As always, there are many animals at PHS. And so there is a never-ending need to keep funds coming in to support these animals, as well as raise the money needed to build our new facility.
This fall PHS is very busy planning some fun fund-raisers.
There is the first annual Payson Humane Society calendar, where you are given the opportunity to have your pet's photo placed on any given day of the year. This is a first come, first served opportunity, so if you have a special day, you need to call or e-mail Ellie Watson @ firstname.lastname@example.org and get your photos in.
A benefit dance is being held from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., Friday, Sept. 14 in the bingo hall of Mazatzal Casino. The well-known and local favorite band "Junction 87" is providing the entertainment.We will be holding a silent auction, a 50/50 drawing, there will be blitz items, as well. The entry fee is only $5 and tickets will be available at the door. It is at this event where we will be auctioning off the front cover of the calendar to the highest bidder.
If you cannot attend the dance, you can mail or bring your sealed bid to the shelter at 812 S. McLane, mark it "Attention Ellie Watson." Sealed bids will NOT be accepted after midnight Sept. 13.Also, if you're not at the dance you will not be able to counter your bid, as the final bidding will be completed that night.
At the door we will also be accepting donations of puppy and kitten food and always needed gift cards from local stores that sell these items, as we do have very limited storage space.
There is also the world famous "chili supper" coming up, plus a golf tournament is planned at Chaparral Pines in November.
If you would like more info on any on these events please call us at the shelter (928) 474-5590.
We also encourage every to visit us on the web at www.paysonhumanesociety.com or www.petfinders.com.
Or just stop by and meet all the dogs and cats that are waiting patiently for their loving forever homes.
