Dear Circle of Compassion For Animals,
Thanks to you, more than 2,860 animals in Yavapai County have been saved in 2017. On behalf of them, and all of us at YHS, thank you for giving these furry friends hope, a new future, and a loving home to call their own.
This year our family fostered a litter of four kittens just five or six weeks old: Judas, Jasmine, Jolene, and Jordan. They stayed with us for a month. A man in Prescott found these kittens without a mother and did his best to care for them for a couple weeks, but he needed help with these babies and ultimately came to Yavapai Humane. They needed a lot of love and time to grow; and, I must admit, it was hard to say goodbye to them but I knew they were ready to go. Without your support, these kitties could not have received the care they needed and likely wouldn’t have survived, Today they are safe and loved. Judas, Jolene, and Jordan all have forever homes. Jasmine has made it through medical complications and, though she is a special needs cat, our team is working this holiday to find Jasmine and other wonderful shelter pets their perfect family.
This year, your support made stories like Judas, Jasmine, Jolene and Jordan’s possible.
Yavapai Humane simply couldn’t have helped the many deserving animals without you. Your help has made a real, lasting impact in the lives of these animals in need.
In the last year, we have experienced much change. We established a 3-year partnership with the animal control agencies of Yavapai County, Prescott, and Prescott Valley. This will assure that animals who are retrieved by Animal Control receive the care necessary and, whenever possible, returned to their owners. Others will be readied for adoption.
Through this change, there have been many outstanding constants: our staff and volunteers’ dedication, the leadership of our executive team (read more about this fantastic group later in this very newsletter), the high quality of care for our animals, and YOU—our compassionate friend and faithful supporter.
In 2017, over 720 lost pets were reunited With their families, more than 1,860 pets were adopted, nearly 3,000 owned cats and dogs were spayed/neutered, 14 horses were rehabilitated and rehomed, and so much more. All thanks to your heart for our mission to promote and protect the health, safety, and welfare of companion animals in our community. I look forward to the work that we can do together for the animals’ sake in the coming months!
With gratitude and warm wishes for a wonderful New Year,
Board of Directors, President
