This past weekend at the Humane Society of Southern Arizona was excited by the results, thank to the Challenge Champion, Premiere Auto’s Scott Lehman – a dealer for the people, and pets.

Altogether, 121 dogs and cats found their forever homes.

This coming weekend Lehman again will be sponsoring free adoptions for all mixed-breed dog, cat, puppy and kitten adoptions this Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 22-23, at all locations. All purebred pets will be half-off.

The rest of the weekdays will continue with September’s Pay the Date promotion, which will determine the price of all mixed-breed, adult dogs over 25 pounds and adult cats. Each day of the month will be the set adoption price of each dog or cat – come in on Sept. 20, and pay just $20.

Things are about to get even bigger: The fun-filled Fur Baby Fiesta is right around the corner! Free adoptions for all mixed-breed dogs, cats, puppies and kittens – and all purebred pets will be half-off! Plus, every dog and cat will go home with a Fur baby Party Pack filled with enrichment toys and treats. The party will get started:

Friday, Sept. 28 from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. with scrumptious dishes to try from our onsite food trucks and Mariachi Tesoro de Tucson will be performing from 5 to 9 p.m.

Saturday, Sept. 29, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. the Humane Society will be serving up free hot donuts to start the day. Los Changuitos Feos de Tucson, a youth mariachi group, will perform from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. The free fun continues into the afternoon, with animal-themed kids’ crafts, glitter tattoos and face painting from 2 to 5 p.m.

Sunday, Sept. 30, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Start the morning off right with free donuts and a wake-up performance from Tucson Magnet High School’s Mariachi Ariztlan from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. The free fun continues into the afternoon, with animal-themed kids’ crafts, glitter tattoos and face painting from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and more.

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.
