(Family Features) The average family is always looking for ways to save a little bit of cash. While some efforts to save money may seem small and insignificant, it’s beneficial to look at the big picture. By saving here and there where you can, the amount can really start to add up.

It’s that time of year again for the Southern Arizona Homebuilders Association (SAHBA) to host its annual Fall Home & Garden Show. This year, the event will be held on Oct. 18, Oct. 19 and Oct. 20 at the Tucson Convention Center.
Pima Animal Care Center has great respect for the educators in our community.
Thanks to a generous grant from PetSmart Charities, we’ll be having loads of pit bull-focused fun at our Adore-a-Bull Adoption Party! All bully breed dogs and puppies will have no adoption fee all weekend long, and all our other critters will be half-off. The specials will be honored at all locations, but come to the Main HSSA shelter for the party! The attractions include special gifts bags with cute car magnets for bully breed adopters; free copies of “Saving Audie” for families with children (while supplies last); free kids’ crafts; glitter tattoos, games and prizes for all; and more!
It happens like clockwork. Every spring, as temperatures rise, the Humane Society of Southern Arizona receives a flood of unwanted and abandoned kittens and puppies. “Litter season” is in full swing and the HSSA reports that it is taking in numerous litters every day. The situation is compounded by the fact that the HSSA has more than 300 animals currently in its care, including many long-term dogs and cats who continue to be overlooked.
To free up limited space for the barrage of youngsters who will soon be available for adoption, the HSSA is offering half-off adoption fees for all cats 5 months and older and all mixed-breed dogs 5 months and older and 25 pounds and over at all locations. As with every animal adopted from the HSSA, each dog and cat will go home microchipped, vaccinated, vetted and spayed or neutered. If you’ve been thinking about welcoming a pet into your family, the HSSA encourages you to find the perfect companion this weekend!
What: Furry Frenzy adoption weekend
When: Friday-Sunday April 5-7
Where: All Humane Society of Southern Arizona locations, including the main shelter at 3450 N. Kelvin Boulevard, PAWSH at Park Place and La Encantada and PetSmart on River and Orange Grove and I-19 and Irvington.

This past weekend at the Humane Society of Southern Arizona was excited by the results, thank to the Challenge Champion, Premiere Auto’s Scott Lehman – a dealer for the people, and pets.

In the 1970s, Gilda Radner of Saturday Night Live played a recurring character named Emily Litella who suffered from hearing loss. Emily appeared regularly on the "Weekend Update" portion of the show to annoyingly rebut an editorial because she misunderstood a word. (Why does Puerto Rico want to become a steak?) When she was corrected by the newscaster, she would always say "Never mind."
