To ensure the safety of our staff and community, the Arizona Animal Welfare League will be instituting an appointment-based adoption program on select days.

We have a lot of amazing animals looking for homes, follow the simple process below to meet them.

1. View our available Dogs and Cats looking for their wonderful new homes!

Please Note: If the dog you are choosing to meet is listed as a "Must Meet" on their website profile and you have a dog(s) in the home, you must bring them to the shelter for a meet and greet. Although we recommend bringing your current dogs to the shelter to meet any potential new siblings to make sure they are a good fit. If your dog hasn't lived with cats before and you're wanting to adopt one, we require that you bring your dog to your appointment to meet the cat before adoption.


2. Please select which location you would like to make an adoption appointment at below.


Main Campus Adoption Center

Chandler Mall Adoption Center


We apologize if all appointments within your availability are taken, but we won't be able to take walk-in’s. Please check back later for new appointments. 


  • Please arrive on time for your appointment! We are trying to safely work with as many potential adopters as possible and being late or no-showing for an appointment prevents an animal from meeting their furever family.
  • Do not sign up for a Cat Meet & Greet if you want to meet dogs and visa versa. We will not be able to accommodate those requests. 
  • You must make an appointment at the proper location for the animal you would like to see. Chandler Adoption appointments will not be honored at the Main shelter and vice versa.
