Here are two of the pets currently available for adoption at the Humane Society of Central Arizona, located at 605 W. Wilson Court. Hours are Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.; Tuesday and Thursday from 1:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. All pets are already spayed or neutered and current on vaccinations.
Hank is a 2-year-old American Pit Bull Terrier mix. Despite his big muscles, Hank is a sweet and gentle guy that’s constantly looking for a buddy. Hank is great with other dogs and makes friends quick! He would love to go on adventures with you, whether it’s just a walk to the mailbox or a hike in the woods, he’ll be ready. Hank also loves his quiet time and wouldn’t mind lounging around the house with you. His play style can be a little much at times, so tolerant and friendly dogs would be best and preferably older kids.
Buddy is a 5-year-old Golden retriever/chow mix. “I am a big, cuddly guy with lots of energy! I am very smart! I know how to sit and shake with both paws. I have lived with children and other dogs. I don’t have much experience in a house, so please be patient while I learn the rules! I’d do best in an active home where I get to spend lots of time outside romping and exploring. I like most other dogs, but I sometimes play rough and don’t like to be pushed around. Tolerant dog friends are best, especially if they are girls!”
