         As the HSOY Rescue team arrived at the shelter around 6:00 am Thursday morning they noticed something by the front door at the main entrance of the Humane Society of Yuma. Once they got close enough they realized that it was a dog that had been tied to the front door of the shelter and left sometime in the middle of the night. They immediately jumped into action, slowly approaching the dog which is a Pit Bull and not yet knowing if he was nice or not. Once the volunteers got close enough they realized that he was as sweet as they come and just wanted some help. They then took him into a kennel, provided him with food, water, a bed, a warm blanket and he is now in the care to the Humane Society of Yuma.  If you have any information about the owners of this dog please contact the shelter as soon as possible. 928-782-1621

The Humane Society of Yuma kicked off their BeHumane Educational Program this week by visiting Alice Byrne Elementary and educating the students about what it means to BEHUMANE. HSOY staff members visited every class with a pet and went over how to properly care for an animal and the differences between animal cruelty and abuse. "It is important that we start teaching Humane Education in grade school.  All of the lessons we teach in the classroom pertain to animal safety and treating animals, and people with respect." Said Annette Lagunas the Executive Director for the Humane Society of Yuma. Alice Byrne Elementary raised over $2000 in donations from friends and family of the students for the general care of the homeless pets at the Yuma shelter. The top earners received some pretty amazing prizes donated by our friends at BOSE including ear buds, Bluetooth speakers and some HSOY gear.
