Meet  Daphne

Daphne is a VERY SWEET, gentle, 11 year old.


Her owner passed away and she was brought to PACC.  She is an older gal with only a few teeth, but that doesn't slow her down. She loves to go for walks, and wags her tail and will accept pets if you go nice and slow. She is okay with other dogs and cats but she will give a little warning woof if they come in her space when she doesn't want them to.


She does have a little separation anxiety, and would love to have a calm doggy companion to keep her company.  She would be perfect for someone who is home most of the day, and has a quiet house.


HOPE for the Future

More than a decade ago the founders of HOPE recognized the need for a shelter that could offer more than a short term space for some of Tucson's highest risk pets. An elderly dog who lost their owner to hospice, a cat with diabetes, a litter of puppies with parvo. Pets that were and are savable but needed a different environment and more time than a municipal shelter could provide.

There was a need and HOPE stepped in to fill it! Many of those pets have found forever homes that understand their special needs. Some now call HOPE their permanent home! 


As HOPE moves into the future one of our goals is to continue our dedication to those animals, that might just need a bit more, Your monthly contributions are the key to our success!


You keep us running!  

Did you know HOPE Animal Shelter was Tucson's first no-kill shelter and sanctuary for dogs and cats? 

Give HOPE to an animal through a monthly sponsorship

Your monthly sponsorship of HOPE animals supports our ongoing commitment to some of Southern Arizona's most at risk pets. At HOPE we have found sometimes a couch and a cat bed go a long way to building trust and putting pets with special needs on a path to healing.
