Arizona Animal Welfare League

2:00pm to 4:00pm, Saturday

PetMatch Adoption Center

Chandler Fashion Center

3111 W. Chandler Blvd.


Founded in 1971, AAWL operates the state of Arizona’s oldest and largest no-kill shelter. AAWL also provides adoption, resource and education programs that improve the quality of life for dogs and cats, and offers support for pet guardians. As of February 14th of this year, AAWL has entered into a unique partnership with San Diego-based Macerich, owner of the Chandler Fashion Center (Phoenix’s second-largest mall) as well as several other retail properties in Phoenix, to convert their mall-based pet stores—which frequently acquire animals from “puppy mills” and “kitten mills”—to adoption facilities managed by AAWL in cooperation with PetSmart charities. It is hoped that this program will become a model for malls and shopping centers across the country and help lead to the eradication of unethical breeders. www.aawl.org

    Finally, Phoenix

    Phoenix often seems to be the forgotten city when it comes to book tours, so I'm especially pleased to learn that author Gwen Cooper will visit on 29 June. I'm so looking forward to meeting this amazing cat-loving woman, and to lending my support to AAWL, a truly ground-breaking organization!

    Need details, please

    I went to the AAWL website, and can't find anything about your Phoenix visit... even on their calendar. Can I just show up? Do I need a ticket to reserve a spot? I want to make the trip up from Tucson (100 miles), but not if I can't get in. (And Gwen, you can't judge AZ by a trip made in June! You MUST come again... preferably to Tucson... and preferably in Oct/Nov or March/April. I'd happily be your tour guide and introduce you to our 8 rescues!)
