Arizona Humane Society Receives Grant From PetSmart Charities® to Help More Homeless Pets Find Homes In The Valley

Written by: Arizona Humane Society
Hundreds of homeless pets on their journey to find a furever home will benefit from a generous grant provided by PetSmart Charities®.

This month, AHS received a $75,000 grant from PetSmart Charities® to help prepare more than 770 homeless pets for adoption on their journey to finding their furever home. That’s pawsitively exhilarating!

Each year, we care for more than 15,000 sick, injured, and abused pets like Peekaboo (pictured), who have nowhere else to turn. Peekaboo is a three-month-old Chihuahua that was rescued after being found as an injured stray and was treated in our trauma hospital for wounds. She recently found her furever home at AHS’ PetSmart Scottsdale adoption location and was celebrated as the very first Scottsdale PetSmart adoption of the New Year!

PeekabooFamilyAs a nonprofit organization that relies on donations, PetSmart Charities®’ generous grant will allow AHS to ensure hundreds of pets are prepared for adoption by providing them with spay/neuter surgeries, updated vaccinations, and microchips.

“We are so thankful for the generous support of PetSmart Charities®’ to allow us to be able to help even more homeless pets in our community get a second chance at a great life,” said Jane Clark, AHS Director of Pet Placement. “Not only will hundreds of pets be helped through this incredible gift, but it also allows us to continue to fight pet overpopulation and keep more pets safe in our community.”

“Welcoming a pet into your heart and home is a big decision,” said Heidi Fulcher, Adoption Grants Manager at PetSmart Charities®. “We want to make certain adoptable animals receive the preventative care they need before making this important transition. It’s our pleasure to continue to support our long-time partners at the Arizona Humane Society as they make the process as seamless as possible.”

From Peekaboo and all of us at AHS, thank you, PetSmart Charities®, for your generosity, kindness, and compassion and for making a difference in the lives of pets across the valley. We appreciate your dedication to ensuring the lives and happiness of our furry friends.
