FOX 10: AHS’ Longest Resident Pup Gets Special Day Out
- Gigi is a 6-year-old brindle Shar-pei mix who was transferred to the Arizona Humane Society in early May from Maricopa County Animal Care and Control as part of AHS’ Project Reachout Program. Project Reachout, AHS’ partner assistance program, is a lifesaving program that transfers pets from other animal welfare organizations, including Maricopa County Animal Care and Control, when space on AHS’ adoption floor allow.
- Now, 90 days later, Gigi is AHS’ longest shelter resident and is still waiting for her furever home, so AHS’ volunteers treated her to a special day out of the shelter. A day that included McDonald’s Sausage McMuffins, Starbucks Puppuccinos, pool time and even more love than normal.
- Gigi is available for adoption at the Arizona Humane Society’s Nina Mason Pulliam Campus for Compassion. Interested adopters do need to set an appointment by visiting www.azhumane.org/adopt and should list Gigi as the pet of interest. Gigi’s adoption fee is $135 and she does need to be the only dog in her new home, but has lots of love (and burps!) to give and is the perfect size at 50 pounds.
