                           Welcome to the Arizona Animal Welfare League & SPCA’s                   Walk to Save Animals 2015!

For the past 6 years, Brody and I have raised several thousand dollars for the                         Oldest and Largest NO-KILL Shelter here in Arizona.

However this year will be quite different….This will be the first time in 7 years, that my beloved best friend and side kick will not be joining me. In January I had to make the heart breaking decision to put my best friend down. It was sudden and not something I was prepared for.

If you know me, you know that he and I were attached at the hip...

 

Enter Finley (aka Finn)….a 1yr old tall, skinny, sweet stray from Yuma who needed a home. Missing my best friend, I brought him home on a trial run.                                    He never left.

           

This year, Finn and I will walk in memory of Brody.

Not only do I do this walk each year, but I have also been volunteering here for a few years and I cannot speak high enough of this organization. The AAWL & SPCA truly do amazing work and continue to be cutting edge in their public outreach programs, low cost clinic, training classes, and education programs                        for kids (Heck, I want to go to vet camp!!!). 

This is not your ordinary shelter, but it’s truly a model for what every              shelter should strive to be.

Sadly, Maricopa County is just behind LA in terms for euthanasia numbers.Our county puts down roughly 40-60k animals a year. A YEAR.

Help me support the Arizona Animal Welfare League & SPCA continue to increase the number of animals they are able to save each year!

Brody, Finn and Chloe thank you. 

Here's to you Brody...the BEST dog a girl could have EVER hoped for!

I miss you my sweet boy....
