Adoptable of the Month

Lucy - Female, 1 year old Domestic Short Hair 


Hi, I'm Lucy!! I'm as cute as a button with my unique Torbie coloring! (That’s a Tabby and Tortie cross if you didn’t know. ☺️) I've been growing up in the shelter where the staff there is really nice, and I get to play with all the toys and other cats. But, I sure would like to have a human of my own to really get to know and love! Some of my favorite things to do are getting brushed and chasing toy mice. Give me a chance and I know we’ll be friends furever!! 

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.

Masks are required at all times when visiting our shelter.
