Tail-waggers of the week: Pip & Chloe

Meet a couple of the many great companions available at our local animal rescue groups: Pip and Chloe.


Pip is a five-year-old Labrador retriever mix Pip was abandoned — her previous owners left her tied to a tree in a park and walked away. Then her life became in danger at the county shelter when she found herself on the final euthanasia list until a kind person stepped up to foster her.

Pip has been living with a family with a middle school-aged child and they think she is just wonderful! Pip likes to play and frolic. She is housebroken and good on the leash. She has a lot of energy but also loves her naps and quite time. She is very affectionate and would climb up on your lap if you let her and love you all day long. She wants to feel that if she gives you all her love it won't be wasted and she will be yours forever. She is a volunteer favorite.

Pip comes with lots of love and support from her trainers and friends. She is spayed, microchipped and current on all of her shots. Her adoption fee is only $50.

If you or someone you know is interested in Pip, please contact Lifeline Oro Valley Animal Rescue, 520-979-2282, and schedule a meet and greet or have her brought to you for a home visit. 


Chloe is a sweet 4-year-old spayed, black lab/pit mix who was a volunteer favorite at the county shelter. Chloe has the most expressive face - showing lots of curiosity when you talk to her as if she is really interested in hearing everything you have to say about your day. Chloe enjoys sitting in a paddling pool, or going for a car-ride, and she gets great joy from playing with her toys.

Affectionate and playful, Chloe is also smart and knows sit and stay. She is described as housebroken and when left alone she sleeps or self entertains. She also has great crate behavior.

Chloe is affectionate and happily accepts belly rubs - she so wants to feel like she is part of a family of her own. When you are home, she likes nothing more than just to be by your side. A volunteer wrote " She's always very gentle, and affectionate, very kennel broken and so loving. She really enjoys being next to her human. She takes treats so gently".

Chloe is spayed, current on all shots and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $50. If you or someone you know is interested in Chloe, please contact Lifeline Oro Valley Animal Rescue, 520-979-2282, and schedule a meet and greet or have her brought to you for a home visit.

Save a life

Most Tucson rescues are small, volunteer-based non-profit groups who rely on the community to fulfill their mission to save animals lives. Not only do they count on donations from the public to cover costs, they depend on people who are willing to open their hearts and homes to needy animals until they are ready for adoption. If you are interested in saving a life by becoming a foster, you can let local rescues know by registering at Saferlifeline.org.
