Four Paws and Friends is a nonprofit organization based in Arizona dedicated to improving the well-being of animals. Our mission is to provide support and resources to animal shelters and rescue organizations, as well as to promote responsible pet ownership.
Our programs span four core areas:
1. Shelter Enrichment: We fund enrichment items that enhance the well-being of animals living in shelters across Arizona.
2. Grants for Medical and Training Expenses: We offer grants to rescues and adopters of shelter pets for medical treatments and behavioral training.
3. Assistance for Veterinary Medical Expenses: We provide financial assistance to pet owners struggling with costly veterinary expenses, including consultations, diagnostic tests, surgeries, and medications.
4. Microchip Clinics: We host events at which we offer free microchips, collars, and tags to pet owners in need in order to ensure that if these pets are ever lost, they can be quickly returned home, thus reducing intake at the municipal shelter.
We believe that every animal deserves a loving home, and we work tirelessly to ensure that all animals are treated with compassion and respect. Through our programs and initiatives, we strive to make a positive impact on the lives of animals and the communities in which they live.
