The Season of Kindness 

Snow Globes Teach Kindness Jezi and Maggie; Seniors Find a Home Daisy’s Senior Fund Helps Senior Dogs Home for the Holidays – Half-Price Adoptions! Have You Seen Our Lobby Shop…Lately?

 Snow Globes Teach Kindness

The Verde Valley Humane Board visited the Cottonwood Public Library for the library’s weekly Family Craft Hour. The Verde Valley Humane Board assisted the kids in making snow globes containing snow scenes with pets. The kids also listened to a story and learned about winter pet care as one of Verde Valley Humane’s “Kindness to Animals” education programs.

Jezi and Maggie Found their Forever Home for the Holidays

Remember Maggie and Jezi? Their sad story found a happy ending. They have their home for the holidays and forever. Jezi and Maggie, a bonded pair, became two of our senior residents when one of our neighbors saw someone let two small dogs out of a car near the shelter. The little guys began running towards the mountain. The tiny abandoned dogs wouldn’t have survived long loose at the base of Mingus. Luckily the neighbor was able to entice them into her car and bring them to us. Maggie, a little black and tan Chihuahua, was 13 years old and weighed 11 pounds. Jezi, a white longish-haired Chihuahua mix, was 9 years old and weighed just 6 pounds. Both seniors were friendly and adorable. Reva, an adopter of Cashew, one of our shelter dogs, saw Jezi and Maggie on our Facebook page. Jezi reminded her of their dog that had passed not long before. She and her husband fell in love with Jezi and her companion Maggie. Now Maggie and Jezi are in trial adoption with Reva and her husband awaiting dental appointments. Reva says the two lovable little dogs settled easily into their new home with Cashew and another canine friend. She reported that they love car rides—which probably saved their lives. Jezi has begun behaving like the dog they’d lost, cuddling on laps and bossing the bigger dogs. Jezi’s even gaining weight.
Jezi and Maggie’s story is a great reminder that older dogs make great pets and can settle into a new home more easily than pups. Contributions to Daisy’s Senior Fund make it possible for you to help us help more dogs like Jezi, Maggie, and Daisy.

Home for the Holidays Half-price Adoption Fees

Our Shelter is Full!

Like most shelters throughout the country this has been a difficult year in the Verde Valley. More and more dogs and cats come to us unwanted, abandoned, injured and frightened. Due to personal and financial problems, housing, and moves to assisted living beloved pets end up in our shelter. Your donations help us find forever homes for all our great dogs and cats and help us care for them while they wait. We’re offering Half-Price Adoption Fees in hopes of placing more shelter dogs in happy homes.   Read the happy-ending story of Maggie and Jezi above. We believe you want us to continue helping dogs like them. Sometimes all these “strays” need is food and shelter, but often they need more. Your donation today will ensure we’re here for other pets in need.
Your gift today can help ensure the most vulnerable pets, the lost, the abandoned, and the orphans have a safe place and find a forever home.
