Focus on Prevention
The Arizona Pet Project’s mission is to support and improve the physical, social and emotional health of the entire bonded family, both human and pet, with a concentration on assisting vulnerable residents including those struggling with homelessness, housing and food insecurity, domestic violence, physical and mental disabilities, health crises, addiction, and systemic poverty.
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.
