On a whim one day I decided I wanted to add another cat to our family and it was perfect timing because I had just saw a Facebook post that AZ Care was having an adoption event. My daughter and I fell in love with one little guy there named Joey! We both decided he would be the perfect addition. It was a little bittersweet as the lady who had fostered him absolutely adored him and she was sad to see him go but happy he was getting his forever home. It was such an easy process and you could tell they really cared about the welfare of the pets. Joey,now known as Dash, has become my daughters best buddy and is also attached to our other kitty. He even loves helping with homework! If it wasn’t for AZ Care we would not have had the privilege to have this handsome guy as part of our family. Thank you for all you do!!

We adopted our dog from AZ Care and can't thank them enough! He is very well behaved and trained; all of which came from their guidance prior to adoption. Would definitely recommend the organization.

I foster and adopted from AZ CARE and I have been super happy with the way they care for the animals. The rescue is 100% foster based and that ensures that all the animals are super well socialized and friendly.

Attached is a picture of our dog that we adopted from the rescue.

I spent a year of my life volunteering with this organization. I fostered, volunteered, donated and advocated alongside them...and it will, at the end of my life, be an experience that is one of the most amazing. AZ CARE is a volunteer-driven and donation-fueled non-profit that continues to put the need of the animals in their care first and foremost. They are focused and determined to make a difference in the lives of the animals they assist...and make a difference in the lives of the people that adopt, volunteer and foster for them.

These folks are the most selfless, loving, compassionate, dedicated, and determined group of animal lovers. They go way out of their way to help any animal in need, or person in need of their help. I am proud to be a foster fail momma, for these folks. I have my beautiful Ruger because of them! They need help to keep up the success of saving lives. Please donate, adopt, or foster!!! It feels good to help when you can!
