Pretty Faces Need New Places



Payson Humane Society is pleased to present you with this week's pretty faces needing new places. These pets are fine, loving animals who would be forever grateful to find a comfortable, caring home.

To meet them, or other pets available for adoption, visit the Payson Humane Society animal shelter, located just south of Main Street at 812 S. McLane Rd. Hours are 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday. For more information, please call (928) 474-5590.


Sam is a 1-year-old pale orange neutered male tabby cat with a soft, long fur coat. He will need regular grooming, but that's OK, because he doesn't mind. Sam is a delight to have around with his sunny disposition, especially if he gets a daily fix of sunshine. He likes to play peek-a-boo and chase string or mouse toys. He gets along great with other cats.


Marley is a 3-year-old neutered male cat. His pride and joy is his long, plush black coat, which he enjoys having combed so he looks his best. He can be a very affectionate cat and loves to talk to you when the mood suits him. Marley gets along well with the other cats in his enclosure because he pretty much minds his own business.


Sprout is a 2-year-old spayed female shepherd mix. She has a wonderfully expressive face, with eyes like Cleopatra. Her golden brown coat is short and easy to care for. Sprout is an affectionate and devoted type of dog with people of all ages. She does have issues with other dogs as well as cats, therefore we recommend she be the only pet in the household. She is housebroken and well behaved. She handles easily on leash and is obedient and responsive to commands. Sprout is a model car passenger and is good about staying in her own yard.


Dakota is a 5-year-old spayed female red chow. Her coat is of the smooth variety, thus very easy to care for. The sheen and rich color of her coat attest to the fact that she is in prime, healthy condition. She is the perfect weight for her frame. If you're looking for protection, Dakota may be the dog for you, for she may look formidable, yet she is friendly and well behaved. She is very easy to walk on leash despite her size, and she listens to what you want her to do. She is a sweet lover girl who wants to be liked by everyone she meets. She is a little pickier about her dog friends, though, and may need to be the only dog in the household.


Jake is a very handsome neutered male heeler mix. His short coat is cream-colored and his eyes are an amazing golden topaz color with black eyeliner. Jake is a gentle and sensitive boy, quiet and unassuming. He is so easy to walk, like you'd hardly know he's on leash. He loves to play with other dogs at the dog park and wears himself out, he has such a good time. He will fit in well in a home with a calm atmosphere where he gets lots of hugs and kisses. Jake is very clean and does not like to potty in his kennel, therefore we presume he is housebroken. Although he can be shy at first, this happy boy will end up sitting in your lap like he has always belonged to you.
