Donations Needed For Shelter Pets


The 2012 Rescue Roundup is scheduled for Saturday, July 28. We’ll be at Wheeler Park in Flagstaff again and look forward to seeing you there! Mark your calendars for the 6th Annual Rescue Roundup!

What is the Rescue Roundup?

The Rescue Roundup is the biggest event in Northern Arizona to educate the public about adopting animals from shelters and rescue organizations. Over 40 different rescues, shelters and vendors attended the 2010 Rescue Roundup.

This event includes various demonstrations and canine activities that focus on alternative interests in canine involvement such as agility, disc dogs and herding. Animal-friendly and unique vendors also attend this venue to market and distribute their products.

The Rescue Roundup is not all dogs either! Look for cats and kittens from various rescues like Paw Placement and horses from Hands-on-Horses. The awesome dog rescues vary from AZ Chihuahua Rescue to AZ Lab and Giant Breed Rescue. Of course, the Humane Society of Central Arizona will be there as well with some of our adorable adoptables. So come out and show your support. You may meet your new best friend.

Wheeler Park is located at 112 W. Aspen Ave. in Flagstaff (on North Humphreys Street one block north of Santa Fe Avenue).

The new shelter is located directly behind the older shelter on South McLane Road just off Main Street (enter on the dirt driveway between the dip and Kyle’s Auto). Hours are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily. If you would like to make a monetary donation, mail checks to HSCAZ, P.O. Box 242, Payson, AZ 85547. We thank you for your support, and so do all the animals.




Bodie is a 7-year-old American Blue Heeler. He was surrendered to HSCAZ when his owners we not able to take them to their new home. Bodie is an outgoing dog who loves to play fetch and is still active. He gets along with cats and most other dogs and loves people. He knows some basic commands and is super smart. He is potty trained, walks well on a leash and likes to go for car rides.




Cookie is a 7-year-old Shepherd mix that was brought in because her owner had to move away and could not take her along. She is easygoing and affectionate. She gets along with other dogs and cats too. She knows basic commands and is well mannered and smart. She is house and leash trained as well.




Frosty is a 1-year-old Heeler mix. She was brought in as a stray by the police department. Frosty is very sweet and can sometimes be a little shy. She has a cute, wiggly personality and likes to have fun. She is outgoing, playful and appears to be friendly with other dogs and kids. She is potty trained and walks well on a leash.




Goblin is a 3-year-old orange tabby that was surrendered to HSCAZ because his owner could no longer care for him. He is an easygoing guy who is quiet but loves affection. He gets along with other cats, but has not been around dogs or younger children. He is still playful and is looking for a forever home to call his own.




Merlin is such a sweet guy! He was brought in as a stray, and must have gone through the TNR program because he has a tipped left ear. Merlin is far from feral though. He is one of the sweetest cats here. He loves people and will gladly climb into your lap or rub against you so that you will pet him. He is ok with the other cats, but mainly just sticks to himself. Merlin is about 3 years old, is litter box trained and very neat and clean.




Tonto is a 1-year-old Hound mix. He was adopted and returned because he can jump a 5-foot fence. The people who adopted him were very sad to return him and said the only issue they had was keeping him in the yard. So Tonto needs a secure, fenced yard. He loves other dogs and would benefit from being adopted into a home that has a dog he can play with. He is great with kids of all ages and even likes cats. Tonto is very sweet, smart and full of energy. He knows basic commands, is potty trained, crate trained and walks well on a leash.
