Benefits of Adopting A Shelter Pet

You’ll save two lives – the one you adopt and the one you made room for at that shelter/rescue.

Although intake is down thanks to the Fix.Adopt.Save. Initiative, thousands of pets still come into Alliance member shelters each month. There is no shortage of wonderful pets who deserve a second chance. Please consider a shelter pet.

You’ll save money and time They are an all-in-one bundle of joy – the value received when adopting a pet is profound.
Shelter pets have been spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and provided an examination for their health and behavior; adoption fees often include a free follow-up vet exam. Most pets are also microchipped.

You’ll have a large selection to choose from – shelters and rescues care for a large variety of pets from small, medium and large, to young and mature, to ‘mutts’ and purebreds; canines and felines. In Maricopa County, there are thousands of pets seeking new homes every day, please consider adopting a sheltered pet from our local shelters and rescue organizations.  

You’ll be supporting your community and its pets as opposed to purchasing pets from pet stores, breeders/back yard breeders. 

Let's work together to save more lives.
Please visit your local shelter or rescue when adopting.
