December and January bracelet sales benefit Tucson Cold Wet Noses, a 501c3 non-profit dog rescue and adoption organization. TCWN was founded by a group of local dog lovers whose goal is to rescue dogs from the local shelters (PACC, MCACC, PCACC and The Arizona Humane Society) and find them their perfect homes through successful adoptions. Their ultimate goal is to have successful adoptions, finding a perfect match between the dog and the new owner.
Rambo is a special guy. We took him into Tucson Cold Wet Noses after his human went into hospice care and he had no other family to care for him. He had just been adopted from us, when suddenly he started vomiting, was lethargic and had a low temperature. He was rushed to our vet and ended up in acute renal failure – our boy was very sick. We have no idea what happened to cause it. We are thankful that he fought hard and pulled out of it, but every few weeks he still has some lingering effects. He will have a day or two being sick, not wanting to eat and just feeling cruddy. Because of his ups and downs, we decided to make Rambo a hospice foster. He will live for the remainder of his life in his foster home, and he is pretty happy about that.
As with our other hospice dogs, we take care of them for the remainder of their lives with us. We supply their medical, medications, special food, supplements, anything he may need to make the remaining months or years with us, the best.
Cost per bracelet is $20, with no tax. The bracelets make great gifts any time of year! The best selection is online via Etsy but in Tucson you can also buy bracelets at Fuchsia Spa in La Encantada Shopping Center and Silver Sea Jewelry, in the historic 4th Avenue Shopping District. Silver Sea is open Tuesday-Sunday from noon-6pm (masks and social distancing required.)
