Indio is a young Siberian that was rescued from a Tucson Shelter last November. He came to us scared, sick and covered with bite wounds in varying stages of healing. He had an intestinal infection and was terrified of everything. When he saw another dog, he would hit the ground. Indio’s foster parents have worked with him, given him lots of love and helped him gain back his confidence, so he’s a much happier dog now. But in the course of veterinary trips for treatment of wounds and infections, we found out that Indio has juvenile cataracts and is almost blind. We think that this contributed in large part to his fears. We took him to a veterinary ophthalmologist for an evaluation and because his retinas are healthy, Indio is an excellent candidate for successful cataract surgery. The estimate for both eyes is between $3600 and $4400.
Since Indio is so young, less than 18 months old, we really want to give him his sight back. This is a huge expense for ASHRA so we need to raise more funds before he can have the surgery. Please help Indio get his sight back. You can donate via our home page or send a check to ASHRA, Inc. PO Box 14801, Scottsdale, AZ 85267. All donations are tax deductible.

SAVE YOURSELF SOME FRUSTRATION, PLEASE READ CAREFULLY:ALL dogs will be spayed or neutered prior to adoption. ASHRA will not adopt out an unaltered animal, period, so don't bother asking! Vaccinations are also included. We require an adoptive home to have a yard with at least a 6' fence around it, preferably with a dog door. If you do not have a fenced yard - you will NOT qualify for adoption. You must be in your majority (not a minor) to adopt a Siberian Husky from ASHRA. Please read our Adoption Requirements.
You and your family may find it beneficial to invest in some training for the new member of your pack. ASHRA works with several trainers and different styles of training. Here are a few that we recommend.
