Hi, my name is Prince Charming. I've bounced between shelters and homes looking for the perfect family for most of my life. I'm a good boy, but sometimes people have given up on me. But you know who has never given up on me? My friends at AAWL. They tell me every day that I'm a good boy, and give me big belly rubs (I have a big belly). They sit in my kennel and make sure I'm happy all the time with toys and walks.

Our clinic is expanding! We need to raise $30,000 by the end of August to purchase necessary medical equipment to help the thousands of animals we care for.
With a patchwork of balding fur and barely able to stand on his damaged legs, Jeep immediately struck a deep emotional chord with our medical team. We had driven six hours to respond to the needs of a small rescue with no medical resources and we knew we needed to act quickly.
My name is Harrison, and there are things in my life that might keep some dogs down. I’m deaf, my kidneys didn't develop quite right when I was born, and I’m a 1 year old puppy who has lived at the shelter for 3 months! But do I let that get me down? No! Do you know why? Because this world is amazing, full of amazing things. I don’t want to brag, but I’m kind of a rock star in doggie play groups, and they let me play with 20 other dogs a couple times a week.
“It’s a jeep thing.”
Sometimes the roads in life are smooth. Many times, though, they are rocky and treacherous, with dangerous turns and an inability to see past the trials in front of us. Unless you have a Jeep, then you can take on anything with a playful smile and push ahead.

The Arizona Animal Welfare League operates on a bare-bones budget, and yet, it takes in every stray pet that comes their way. Each year, the League rescues 4,000 animals, with 1,000 coming from the Rural Rescue Program.
Work begins bright and early for Michael Morefield and Melanie Thomas. It's barely 6:00 a.m., and they were loading much-needed supplies into the rescue truck before they hit the road.
As you are escaping this summer heat with day trips up north and long weekends to California or Colorado, you will most likely be bringing your furry four legged friend to share your adventures. Remember after your trip, make sure you aren’t bringing home those pesky, unwanted visitors; fleas and ticks. They can easily latch onto your pet, and besides making your skin crawl, they can make your animal very sick. Ehrlichea, tick fever, and Lyme disease are only a few of the diseases that can be transmitted to your animal from these tiny creatures and easily hospitalize them.
Hi, my name is Rose, and I need your help. I was born in a breeder’s backyard, sold to have puppies. When I was 7 months old, I had trouble walking, and they took me to a vet. He said my legs didn’t form right and I needed a surgery on both of my legs. The breeder was going to make me “go away”, but I didn’t want to “go away”. I’m not even a year old, I have a lot of life to live.
