Pima Paws for Life is a 501c3 private animal shelter dedicated to creating an Adoption Guarantee Facility for dog and cats.
What is an Adoption Guarantee Facility? It is where every animal is guaranteed a home, unless they are suffering with no hope of recovery or have behavioral problems so severe that they are a threat to the safety of others. Pima Paws for Life believes that every animal’s life has value- every life matters.
There is a great need in the Tucson community and Pima Paws for Life has a big wish – to remain open. They have reached a critical point with financial resources and cannot continue without donations. PPFL focuses on taking in dogs and cats with medical needs, which incur extra veterinary care costs before going to their forever homes.
For as little as $10 a month (33 cents a day), help them continue saving lives. Or any donation would be greatly appreciated.
They also need in-kind donations in order to keep the shelter humming. These donations are accepted at the PPFL shelter located at 2555 W. Zinnia Avenue, Tucson, 85705, daily from 7 to 11 am and 3 to 7 pm.
