AAWL helping Arizona's rural animal rescues

Fox10 Phoenix 

By Anita Roman

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.img_0318.jpg

Sam: It's cool to be a smart girl

Sam: It’s Cool to Be a Smart Girl

Sam came to the AAWL 3 years ago a smart, motivated German Shepherd looking for a new family. Rescued from the euthanasia list at the county shelter, we knew with the proper home she would flourish. She was the brand standard for German Shepherds: Perfect gait, astonishing coat, her personality and behavior fit the AKC definition exactly. A family fell for Sam, and took her home to begin her new life.sam_face_full_1.jpg

A Homeless Boy and His Dog

We received a heartbreaking call recently about a young boy who had been abandoned by his mother and was entering the foster care system. Adding to this sad situation, the boy had a beloved dog that he had raised from a puppy. He was going to have to give up his dog because he was not allowed to take it with him to the foster home.

Honey - Terrified at a Truck stop to pampered in a home

After living for a year in a field next to a truck stop and spending days searching for food and water, Honey just wanted a home. One day, she made a friend in a kind hearted woman named Bessie, who spent a month gaining Honey’s trust. Bessie knew she couldn’t keep Honey, but she knew of the Arizona Animal Welfare League and she knew Honey deserved a better life than scraping by in a dirt lot. Bessie convinced Honey to go for a car ride, and brought her to us, ready to start her new life. Something was wrong with Honey, though; she had become lethargic and weak.
