Mission

Our Mission: To eliminate euthanasia as a means of controlling pet overpopulation in Pinal County by building collaborative partnerships, providing essential services, and creating fundamental programs. We maintain our focus on addressing the source(s) of the problem, rather than its aftermath, and are dedicated to providing programs and services that accentuate empathy toward and responsibility for pets. We consider this emphasis crucial to cultivating the next generation of compassionate, thoughtful and responsible animal-caregivers, and ending the cycle of killing pets for the sake of space or resources.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goals are:
(1) to reduce pet overpopulation in Pinal County, AZ;
(2) to keep pets with their people and out of open admission shelters;
(3) to provide basic information on responsible pet ownership through humane education.

Pets In Need Action League's strategies are:
(1) to reduce pet over population through the provision of access to free spay/neuter (financially disadvantaged pet owners in Pinal County, AZ are our current priority);
(2) to reduce the surrender of pets to open admission animal shelters through provision of free pet food assistance to financially needy pet owners in Pinal County, AZ; and
(3) to promote "bring home" knowledge of responsible pet ownership through the provision of humane education to third graders in Pinal County, AZ schools.

Pets In Need Action League is capable of providing access to free spay/neuter surgeries through our donor, fundraiser and grant supported Spay-Neuter Assistance Program, run in conjunction with mobile veterinary provider, MASHvet. Our free pet food bank (also donor, fundraiser and grant supported) is currently operational in five different locations in Pinal County, with plans to continue outreach to additional communities. Pets In Need Action League's "Canines With Class" humane educational program is currently provided to more than 10 elementary schools located throughout Pinal County, with plans to continue expansion to other schools/towns as volunteer staffing permits.

To date (2018) Pets In Need Action League has provided more than 900 free spay/neuter surgeries for the pets of financially disadvantaged pet owners, and has distributed more than 30,000 pounds of free pet food to pet owners struggling to feed their pets.
