We at the Humane Society of Central Arizona are very focused on our animals. Therefore, most of the Adoption Options articles are also focused on them. But today’s article is going to be a little different. We are going to talk about some of the things HSCAZ offers our community besides animal care.
The photos in this week’s article feature animals with beautiful coats. They represent just one small sample of the many beautiful animals who are looking for homes this spring at Payson Humane Society.
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.
As we head into winter, we usually see a drop in the number of animals coming into the shelter — especially puppies and kittens. But this year, it’s not working out that way. The number of animals is increasing.
