AAWL Education Center


**Please note The AAWL Education Center is located at 15 N. 40th Place, Phoenix, AZ 85034.**

This is where drop-off and pick-up will take place, NOT the Sonia Breslow Adoption Center main entrance on 40th Street. If you are using a navigation system, do not set “Arizona Animal Welfare League” as your destination – that will take you to the main shelter, not the Education Department. 15 North 40th Place is the address you want to set as your destination.
