Our life-saving adoption efforts are made possible thanks to our collaborative partnerships with a network of open-intake urban and rural shelters across az. We transport animals from these high-needs, under-served communities to our main shelter in phoenix where they are given complete medical and behavior evaluations. During their time at aawl, animals are well cared for, with top-of-the-line veterinary care and food, daily walks, and exercise, play time, socialization and special behavior modifications to help them become more adoptable.

Aawl's community outreach and education efforts focus on advancing three strategic goals: finding adoptable animals homes, providing affordable, accessible vet care to underserved communities and keeping pet families together. We do that through a variety of strategies including volunteer and foster engagement, shelter diversion, community education and The delivery of veterinary services to pets in underserved communities. We partner with local schools and community centers to share pet resources and information and recruit and train pet parents who live and work in The communities we serve to be our aawl ambassadors and broaden our impact.
