We have saved 115,000 more pets in the last seven years.

After more than 60 years as Arizona’s leading animal welfare organization, saving sick and injured pets was routine for the Arizona Humane Society. We had a successful rhythm. A groove. Things were good.

But in 2014, we decided our good routine simply wasn’t good enough. We set an ambitious goal to end animal suffering, homelessness and needless euthanasia in Maricopa County. To do more. Help more. Save more.

And it worked. 115,000 times.

That’s right – 115,000 additional lives were saved. 115K more pets are safe in loving homes today thanks to lifesaving programs like our trauma hospital for the Valley’s most vulnerable animals and our rescue and cruelty investigation team. Our spay/neuter outreach and Pet Resource Center help struggling pet owners, while behavior rehabilitation and new medical programs like Mutternity Suites, Bottle Baby Kitten ICU and Parvo Puppy ICU have redefined our community into a national model of what’s possible when saving lives becomes the top priority.


The sum of lives saved is astounding. The individual stories of these survivors are even more extraordinary.
