Making a Difference

About Credit Union West Arizona

Our staff has made giving back to our communities a top priority. We embrace this culture of giving through our Jeans Day Fund. Every year we choose four non-profits to receive the collected quarterly donations. In total, over $12,000 was donated in 2015!

This year’s 2nd quarter recipient is Arizona Animal Welfare League (AAWL). AAWL is the largest and oldest no-kill shelter in Arizona. Their mission is to create a world where there are no homeless dogs and cats. Over the past 44 years the organization has grown from adopting a handful of animals each year to a full service animal welfare organization and leader in innovative behavior training, medical care, adoption, education and community outreach programs.

Our Dollars at Work:

AAWL rescues, rehabilitates and re-homes more than 5,000 dogs and cats that are abandoned or that have been surrendered by their owners. The shelter has an onsite veterinary clinic, kennels with a separate cattery, a training center and a freestanding infirmary. All pets offered for adoption have been spayed or neutered, micro-chipped and are current on all vaccinations. Their medical team provides any needed medical treatments and their behavior department evaluates all animals prior to adoption.
