- On Wednesday, October 4, 2017, the Arizona Lottery held their first-ever, puppy-drawn lottery called The Puppy Pick! The pick aired live via Facebook, and the video can be seen here.
- Some of AHS' cutest adoptable puppies were given time to play in a miniature yard for one minute each, and the last ball they had played with was the "puppy pick." Each ball held a number from 1-11 inside, and the person who chose the winning numbers would be offered a $1,000 prize.
- Nobody picked the winning numbers, so the Arizona Lottery chose to donate the prize money to AHS instead... plus, an additional $1,000!
- We are so thankful for this amazing partnership! Our friends at the Arizona Lottery recently gave AHS a grant that supports our Community Engagement department's Compassion in the Classroom programs. These programs provide age/grade appropriate lessons which include a wide range of STEM-focused hands-on learning with live animal interactions.
