For more than 60 years, the Arizona Humane Society has been rescuing, healing, adopting, and advocating for sick, injured and abused animals.

In 2014, the organization set an ambitious goal to end animal suffering, homelessness and euthanasia in Maricopa County. Their goal was achieved; AHS saved an additional 60,000 animal lives.

The Arizona Humane Society not only offers adoption services for pets, but also operates a lifesaving trauma hospital, along with a rescue and cruelty investigation team. Their spay/neuter outreach and Pet Resource Center helps struggling pet owners, while their behavior rehabilitation and medical programs like Mutternity Suites, Bottle Baby Kitten ICU and Parvo Puppy ICU have redefined the community into a national model of what's possible when saving lives becomes the top priority.
