AHS and BISSELL Announce $0 Adoption Fees for All Pets

Written by: Arizona Humane Society
Special Runs Through May 15th to Help Critical Capacity Needs, Thanks To BISSELL Pet Foundation

The Arizona Humane Society (AHS) continues to face critical capacity issues in several areas of the shelter as it cares for more than 1,100 sick, injured and abused pets within its shelter and Foster Hero homes, with upwards of 75+ homeless pets rescued by AHS each day. To create lifesaving kennel space in its trauma hospital and ICUs, AHS is hosting an adoption special where ALL AHS adoptable pets have $0 adoption fees through May 15, 2023, courtesy of BISSELL Pet Foundation!

Adoption Special Details:

*     All Pets!
*     Both AHS South Mountain & PetSmart Scottsdale (Miller/Camelback) adoption locations!
*     View AHS’ adoptable pets at, the site updates hourly!

AHS currently has more than 170 pets available for adoption, with dozens more behind-the-scenes waiting for an adoption kennel to open up and even more that become available each day. Pets like Phyllis and Angela, pictured above, three-year-old Poodles who were rescued by AHS Cruelty Investigators with six other dogs in March of this year after they were found abandoned with no food or water. Treated in the shelter’s trauma hospital, these sweet girls are hoping this special will help them find their forever homes!

Adopting from the Arizona Humane Society helps save not just the life of that pet but also allows space for even more, sick, injured and abused pets to be cared for. Not only are all pets spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped, but adopters also receive a free VCA pet exam and discounts in AHS’ Petique Store and more.
