At any a person time the AAWL shelter will keep 140 cats and 190 puppies. They also have a foster parent community of about 90 family members who present treatment and shelter in their properties for puppies and kittens that are also youthful to be adopted, and those animals that are recovering from clinical methods or that require socialization right before adoption. All animals provided for adoption have been spayed or neutered micro-chipped and are existing on all vaccinations.

Track record

The Arizona Animal Welfare League (AAWL) was established in 1971 by a group of worried animal lovers. This team was led by Amanda Blake, most effective acknowledged as “Miss Kitty” on the television software, Gunsmoke. Commencing out on a small scale, involved volunteers adopted rescued cats and pet dogs from foster properties. In the late 1970s, the organization built its 1st shelter. By the mid-1990s, the AAWL & SPCA started rescuing animals scheduled to be euthanized by the County, and, right after rehabilitation, manufactured them accessible for adoption to the local community. Around the previous 50 years, the group has developed from adopting a handful of animals each and every yr to a total-services animal welfare corporation and leader in revolutionary conduct training, healthcare treatment, adoption, education, and neighborhood outreach plans. These days our shelter has an onsite veterinary clinic, kennels with a different cattery, a teaching centre, and a freestanding infirmary.

In 2005, the Arizona Modern society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) merged into AAWL. The new organization was renamed the Arizona Animal Welfare League & SPCA (AAWL & SPCA).

The AAWL tells us about the “Empty the Shelters” function, an energy to enhance adoption charges and aid as numerous pets find their for good homes.
