Make a Chihuahua your best buddy and save $50 at the Arizona Animal Welfare League & SPCA (AAWL & SPCA). The Best Buddy program provides extra help for any questions or medical or behavior issues the animal may have, during the first 30 days after adoption. Adopters also have lifetime support from the organization with low-cost veterinary services, classes and more. As part of the adoption guarantee, each adopter will receive free pet health insurance for 30 days, a free medical helpline that is monitored 24 hours/seven days per week and a free behavior helpline for the first 30 days after the adoption. If a medical issue is identified, AAWL has a low-cost clinic that works with the adopter and the pet to solve the problem. If it is a behavior issue, the behavior experts at AAWL give advice, or they may recommend one of the many training classes offered by the organization.

Animal lovers can help support rescued wildlife by adopting an
animal at the Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center (SWCC).
Adoptions will help the center provide the food and care of each
animal's specialized needs. Although sponsors don't physically take
wildlife in, each adoption will come with a personalized adoption
certificate, a photo of the adopted animal, and a choice of
herbivore, large carnivore or small carnivore Animal Kingdom
Trading Cards. Each trading card set includes several different
animals and fun facts about their way of life. The higher adoption
levels also include a plush stuffed animal of the adopted species,
Nature Center tour gift certificates, and the SWCC Wildlife
Identification Board. The adoption levels range from Naturalist to
Preservationist and start at $25. Adoptions are available
year-round online at www.southwestwildlife.org.
