If you would like to get involved and be of service to an animal in need please consider fostering. Fostering is so rewarding knowing you are helping a dog have a safe place to rest their head. We always need fosters for a short term or long term. Please fill out an application if you are willing to open your heart and home to help.
Additionally please review our foster manual to get a better idea of what fostering with ANM is like.
Before surrendering please try everything you can to help. Shelters are full, and rescues are struggling to find fosters and adopters. Let's work together to keep dogs out of the shelter.
Use caution when considering unknown individuals or families as your pet's new owners. Hold the initial meeting in a public place and ask questions to screen potential adopters. Share your expectations for your pet's new home and require an adoption fee to deter dishonest individuals. When you find a family that meets your pet's needs, ask them for identification and contact information to follow up on how your pet is doing it their new home.
If you cannot keep your pet as you are losing your home or are financially not able to provide, please reach out to Lost Our Home Pet Foundation or the Arizona Humane Society Alternative Placement. If you need help with food for your pet please reach out to Chuck Waggin Pet Food Pantry or Empty Bowl Pet Food Pantry.
If you need additional help with your pet, Arizona has amazing local businesses, charities, and resources who can assist you.
One of the first things you should do as a responsible pet owner is to ensure your pet is spayed or neutered. This helps save lives. The local shelters are full of unwanted animals being put down daily and we don't want or need any more. Please do your part and have your animal spayed or neutered ar your local veterinarian or low cost locations in the Phoenix area listed below:
