Arizona dogs say thank you for Summer Cooling Grant!


The Petfinder Foundation‘s Summer Cooling Grant is helping dogs at the Humane Society of Southern Arizona in Tucson keep cool via new sun shades, turf and misters in its visiting yard!

Shelter PR Coordinator Sara Gromley tells us: “Here are some photos of our new area we spruced up thanks to your Summer Cooling Grant. The mister system is absolutely deluxe! It goes from scorching hot to tropical cool within seconds of flipping a switch. Staff members enjoy taking breaks by bringing dogs out in the yard and it’s actually pleasant to be outdoors! The dogs love the turf and the shade sail works perfectly. Petfinder Foundation, we love you!”

Gromley added, “The dog model is Skylar, #757011, a 5-year-old male Golden Retriever mix. He was found as a stray and has been waiting for a home since early June (which I believe is against the laws of nature, when you’re a Golden Retriever).”

Skylar has since found his perfect family, but many more dogs are waiting at the Humane Society of Southern Arizona! Meet them here.

If you haven’t already donated, please give to our Summer Cooling Grant so we can help more pets. The improvements being made to shelters will help pets for many summers to come!
