Arizona Pet Vet is a network of 17 animal hospitals peppered throughout the Valley area.

The company doles out tips for bringing home a new pet on its website and exhibits evidence of the animal kingdom's capacity for cuteness on its Facebook page.
The Arizona Humane Society has provided shelter and rehabilitation to homeless and abandoned animals since 1957, watching over more than 46,000 dogs, cats, and smaller critters every year as they await new homes. After proving their eligibility for adoption and consulting with the shelter staff, new owners can choose a companion from any of the pets prowling the menagerie, from puppies and kittens up to 9 months old to adult dogs and cats. Rabbits and ferrets also scurry about, searching for farmers' carrots carelessly planted in an animal shelter. For current owners, the society provides low-cost spaying and neutering services as a public service, as well as education and outreach programs to promote compassion and ensure a safe home for all creatures.
Raised cots, cushy blankets, and all their toys from home. That's how Danmar Pet Resort's guests live it up during overnight stays in the facility's doggy suites. Run by dog lovers, the air-conditioned facility is filled with suites up to 6'x7' that accommodate pooches of all breeds. Canines can also turn their vacations into spa retreats with services such as dog grooming, nail trimming, and exit baths, which freshens them up before the big trip home. Staff members also keep guests active with both indoor and outdoor play areas, and monitor goings-on 24 hours a day to ensure each pup has the safest stay.
