Animal intake spiked in a one week comparison.
Last week the Humane Society of Yuma saw 108 sponsored adoptions by Quail; making it possible to have one entire kennel building empty. Although the organization sees this as a tremendous success, this week is different story. The overall animal intake of cats and dogs is up 41% compared to this same week in 2015. In 2015, 51 cats and 53 dogs (total of 104 animals) entered our facility, while currently at the open of today’s business we have seen 81 cats and 66 dogs (total of 147) enter our facility since Tuesday. We suspect by the close of business today, we will see that number grow.
The Humane Society of Yuma wants to reach out to the community and ask for donations. Times like these are difficult for the organization and put not only emotional stress on the staff and volunteers, but also put a financial stress on the organization. The pure volume of animals, more specifically cats, coming into our facility, highlights Yuma’s need to spay/neuter, microchip and/or license our pets. The Humane Society of Yuma has a holding period for these animals and is currently asking for Yuma’s help via donations.
