Bubbles Finds Healing and a Home

Bubbles made an amazing recovery thanks to your donations, PACC’s medical team, and his loving foster family.

Bubbles was found very skinny, with a swollen and painful face. He was almost completely hairless from mange and allergies. At first we weren’t sure if he would make it. But we never gave up on him and with your generous donations he received the special care he needed. A foster home followed and less than one month after we weren’t sure if he would make it…he came back as a fuzzy, healthy boy! The best part? He was adopted and loves his new life.

Wally Gets a Second Chance

Wally went from miserable to the happiest cat you’d ever meet thanks to your support of multiple surgeries and ongoing foster care.

Wally has been through a lot and is still the sweetest gentleman cat you will ever meet. He arrived at the shelter with many health challenges including a head injury, an open palate, calicivirus, and stomatitis. Through all of his treatment and multiple specialty surgeries he never stopped being a gentle love bug. His surgeries and extended specialty care were only possible through donations from people like you.

Mistletoe Finds Love and Hope

Mistletoe has transformed thanks to your support and his loving foster home!

Mistletoe came to the shelter as a tiny, stray puppy. He was found alone at a construction site suffering from mange and malnutrition that altered the growth of his front legs. Thanks to our followers like you, Mistletoe found a loving foster home on the same day we shared his story! And donors like you helped pay for his specialty medical consultation and additional care. Today, Mistletoe is walking well, free of mange, and most importantly—he was adopted by his foster mom! You can see a before and after video of him at our AZ Gives Day page by clicking here.

Patches Sees a Future

Thanks to you, Patches got the specialty surgery she needed to see again!

Thanks to you, Patches got the specialty surgery she needed to see again!

When Patches the cat first arrived at the shelter with her eyes barely open, staff wasn’t sure if she even had eyelids. It turned out that she did have eyelids, but they had turned inward, causing her eyelashes to grow into her eyes—a very painful condition that also made it difficult for her to see. Friends of PACC teamed up with local organization No Kill Pima County to get Patches the cryogenic surgery she needed to repair each eyelash. Today, she’s in her forever home and showing her gorgeous green eyes to the world!

Bentley Learns and has Fun Along the Way

Your support makes thousands of medical transformations possible, but your dollars also provide special programming for shelter pets that includes training and enrichment. In the video below you’ll see Bentley having a great time in his TOP Dogs Canine Fun Camp training. Bentley spent four months at the shelter before finding his forever home. He didn’t like other dogs and had a lot of energy to burn so the shelter was very stressful for him. This program and others like it gave Bentley the chance to learn basic obedience, get an important break from his kennel routine, and finally to find a perfect home! He now lives with a family that adores him and spends most of his time with his 4-year-old human sibling. His transformation from stressed to blessed was only possible with support from donors like you!
