Donations To Pit Bulls Are Helping

By Barbara Grijalva, KOLD News 13 Anchor

Investigators raided four locations and seized a total 150 dogs. Authorities found twenty two pit bulls from one location, eighteen at another. Officials with Pima County Animal Care say the pit bulls are doing well.

Police are investigating the local operation authorities say was breeding and training the pit bulls for fighting.

Pima County Animal Care officials say community donations are helping.

If you'd like to help, the shelter needs:

  • 4 and 8 quart galvanized metal bowls for food and water (the dogs chew them up).
  • The pit bulls also need unopened bags of dry dog food. The dogs with tooth problems need canned food.
  • Cash would help too.

The shelter asks that you indicate on your check or money order made out to "Pima Animal Care" that the money is for the Pit Bull Fund.

The shelter is located at 4000 North Silverbell Road.

Hours are 7:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m., though the shelter has the most staff on hand from 10:00 a.m. until 5 p.m.

    Thanksgiving dinner plans take a detour when it comes to a good deal. Shoppers were out, with their wallets out, at the Tucson Premium Outlets in Marana Thursday night, Nov. 23. But any signs of chaotic holiday shopping were muted, just as the shoppers had hoped.
