Friends for Life animal rescue has a stray that lost its way.

Tanner is “a handsome Pit blend estimated to be about a year old and weighs about 45-50 pounds,” said rescue spokeswoman Jannelle Cosgriff.

The dog was found wandering the streets and “sadly, no one came forward to claim him. Now he's in search of his forever home with a new family.”

Tanner is living with a volunteer from the rescue group and Cosgriff said she and her colleagues have learned a few things.

“He does great with other dogs, however, he does not like cats, so Tanner needs a cat-free home,” she said.

The dog is neutered, vaccinated, licensed and microchipped.  His adoption fee is $110.

Prospective owners can contact 480-497-8296, ffldogs@azfriends.org or azfriends.org.

Meanwhile, The Phoenix Animal Care Coalition is teaming up with Earnhardt Ford for a pet adopt-a-thon 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 25, at Earnhardt Ford, 7300 W. Orchid Lane, near the I-10 and Ray Road. Past events between Earnhardt and the coalition have found homes for 750 animals. More than 40 rescue groups will be on hand, hoping to find homes for at least 60 animals.
