Wags and Purrs to PetSmart Charities for Helping Save More Pets!

AHS received a generous grant from PetSmart Charities, the leading funder of animal welfare in North America, to help support pet adoptions in the PetSmart Charities Everyday Adoption Center at the Scottsdale PetSmart on Miller & Camelback.  In 2018, it is predicted that almost 900 additional pets will be adopted at this location alone. The generous grant will help AHS off-set transportation and operation costs. The majority of funds will be put towards a new vehicle that will help facilitate the transport of pets to the new adoption location. In addition to much-needed help with transportation, the grant will also support the daily operations at the adoption center and will enable AHS to maintain a cost-effective and highly-successful adoption center.
