Anthem Pets Animal Rescue


Anthem Pets is a 501 (c)(3) rescue organization dedicated to reuniting lost pets with their owners and rescuing abused and abandoned dogs and cats. By working with committed volunteers, foster homes, local veterinarians, and trainers we are able to assist hundreds of animals every year, provide them with loving temporary care, give them necessary medical attention and find them well-matched, carefully screened forever homes.

More About Us

Anthem Pets volunteers and fosters are active 365 days a year. Each day our Lost & Found volunteers are either helping a resident who has lost a pet, or responding to a report of a found animal. The priority and first step is to try and reunite the pet and owner. We start by using social media to share information, pictures, and location of the lost or found pet. If a resident can contain a loose pet, we get it scanned for a microchip. If the owner isn't immediately located, we put out the request for a foster family. If the owner isn't found after 10 days the pet may be brought into the rescue, depending on issues such as temperament.

If a pet becomes our responsibility it receives a wellness check-up, is vaccinated, microchipped, and spayed or neutered. It then stays with a foster until it is adopted. Some found pets are sick or injured and we work with our veterinary partner, Daisy Mountain Vet Hospital, to determine the best course of treatment for these animals.

Additionally, Anthem Pets hosts several Low Cost Clinics throughout the year with Academy West Animal Hospital, helping residents get pet vaccinations and microchips at a reduced price. Volunteers re-bag donated pet food for distribution to those in financial need, and importantly, they answer a Pet Hotline from 8 am to 8 pm, 7 days a week to help pet owners with a range of issues, from lost pets to emergencies.

Because we do not have a shelter, fosters are an essential component of the rescue. While we have some dedicated fosters, we always need more. Many of these families become what we lovingly call "Foster Failures", which means they've adopted the pet they were fostering. We always need more fosters, especially during the spring kitten season!

When natural disasters strike, Anthem Pets is there to support our community as well. We were called in by the American Red Cross in 2014 during flooding in New River, Arizona, to act as the primary rescue for families that were displaced and needed temporary care for the animals. It was an honor and privilege to help these people.
