Christmas Wish: A Loving Home For All


Despite the recent winter storm, freezing temperatures and slick, icy sidewalks, things are going pretty well here at the Humane Society of Central Arizona.

This past weekend, we participated in Petco’s “Think Adoption First” program and adopted out three of our adoptable dogs!

Our new building is under way and every morning we hear them out there making progress. Today, I watched the guys putting in frames for the windows; it was pretty exciting. And even though we are still full, our numbers aren’t that bad. We are able to house all the dogs inside to keep them warm at night. This is a good thing, but finding each of them a forever home is even better.

We love and care for the animals here like they are our own. We come to work thinking, “Maybe Carmen or Baby Girl or Abby will get adopted today.”

Santa asked me what I wanted when I took Aiden to see him at Swiss Village the day after Thanksgiving, and I told him, “For all the animals to find their loving, forever home.” Ask any volunteer, staff member or supporter of HSCAZ and I bet they’d say the same thing.

One thing we all believe in is happiness. You know by now that I believe that everything is better with a companion, especially the holidays. Dogs and cats are known for improving health and happiness, so why wouldn’t you adopt a new companion? Consider all the stress that the holidays can bring. Having a cat or dog to love on and pet is going to help relieve some tension, lower your blood pressure and, most of all, make you happy. We can all use a little more happiness in our lives, so come down to the shelter at 812 S. McLane Road and meet some of our adorable adoptables. All of our adoptable animals are spayed/neutered and up to date on vaccines.




Buster is a 10-month-old husky/pit mix. He is playful, very affectionate and loves being around people and other dogs. Buster was surrendered due to his owner’s personal issues and is eager to find a loving family he can call his own.




Pita is a playful 2-year-old Aussie/chow mix. He too was surrendered and is looking to find a loving, forever home. Pita is outgoing, loveable and he loves to play with other dogs.




Michael is a 6-year-old Golden mix. He and his buddy Jacob were found as strays here in Payson. Michael is a sweet dog with a kind disposition. He gets along with most dogs and is people oriented.




Jacob is a 5-year-old Hound. He was found as stray, along with his buddy Michael. Jacob is outgoing, curious and sweet. He gets along with most dogs and loves to be outside, sniffing around, like a typical hound.




Lily is a 10-month-old Maltese/Heeler mix. She LOVES to play with toys. She is very active and playful and will need a home that will give her plenty of exercise and attention. She still needs some help with leash and house training, and learning some basic commands.




Geo is an adorable 6-month-old aussie/spaniel mix. She was surrendered because her owner couldn’t care for her anymore. She is great with kids, is partially house trained and is super affectionate and outgoing.
