Cat of the week




Domestic Short Hair

I'm Strongbow! My name suits me well. I need a little time to feel safe around humans. I will definitely need an adopter who understands decompressing time in a new home. Once I know I'm safe I am a sweet boy with a purr machine. I love other cats, I am very affectionate with them. I don't mind dogs and I do well with kids! I also like to be up in high places.

Dog of the week




Chihuahua Mix

Bianca was rescued from a fishing village in Mexico.  A good Samaritan drove her to Tucson to a Claws and Paws foster home. She is a very sweet, loving girl who loves human contact.  She's a couch potato who still loves her time in the back yard.  She is just learning how to walk on a leach. Therefore, may need a little more patience in that department.
