We’re Celebrating Animals in Sierra Vista
Arizona weather seems to come in three flavors: hot, cool, and windy. However, the late Spring is one of our weather Goldilocks periods - the weather is just right!
As we roll into this perfect time, local activities are ramping up this weekend. As we move into May, we're Celebrating Animals in Veterans Park.
Animals, Animals, Animals
Hosted by the Nancy J. Brua Animal Care Center, this event brings together animal welfare organizations from all parts of Cochise County.
One of the highlights of the daylong event is the Greater Sierra Vista Kennel Club, which hosts an AKC-sanctioned breed obedience and rally match.
This event is very family friendly. It's even okay to bring your well-behaved dog on a leash, and let Fido have a fun little outing.
Rescue and Adopt a Pet
If you're looking to adopt a forever-pet, this is also a day to consider adopting from one of several animal-welfare organizations and shelters. Here are some of the participants:
- Huachuca City Animal Care and Control
- Cochise County Sheriff's Office Animal Care and Control
- Friends of The Sierra Vista Animal Shelter, Inc.
- Sierra Vista Animal Care and Control
- Hearts of Gould Rescue
- Border Animal Rescue
- Rescue Adoption Volunteers
- Cochise County Humane Society
