About this blog

"Best Friends" is a blog about Tucson’s animals and the people who love them.

Welcome! We want this to be your go-to place for news about animals in Tucson — from fun events to information about rescue groups and animals available for adoption. There’s a lot going on in Southern Arizona and we want to keep you informed.

We’re just getting started. If you have suggestions, questions or story ideas we’d like to hear from you. Send your emails to Inger Sandal at isandal@tucson.com
