Notable Moments: The event celebrated the new, state-of-the-art Papago Park Campus which broke ground on November 4 and debuted the new logo for the Arizona Humane Society. AHS announced that they had saved more 115,000 lives in the last seven years. Belle, a young puppy who was near death from Parvo virus, was highlighted in the program. Sadly, most shelters have to euthanize dogs with the virus, but AHS can often successfully treat this disease in their Parvo Puppy ICU.  Belle is now happy and healthy, and walked the runway with her adoptive family.
