Our team here at AZ CARE hope that this message finds you well,
Navigating uncertainty is nothing new to our organization but finding our footing during this time has proved challenging. When fear sets in, we often feel the need to shut down and close ourselves off from the world, but luckily you continue to show us that is not the case. We feel eternally grateful from the outpouring of love we have received from our community during this challenging time.
When the Arizona Stay-At-Home Order was given our rescue experienced another moment of uncertainty as to what that would mean for us and the 150+ animals we currently have in care. Fortunately our non-profit is counted as an essential organization because our services are a necessity for the life of animals in our state. Like the state-run shelters, we will continue to do adoptions and serve the most vulnerable of the animal community. We ask that you consider opening your hearts at home to adopting a forever friend during this time. By adopting you allow our fosters homes to continue to open to displaced pets in our community who desperately need our help, especially during kitten season.
With the shut-down of our weekly PetSmart events, per the ruling of corporate PetSmart, we have been hard at work to adapt our practices to a virtual event setting. We invite you to get to know the pets in our rescue from the comfort of your homes through our weekly Virtual Pet Fairs. We will be live streaming starting at 12pm every Saturday to help find our animals within the rescue forever families. We ask that you share, tag, and join us in the search for the perfect families for these sweet babies! We thank you for your continued support throughout this challenging time and kitten season.
