Featured Pet: Reese

Meet Reese!

Reese Cup is an absolutely sweet 7 year old female who was recently left behind when her family relocated. She is very used to being in a home with cats and children and loves other dogs too! She is fully house trained and just looking for her very own family again. She is up to date on shots and also microchipped. Reese weighs about 45 pounds…the perfect size!

The adoption fee of $175 helps with medical expenses incurred by the Rescue.

Education: Monsoon Safety Tips

Even the dry deserts of Arizona are prone to heavy rains, thunderstorms and flooding. Keep your pets safe with these Arizona Humane Society pet safety tips.

Keep Pets Inside During Dust Storms

Keep pets indoors. Even the calmest pet can become frightened and attempt to run away, jump over a backyard wall or escape under a gate.

Pets’ eyes are also more susceptible to damage from blowing dust and debris. Be sure to shelter your pet in a space that is safe from the wind.

Pets left outside are also more prone to Valley Fever, an airborne fungus that can lead to a lung infection and an intense course of treatment.

Dealing With Thunder Phobia

Many pets fear the sound of thunder and can experience increased anxiety. To help reduce this fear, there are several things you can do. Distract your dog by giving them a mental task, such as performing tricks or playing with a toy. Pick a room and create a safe haven for your pet with bedding and their favorite toys. Playing music or turning on the TV can also help drown out the sound of the storm. Calming products like Thundershirts and DAP (dog appeasing pheromones) have proven to be helpful at calming pets in many cases. If anxiety persists, consult your veterinarian for additional solutions.

Emergency Pet Kit & ID

Prepare a box with a supply of bottled water and pet food with an extra leash and collar that can quickly be grabbed in case of emergencies. Also include a copy of your pet’s medical records. Additionally, be sure your pet wears a collar, ID tag and is microchipped. A microchip greatly increases the odds that you will be reunited with your pet should it run away.
