Interested adopters can view available pets, like Ghost Bear, and schedule an appointment online at azhumane.org/adopt.

As handsome and cuddly as they come, Ghost Bear most certainly has earned his name as he is often described as a big ‘ole teddy bear. The 7-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier mix was originally transferred to the Arizona Humane Society from Maricopa County Animal Care and Control all the way back in June through AHS’ Project Reachout Program. This collaborative program helps bring in pets from shelters that are overwhelmed when AHS has space to adopt them out, giving them a second chance at finding their forever home.
