Puttin’ On the Dog-Arziona Humane Society
This event is all bark and no bite! Rally 'round the Humane Society of Southern Arizona to help the homeless animals of Arizona by attending this fun-filled charity event.

The night is filled with celebrity emcees, cherished pets modeling stylish fashions, delish hors d’oeuvres provided by the Tucson Originals and libations, an exceptional silent and live auction featuring pet-related products and a chance to have your pet’s photo in the 2012 Hot Dogs of Tucson calendar! Bring your dogs for a small fee and let them join in on the fun while feasting on a biscuit buffet! 520.321.3704, ext. 188, www.hssaz.org.
