Rochelle Phoenix, AZ 4/15/2010 12:23:54 PM Thank you for recognizing an animal shelter for the outstanding work it does! We recently adopted a wonderful dog from the Arizona Animal Welfare League & SPCA in Phoenix. I would love to see them considered for next year's award, as they have many wonderful programs in addition to being the state's largest no-kill shelter, saving the lives of thousands of animals each year. I have friends who have sent their kids to day camps there and to teen programs such as Camp Vet. Their Behavior Helpline in a great free service through which you can get help with problems before they turn into big ones that might cause some owners to give up their dogs. They also provide low-cost vaccines and micropchipping to owners, as well as spay/neuter services to smaller rescue organizations. In my mind, they truly are one of the top animal shelters in the country! Please take a look at their website at www.aawl.org. Thanks you!
