Give a Wag! Gives to Phoenix Shelters

The oldest and largest no-kill shelter in Arizona, the Arizona Animal Welfare League, has been a cornerstone in the animal community since its founding by television personality, Amanda Blake, in the 1970s.  They provide a number of services to the community including training classes, low cost veterinary services, and conservation courses for local school age children.  And for those with children interested in a veterinary career, AAWL offers an onsite junior training program.  With a robust network of foster families and volunteers, AAWL works to find forever homes for thousands of dogs and cats each year.

Having saved 60,000 pets since its founding in 1994, Helping Animals Live On Rescue (HALO) is a no-kill shelter with adoption locations spanning from Phoenix to Scottsdale.  HALO Rescue serves not only as a local advocate for abandoned animals, but takes political stances on national issues like dog fighting and breed targeting legislation.  HALO’s transparency about their donations make their community fundraising events and adoptee reunions all the better to attend.

If you’re a fan of the small pooches, have we got a place for you.  The Arizona Small Dog Rescue is a no-kill shelter focused on finding homes for dogs under 50 pounds, particularly those surrendered willfully.  As a non-profit organization, Arizona Small Dog Rescue hosts several community events to raise funds.
