Volunteer with Us!
Arizona Animal Rescue and Sanctuary (AZARS) is in need of foster families to care for dogs and puppies recently rescued and awaiting adoption. The reward is the unconditional love that only a rescued animal can give and the sincere gratitude of the AZARS organization.
If you can take a foster dog or cat into your home and supply it with love and attention, please let us know. We will take care of all vet expenses at our participating vets. We will provide food and supplies when available. The foster is responsible for transportation to and from our Petsmart adoption events. If you are interested please
Help us to SAVE LIVES!
Our main need is FOSTER HOMES! Each and every dog or cat we can put in a foster home means another life can we can save! It's easy to be a foster family.............you take in the dog, cat, puppy or kitten and treat it as if it were your own pet. Give them lots of TLC, get to know their likes/dislikes, and let them have a loving place to stay until they are adopted.
There are some pets who need to be nursed back to health and the best place for them is a caring foster home. All vet bills are paid for by Arizona Animal Rescue and Sanctuary. This experience is so rewarding knowing that you were involved in assisting a sick cat/dog get better!
Most foster pets do need standard medical done prior to being ready for adoption and we may need their foster family to take them to the vet. All vet bills are paid for by Arizona Animal Rescue and Sanctuary. We also ask the foster families to bring their foster pet to adoption day once they are ready for their new family!
Does this sound like something you can do? Then please contact us at
