The HSMAI Community Outreach Committee plans and coordinates community service/volunteer projects throughout the year and serves as the liaison with HSMAI's "Charity of the Year" projects.

How will you make a difference in 2019? The Community Outreach Committee is working on fun and impactful events for 2019. Our goal is to offer HSMAI members the opportunity to positively contribute to the community while having fun without a year-long commitment. We welcome you to join us for one or all of our events.

HSMAI "CHARITY OF THE YEAR" FOR 2019
The Arizona Pet Project

The Arizona Pet Project

Together. For life.

At The Arizona Pet Project, the primary goal is preventing pet homelessness by keeping families with pets together. They do so by providing affordable services, resources, and support through shelter prevention programs such as free spay and neuter and shelter intervention.

Oftentimes, people surrender pets to shelters due to a lack of financial resources tied to a sudden change in circumstances. Surrendering a pet to a shelter where they are frequently euthanized is a tragedy they work to prevent.

They're here to support families by keeping their pets healthy and safe. Animals bring comfort, joy, healing and health, and they believe those benefits should be available to all. It is often those who greatly benefit from the human-animal bond they share with their pets - in some cases they may be the only family these individuals have, who need our assistance the most. With the help of our caring community, they support families and save pets.

thank you from the bottom of our barks!

"Thanks to the $10,000 HSMAI raised last year, 117 pets will receive free spay or neuter surgeries, vaccinations, and pain meds and e-collars to go home with after surgery. This equates to 3 whole days of surgeries in our community!"


Want to help?

  1. Addicted to Amazon? You can shop to spay at no cost to you. Simply switch to "Amazon Smile" instead of Amazon and select "AZPP" as your charity. Amazon donates out of their pocket for all eligible purchases.
