Let’s Play Santa Paws!

Nov 28, 2017 | Giving Back, Holidays

Each act of giving — no matter how big or how small — adds more brightness to the world. Pets give love freely, without conditions. That’s why so many homes shine so brightly with a pet in them!

While there are many pawsome animal rescue organizations in Arizona – many smaller groups struggle to get the support they need.

This holiday season, members of the AZPetVet family are banding together to play not-so-secret Santa Paws for two very small community-based organizations that make a big difference for pets in need.

Grandpaw’s Pantry provides pet supplies to rescued ‘pets to be’ — animals that are waiting to find their people and forever homes.

Helping Hands for Homeless Hounds supports the needs of homeless animals in Maricopa County.

We’re collecting donations for these organizations at AZPetVet locations until December 31, 2017. Let’s unleash some love and help them kick off the new year right!

Here’s how you can help:

Grandpaw’s Pantry is a nonprofit founded by a delightful youngster named Sonya, who’s also the enthusiastic owner of several rescue pets. In her words, “I want to encourage people to open their hearts and their homes and consider rescue pet adoption. I also want to be an animal advocate for the many dogs and cats and other animals in desperate need.”
