Pet Resource Specials for December 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.
