2 PACC Volunteers Open Dog Adoption Center at La Encantada Mall in Tucson | Local News
“Our buzzword is that we are adoption specialists,” Powers said, adding that they will get to know the adopters, with the goal of finding the perfect dog. “We don’t want the dog back.”
“When people go to events and such, they look at the dog and say, ‘He’s a pretty dog,'” Gilbert said. “But we will find out their specific needs.”
And they will have someone present, like the dog’s foster family, who can tell you everything you need to know about the dog. The center will also have books aligned with dog care to help further educate adopters.
Think match.com — but for dogs, Powers said.
“That’s our rule of thumb: provide good service and good information,” Gilbert said.
Tucson Rescue Now will feature a variety of puppies, primarily focusing on older dogs, as well as dogs that have had trouble getting adopted. There will also be private rooms for adopters who want to get to know the dog in a quieter setting.
And if you don’t connect with any of the center’s dogs that day, Tucson Rescue Now will have a comprehensive database of local shelters and shelters to help you find the perfect dog. They’ll even make an appointment with the emergency services to bring the dog to the centre, so you won’t have to travel around town.
