Since 1971, AAWL has offered programs and services that support animals and people in Maricopa County, serving an impoverished area of Phoenix, where nearly 65% of the residents live at or below the poverty level. Whether providing shelter and adoption services for homeless animals, enriching young minds with humane education, or providing behavioral classes to enhance the human-animal bond, AAWL meets the needs of animals and those who love them.
Arizona Animal Welfare League (AAWL) is committed to increasing the annual intake of senior dogs to help alleviate strain on our partner shelters and allow these dogs to live in loving homes. Thanks to the Grey Muzzle grant, AAWL will waive the adoption fee for senior dogs, provide 60+ days of medication, and offer a $250 credit at the community veterinary clinic to treat chronic medical conditions. Removing barriers to senior dog adoption will encourage adopters to open their hearts and homes to older dogs. The grant will help 22 senior dogs find loving homes.
