What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Animal Rescue/Emergency Animal Medical Technicians

The Arizona Humane Society's Emergency Animal Medical Technicians, or "pet paramedics," are the state's designated response team for animals in distress. They provide triage onsite and stabilize animals to be transported to our Second Chance Animal Trauma Hospital for treatment. EAMTs also provide technical rescue assistance to animals caught in life-threatening situations and play a key role in the investigation of suspected cases of animal cruelty and neglect, which frequently require their expert testimony.

Our EAMT program was the first of its kind in the country. Our specially trained professionals all completed our EAMT Academy, which is offered to the public several times a year for those interested in earning certification.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Arizona is in the midst of a pet overpopulation crisis. As the states' leading animal welfare organization, we feel that it is our responsibility to offer a solution - an affordable and accessible solution.

Our Marge Wright Low-Cost Spay/Neuter & Wellness Clinic and our Margaret McAllister Brock Low-Cost Spay/Neuter & Wellness Clinic both offer low-cost services that include spay/neuter procedures, vaccines, microchipping, heartworm prevention and more. For pet owners who cannot access these locations, our mobile clinic travels throughout the Valley to provide spay and neuter services. All of our medical facilities are accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association.

Adults

Through our many alternative placement programs, we are able to ensure that pets get second chances through means other than traditional adoption. We find foster homes for animals who are recovering from illness or injury until they are healthy and adoptable. We reunite pets with their very worried and distraught owners. We work with local animal welfare agencies to meet the specific needs of certain animals, including breed-specific rescues, on very rare occasions, wildlife rescue organizations. We also have some very unique programs designed to meet the needs of those in our community who are temporarily unable to care for their own pets. Those include:

 

Project Safehouse - foster care for up to 30 days for the pet(s) of an individual entering a domestic violence shelter

 

Project Active Duty - foster care for the pet(s) of military personnel being deployed for active duty for the duration of their deployent

 

Project Assist - foster care for the pet(s) of individuals who are hospitalized or in an emergency situation.

 

Disaster Relief - care for displaced animals after a fire, flood or auto accident for up to seven days to allow the owners to recover and get their affairs in order

Population(s) Served
Adults

Since 1957, the Arizona Humane Society has fostered the belief that every pet deserves a good life. We are committed to finding a forever home for every healthy, adoptable animal who comes through out doors. Our compassionate adoption counselors carefully screen potential adopters and conduct supervised family and pet introductions to ensure the family and the pet are a good long-term match.

 

We are dedicated to finding a match for every pet, regardless of their age or how long they have been at our shelter. We feature pets in our shelters, on our website, and through social media and traditional media outlets.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We envision a world in which all people regard companion animals as lifelong, valued family members; embrace their responsibility for the welfare of animals; and respect, value and protect the animals with whom we share this earth.

We rescue, heal, adopt and advocate for homeless, sick, injured and abused animals regardless of their breed, age or medical condition. Through collaborative partnerships, affordable community services, emergency rescue and our medical trauma center, we are committed to providing second chances and saving the lives of animals.

AHS is supported by 1,800 volunteers who donate nearly 18 hours of time to each pet we save. AHS plays an active role in animal welfare legislation, provides expert testimony in animal cruelty cases and engages out community to promote the protection of animals. AHS is a proud member of the Alliance for Companion Animals; a group of seven animal welfare organizations working collaboratively to serve more animals and combat pet homelessness in Maricopa County.

Throughout the years, a commitment to thinking differently about animal welfare has led to countless first-of-their-kind programs, services, education and communication techniques that have been emulated by organizations all over the world. This comprehensive approach will ensure our focus on our mission to rescue, shelter, heal, adopt and advocate for animals in need and provide compassionate care for the sick and injured animals that rely on us.
