval. They know due to his nervousness, he is a possible flight risk, and they are well prepared to keep him safe as he learns he is secure and well-loved. We couldn’t be happier that he has found a new furry friend to play with and learn how to just be a silly confident boy. We sent him home with his two favorite toys, and as he left, he grabbed one last stolen toy on his way out. We are surely going to miss his goofy antics, but we are so thrilled to have been a part of his next chapter. As you can see in the pics, getting everyone to look in the same general direction at the same time was no small feat! They promise to send pics and video as he settles in, and we will most certainly share the updates as we receive them. It’s entirely possible that as he left today, our volunteers and staff shed some happy tears. It’s been an emotional day for a lot of reasons, but we couldn’t be more happy for these pups and their new families. Seems a fitting tribute for 9/11, a reminder to us all that life does indeed go on and there is still much joy to be found. We honor the past, while we celebrate the adventures that lie ahead.
***Edited to add update: Please check out our update on the beautiful Zoey that was posted today. We will double up our efforts and we’re counting on all of you to help us by sharing her posts when she returns to TRN this week! Onwards and upwards, no looking back!***Adoption #2! Beautiful Ms. Zoey has found her forever family! They spent some quality time with a few of our deserving pups today, but we’re pretty sure in the end it was Zoey’s smile that won their hearts. So, so happy for this sweet girl, she has waited a while for her happily ever after and she picked a great family to be her forever. We are pretty sure she is going to be spoiled, and she has most certainly earned it!Best wishes to you all as you begin your new adventure together!
First adoption this afternoon is the glorious Tank! His mom is new to Tucson and is so happy to have this big strong boy in her life. She said she feels like she is now part of a family here and we told her that she is, she’s officially a member of the TRN family! We are so happy for them and one of our most wonderful-est (yes, it IS a word) volunteers helped them to get home and settled today. She and her daughter Lexi will be enjoying life with our favorite big lug, Tank! Congratulations to you all!Happy trails to you; we can’t wait for updates as you begin your new life together!
Diva is off on her grand adventure!She was adopted today and was so anxious to jump in the car with her new mom and dad! We tried to get pictures, but she couldn’t sit still in the store. We’re pretty sure she sensed this was different than her usual walks while at TRN. Congratulations to all three of you! We hope you have lots of fun together!For those keeping track at home, this makes #303!
CARATINI HAS LEFT THE BUILDING!
He was adopted by a lovely couple who has previously adopted a little female chi from PACC. Their meet and greet went well, he will have a friendly little gal to teach him how to be a dog and that humans are great sources of yummy treats!This is #302! Happy life little man!
Well look who’s smiling now Isn’t this photo a contrast from the one I posted earlier of JR? That’s because he just got adopted and we are thrilled for him. This sweet boy deserves all the love in the world and now he’s going to get it. JR is our 301st adoption.
Well the Hollywood script writers couldn’t have come up with this story line. It’s just so perfect. We are all convinced that this is John at work because he would have just loved this. Guess who worked his magic on his foster Mom and came in this evening to be adopted? The most deserving old warrior of them all. Yes Kenzo, now Kevin is our 300th adoption. We’ve had the champagne chilled and the banners stored away. We had the bakery ready with the special candles so we were all set to celebrate when the big 300 was reached. This one’s for you John
Iris & Icarus-ADOPTED
What a very special day. Do you remember the delightful lady who adopted Icarus? Her name is Stacey and she just adores the senior dogs. She particularly wants to help the dogs that have extra health problems like dear old Guero. Guero was one of the last remaining dogs at the sanctuary and a really sweet boy. Stacey set about building an extra ‘house’ for her dogs, complete with their own AC system! It’s pretty much completed now so she came in today to adopt Guero along with our other remaining sanctuary dog Iris. Here is Stacey with her Mom and Guero and Iris, getting ready to go to their perfect furever home. For those of you who are keeping track, that’s adoptions number 298 and 299!! So the next one’s the big 3-0-0!There are several people who have helped make this wonderful double adoption happen. Thank you to everyone involved with caring for the dogs while they were at the sanctuary, especially Holly for her countless hours of transport to and from Benson to the TRN store and Stesha & Jesse for caring for the dogs while they were in Benson. Stacey had invested a lot in the special accommodations for the dogs so several of our volunteers got together to cover the adoption costs and some medical costs. (yes we do have the best volunteers in the world. ) Thank you all so much. One particular person deserves a special mention and it’s another Stacey. This Stacey is our very own TRN Foster Coordinator, an unsung hero who works behind the scenes to coordinate these amazing connections. As Stacey says ‘It takes a village to get these dogs adopted.’ In this particular instance it really did.
Woo-hoo! Look what happened yesterday. Here’s Biggie with his new furever family. Don’t they look great together? We are so thrilled for this gorgeous dog. I bet he’s going to have all kinds of fun and lots of love too. Have a wonderful life Biggie Biggie is our 297th adoption. The big 300 is getting ever closer!
Remember how I said don’t dawdle? Well it was super quick! Shay got adopted Here she is with her new Mom and Dad already collecting on all the cuddles. You can see she’s saying, these are my humans now, you can’t have them. LOL. Congratulations Shay. This is our 296th adoption. Who will be the magical 300?
We knew it wouldn’t take long didn’t we? Here’s Mattie with her new family, about to head off to her furever home. All the pretty ladies together Have a wonderful life sweet Mattie.With her adoption we now stand at 295, it’s getting exciting as we close in on that big 300.
We got some super exciting news this morning. Deputy Dawg got adopted yesterday by a wonderful, loving family. Although it wasn’t a TRN adoption, I can’t think of a better way to start a Sunday than with news like this.
In case you haven’t guessed, it’s sweet, 15 year old Charlie who is travelling in style. He’s flying in a private plane to his new home He is going to be pampered and nurtured like you wouldn’t believe. His new Mom bought a special cooling pad for him to lie on during the flight to keep his belly cool. I think there is some special TRN magic happening here. Fasten your seatbelt Charlie and have a good flight.
Well how about that? Gorgeous Java has a wonderful furever home, a new Mom and a new brother called Lucky. I’d say he’s done pretty well, wouldn’t you? Java is our 294th adoption. It’s exciting, we’re inching nearer to our big 300 milestone.

We have been focusing so hard on our foster dogs and transporting dogs etc that our piggy bank is looking a little hungry. Please donate if you can.

That is adoption number 267 for TRN
There are times when this work can be incredibly sad, when we bring a beautiful dog to the store day after day and no one comes to adopt it and we watch the hope slowly fade from their eyes. And then there are days like yesterday when something happens that make it all so worthwhile.Rocco was surrendered to the shelter for euthanasia, there wasn’t anything wrong with him, he was just 15 years old. So the shelter decided not to euthanise him and we started bringing him to the store. A wonderful mother and daughter had just lost their two senior dogs and loved seniors so they adopted Rocco. Last week I did a post about Macura (Now called Lucky) she is a gorgeous dog that we had adopted out to an elderly gentleman about 18 months ago. It was a beautiful match and Macura/Lucky stayed by her owners side every hour of the day. Sadly her owner passed away and his family asked us if we could find a new home for her.You can see where this story is heading right? Rocco’s new Mom’s had said that they would like to get a friend for Rocco if the right dog came along, so we gave them a call. They came to the TRN store yesterday, Rocco and Macura walked up to each other, kissed noses and that was it. They are inseparable! Rocco and Macura had made the decision, they will be together for the rest of their days That’s our 266th adoption.
Briar selected her perfect human this weekend. Just look at her, she knows this is her perfect match. Briar was a special medical needs adoption and thanks to Alvin who fell in love with Briar for the dog she is and looked past her medical issues, we can’t thank him enough for giving her the life she deserves. Have a wonderful life Briar That is TRN’s 265th adoption.

Good things come in threes, isn’t that what they say? Our third adoption today is Rocco, here he is heading home with his new Mom And we’re looking at adoption number 263!
You can tell by the look on Samson’s face that he knows he’s heading home. Good luck sweet man, we hope you have a long and happy retirement with these two lovely ladies And that’s our 262nd adoption.
We never got to introduce little Jayla. He climbed onto this ladies lap and a short while after this picture was taken it was all over. She couldn’t resist him and he became our 261st adoption

Failed Again! And we couldn’t be happier. We had asked Seven’s foster parents if they would be able to bring Seven in to the TRN store today to see if she would get adopted and they said no!
