Another year has come and gone. There were days we thought would never end, and days we looked up and said, “Where does time go?” There were days when we’d look around and say, “I give up,” only to turn around and keep going.
The Lonely Hearts Club — This group of animals are those who have been with us for longer than six months. You will see by their bios that their long stays really are no fault of their own. They are all good guys who were brought into this life by irresponsible pet owners who offered little or no stability, let alone training and tender loving care. We have given all these to them in large doses, and they have grown into beautiful animals.
The dog days of summer have arrived. And we’re not just talking about the weather, we’re talking about dogs.
It’s another busy day here at the Humane Society of Central Arizona.
2008 is now in the past. It was a very busy year here at the shelter. There were many highs and lows. We handled roughly 830 dogs, 608 cats and 14 “others.” Among the others were a pregnant mini goat, an angry Pot Bellied Pig, two geese, a couple of ducks, several bunnies, ferrets and a guinea pig.
