Tucson "Dog Patch" Dump Site: News and Update

TUCSON DUMPING GROUND: A horrific scene was discovered in the desert near Tucson, AZ. What appears to be an animal dumping ground, has gotten the attention of the rescue community. With the combined efforts of  several rescue organizations, including Copper's Chance Emergency Rescue Team, plans are now underway to trap and rescue the living dogs that are abandoned, starving and injured.

We will be mobilizing our rescue mission 12/26/09.

 UPDATE: 12/28/09. Cooper's Chance ERT, with several other volunteers, responded to the horrific situation in the desert south of Tucson. The area, a known dumping site for dead and live animals is called "Dog Patch" by locals. This expansive desert has several residents living within feet of the trash, debris, animal remains, feral dogs, wild life and immigrant camps that cover the area. When we first arrived, we immediately spotted 4 feral dogs in the distance; however they proved to be too quick and were not caught.  A young, female Sheppard was later caught by our fellow rescuers and brought in for food, fresh water, medical care and a warm blanket to sleep on. Although we anticipated a much larger amount of dogs rescued, we did receive invaluable information and experience on this location and its ongoing problem. Cooper's Chance ERT will lead several more missions into the Dog Patch to respond and recover as many living animals as possible.

To make a donation please see the list below for the items we still need to make this mission a success. Or you can donate via PayPal. Every amount helps! These neglected, starving animals will need emergency vet care, food, shelter, medications, spay, neuter, vax, etc. Please make a donation to give them a second chance.
