Can you help? Pit bull needs temporary home

PHOENIX - The Arizona Humane Society is looking for a temporary foster home for "Zion" while he waits to be reunited with his military mom in Hawaii.

In December 2011, the 4-year-old entered the AHS Project Active Duty program that places pets of active military personnel in foster home throughout their deployment, according to a Humane Society news release.

Zion has been fortunate. He has spent the better part of the last two years with one set of foster parents, one of whom is retired military.

But they are snowbirds and each summer, Zion ends up at the AHS Campus for Compassion waiting for them to return.

The loveable pit bull spends every day out of his kennel and in the office of an AHS staff member.

According to the news release, as much as they would love to keep Zion to themselves, AHS staffers would be even happier to get Zion into a foster home for his last months with AHS.

Zion will soon be headed to Hawaii to be reunited with his mom, but must undergo a 120-day quarantine period.

AHS says Zion would do best in a home with no cats and no dogs, or maybe just one dog who doesn't mind playing with the active pit bull.

Anyone interested in fostering Zion or becoming part of AHS' foster care program can attend the next AHS foster orientation on Saturday, July 27 from noon to 3 p.m. at the Sunnyslope Training Center located at 9226 N. 13th Avenue, Phoenix, Arizona 85021. Be sure to sign up at www.azhumane.org .
