Tucsonans may have packed up their holiday decorations and moved on to the new year, but many homeless animals are still waiting for their holiday celebration to begin.

Last November, the Humane Society of Southern Arizona kicked off its Home for the Holidays program, inviting compassionate individuals, families, groups, schools and businesses to sponsor homeless dogs and cats in need. Thanks to these generous supporters, HSSA has 75 sponsored animals eagerly awaiting families at a reduced adoption fee of $50.

By sponsoring a pet at the shelter, Home for the Holidays’ supporters cover a portion of the cost of care for their selected animal and help promote that pet by reducing its adoption fee. Sponsorships last until the pet is adopted.

Each dog or cat in the Home for the Holidays program comes with a full adoption package, including a microchip, vaccinations, sterilization surgery, a bag of food, a leash or carrier, and a free visit to the veterinarian of their choice for only $50!

The HSSA hopes animal lovers will consider making a homeless pet’s life joyous, merry and bright for years to come.

Visit the HSSA today so that a feline or canine companion may spend every holiday from here on out in the comfort of a loving home.

Humane Society of Southern Arizona’s main adoption center is located at 3450 N. Kelvin Blvd. The HSSA also has adoption centers and pet boutiques at La Encantada at Skyline Drive and Campbell Avenue in northwest Tucson and Park Place Mall, 5870 E. Broadway Blvd. near Wilmot in central Tucson.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
