Donations A Blessing And A Necessity For Shelter




Click on Friday's Pet Gallery for a close up view of each pet.

The Humane Society of Central Arizona is its own, private 501(c)3 non-profit organization. We are not associated in any way with any other shelter, rescue group or humane society. We have no connection with the Humane Society of the United States, or the Arizona Humane Society. We rely on private donations to keep the shelter up and running.

We are very appreciative of the donors we have and are able to provide for the animals in our care because of you. Our donors and our volunteers are truly a blessing and we couldn’t do it without you.

Sometimes people come in and want to know specific items that we need. Though all donations are helpful, we understand that sometimes you want to know that a specific item you purchased will be put to use, and we appreciate that. I have put together a list of items that the shelter can always use. If you have a donation that is not listed here but you think we can use it, please call and ask, or just bring it by. We always welcome gift cards to places like Walmart, Home Depot, Ace Hardware, Staples, etc.

The HSCAZ shelter is located at 602 W. Wilson Court, just south of Main Street off McLane Road. Hours are Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Tuesday and Thursday from 1:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Closed Sunday and holidays. To mail a donation, send your check to HSCAZ, P.O. Box 242, Payson, AZ 85547. Visit us online at

Following are just a few of the wonderful pets currently available for adoption.




Any more room on the couch? If you’re looking for a buddy to hang out with and watch TV, Chopo is your dog! He’s a little slow, a little overweight, but all cuddles. Chopo loves people, especially those that give belly rubs. He gets along with dogs of a similar energy level, but doesn’t care for rowdy dogs. He’s neutered, microchipped and up to date on shots. All he needs now is a loving home with extra couch space!




Chauncey is very outgoing and loving boy. He always has the biggest smile on his face when anyone walks up to his kennel to say hello! Chauncey is a playful guy and can be a little mouthy when asking for attention, so older kids or dog-savvy families are best. He is social with most dogs, but likes to be able to choose his friends. Other dogs should be tolerant of a rough and rowdy play style!




Danny is a sweet boy still working on his confidence. He loves people and will follow them around to be cuddled. He does get a little intimidated by fast movements — both from people and dogs — so he does best with calmer friends. Danny likes nothing better than to crawl in his person’s lap for petting, his tail wagging like crazy! Danny has lived with cats and smaller dogs. He is house trained, microchipped and up to date on all shots. If you have a little patience and a lot of love, Danny will make a wonderful best friend.




Asiago is an outgoing kitten who loves to play. If he isn’t curled up with one of the other kittens for a nap, then he can be found running around the kitten house chasing toys or playing tag. He is neutered, up to date on vaccines and will be microchipped prior to adoption.




Colby is Asiago’s brother. He too is extremely playful and sweet. Like most kittens, he is adventurous and lovable. He is current on vaccinations, neutered and will be microchipped prior to adoption.




Nala is a feisty little girl with loads of personality and spunk. She is adorable and loves to play around. She is still learning how to socialize and interact with other animals, so an ideal home for her would be one without other animals, or one that has time to work with her on socializing. She is spayed, current on vaccines and microchipped. She is currently available for adoption at our Payson PetSmart.
