The Greater Phoenix IFMA Community Outreach Committee Presents:

The #PositivePaws Event

Scheduling contactless donation pick-ups through May 31st

Who is it for and what Is It: 

The Maricopa County Animal Shelter (MCAS) Animal Supply Drive

Why Are We Doing This:

There is no doubt that we are all collectively going through one of life’s most displacing events to ever occur in our history. During this pandemic, we have seen the kindness of strangers in action, the lengths people go for love of a family or friendly celebration and the creative innovation behind new business operations to support the medical field. We have watched humanity come together. However some familiar faces have been forgotten while we have been helping our neighbors. Those are the faces of our companions, our cuddle bugs and our trouble-makers; they are our best friends and our fur babies; they are the animals that end up at the shelter before they make it into your home and into your hearts.

Right now, our local animal shelters are nearing or are at capacity as stray calls continue to come in. As expected during these unusual circumstances, donations and adoptions have slowed down and the shelters are hurting. Our committee previously had plans in place for this quarter to help our shelters and believe they need it now more than ever. In conjunction with the IFMA Phoenix Chapter campaign of #IFMAPositive, our committee would like to introduce the #PositivePaws Event.

Three Ways To Help:

Maybe you find you have more time on your hands these days or maybe you received bummer news just prior to the self-quarantine recommendations and could use some unconditional love; whatever the case, adoption is the first way to help and they are being carried out by appointment only. Visit for more details.

If you prefer the traditional way of helping, you can visit that same website for instructions on how to contribute a monetary donation, the second way to help.

The third way you can help is by throwing an extra item or two in your shopping cart, virtual or physical (during an essentials run of course), and reaching out to our team to schedule a contactless, curbside pick-up. Please Note: due to COVID-19, used items will NOT be accepted.
