Gold Canyon Arizona is a quaint little village located approximately 38 miles to the east of Phoenix. Most of the town is just to the west and southwest of the Mountain Range known as the Superstitions. There are a variety of desert foliage and Cacti growing throughout the landscape. The area is abundant with desert creatures and wildlife. It is not uncommon to observe Coyotes, Javalina, Quail, Bobcats, Turkey Vultures, Peregrine Falcons, Lizards and Rattle Snakes roaming the area, especially at dusk.
On April 5, 2011, Tom McDonald proprietor of Smiling Dog Landscape Co. in Gold Canyon, AZ. called Curt Fonger to advise that one of his workers on his way to work had just witnessed a Bobcat being chased by a Mountain Lion. The incident took place on Cloudview Rd. not very far from the trail head for the Hieroglyphic Trail. The mountain lion is said to have been very large. Subsequently, the bobcat jumped onto a nearby 45' high Saguaro and ascended to the top to take safe refuge from the Lion. The Bobcat wasn't injured by the Lion nor the needles of the Saguaro. Later in the day - he scurried a few feet down from his perch on top of the cactus. Then poised momentarily, he leaped some 35 feet onto the Desert floor and scampered back up a nearby wash toward the Superstition Mountains. This event was presented on National News media through Fox News. See the You Tube video link above.

So, for every T Shirt sold, $4.00 will be donated to the Center. On May 20th the first check, $160.00, from 40 T Shirt sales in 3 hours time, was presented to the Rescue center. On May 31, 2011, Cheryl and Ray Husslein of Gold Canyon Embroidery and Boutique presented a second check, $700 to Chief Jerry Monahan to be donated to the AJ Animal Shelter. This represents 175 additional T Shirts sales in just 10 days. See photographs of the events below. T Shirt sales have been brisk with everyone so happy to be involved in a project like this that helps the animals, and everyone also loves the T Shirt!
