Saturday was a day to celebrate here at the Humane Society of Central Arizona. After being here for over a year, Aimes found his forever home. The day got better when his adopters decided one dog wasn’t enough and they wanted to take Kelly as well.
Aimes holds a special place in all of our hearts. I remember the day he came in. He was dirty, scared, and pretty thin. I was concerned about how well he was going to do. But a few days passed and he started to come to the front of his kennel, wagging his tail. Aimes is one of those dogs who actually did well being in the shelter environment for so long. Congratulations, Aimes and Kelly, on finding your forever home.
We all love a positive outcome for the animals here at HSCAZ. Sometimes, though, the outcome is not always positive. Every year, millions of animals in shelters across America are euthanized due to pet overpopulation. We can all make a difference to help brings these numbers down. Spaying and neutering is the first step. Irresponsible breeding needs to stop. Shelters are overflowing with unwanted animals that were purposely bred. You don’t have to buy a purebred dog or cat from a pet store either; 30 percent of animals in shelters are purebred. Contact your local shelter or rescue group when you’re ready to find a new companion and you can help make a difference, too.

Sprocket is a 1-year-old Rottweiler mix. She was brought in as a stray by Animal Control, but we were able to find out some of her history. She is a sweet, playful girl who is good with children and other dogs. She is house and leash trained and is used to being an indoor/outdoor dog. Sprocket is spayed and current on her vaccines. She will do best with a loving family who will give her plenty of time and attention.
Alfredo is a medium-haired tuxedo colored kitten. He is about 8 weeks old and is full of energy and spunk. He is loving, playful and gets along with other cats, but isn’t so sure about dogs just yet. He has been neutered and has received his first set of vaccines.
Brewster is a 6-month-old border collie mix. He and his brother were brought in as strays from Gisela. He loves to romp and play with the other pups here. He is still learning things like manners, basic commands and house and leash training. Puppies are a lot of work, but worth it in the end. He is very sweet and will make a great addition to a loving family. He is neutered and current on vaccines.
Katie is a beautiful, 9-year-old spayed female tabby. She was surrendered to us when her owner had to move and couldn’t take her along. She is an easygoing girl who gets along with everyone. She is litter box trained and very neat and clean. She would be a great companion for an older person who just wants a kitty to love on. She is current on her vaccines as well.
Little Man is a 4-year-old Mastiff/Shepherd mix. He is great with kids of all ages and other dogs. He LOVEs to play with toys and to play in the water. He is very loyal, loving and obedient. He is also house and leash trained, neutered, and current on vaccines. Little Man would love to be your “Main Man.”
Shylyn is a 4-year-old Mastiff/Shepherd mix. She is good with other dogs and children and has been around both all of her life. She is pretty easygoing and would do well in a calmer environment. She is affectionate, loyal and intelligent. She even sits on her back legs and “prays.” She is spayed, current on her vaccines and is house and leash trained.
