Tucson’s Only No-Kill Shelter Struggles to Keep the Lights On

Tucson is on the verge of losing something that it can’t afford to lose: its only no-kill animal shelter.

This weekend, HOPE Animal Shelter Executive Director Susan Scherl took to the group’s Facebook page, asking for donations to help keep the doors open and the lights on:

It is with deep regret and profound sadness to inform you that HOPE is out of money. Without your help we will have to shut our doors. We are down to the bare bones and I will have to start letting staff go. The hardest part will be finding a place for the 100 animals currently in our care….. In our 8 years of existence we have never been at this point. Please understand that this couldn’t be more serious.
