Early last week, a woman stood in the lobby, asking us to take her cat. She was moving, in financial distress, and couldn’t care for her cat anymore. It was a story we hear almost every day. The faces and circumstances change, but the end results are usually the same: more homeless pets waiting in kennels. She was visibly shaken as she filled out the paperwork. She seemed torn by her decision. But then she smiled, pulled herself together and stood a little taller. “At least I know he will be safe here, and you guys will find him a good home. I couldn’t bear to leave him if you weren’t a no-kill shelter.”
The holidays are upon us. This is the time of year when families get together to love, laugh and create new memories. Family dinners, gift exchanges and many other traditions take place.
These any many other homeless pets are available for adoption at the Humane Society of Central Arizona.
As members of the HSCAZ board of directors and staff, we are often asked how we can be actively involved in an organization that confronts the sad reality of animals who have been abandoned, mistreated, lost their human through no fault of their own.
The holiday season is upon us and we’ve put together a list of the 12 ways you can give to the animals at the HSCAZ shelter.
Thanksgiving is an eventful holiday for many people.
This Monday, Nov. 12 we celebrate Veterans Day, an official U.S. holiday honoring the service of our country’s armed service veterans.

In five years, a female cat and its offspring can produce a family tree of more than 11,000 cats, which is why Rim Country Friends of Ferals (RCFF) has worked to help manage the problem of feral cats.
So, are all you parents and pet owners ready for Halloween? I know I am.

October is my favorite month! The weather is lovely, fall decorations are going up throughout the town and it’s my birthday month.

It seems like lately we just can’t keep up with all the animals that are coming through the doors.
