Join Us in Celebrating a New Pet Adoption Center & Boutique

The Arizona Humane Society (AHS) has a fashionable new way to find animals a loving home, thanks to the Westcor Corporation. Petique, a new adoption center and pet boutique at the Biltmore Fashion Park, utilizes an empty retail space provided rent-free by Westcor and a community celebration is being planned for this Saturday, March 20, from Noon – 2:00 p.m. at the Biltmore Fashion Park.  A book signing by animal artist Ron Burns is planned along with the opportunity to meet special guest Asher, a young pit bull mix who lost his leg and was given a second chance at life, thanks to the AHS and its Second Chance Animal Hospital™.

Asher’s heartwarming story is the perfect example of the important work that AHS is doing; proceeds will go to support their Second Chance Animal Hospital, which saved Asher and found him a loving new home.  Burns will also be there to unveil his painting of Asher and judge an animal art contest for youth from Starshine Academy.  This event will have great visuals with animals, kids and artwork and AHS’ Emergency Animal Medical Technicians™ will be on hand to greet visitors.


  1. Hello Joe,
    I’m Cat,my husband and I have fostered and adopted our pets. We love them a lot!
    One of our dogs is a Miniture Poodle, his name is Barkley. Barkley is very timid around people he doesn’t know. He spent his first year and a half in a cage. He wasn’t brought out of the cage except for breeding. His vocals were cut thanks to his last owner whom was running a puppy mill in a residential area. They didn’t want the neighbors to know they had a lot of dogs. One of the workers told the rescue that when the cages were sprayed down with a hose the dogs were still in the cage. I had tears in my eyes while being told about this abuse. It has taken Barkley and I, two months to build a strong bond. He is my shadow following me every where. He sleeps on me every night.
    While we were fostering, we started racking our brains of how to raise funds to help other animals. I thought maybe I could sell my jewelry I have designed and then I could donate a percentage to animal rescues. So about three months ago I started making more jewelry and then opened my shop through
    It has been frustrating that I haven’t yet sold one piece on etsy. I had sold some through friends and to a couple of ladies from our Church. I donated a small amount to Halo Rescue and I want so badly to be able to give more in the near future.
    After reading about this Petique and adoptions through AHS opening. I wanted to introduce myself to you.
    Thank you for taking the time to read this message. And, I want to take this moment to tell you how I admire you for what you have done. God Bless.
    Catherine M Hoyt
