High Country Humane opened its doors at the end of 2018 to provide high-caliber animal shelter services and help elevate animal welfare throughout northern Arizona. They provide comprehensive care for companion animals and ensure that no animal is euthanized for time, space, or a treatable condition. Their mission is to transform lives by providing exceptional animal care and adoption services, strengthening the bond between pets and people, and advocating for the well-being of all animals.
The goal of the Grey Muzzle grant is to reduce the number of senior dogs surrendered because their guardians cannot afford to treat their medical conditions. Funding will also support diagnostics and medical treatment for senior dogs in the care of High County Humane, improving their health and increasing their chances of adoption. The grant will benefit dogs like Bubba who had masses removed and is being treated for hypothyroidism and arthritis, all while recovering in a loving foster home and awaiting a forever family.
