Heidi's Village

      PHOENIX, ARIZ. (Jan 26, 2021) – Heidi’s Village, a first of its kind animal shelter, in partnership with Arizona Animal Rescue Mission (AARM) is hosting a free community clinic to provide microchips and tags to 300 Valley pet owners on Saturday, Feb. 6 from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m.

Microchipping and tagging companion animals helps to ensure that they are returned should they get lost. Heidi’s Village and AARM are committed to helping owned dogs and cats remain with their families and avoid being one of the 130,000 animals lost or surrendered to local shelters each year in Maricopa County alone.

Heidi’s Village is a state-of-the-art shelter and rescue focused primarily on providing critical services to the existing animal welfare community in order to increase our collective impact.

This $22 million facility opened in April 2020 and can house over 250 dogs and 200 cats, provides both routine and critical medical intervention with a full-service veterinary clinic and has a neonate kitten nursery, among many other services on the 5-acre, 48,000 SF campus.

The clinic will be open to the first 300 privately owned animals in line on Feb. 6 at the Heidi’s Village Campus located at 600 N. 40th St., in Phoenix. The clinic will run from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. and is only available to private owners. No rescue groups, please.

Appointments are not necessary as requests will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis. All participants will be required to wear a mask and all animals are required to be on a leash or in a carrier.
