Give Hope, Home To Shelter Pets


Meet some longtime residents of the Payson Humane Society animal shelter. They are all wonderful animals, deserving of loving homes. For one reason or another, they have been overlooked. Please visit them at the shelter at 812 S. McLane Road and consider giving them a chance at a new and happy life with you.


Lucky is a one-year-old male Catahoula/Lab mix. He is a very shy dog, but he loves to run around and play once he gets to know you. According to a previous owner, Lucky would probably be best in a home that has other dogs. He is housebroken, but was given up because the previous family was too active. He would like a family with older children or adults. Because he is so shy, Lucky needs a patient and loving home with a quiet family. Please come visit Lucky to find out what a sweet dog he really is.


My name is Buddy. I have been with a family for a long time, after all, I'm going on 10 years old. I came to the shelter because my family had to give me up. I'm not a bad looking guy, a little overweight, which means I could be a good walking companion. My breed is a Rottie mix and my coat is black and tan. I'm neutered and have all my shots. When I first came in, I was hopeful that I would find a new family, but no one has shown up to visit me yet. Please come in and meet me. Once we meet, I know you would never want to part.


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.


Shadow is a 3-year-old neutered male part Border collie. He was brought into the shelter as a stray and no one claimed him.

He is really a sweet fellow with lots of energy. He would be great in an active family environment. Please come and take a look at him; he may be just right for you.


Prissy's life had taken a turn for the worst. Her world was turned upside down. Not only was she a single mom with three tiny kittens to care for, she was also homeless. It appears her human family moved away in the night and left her to fend for herself. Luckily for Prissy, a concerned neighbor brought her and the kittens to the Payson Humane Society. Life immediately improved for Prissy and her kittens -- Coco, Fluffy and Taffy -- when they went into a wonderful foster home. They were pampered, groomed and loved daily by their foster mom. Now Prissy and her kittens are up for adoption at the Payson Humane Society.
