AKC Pet Disaster Relief Unit

AKC Disaster Relief TrailerIn 2015, AHS received a Pet Disaster Relief Unit from AKC Reunite through their Canine Support and Relief Fund.  This two-axel trailer containing materials to set up an emergency shelter for pets and service animals will be critical in our disaster relief efforts.

We are so grateful for the Scottsdale Dog Fanciers Association, Superstition Kennel Club and all of the local AKC clubs who selected AHS to receive this gift and worked to raise some of the funding. A group of 11 Arizona animal rescue groups worked to raise funds, which were then matched by AKC Reunite.
