Border Animal Rescue

BAR's adoptable pets are featured below. We often post them on our Facebook and Petfinder pages also:

We have pets in foster and will post them when they're ready for adoption. Right now we have several young kittens--it's kitten season!--who will be ready for adoption in a couple of months.


Adoption application here. If you meet a BAR pet at PetSmart, you can fill out the application in the store. Please call 520-227-9825 with any questions.


Gemini is a white-with-black-spots male Red Nose Pit Bull who will be 2 in May. He is very sweet and loves to snuggle. He knows "sit" and is good with people once he gets to know them. He has been around other dogs but has been aggressive with dogs that are larger than he is. He is good with children and unknown with cats. He is medium sized and probably about 50 lbs. He is also kennel trained. He has been moved around a lot before coming to us and we want him to have some permanency. He will be neutered and vaccinated before he is adopted. He is house-trained. Contact Diane at (520) 227-9825. (courtesy posting)

Riley is a 5-yr.-old brindle-&-white neutered male Boxer who is being fostered from PACC in Tucson. He is not the least bit shy. Good with meeting new people and loves attention. Is not food aggressive at all. So far has not been destructive. Is working on his leash manners. Knows his name and pays attention. Gets along great with most other dogs. Very aggressive with cats and horses. Vaccinated, microchipped, and house-trained. Contact Diane at (520) 227-9825. (courtesy posting)

Benson is an 11-yr.-old neutered male Red Heeler who is a delightful companion dog that has had 3 owners in his lifetime, all friends of each other. He started out as a Tucson rescue puppy, 6 months old, found along Benson Highway, hence his name. He was adopted by Rita, an English teacher, who had him about 5 years, but had to move into a small condo, so she gave him to her friend June, who had a bigger yard. June kept Benson for 5 more years, until she passed away, at which time Martin inherited him. Martin already has 8 dogs and needs to find a home where Benson can be the only dog. Benson is super sweet, loves chilling on the sofa with you, car rides, short walks and most of all...belly rubs! He is a wonderful companion dog and has a very cheery disposition but doesn't want to share his owner with other dogs. Good with children; unknown with cats. He has the nickname "Red Snapper" because he likes to snap his teeth together when he is happy! Benson deserves to be in a home where he can do what he does best: being your best friend! Up to date with shots, vet records available, house-trained.

Peanut is a 2-yr-old tan-&-white female Pit Bull mix who is full of energy and loves everyone. She needs to play! Kids would be great for her. She is good with other dogs, unknown with cats. She was found in an unpleasant situation of neglect and it is possible she has never been kept in a house. She will be spayed and vaccinated before adoption.
