Through formal and comprehensive adoption policies, educational humane programs and events designed to increase awareness, compassion and responsible pet ownership, the Humane Society's mission is to place every adoptable animal in a permanent, well-educated home.

Feral Cat Season is Here - Now that cooler weather is here HSW has resumed its TNR (trap-neuter-return) for feral (wild) and unowned cats in our community. If you know of, or are feeding, one of these cats please contact the shelter. This week we have already trapped two cats, with an appointment for one more tomorrow. Since 2010, 430 cats have been TNR'd. This program equals a lot less reproducing cats, healthier cats, less cat yowling and less cat marking. "It is a good thing."
If you would like to donate to this program, please send your donation to HSW, 4000 Industrial Road, Wickenburg, AZ 85390 and make a notation that you would like your money to be used for the Feral Cat Program or TNR.
Give a Senior Cat or Dog a Second Chance
Take a few minutes to view a wonderful video filmed at our shelter a few years ago by Barbara and David Gross. It stars many former and current volunteers of HSW. As you watch the video please remember that we are a "no-kill" shelter. The age of a pet is but a number, - just as it is for humans. Don't let an animal's "older" age deter you from opening your heart to your new best friend.
