Our Pet List

Our animal rescue organization is thriving and we couldn't be happier or more grateful! We are always looking for volunteers to be foster parents, volunteers to work in our Boutique, and volunteers to work at our Cat Adoption Center. Please contact Cheryl Brazell 928-200-3611 or 928-425-2220, if you love animals and want to help us save lives! Our new Cat Adoption Center is located downtown, Globe, across the street from "The Drift In" and the old, "Blue Mule Gallery" - open Tues-Sat, 11am-3pm. Phoene 928-812-4097 for more information on cats. ALSO, PLEASE VISIT US ON FACEBOOK: High Desert Humane Society and Rescue


We are currently working with Gila County Rabies Control and the Board of Supervisors to sign a new lease agreement for the building we own that they are using. The rent has been pitifully low and yet they still want us to help them make repairs to the building. We have asked for more rent in order to begin Engineering and plans for a new facility that could benefit the County and the City of Globe and surrounding areas with a partnership of our organizations. We would appreciate your input and assistance to accomplish this large task.


Prepare your pets that spend time outdoors a place that is comfortable, shady and dry. If you feed your pet outdoors, put the food in a bowl that can be placed in a larger bowl that has water in it to keep the ants and roaches out of the food. This creates sort of a moat effect. Change the water daily.

Please don't chain your dog. If you can't afford a fence, maybe you shouldn't have a dog. If you won't give your dog up, use an overhead tether that gives him room to run and will not get hung up on anything where he can't get to water, food or shelter. Remember it is just as important to provide fresh water in the winter as in the summer.

The High Desert Humane Society is working hard to find homes for homeless pets. Please do not add to the over population of unwanted pets. Please spay and neuter your pets. A little sacrifice in dollar bills now will help prevent the sacrifice of an unwanted pets life later. Please contact your local Humane Society for more information on low cost clinics if you absolutely can't save enough money to have your pet altered. You can call some of these numbers to get information for low cost clinics or visit these web sites: 480-949-7729 / www.catnipandtuck.org or 602-216-6442 / www.azhumane.org

Who We Are

The High Desert Humane Society is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit corporation comprised of a group of non-paid volunteers who give of their time, effort and money to promote spay & neuter and responsible pet care and ownership. Our funds come from community donations and local fund raisers. We do not receive government funds or subsidies. We are in need of volunteers from the community to raise funds and be there lending a hand at fund raisers and the everyday operations. Our goal is to build a no-kill shelter to house the many dogs and cats that need homes in our area. Please help us!

Adopting a friend

All dogs and cats are spayed/neutered and vaccinated prior to adoption. If you are adopting a dog, your fee also includes a rabies shot, provided it is at least 3 months old. The new owner must qualify as a responsible home before adoption and be at least 19 years old (21 yrs old to adopt a pit bull mix). The Canines MUST have a fenced yard with indoor access. The Felines MUST be kept indoors and may have access to the outdoors in a protected enclosure. We are totally against de-clawing any pet. You sign an agreement for adoption that is a binding contract. Please understand that although we may not spend the full adoption fee on every animal, we spend a great deal more than that on the medical needs, spay/neuter and boarding for some of the animals. If the animal you adopt didn't require extra care, then you are giving a gift to the other animals that needed special attention.

To adopt one of our animals, e-mail or call the information number in the pets ad. An application can be filled out over the phone, sent by e-mail, fax or by post. Once we receive the completed application we will call you to talk about the animals you may be interested in. If you would like to meet one of them, we can take them to your home or a place convenient for you and the foster family. Once you are approved we have you sign an Adoption Agreement and you have a new best friend!

The High Desert Humane Society does not operate out of one facility. All of our animals stay at volunteer foster homes in the Globe-Miami area until adopted. Please contact us if you are interested in becoming a foster home and experience how good it feels to save a life!
