The Humane Society of Central Arizona has a mission statement that we proudly stand behind: “To provide shelter and compassionate care for animals who are lost, abandoned or homeless; to ensure that animals who come into our care are nurtured in a loving space while healing from fear, physical or emotional trauma, mistreatment or loss of a caregiver; to place animals into appropriate and loving homes through adoptions; to improve the lives of animals through education and example; to promote spay and neuter of companion animals. Because they matter.”
This week, I want to express my appreciation to the animals that enrich our lives and show us unconditional love. I also want to express my appreciation to the community for their tremendous support. To the board members who keep us on track and help us accomplish our goals. To our amazing donors, thank you so much for everything. To the wonderful volunteers, we couldn’t do it without you. And last but certainly not least, the staff. Working with these girls, I see an abundance of compassion, love and respect. Hard-working and dedicated are just a few of the words that can describe them. They are heroes to me and I want them to know they are greatly appreciated.
Because they matter, here are their picks from me to you.
