Tips & Reminders for dogs
For larger breeds, a well cleaned
five gallon paint bucket, with a large rock in the bottom, will prevent
the dog from tipping over his water.
Fill up a kiddie plastic pool and place in the
shade. Cool and fun!
Install a mister system on your back patio.
Your dog will thank you!
Hook up a swamp cooler on your patio for your
dogs. Be sure to adequately secure all electrical cords!
If the pavement is too hot for you to touch
with your hand, then it is too hot for your doggies paws!
Summer monsoons and the Fourth of July
fireworks can be upsetting to your pets. Consult your veterinarian in
advance in order to prepare for times of anxiety with your pet. Keep your
pet in a safe place indoors and play a radio or TV to help drown out the
outdoor storm or festivities. Make sure your pets have ID tags or they are
micro chipped in case they get lost. If your dog stays outside, ensure all
yard gates are latched/locked to keep your dog inside the yard!

My name is Gypsy,
because I have been one. I did not have a home, but traveled around with
a homeless woman, living off of the streets. When I had my 3 puppies, my
Mom turned me into the shelter because she new that she could not take
care of all of us. I am about three years.
I really just want to be loved and play ball
and be loved some more.
I am small (about 35 pounds) and would be
perfect for any home; ie. with other dogs or kids. I do not like cats too
much! I am spayed, and current on my shots.

Save Just One
By 5 pm every single day, so many pets
with a lifetime left to give will be killed because no one steps up. Think
about that. I am sure you shake your head and say things like: "Sad,
but it is not my problem." "I have no room for a pet."
"I am too busy." Really?
I challenge you to walk the many hallways of the pound. I
challenge you to look into the terrified and begging eyes of imprisoned
animals: newborns, seniors, purebreds and mixes - all on the same kill list
for the same reason - nobody wants them. These imprisoned animals are
speaking to you and to me.
Our County pounds are in crisis mode because they are at
capacity. Why are they at capacity? Because people are irresponsible.
Owners choose not to spay and neuter their pets and once babies arrive,
they are thrown away like trash, turned loose on the street, or surrendered
to the County pound. The animals are then killed because there is no
available kennel to put them in. The animals are then killed because no one
What can you do to help? Spay and neuter your pet at a
low-cost or no-cost spay and neuter clinic. Adopt just one animal. Foster
just one animal. If every person took just one, the pound and shelters would
be empty. Save just one, today!

Barlett and Tahoe
My brother and I
were found in a cardboard box behind a water treatment plant on the west
side of Phoenix. The cardboard box had a big hole at the top where we
think our Mom was able to escape. We were too tiny to get out of the box.
We do not know what happened to our Mom. A nice lady picked us up &
took us to a foster home. We are both boys and we are really cute and
love to cuddle, so we are told!
We would love to meet you so please
