COVID-19 Program Updates

On behalf of the animals awaiting their forever homes at Pet Allies Animal Shelter, thank you for your continued support in stopping pet over-population through non-lethal means.

These are confusing, anxiety-filled, and uncertain times for all of us. But this doesn't mean our mission to furnish professional, affordable spay/neuter programs and to place pets in caring homes has stopped. Our services just look a little different during this time of uneasiness and uncertainty. Here's what we're doing currently:

Effective Wednesday, July 1 all visits to the shelter will again be by appointment only. A list of dogs, cats, kittens, and puppies available for adoption are listed on this website.  Call the shelter at 928-537-8009 for an appointment to visit.   Appointments will be spaced out so that there is a minimum number of people at the shelter at any one time.  All “meet and greet” and many other adoption procedures will be conducted outdoors in one of our play areas.  Animals will be adopted on a first-come/first-served basis and no animals will be held under any circumstances.  You must follow our normal adoption procedure to adopt an animal.  If you do not have an appointment you may not be allowed to view or meet any animals and may be turned away.  

NOTE: Please do not visit the shelter if you or anyone you have interacted with is ill.  Our staff is taking personal risks in continuing to serve the public.  We encourage you to wear a mask at the shelter.  

PS: Please develop an emergency backup plan for your pets, ideally, a loved one or family member, rather than rely on the sheltering system.

Pet Allies operates a no kill animal shelter.  It is located at 1181 E Thornton Road, Show Low, 928-537-8009, and is open Sunday 1-3 and is open Monday to Saturday 11-5.  The shelter holds 40 animals when completely full.  Often there are more animals than that, so Pet Allies has foster homes that help by working with pets too young to be adopted, pets suffering from diseases, pets recovering from surgery, pets that are stressed in the shelter environment, and pets that there are no room for at the shelter.  These pets will be listed on our website but may not be at the shelter.  Arrangements can be made to see pets in foster care through the shelter.

How Can Pets Aid in Addiction Recovery?

Pet Allies was contacted by Ruben Lopez, Awareness Advocate of The Recovery Village, with a request to help spread the word about the mental health benefits of pet adoption.
