PAAW Pet Resources | July 2022

Pima Alliance for Animal Welfare (PAAW), an initiative of the Community Foundation for Southern Arizona, is working to ensure all Pima County companion animals have a loving home and humane care.  Through its Human-Animal Bond Subcommittee, PAAW helps identify, establish, and share services that will help community members better care for their pets.

One of the ways the Human-Animal Bond Subcommittee supports this goal is by sharing a monthly list of free and reduced-cost resources compiled by No Kill Pima County.
