The Animal Defense League of Arizona is a statewide animal protection organization that has worked for two decades on behalf of companion animals, wildlife, animals in laboratories, animals in entertainment, and farm animals.
The case against Wildlife Services employee Russell Files has been set for trial on July 24, 2013, at the Maricopa County Superior Court. Files has been charged with felony animal cruelty that was designated as a violent crime for allegedly baiting and trapping his neighbor’s dog Zoey, who was severely injured.
The Arizona Game & Fish Commission and Department are not in a good place right now. The Commission is the worst that ADLA has seen in over twenty years of wildlife advocacy. Both have reversed a number of incremental positive changes that they had made- such as mountain lion policies.

Ever wonder why Spay Neuter Hotline requests a $25/cat donation for Trap Neuter Return (TNR)? Although the vets we work with offer us a generous discount, we still have to pay for every surgery performed. When we have funding available from a 3rd party we can provide our services for free. However ordinarily we are charged for each surgery performed and quite often the $25 donation doesn't cover our expense.
The bill to extend the ban on public sale of animals statewide has passed its first hurdle in the Arizona Legislature. SB 1240, sponsored by Sen. Al Melvin, passed the Senate Commerce, Energy, and Military Committee on Feb.
The Spay Neuter Hotline is happy to welcome its newest clinic providing surgeries for Trap Neuter Return through the Spay Neuter Hotline. Dr. Lisa Levin and her staff at the clinic started in December, even making slots available on New Year's Eve.
