TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - A local animal shelter is looking for parents to rescue three dogs.

P.V., Petunia and Cami have all been at the Benson Animal Shelter for quite some time and all want a nice home.

P.V. is a male Pitbull who is approximately two to three years old.  Representatives from the shelter say he is very friendly, full of energy, gives lots of kisses and doesn't bite. He loves attention and may be housetrained. 

P.V.'s previous owner had to go away and left him with a friend who never picked him up from the shelter. Take P.V. home for $84.

Petunia is a female Pitbull who is just a puppy at around one year old. Volunteers walk Petunia and say she is very sweet.  Petunia may not get along with cats.  Petunia was found as a stray and does need some training since she jumps on her owners to get attention.  The adoption fee for this loving lap dog is $104 to cover spay and vaccinations.

Cami is a female Boxer mix who is around 2 years old.  She was also a stray who was never claimed.  Cami will be available for adoption in four weeks to allow her milk to dry up from recently having puppies; after this she will be spayed.  

For more information, contact the Benson Animal Shelter at (520) 586-3600.
