Adoption Special: Waived Fees for Longtimer Dogs and Cats!

Spring Into Love and Adopt a Longtimer Pet!

This Friday, April 5 to Sunday, April 7, AHS will waive adoption fees for select longtimer dogs and cat who have been with AHS for 30+ days. Pets will be available at all adoption locations in Phoenix, Mesa, and Scottsdale. Participating pets will have a flower on their kennel to indicate their longtimer status and waived adoption fee.

Because AHS cares for the Valley’s most vulnerable sick, injured and abused pets, it costs an average of $910 to care for one animal until he or she finds a forever home. Any additional contribution towards your new family member’s adoption is greatly appreciated and will help save the lives of more furry friends just like them!

All of the cats and dogs on our adoption floor have been spayed/neutered and are up to date on all current vaccinations. They are also sent home with a bag of Hills Science Diet food, a free follow-up veterinary exam with VCA Animal Hospitals and special adopter discounts on programs and services.

Things to know beforehand:

  • Be prepared to wait in line, possibly outside. Bring plenty of water for yourself, as well as water for your dog if you bring him or her along to meet potential new furmily members.
  • If you bring your dog for an introduction, vaccinations must be up-to-date. Dogs should have received most recent round of vaccinations at least five days prior to visiting.
  • Check pet requirements and location. If you have a specific pet in mind, please check their requirements regarding dog, child, or full family intros before coming to meet them. All adoptable pets can be found here and can be filtered by location. Please note that adoption locations may change early in the morning, and these pages are updated every hour.
  • Limit two meet n’ greets per household. We want to make sure that everyone has a chance to meet our adoptable pets! If interested in more, we kindly ask that you go to the end of the line.
  • Limit two adoptions per household.
  • We cannot hold pets. Adoptions are first come, first served.
  • For dogs: Must have or purchase appropriate leash and collar at time of adoption.
  • For cats: Must have or purchase appropriate carrier at time of adoption. $5 cat boxes are available for purchase.
