Volunteers needed at High Desert Humane Society

Dear Editor:

The High Desert Humane Society is alive and well. We survived the pandemic (hopefully it doesn’t come back), then fires and smoke, and now excessive heat and the fear of flooding. Through all of this, we have kept the rescues going even if the stores had to be closed. We could not have fundraisers during this time, so our income is way down. We had to stop the TTNR program for feral cats for a short time, but it is going again.

We are in need of volunteers. Our TTNR program needs drivers to get the cats to Mesa in order to be altered. This is one day every other week and it does take most of the day. The Thrift Store needs volunteers and these are four-hour shifts. Working in the store is fun and you get to see a lot of people. Both the Dog Rescue and the Cat Rescue need volunteers, and you can usually pick your hours. If interested please stop by the rescues or the stores and fill out a volunteer form. If you have filled out a form previously and were not called please try again. Some folders were lost when we made some changes and we apologize for this.

Mash Vet, who has been coming to Globe/Miami with their low cost clinic for nine years, is no longer able to come this far. They want us to bring our animals to them in Apache Junction. Appointments can be made for your animals through us and you can take them to AJ yourself. Altered Tails in Mesa is a very good low cost clinic and anyone can make an appointment for spaying, neutering and shots with them. Their number is 480-807-1200. Please get your pets altered and up to date on shots. Call us with any questions, at 928-961-5482.
