Animal Defense League of Arizona (ADLA) is a statewide animal protection organization that has worked since 1987 on behalf of companion animals, farm animals, wildlife, animals in laboratories, and animals in entertainment.
ADLA’s largest program is the Spay Neuter Hotline which is a statewide leader in spaying and neutering companion animals and outdoor cats. It Traps, Neuters, and Returns (TNR) about 15,000 cats per year in Maricopa County and makes statewide referrals to low cost and no cost spay/neuter services.
ADLA has a long history of participation in coalitions, which are able to unify organizations to advocate for a common goal. This strategy is often more effective than single groups working alone. ADLA has successfully worked in diverse coalitions with member groups that have different perspectives than ADLA, but are willing to collaborate on achieving a common goal.
