The Arizona Animal Welfare League (AAWL) is the largest and oldest no-kill shelter in Arizona. AAWL rescues, rehabilitates and re-homes more than 4,000 dogs and cats each year that are abandoned or that have been surrendered by their owners. At any one time, our shelter will hold 140 cats and 190 dogs.
All pets offered for adoption have been spayed or neutered; micro-chipped and are current on all vaccinations. Any medical treatments needed, including surgeries, are provided by our medical team and all animals are evaluated by our behavior department.
In addition to the shelter, AAWL has an extensive education department which provides kids camps, dog training, community outreach and much more. We also have a low-cost vet clinic which is open to the public by appointment only.
