Thanks For ‘Payson’



We just wanted to let you know that “Payson,” our certified therapy dog, who we adopted as a 5-week-old puppy back in 2000 at the Payson animal shelter, has just passed away from complications of old age.

He was a fantastic therapy dog and has made a few thousand people smile at hospitals, nursing homes, child crisis centers, YMCAs, schools, and more. “Payson” was the love of our life and he will be deeply missed.

Thank you city of Payson and thank you Payson animal shelter for the adoption of a puppy we named “Payson.”

We are proud to know we adopted an animal from your town’s shelter and that he led a productive and fruitful life as an active service dog in society.

Marc and Patti Stern, Mesa
