Welcome to Sun City Anthem Pet Club

What is the Pet Club?

The Sun City Anthem Pet Club is a group of SCA residents devoted to improving the health and well-being of all companion animals under their own personal care, as well as those animals who have been abused or abandoned by others.

We represent a wide variety of interests, and we are constantly trying to gather people with similar interests to pursue projects in those areas.

Many of our members are involved in volunteering and/or fostering for local no or low kill shelters.

We support a lost pet telephone hot line for the Sun City Anthem community to protect wandering animals from local predators, as well as reduce the need for calling animal control when possible.

We support efforts to train our pets to become “better citizens” in order to minimize issues that can lead to pet abandonment.

Happy Hour Pot Luck-Wednesday, May 24th from 4-7 pm


Our Pet Club turns 21 years old this month. To celebrate, we will hold our gathering at a happy hour potluck on Wednesday, May 24th, from four to seven p.m. in the Independence Center courtyard.  We are delighted to be entertained by Lipstick, an immensely talented group of singers who will perform songs from the 60s at the event.


Bring your favorite potluck dish to share, and your beverage of choice, and we’ll continue the celebration with games and prizes. This is your chance to get to know other pet-loving club members and share in a fun evening. Because we go dark for June, July, and August, this is an excellent opportunity to meet others, make friends and schedule play dates during the summer months.


Remember, all leashed pets are welcome. Follow the signs that read “Pets and Their People This Way.” You may not bring animals into the building.


We had a great meeting on September 28th! Here's the poop!

The meeting was called to order at 10:10. We allowed extra time because some people were unaware that the meeting was moved indoors due to the inclement weather, and some people had to take their furry friends home.

Treasurer/Membership report: We currently have $1,415.85 in our checking account. Before today’s meeting, we had 24 new households join the club so far this year, and an additional seven joined today.

At our Board meeting on September 16, we voted to increase dues for 2023 to $15 per household.

Joni explained that we must present a slate of candidates for the 2023 Board by October 15th and invited anyone interested in running for the board should contact Diane Rosen, Jo Phillips, or Debbie Blonder by October 10. Contact info is available on our website. 

We are also looking for the following:

  • Someone to maintain the website, which involves sending out messages to members and updating the calendar.
