AJ’s Best Friends Rescue is an all-volunteer registered 501(c)3 non-profit companion animal rescue organization working in the East Valley suburbs of Phoenix, AZ.
We are comprised entirely of experienced volunteers united and inspired by a common compassion for all animals. Our primary focus is on saving Persians & Himalayan cats destined to be euthanized in the area shelters or in other dangerous, life-threatening situations.
Each orphaned animal we help is provided proper veterinary attention, as required, and then is placed into one of our Foster Homes. Our Foster Home program is key to helping a homeless animal become a loving pet. Some of "our" cats need extra special care and attention to recuperate from medical, mental or physical neglect/abuse, or simply to regain their confidence and trust in people, but they all receive lots of TLC and basic family member training.
Another part of our philosophy and practice is building alliances with other cooperative rescue organizations, shelters, veterinarians, media, small and large caring companies, city and county agencies. By working together, we can save more lives and eliminate the unnecessary deaths of so many orphaned animals while enhancing the lives of people as well.
Shelter Driving Directions
We conduct private adoptions by appointment only. Please contact us by email. The address listed is a Mailing address only. There are no animals at that address.
We serve the SW region of the US. Anyone who is approved to adopt will be invited to Phoenix, AZ to meet the cats. We do not ship our cats.
We require that you fill out our Matchmaker Questionnaire, found on our website, to determine if there is compatibility between you and the animal. When a match has been made, we require an adoption services fee and a completed adoption contract.
