Today Cindie is joined by Michael Morefield of the Arizona Animal Welfare League & SPCA. Founded in 1971, AAWL strives to be the community's leading source for pet adoptions, affordable veterinary services, volunteer opportunities, humane education and expertise in animal welfare.

AAWL is a registered 501c3 and receives its funding through donations and grants. AAWL rescues more than 4,000 dogs and cats each year through rescue group and shelter partnerships, owner surrender programs, and a foster department that takes in over 1,500 puppies and kittens each year.

In their constant fight against puppy mills, they replaced a puppy mill mall store 8 years ago and have done over 8,000 adoptions from that location, showcasing rescues and animal welfare to a new audience. They are constantly innovating and creating programs to best help animals and the community.

Whether that is a slumber party program, pop up adoption events, creating a coffee that pays for animal vaccines, or wacky marketing efforts, they work every day to end pet homelessness across Arizona.
