TUBA CITY, Ariz. — Students in Leslie Hosteen’s second grade class, inspired by the non-fiction book Change Maker, a story about kids who are making a difference in the world, decided to become change makers themselves.

Thank you, students and teacher Mr. Hosteen, for trying to create positive change and encourage responsible pet ownership and care!
An Opportunity to Win Custom Art with Your Tuba City Humane Society Benefit Raffle Ticket!
The winning ticket holder will receive a custom 8 X 10″ oil painting, of their own pet, created by Lee Mitchelson. Good photos of your pet will be required. Lee is a member of Oil Painters of America, has illustrated three hardcover books, and is represented by Goldenstein Art in Sedona. Her art is in collections in eleven countries.
It has been said that Lee’s animal art “shimmers with life,” and if so, it is because her whole life has been dedicated to her love and understanding of animals and her desire to protect them from harm.
Lee says, “Please support Tuba City Humane Society (TCHS) in their efforts to bring animals to safety from desperate situations, and to give them kindness, veterinary attention, and both foster and permanent homes. Your purchase of raffle tickets for yourselves and as gifts for other animal lovers helps support TCHS in relieving the suffering of animals.”
We will continue to run this lower cost spay/neuter promotion in Tuba City, until grant funds run out.
We want to express big thanks to Flagstaff-Sedona Dog Magazine and to author Jacqueline Vaughn, for publishing an article on our work in the February/March 2017 issue. We very much appreciate your efforts to support our work and help spread the word on what we are doing. Thank you!
Thank you to Arizona Pet Friendly License Plate and to the Tuba City Community Fund for awarding grant funds to us, so that we can offer a lower cost spay/neuter program for dogs and cats in Tuba City. Our veterinary service provider, Dr. Carol Holgate, of Desert View Veterinary Clinic, will provide the surgeries. Please contact her directly to schedule an appointment for spay/neuter surgery. Low-cost spay/neuter services are one of the primary tools to reduce animal overpopulation and combat pet homelessness. Please help us spread the word!
