We’ve made temporary changes to safeguard our community and staff and to continue to help the Valley’s most vulnerable pets who depend on us.
To ensure safety, all visitors entering AHS property, including buildings and parking lots, are required to wear masks at all times without exception. AHS will offer a disposable mask, free of charge, to visitors without one at our Sunnyslope Campus and Nina Mason Pulliam Campus for Compassion. Visitors entering an AHS building will be subject to a temperature screening.

Pets and COVID-19: At this time, and according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization, there is no evidence that companion animals including pets can spread COVID-19 and “there is no justification in taking measures against companion animals which may compromise their welfare.” Please consult those websites for the latest information. We are actively monitoring COVID-19 recommendations from the CDC, AVMA, state, and local organizations. Please continue to check back frequently for updates.
