Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum
2021 N. Kinney Rd., Tucson AZ 85743
Is it a zoo? A botanical garden? A museum? It is all three- and done to just about perfection! The Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum is a must do for out of towners and locals alike. The best way I can think to describe it is a living desert exhibit. You feel right in the middle of a very natural environment- but you are able to experience and learn about it in a way that you never could on your own. *During the summer months go as soon as they open to avoid the heat.

Foundation for Animals In Risk (FAIR)
FAIR does not operate a shelter- they foster the animals until they are ready to be adopted. You can visit this page to find a list of the adoption locations and times.
(We adopted Beans the cat from FAIR at the Oro Valley PetSmart, and I cannot express enough the joy that she has brought to all our lives! What a great little cat 😉

Paws N Critters
8271 N Oracle Rd, Oro Valley, AZ
Paws N Critters is a Rancho Vistoso based pet sitting service, with a number of pet sitters. They are licensed, bonded and insured. We have utilized them many times, and I can’t tell you how thrilled I have been with their service. In addition to be highly organized and professional, it is clear that the sitters all genuinely love animals and care for my pets as if they were their own. I received a photo in my email during my time away, and a text message every day to let me know all was well. Sandy and her team at Paws N Critters also are experienced with sitting pets that need medication or special attention.
They also offer pet walking and exercise. They even offer hiking in Catalina State park and Mt. Lemmon hikes!
Check out their website to see the rates and for more information.
