Focus on Prevention
The Arizona Pet Project keeps pets with the people who love and need them most by connecting our vulnerable community members and families in crisis with services and resources to prevent the unnecessary surrender of their beloved companions. The Arizona Pet project is here to support families while also reducing the number of dogs and cats in our Valley shelters. Animals bring comfort, joy, healing, and health, and we believe those benefits should be available to all.
In 2019, The Arizona Pet Project supported more than 4,000 pets and families.
2,359 pets received free spay and neuter surgeries through our community clinic program. This program ensures life-saving services are reaching pet owners in communities with the highest need. By directly funding and managing mobile clinics, we remove barriers low-income families face in accessing spay and neuter and vaccines while reducing the number of homeless pets.
Through our Shelter Intervention program, The Arizona Pet Project saves even more dogs and cats thanks to your help. Our social workers keep pets with the people who love and need them most by connecting vulnerable community members and families in crisis with services and resources that prevent unnecessary surrender. 1,689 pets were kept with their loving families and out of the shelter last year.
