HOPE Animal Shelter helps Deaf Australian Shepard “Chance”

Posted in Fundraising

Beading Divas May-June fundraising partner is HOPE Animal Shelter, Tucson’s first no-kill shelter and sanctuary for dogs and cats. HOPE’s life-saving mission is to reduce the suffering of homeless cats and dogs by providing them a compassionate, enriching environment, appropriate medical care and loving, permanent homes.

Meet Chance, a playful 6-year-old Australia Shepherd mix looking for a calm and loving home. Chance is deaf and would not do well in a home with children. He is easily startled due to his deafness. He needs a little more time to get used to things, but he is so smart it doesn’t hold him back. He shares his room with another dog and they can play for hours. Chance knows all his basic commands through hand signals! When he is inside, Chance wants nothing more than to relax on the sofa and get cuddles and love. He enjoys napping on his own bed or watching the birds through the window. Outside, Chance loves to run around and explore. Playing fetch is his favorite game! He enjoys walks and would love to go on hikes! Chance does get along with other dogs but does need some supervision since he can’t hear certain cues from them.

“ETERNALLY TIMELESS” is sweet and elegant – it would make a thoughtful gift for any animal lover!

You can help HOPE rescue more deserving pets like Chance by purchasing one-of-a-kind, handcrafted Beading Divas bracelets.

Cost per bracelet is $20. 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.)
