Looking for a dog or cat you saw a picture of at PACC?

If you are here looking for more information about a dog or cat that I took a picture of, you can click above on the green bar that says, "Dog Walk 2014" or "Kitty Cuddles 2014".

Please note that my information on whether or not they are adopted may not be up to date.  Also note that any comments I make is based only on my personal experience with that specific animal. 

You can also visit Pima Animal Care Center on line for dogs HERE

For cats, visit HERE.

On either page, you can click on "NAME" and have pets listed alphabetically by name. If they're not in the system, chances are they are probably adopted.

But, please, double check by calling Pima Animal Care Center at 520-243-5900.

Dog Recovery 10/22

Sorry, I'm a couple days late on this. I was having computer issues. Some of these dog are NOT on the SNA list that PACC provides on a daily basis. Before they are lost in the system, I'd like to keep track of them and make their names and stories public.

Please note that a LOT of the info is missing. This is because a lot of the dogs do not even have paperwork on their kennels. Wednesday is the day I do Dog Recovery and Wednesday is also the day the vet does her surgeries. I am not able to get all the latest info on the pups. Also, sometimes I just forget to take pictures of the kennel cards.

These are NOT all of the dogs in that area.

Juno, A396453
Spayed female, 4 years old, intake 9/16
TVT. Now kept in vet's office. Her white blood cell count is very low so she is being monitored closer by staff.
Duelly has extra toes.

Duelly, A497339
Neutered Male, 2 years old, intake 10/5
I'm not sure why he's here. URI?

Janus, A497852
Male, 8 years old, intake Oct?
He was pictured last week but he has a new haircut!
lame left leg, ear infection? Fluid sac? Lipoma? Janus looks like Frankenstein now with staples all up his side. He is constantly scratching himself and hopefully has a new cone.

Tommie, A496336
Female, 2 years old, intake Oct?

Mack, A498737
Male, age unknown, intake 10/17
HBC, Story is that he belonged to a homeless person. The dog was hit by a car on purpose and the homeless community begged the police officer to take him to the shelter for treatment, donating all the food they had to help pay for his treatment.

Toby (I think), A498852 (I think)
Female, age unknown, intake 10/4
HBC (I think), lame front leg

Unknown, A499045
Female, age unknown, intake 10/21
Horrible wound on leg. Exposed bone, maggots
Her leg has since been amputated and she is in with the vet.

The reason I show you this is not to gross you out but to let you know the seriousness of some of these injuries. Dog Recovery is not just URI dogs anymore. We must build a better shelter to help these animals recover quicker and safer.

Buddy, number unknown
Male, age unknown, intake unknown
I hear he is on the main floor but not on Petharbor

Twinkie, number unknown
sex unknown, age unknown, intake unknown
I think he/she has a URI

Maya ( think), number unknown
Female (lactating), age unknown, intake unknown
I believe she has URI

If you are interested in rescuing one of these dogs, please contact Michelle Lindorff ( or Justin Gallick (

All dogs are at Pima Animal Care Center, Tucson, AZ

Thank you for looking and sharing.

His name is Ludo.

I walked this sweet boy today.

He was shy and a little skittish.

He knew how to sit but wouldn't take a treat for it. 

He was scared of my hand and would shrink away from it.

He was the perfect walker but there was something else about him.

He was sad.

He was just kind of "there".

He watched the birds and the trees and the other dogs in the park down the hill playing,

his tail never left from between his legs.

He was too afraid to look me in the eye but he was sweet and gentle and mellow.

When I got back to his kennel, I thought I'd look at his intake papers. It read that the owners had him for 2 years. (Ludo is 5)

He was dumped by his owners for "growling". That was it. He growled and his family dumped him. And now he's marked as "NO CHILDREN" because of it.

While I read through the rest of the paperwork, I found this.

and this is when my heart broke. Trash? They fed their dog trash? but he really loves him as it says below that.

Coming to PACC is probably the BEST thing that has ever happened to this poor dog.

Let me repeat that....

Coming to PACC is probably the BEST thing that has ever happened to this poor dog. 

I only hope that he can get out and find a home before his shy, skittish behavior makes him pay for his life. PACC is so very overcrowded now that dogs with "behavior issues" are not making it.

PACC is Pima Animal Control Center in Tucson, AZ

Thank you for reading and sharing.

The dogs in Sick Bay/Dog Recovery

These dogs don't get a lot of attention. Some aren't even known about.

I'm going to start posting their pictures. Nothing is going to be fancy about today's post. It's 11:00, I'm tired, I'm sick with a nasty cold, I'm irritated and in a bad mood. Nothing like honesty, right?

These are certainly not all of the dogs, just the few that I interacted with and took pictures of.

Pima Animal Control Center, Tucson, AZ

Abby Road - A496743
I think she's been adopted today.

 Pepper - A493546
Female, 6 months old. Has been in sick bay for 2 months.
First had giardia, then URI and now back to giardia.
Someone please go get her. She's spent 1/3 of her life in a shit hole.

Lanus - A497852
Male, 8 years old. Lame left hind leg, possible ear infection
Kenneled with Abby Road, Tyson, Sage

Lamby - Number unknown
Female, 18 months. Non-contagious skin condition, people selective
I posted her on Facebook last week. She is still there.

Snowflake - Number unknown
RIP 10/16/14- Horrible wound with maggots. Also possible blockage. He/she was in so much pain and not improving.

Tyson - 496877
Male, 4 years
Front leg amputated, not sure if he has anything else.
Kenneled with Abby Road, Sage and Lanus

Patricia - Number unknown
Age unknown (I think she's very young). Very thin, Pneumonia, but has healthy appetite.
For being so thin, she has a beautiful coat.
Mastiff mix

 Pretty Girl - A496742

She's scared of the world and has to be carried out of her kennel.
Warms up quickly and LOVES belly rubs.

Sage - A496978
Female, 5 years. Limping on back leg. Not sure if that is her only issue.
Kenneled with Abby Road, Janus, Tyson
