The Arizona Humane Society unveiled a new cat isolation area at its Nina Mason Pulliam Campus for Compassion. The isolation area is the second of its kind for the Arizona Humane Society after the first one was expanded in 2010. The new space has been open roughly six weeks and has had approximately 40 temporary residents, some of whom are now in foster care and others who have recovered and are now in their forever homes. The space requires those who enter to gown and glove up while also wearing removable show covers. Daily evaluations of these animals include how they are responding to the medications, attitude, appetite and hydration. In addition, the new space gives AHS the ability to get to know the cats even better and provide that information to adopters.

The objectives of the isolation area are three-fold: getting sick cats healthy again, increasing the number of cats adopted out and offering an enrichment program for the cats. Enrichment includes various interactions as well as busy boxes, Happy Habitat tents, toys, Feliway spray to decrease stress and relaxation through calming cat music.
