What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The Humane Society of Wickenburg (HSW) is seeking financial support for programs in working to address the animal welfare issues in Wickenburg and surrounding rural areas. There is an increasing number of homeless and unwanted animals in the growing community in need of a forever home. HSW provides shelter, food, and medical needs for all animals taken into their care until they are adopted. HSW takes pet overpopulation control measures by sterilizing all animals cared for at the shelter and by offering low cost public spay and neuter clinics. There is also a growing need for pet food for animals belonging to poor and/or elderly citizens in the community.

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

The Humane Society of Wickenburg's (HSW) goal is to provide for the needs of homeless and orphaned pets in the community and surrounding rural areas and place them in forever homes.

We have increased our marketing and social media to share information on pets here in the shelter looking for their furever home.

The Humane Society of Wickenburg operates a brick and mortar animal shelter situated in Wickenburg, Arizona that houses dogs and cats.

The Humane Society of Wickenburg (HSW) expects to continue to serve more animals in the community by an increase in animal intakes and likewise, facilitate an increase in adoptions.

The Humane Society of Wickenburg (HSW) has experienced a 15 percent increase in animal intakes and will continue to serve the animals of the community. As the community animal population grows, it is likely more shelter space will be needed in the coming years.
