TailWaggers of the week: Hayley & Trixie

Meet a couple of the many great companions available at our local animal rescue groups: Hayley and Trixie. This week's TailWaggers are from Cherished Tails Senior Sanctuary.


Hayley is a sweet old lady who needs someone to love and to love her in return. She has back issues that make her walk a little slower — until it's time for food, then get out of her way as she will run you over to get to her crate to eat.  Likes to lay on the pillows wherever you are sitting, but also likes sprawling on the tile floor.  She gives you those beautiful brown eyes to get her way.  Throw a ball, she just might chase it.  Going for a walk? Hayley says, "Don't forget me, I'm coming too."  Did we mention she has lots of love to give?

Hayley is fixed, current on shots and was given a clean bill of health from the vet who said she looks great for a 14-year-old lady. She is also good with other dogs of all sizes.

Hayley's adoption fee is $50.

If you or someone you know is interested in meeting Hayley, please contact Cherished Tails Senior Sanctuary at


Trixie is a little spitfire who loves being the center of attention. She is estimated to be 6 or 7 -years-old and has received all medical needed to be ready for a new home. She loves to run and play but also is a pro snuggler. She is housebroken and crate trained and walks well on a leash (though she also loves being carried). Trixie has received a dental cleaning and needed extractions, mammary mass removal, was spayed, and has also had all of her shots updated. Her adoption fee is $100.

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, please contact one of our many local rescues.
