Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Pet Allies began operating the City of Show Low's animal control shelter in October of 2012, at which point the shelter was 90% euthanasia. In one day Pet Allies changed that shelter to a 96% save shelter. It remains at 94%-96% save shelter. 1250 plus pets were received at the shelter in 2017. There are few shelters in Navajo and Apache County. There is constantly a waiting list for pets to get into the shelter.

Pet Allies also operates a high volume low cost spay/neuter clinic to get to the root of the unwanted litters. There is currently a one month wait to get an appointment at the clinic. The need is great.

Goals & Strategy

Charting impact

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

Continue to operate the shelter as no-kill and increase the number of animals that are helped from Apache and Navajo Counties, where there is an extreme lack of shelters and places for stray or owner surrendered animals.

Pet Allies partnered with Show Low Animal Control and changed their shelter to 96% save rate. Pet Allies partnered with Snowflake/Taylor Animal Control and changed their shelter to 90% save rate. Pet Allies targets small animal control facilities which are under-funded, under-staffed and works to help them save their animals.

Pet Allies wants to make it possible for this rural community to be a no kill community.

Pet Allies works to help animals in areas where there are no shelters or services such as the Whiteriver Apache Reservation and Navajo and Apache Counties.

Provide discounted and free spay or neuter services, especially to animals that are high risk of having unwanted litters.

Reach out to high kill local shelters and help them find placement for their animals.

Network with rescue groups and shelters in Phoenix metropolitan area that can take animals from local shelters that are without resources and assistance from rescue groups.

Work with Best Friends Animal Society and other organizations to learn current practices and policies to help more animals.

Pet Allies operates a spay/neuter clinic 11 days a month. The clinic can increase to operate more days when funding is available. The services at the clinic are at maximum use of current income levels.

Pet Allies operates the City of Show Low's shelter as a no kill shelter but as with most shelters, is always asked to help more animals than the shelter can hold.

Pet Allies is always working with Best Friends Animal Society, ASPCA, and other larger organizations to find current and effective ways to increase adoptions. Change is accepted and encouraged.

When Pet Allies first started working in this community, about 5,000 animals entered the local Humane Society shelter each year. 50% were saved. Currently 1250 or so enter Pet Allies shelter each year and the same number enter the Humane Society each year.

Year after year of dedication to spay neuter has had an impact in the number of unwanted pets entering local shelters.

Pet Allies began by primarily targeting spay and neuter. It is now targeting sheltering locally as well. Turning two local animal control shelters from high euthanasia shelters to no kill shelters has made a significant impact on local animals and taught people in the community that it can be done. Animal control does not have to be the old way of catch and kill after 3 days.

Next, reaching out to Apache and Navajo County and the Apache Whiteriver Reservation. Helping them provide services where there are currently none.
