The Arizona Humane Society (AHS) and PetSmart®, Inc. are pleased to announce the expansion of their Project Active Duty program. Project Active Duty, an AHS’ Alternative Placement program, provides temporary foster care for pets of active military personnel throughout their deployment.
As the presenting sponsor of Project Active Duty, PetSmart has dedicated $30,000 over two years to the program. The partnership will raise awareness of the program while also dedicating the necessary resources needed to recruit foster families and increase the number of foster homes available for Project Active Duty pets and the thousands of ill or injured pets who may need temporary shelter beyond what their facilities can provide.
The Arizona Humane Society will host a special launch event and foster orientation on Sunday, April 6 from 1 – 3 p.m. at Avondale’s Council Chambers located at 11465 West Civic Center Dr. Avondale, AZ 85323. The event will feature a special program including light snacks, current Project Active Duty pets and resilient AHS pets recovering and available for foster care. For those interested in attending the April 6 foster orientation, they can sign up here.
On Friday, March 14, the first F-35 Lightning II assigned to the 56th Fighter Wing was officially delivered during a ceremony at Luke Air Force Base (AFB) in Glendale, Ariz. In case you missed this historical event, below is the video that was played during the ceremony. Enjoy!

This is usually the opportunity I take to educate our partners, supporters and community about the great programs, services and unique experiences we have brought to the airmen and their families at Luke AFB. But this time, I will not explain the Financial Saves Expo, Fiesta Bowl Parade, 56th Fighter Wing Annual Awards Dinner, Luke AFB Spouses Dining-In Event or the 2nd Annual Dorm Dweller Holiday Party and their respective successful outcomes.
What I will do is explain once again “how we make these amazing things happen”. It is because of the great financial support we receive from the Arizona community “and” our golf tournament, that we can afford to bring programs and services to Luke families that enhance their quality of life.
