Arizona Humane Society
With the team still in WFH mode, the PlanetOne From the Heart initiative took yet another creative turn this quarter and set their sights on helping our furry friends residing at the Arizona Humane Society by participating in their “Wags N’ Purrs” virtual volunteer program. A Friday afternoon Zoom “Yappy Hour” brought the team together for a virtual tour of the shelter and lessons on how to make puppy and kitten toys and treats which were then donated to the shelter.
With craft supplies provided by PlanetOne, everyone’s crafting and braiding skills were put to the test and the end result was a fun variety of enrichment toys for the benefit of the pets waiting for their forever homes. Many furry PlanetOne team family members got in on the action with their humans and a few of the milk bone peanut butter sandwiches may or may not have made it to their final destination!
The Arizona Humane Society is an incredible success story. In the last six years, they’ve dramatically accelerated efforts to save more animals. Their life-saving programs expanded and became more innovative in their animal intake. They introduced new services to protect, treat and heal pets and reimagined the very notion of animal welfare. They also expanded work in the community, became vocal supporters for animals on television and in the news and even fought for pets in the courtroom, helping pass legislation that protects how animals can be treated in homes, in yards and in overheating cars. The result is the most rapid transformation ever achieved by an animal welfare agency: a dramatic 84 percent decrease in euthanasia and 57 percent reduction in intake.
Thanks to the PlanetOne From the Heart team for donating your time and energy to this important cause!
