The Arizona Humane Society (AHS) was founded in 1957 by a small group of compassionate volunteers. Today, it is one of the largest nonprofit shelters in the country. AHS is the safety net for the Valley’s most vulnerable pets – the sick, injured and abused homeless pets – many of whom are rescued by AHS’ FieldRescue Team and then treated in AHS’ Second Chance Animal Trauma Hospital. In fact, two out of every three of the nearly 18,000 pets that AHS takes in, are treated in the trauma hospital. AHS’ comprehensive medical, behavioral rehabilitation, surrender intervention, and spay/neuter initiatives saved an additional 100,000 lives over the last six years. Lifesaving programs such as the trauma hospital, Mutternity Suites, Kitten Nursery, Bottle Baby Kitten ICU and Parvo PuppyICU has saved the lives of pets routinely euthanized in shelters. In addition, AHS follows an Ethical No-Kill Philosophy and never euthanizes a pet for space or length of time in the shelter. AHS is also committed to keeping pets in homes with their loving owners through AHS’ Pet Resource Center and veterinary clinics, both of which allow AHS to connect pet owners with affordable medical, behavior and support services. Of course, AHS could not care for the Valley’s sick, injured and abused homeless pets without the support and collaboration of their partners, Foster Heroes, volunteers, donors and pet lovers across Maricopa County.
