Phoenix, Arizona, April 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Phoenix Animal Shelter (PAS) is currently home to more than 3,000 animals in emergency shelter conditions.
The shelter has been overwhelmed by calls for assistance from people who are struggling with their pets, a need which PAS has been unable to meet.
The animals who have been adopted are now in the care of PAS volunteers who are now on-site helping them to adjust to their new home.
PAS is currently working to find a new home for some of the animals who were adopted.
Pas has received several donations of food, water and blankets, but more needs to be done to accommodate all of the animal needs of the shelter.
“We have received donations from the community as well as private donations,” said PAS Director of Community Affairs Jennifer Sperling.
“These funds are in the form of food and supplies, but also shelter blankets, blankets, toys and clothing.”
PAS and its volunteers are on-call to assist PAS clients with their daily needs.
Pasher, the shelter’s new resident, is the first adopted Phoenix animal.
She arrived with PAS in the fall of 2017 and is now home with her new family.
“She is a sweetheart, and we have not been able to take her home because of her injuries,” Sperlings said.
“Pasher is a very playful animal, which makes her extremely vulnerable.
She has a hard time controlling her body and can get into a lot of trouble.
We need to find her a new, stable home.”
The PAS adoption fee is $75 per pet.
“With the amount of donations that we have received, we have decided to place Pasher in a new foster home where she can continue to get better,” Spermling said.
The new foster mother is hoping to reunite with her adopted pup soon, and she has a big future ahead of her.
Paws are not all roses and roses are not always roses, but with the help of the community, PAS can be a source of comfort and hope to people who have lost their pets in crisis.
“Our goal is to provide a safe environment for the animals that are at PAS, and also to be a place for them to have a safe place to come home,” Spleland said.
Please contact the PAS community at (602) 784-0455 if you would like to donate to PAS.
