Domestic Cat    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    This little kitty is Sassy. She is around 1-2 yrs old and is a grey and white Tabby. She was briefly in a home with an older couple that had older teenagers in the home. She was fine with them but would probably be best going to a new home with older kids also. There were other dogs and cats in the home and Sassy did ok with them. She was allowed to go outdoors but does just fine indoors. She is a quiet kitty and laid back. She always uses her litterbox. Her owner said she was a very friendly kitty and listens well and did come when they called her. They only had her for 3 months and decided they just had to many animals so turned ... (Read More)her in to find a new home. If you are interested in Sassy please give us a call at the Benson Shelter at 520-586-3600. Her adoption fee will be $72 to cover her spay and vaccinations.

Lab Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Needs Vaccinations 

    This little girl is named Jazz. She is about a year old and is a Lab mix. She has been in a home with kids from ages 5 yrs to 13 yrs and she was always gentle and tolerant with them. Her owner said she is good with other dogs but doesn't know about cats. She has been an outdoor only dog so will need to be housetrained. She can be just a little bit shy but should warm up quickly. Her owner didn't have the time to spend with her and wanted her to find a home where her people can play with her and spend time with her. If you would like to adopt Jazz please contact the Benson Shelter at 520-586-3600. Her adoption fee will be $80 to cover ... (Read More)her vaccinations and spay. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-01-24-00286Soldier (male)

Shar-Pei Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    This nice old man is now called Soldier. He is an older dog, maybe around 8 years old and looks to maybe be a Sharpei mix. Soldier was left tied up at one of our local veterinarian practices and came to me. He wasn't feeling very well but we got him doctored up and he's feeling much better now. As far as I can tell he seems to be ok with other dogs, at least females, not sure about males yet. He would probably be best in a home with an older couple with either older kids or no kids as he is a little older dog and quick moving kids or lots of noise makes him nervous. He may be housetrained and he does walk on a leash. He also likes ... (Read More)sleeping on his blanket on top of his bed. I think Soldier is going to be a very sweet older man for someone who is just looking for an older companion. Soldier's adoption fee will be $80 to cover his neuter and vaccinations but he will qualify for our sponsorship program since he is an older dog and will be harder to place. If you are interested in Soldier please contact the Benson Shelter at 520-586-3600. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-01-15-00200Moose (male)

American Staffordshire Terrier    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Female Dogs Only, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    This big guy is Moose! He is an American Staffordshire Terrier about 7-8 months old. Moose fits his name, he is a big playful lug! He is great with people and would be fine with kids, maybe older ones since he is such a handful and could knock small kids down. He is not good with small dogs and may not be good with other males so a large female may be a good fit, but a meet and greet would have to be done to see how they will get along. He did have a female in his home that he was fine with. No cats! This guy is really quite a handsome boy and loves to have attention. He would thrive in a home with some training to make him the dog ... (Read More)he has the potential to be. He does need secure fencing at least 6 feet tall as he can jump shorter fences. IF you would like to adopt Moose please contact the Benson Shelter at 520-586-3600. His adoption fee will be $80 to cover his neuter and vaccinations. (Less)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    This boy's new name is Gage. He is a Heeler mix, about a year old. Gage was a stray that was never claimed so we don't really have a lot of information about him. He is a very friendly dog and loves to play. The man that found him said he was ok with his female dog but we don't know how he is with males. As playful as he is he should be fine with kids and we don't know how he is with cats. He has a lot of fun playing with stuffies and he likes his chew bones. If you would like to adopt Gage please call the Benson Shelter at 520-586-3600. His adoption fee will be $80 to cover his neuter and vaccinations.

Rescue Me ID: 14-11-15-00010Owen (male)

Rhodesian Ridgeback Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    This young guy is now called Owen. He looks to be a possible Ridgeback mix about a year old and already neutered. He was a stray that was never reclaimed. He is a very energetic dog, very playful and friendly. Not sure how he is with other dogs so meet and greet would be best to see how he gets along with your dog. He will walk on a leash but can't say if he's house trained. Owen is a really good dog but could use a little training. Haven't seen him around kids yet either so can't say how he is with them, he's probably be good with older kids but not small kids due to his playfulness he may be to rough for them. If you are interested ... (Read More)in Owen then give us a call at the shelter 520-586-3600. His adoption fee will be $25 since he's already neutered and that covers his vaccinations. (Less)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Low Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    This guy is Ghost. He was a stray picked up by the school and never claimed. He looks to be a Shepherd mix and a little older dog, maybe 7 yrs. or so. We don't have a lot of information about him since he was a stray, he does walk on a leash but I don't know if he's house trained. He has always been friendly enough with us but I haven't observed him around kids. He doesn't seem to do well with other male dogs but may be ok with a female, would be best to do a meet and greet to see how they get along. Also can't say how he would be around a cat. If you're interested in meeting Ghost please contact us at the shelter 520-586-3600. His ... (Read More)adoption fee will be $80 to cover his neuter and vaccinations. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-10-15-00495Angel (female)

Pit Bull    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Needs Vaccinations 

    This little girl is Angel. She was a stray that no one ever claimed and she is now looking for her new forever home. Angel is a Pitbull about 8-9 months old. She is a very sweet little girl and needs to have a very good home. She is very submissive and is fine with other dogs, may even be a little shy of other dogs. She may be ok with cats, haven't had her around any, but with her temperament I think she would be fine. She will make a nice family dog and will be ok with kids. She needs some work on leash training as she does more of a belly crawl and I can't say if she's housetrained since she was a stray. If you would like to adopt a very ... (Read More)sweet little girl then please contact the Benson Shelter at 520-586-3600. Her adoption fee will be $80 to cover her spay and vaccinations. (Less)

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs Vaccinations 

    Meet Onyx! She came to us as a stray from the Whetstone area and was never reclaimed. She looks to be a Pit mix, maybe 4 years old and quite possibly spayed. Onyx is a really sweet girl and very energetic, doesn't hold still long! She seems to be ok with males but not females, but would be best to do a meet and greet with your dog to make sure they will get along. With the personality that she has she should be fine with kids, might knock young ones down with all her energy though. Can't say if she's housetrained since she was a stray but she does walk on a leash. If you would like to adopt this beautiful girl please give the Benson ... (Read More)Shelter at 520-586-3600.

Catahoula Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    Hi, I'm Duke. I'm a 3 yr old, male, Catahoula mix. My owner's brought me in to find a new home because they don't have a fenced yard and I kept breaking my chains and they couldn't keep me in and they were getting in trouble with animal control. I had young kids in my home and was always gentle and tolerant of them. I also had a female dog in my home, but my owners said I get along with all other dogs, but I'm not good with cats or chickens. I am housetrained and was allowed in the house to sleep at night in the daughter's bed, or in bad weather but otherwise I was tied up during the day in the yard. I have never been in a fenced yard ... (Read More)but if you have a 6 foot fence that should be sufficient to keep me in. My owners said I'm a good guard dog and that I also like to play fetch with balls or sticks. So if you're looking for a good dog that just needs a little training to make me a better dog then you should call the Benson Shelter at 520-586-3600. My adoption fee will be $30 to cover my neuter and vaccinations. (Less)

Health: Needs to be Spayed, Needs Vaccinations 

    Hi, my name is Brittany! I'm a female, Hound mix, about 3 years old. I need to find a new family as my old family couldn't take care of me or my puppies anymore. I was in the home with kids that were 12 and older but I am gentle and tolerant with them so would probably be good with younger children also. I am not very good with other dogs, might be ok with a male but not females, would probably be best as an only dog though. I was also an outdoor dog so if you would like to adopt me you would have to housetrain me. I do walk on a leash pretty well and the kids used to take me for walks every day. I can jump a 3 ft. fence so would need ... (Read More)fencing that is taller than that. I am very friendly and good natured and have a great personality. If you're looking for a nice friendly dog to become a new family member then you should think about adopting me! Please contact the Benson Shelter at 520-586-3600.

    Hi, my new name is Cory. I'm a male, Lab/Pointer mix around 2 years old. I'm a really affectionate dog that loves people although I may need to be a single dog, I might be ok with a submissive female, but you would have to bring your dog in to meet me. I'm really playful and although I'll chase a ball I just will not bring it back. I do walk well on a leash, but since I was a stray that was never claimed the shelter can't say if I'm housetrained. I have a great temprament and should be fine with children. If you would like to make me a member of your family then you should contact the shelter at 520-586-3600. My adoption fee will be ...
