PHOENIX — More than 50 metro Phoenix restaurants have pledged to donate a portion of their takeout proceeds Thursday to help homeless pets at the Arizona Humane Society.

The Doggie Bag Dine Out event will help provide food, shelter and medical care to the nearly 18,000 sick, injured and abused pets AHS treats per year.

“There has never been a better reason to support Valley restaurants while also helping a great cause,” AHS said in a press release.

The humane society said the proceeds will help offset the more than $1,000 required to take in and support a pet.

Restaurants involved in the event, which also includes select eateries in Flagstaff, have been operating at lesser dine-in levels since a Gov. Doug Ducey executive order earlier this month mandated it.

Most metro Phoenix restaurants have been primarily operating through takeout or delivery since the coronavirus pandemic began in March.

“As a nonprofit organization that is not affiliated with any other animal welfare organizations and does not receive government funding, AHS relies on donations to help care for the sick, injured and abused pets that truly have nowhere else to go,” AHS said.

A list of participating restaurants can be found on the humane society’s website.
