    Since 1957, the Arizona Humane Society (AHS) has believed every pet deserves a good life. AHS is Arizona’s largest animal welfare and protection agency and the state’s designated responder for animals in distress during disasters. Guided by their Ethical No-Kill Philosophy™, AHS saves thousands of pets annually. Their services include a level I trauma hospital and intensive care units for homeless pets, comprehensive medical and foster programs, and behavior intervention programs. AHS’ community-based model comprises a Pet Resource Center, three affordable veterinary clinics, and community resource programs that keep pets in loving homes – right where they belong.

    Support from Grey Muzzle will help AHS prevent at least 40 senior dogs from being needlessly surrendered to their shelter. This grant will help strengthen the organization’s Bridge the Gap program, which supports lower-income pet owners struggling to keep their families intact. For example, pet parent Todd reached out to AHS when he couldn't afford surgery for Sasha, his 10-year-old hound, and faced the difficult decision of surrendering her to the shelter to receive necessary care. With this grant, AHS can alleviate financial barriers for pet parents like Todd, ensuring their cherished senior dogs remain in their loving homes.
