Tucson Cold Wet Noses Fosters is a small group of individuals who take in the dogs that are scheduled to be euthanized on any given day from Pima Animal Care Center (PACC). The dogs are on this list due to illness, shyness or some issue that deems them unadoptable under PACC’s policies. Cold Wet Noses take them in, gets them well, socializes them and gets to know their needs and personalities so that the best match between dog and adopter can be made. CWN dogs come spayed or neutered, up to date on their vaccines and microchipped.
Cold Wet Noses does not have a facility. Our pets are spread throughout the city in people’s homes, hence, CWN is all about fostering dogs and adopting dogs. There is an adoption event every Sunday at the Petco on Broadway @ Craycroft from noon until 4 p.m where you can meet several foster dogs available for adoption.
There are young, middle aged and older dogs, some small dogs but mostly larger,hairy mutts. CWN is a non-profit organization and a bunch of dog lovers who are trying to help as many wayward furry souls as we can. Some of our dogs are special needs dogs meaning they may have some long term health issues (valley fever or arthritis for instance) or some personality quirk (shy or wary of men). We love each and every foster and consider them to be part of the family so will NOT adopt dogs who will be yard dogs only.
The more Cold Wet Noses can adopt, the more they can continue to save unwanted dogs on the brink of death at PACC.
CWN appreciates people who are willing to give their new pet a chance to adjust to their new home but we also want the right match for the two of you, so things are not working out, CWN reserves first rights to taking the dog back. (If you know of someone else who would love the dog, let CWN know.)
CWN will work with you to find the right dog. There is a 3-day adoption fee back trial period.
Thank you for adopting an orphaned pet and not buying one when there is such a need and so many discarded pets. A wagging tail awaits you.
