Review for Arizona Animal Welfare League, Inc., Phoenix, AZ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Exceptional, outstanding, caring, wonderful, much needed, priceless, hardworking, committed and irreplaceable are just a few words to describe the Arizona Animal Welfare Leage & SPCA, Arizona's Oldest & Largest No-Kill Shelter. The AAWL's entire staff, board of directors & volunteers go above and beyond to assist, care for, help and nurture dogs & cats. On a daily basis, 365 days a year, their goal is to save the lives of dogs & cats. This is no simple endeavor, yet they do it with extreme care, excellent organization, proactive communication, tenacity, kindness, integrity, smiles & joy. The AAWL excels at saving the lives of animals who would otherwise be euthanized, assisting with care & control of over population of animals by spaying & neutering all animals that come through the shelter/are up for adoption, education programs for the community & their genuine concern and love of animals which is exemplified each day through great care of the animals which includes feeding, observations, cleaning, assessment of the animals during intake, medication/health/medical treatment if needed, training, fostering programs, fundraising, events and lots of tender loving care. What the AAWL has been able to achieve & hopes to achieve in the future is awe inspiring & a true example of an outstanding non-profit. Sincerely, Melissa A.

It has been great. I am so impressed with AAWL. It has had a positive effect on me as I look forward to going to AAWL & volunteering there. I have had the opportunity to meet & talk with fabu staff, i.e. Emily, Amber, Dianne, Kay & other staff members which has been great. Also, I feel I am making a difference & that volunteering at AAWL has meaning. Plus I am learning so much about all the organization it takes in running this truly impressive non-profit no-kill animal shelter.
