Top Five Reasons You Should Donate Your Vehicle to AHS!

Written by: Arizona Humane Society
Donate your car or vehicle to the Arizona Humane Society’s Wheels for Wags program. We sell directly to the public, so you get more bang for your buck with a tax write-off.

Here’s why donating beats a trade-in every time.

You’ll be helping to save the lives of our community’s most vulnerable pets. Our pets get 100% of the proceeds when you donate your vehicle, and we take care of everything from beginning to end. So, by cutting out the middleman, we can give more money to the animals. This means more support for medical treatment, rescue services, food, and shelter for our pets until they find their furever homes.

You get a tax write-off. Not only will your donation save lives, but as a 501(c)(3) organization, AHS is recognized as a charitable non-profit by the United States IRS. That means, not only do you have the chance to donate to a paw-mazing cause, you get a tax write-off, too! We maximize your car’s value. Due to the cost of repairs and selling practices, our vehicles generate up to 300% more net revenue on average than they would at an auction house. Which is all to say, you get a larger tax write-off come April 15th.

Wheels for Wags is an award-winning program. Our newly revamped Wheels for Wags Vehicle Sales Program won the coveted Bob & Diane Hoover Annual Innovation Award from the Association of Animal Welfare Advancement in 2021. We are the first non-profit organization in Arizona that is a licensed and insured used car dealership. Unlike typical car donation programs, we sell directly to the public, making your donation stress-free. Now, that’s something to bark about.

We pick it up and do the work. You get the credit. That’s right. No muss, no fuss. We have a dedicated transport team ready to pick up your vehicle, and we get the most value out of your car, camper, boat, or other vehicle by making repairs before it goes to sale. Then, AHS finds a private buyer and sends you the tax receipt. It’s the purrrfect plan.

It’s for more than just cars. No kitten! At AHS, we accept any unwanted vehicle with inspection, from cars and trucks to camper trailers, boats, and ATVs. We’ve got you covered.
