Adopt Love Adopt Local

April 13 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

More than 30,000 pets enter our local shelters each year, but sadly all may not find a new home. Adopt Love Adopt Local, an initiative of the Pima Alliance for Animal Welfare (PAAW), aims to solve this issue by connecting adopters with a collaboration of local shelters and rescues to increase adoptions and awareness. Through research, education, and an annual, community-wide adoption event we intend for every displaced companion pet in our community, to have a happy, forever home.

Adopt Love Adopt Local is a one-day mega-adoption animal fair designed to help hundreds of our community’s homeless pets find their forever homes.

Paws and Pages

April 13 @ 1:30 pm

The Paws and Pages Literacy Program aims to give children the opportunity to have a positive impact on the lives of shelter pets while building confidence and improving reading skills. It has been observed by the APSCA that being read to helps fearful or shy dogs become more comfortable with people because there is no forced interaction. Here at HSSA, we will read to shy dogs and cats as well as sick dogs who are long term residents with limited human interaction. As exemplified by shelter literacy programs across the country, this reading program will encourage our shelter pets to approach the front of their kennels for potential adopters and thus improve their chances of a short stay with us at HSSA.
