One of the Arizona shelter homes is undergoing immediate repair work and impacting dozens of pet animals.
The Arizona Humane Society (AHS) has asked people to help in finding homes for 42 pet animals. AHS is requesting interested community to adopt the pets from their shelter home because of ‘emergency electrical repairs’ that will close an important section of the Sunnyslope Campus.
The Sunnyslope Campus is carrying immediate electrical repair work from Wednesday that is estimated at around $16,000.
AHS mentioned in a press release, the places damaged are Sunnyslope dog and cat adoption, cat hospital, and cat holding areas, the behavior room, and two important medical places, namely the cat’s Ring Room and Mutternity Suites for moms and their kids.
AHS in the release also said that it managed to provide new families to 449 pet animals within the week and there are around 42 animals that still need homes and have been shifted to ‘the Nina Mason Pulliam Campus for Compassion,’ situated in Phoenix at 1521 W. Dobbins Road.
Spokeswoman of AHS, Kelsey Dickerson informed on Monday, earlier APS visited Sunnyslope Campus evaluating a different problem and noticed that its electrical panel was in need of immediate repair.
Arizona Humane Society took it over Twitter to inform the news on August 12th and also asked for public help.
“As you can imagine, with power outages and things like that for these repairs, we really had to mobilize quickly to be able to get the animals out of those areas and into a safer spot where they’re going to be out of the heat.”
Dickerson further mentioned, if someone willing to adopt a new dog or cat, they can check for additional information online before visiting the shelter.
On 10th August, AHS had an adoption event ‘Empty the Shelter,’ that helped 449 pets find new homes, but failed to find new homes for the 42 pet animals that are waiting to be adopted at the shelter home.
AHS mentioned in a statement
“AHS is asking for the community’s help to get the remaining 42 adoptable pets into their forever homes as we expect kennels to fill up quickly.”
The 42 adoptable animals looking for new homes have been discounted or waived adoption charges, and for additional information, you can visit the official website of Arizona Humane Society at azhumane.org/adopt
“It’s just really important that if you can adopt, come out, clear out the remaining kennels that we have, so we can continue to fast-track the sick, injured and abused pets that we care for.”
