A mobile adoption event will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 7 at Home Depot, 2000 N. Beeline Highway. Come and meet some of the great dogs available for adoption from the Payson Humane Society. All dogs are already spayed or neutered and are current on all vaccines. They are ready to go home with you.
There are many more pets waiting for loving homes at the animal shelter, located at 812 S. McLane Rd. just south of Main Street. Stop by and meet them Monday through Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Blitzy is very friendly, gray tabby cat. She has been at the shelter since May. She would love the chance to be part of a family and to have a comfy lap to sleep on.
As the weather turns cool, what better time to welcome a soft and warm companion into your home.
Blonco is a gorgeous, longhaired white cat.
She is 3 years old.
Blonco is very loving to people but doesn't care for other cats, so she'll need to be an only cat.
LARRY, MOE and CURLY
Larry, Moe and Curly were picked up on Fossil Creek Road and brought to the shelter in August. They are fun-loving brothers who can be adopted separately. They are Rottie mixes who play well with others.
They are still young, but they will become big dogs, so they need room to grow and run.
Prissy has been at the shelter since March.
She has a great disposition and loves to be held and to talk about herself.
If you're looking for a great companion to snuggle up and visit with, Prissy is the girl for you.
Zoey is a Shar pei mix. She is a good-sized dog who will need a little training.
She likes to play in the water, and is very sweet and loving. She gets along well with people and other dogs.
Friends meeting Oct. 11
The Friends of the Payson Humane Society will meet at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 11 at Tiny's restaurant. Come join this group of animal lovers as we work on plans for our annual Chili Supper, and other upcoming events. We are looking for new people to work with us to build our new shelter and to make this the best year yet for Rim Country's homeless animals.
For more information about the meeting, call 468-8458. For more information about the Payson Humane Society, please visit our website at www.paysonhumanesociety.com.
Get ready for chili
The 10th annual chili supper benefit for the Payson Humane Society will take place from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 14 at the Elks Lodge.
The menu will consist of chili, mac and cheese, salad, rolls and homemade cupcakes.
We will once again feature silent auction items, a 50/50 raffle and "potluck" sales (selling decorated flowerpots which come with an additional gift). We will also be selling the final raffle tickets for both the dog quilt and the Friends of Ferals cat quilt, and will draw the winners for these two adorable quilts at the end of the evening.
This is one of our largest fund-raisers of the year, with the money earned going toward daily operating expenses for the shelter. Last year we raised over $7,000 for the homeless animals of Rim Country. Please join us in making this year's event just as successful.
If you have something to donate for the silent auction ($50 value or greater, please), or something of lesser value to use as a gift with a flowerpot, please contact Penny at 474-4648. Also, if you can donate some time to help out during the event or make cupcakes for the event, please call Penny to sign up.
Payson Humane Society needs volunteers to help supervise dogs in the play yard behind the shelter at 812 S. McLane Rd.
Each morning, dogs at the shelter are taken to the area for an hour of exercise. They have a great time running and playing and just being dogs. The activity does wonders for relaxing them, helping shy dogs become outgoing and making them more adoptable.
Several volunteers are needed to help keep this program going. People need to be in good physical condition and comfortable with handling 60-pound dogs. The hours are from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. Monday through Saturday.
If you would like to be part of this great program and can spare a couple of hours or so a week to make a shelter dog's life more enjoyable, please call 474-5590 and ask for Mike, the dog supervisor.
