Sun City Shadow Hills Charity Golf Tournament

I am excited to share some great news about our Second Annual Sun City Shadow Hills Charity Golf Tournament. This year, Animal Samaritans has been selected as the local charity to benefit.

Animal Samaritans was founded in 1978 by local animal lovers determined to end the suffering, abuse, and unnecessary death of local shelter animals plus to educate the pet owners of tomorrow on responsible pet ownership. After more than four decades of service, Animal Samaritans has grown to become the desert’s largest, most-comprehensive animal welfare organization by adopting out more than 10,000 homeless dogs and cats; rescuing more than 14,000 adoptable, at-risk shelter animals; and spaying and neutering more than 200,000 pets. Animal Samaritans views all living creatures with compassion and respect, with a primary focus on dogs, cats, and the people who love them.
