while they are waiting to be
adopted. All provisions and medical
care are provided.
If you'd like to offer a needy small
dog a safe and loving Foster Home,

Health Watch: Please note all the
(1) There are two distinct Parvo seasons in AZ;
spring into summer and summer into fall. Please
be sure your dogs are protected against this
killer disease, especially if you take your pal
to public doggy parks.
(2) We are
number one in the nation for new cases of West
Nile Virus; this should tell you how many dang
mosquitoes we have here. It only takes one bite
from one infected mosquito to give you pal heart
worms. Please have your pal heartworm tested
(it's cheap) and give your dogs their monthly
heartworm preventative religiously. We prefer
Heartgard; we advise against the multi-month
(3) MONSOON season means only one thing to
doggie folks: VALLEY FEVER! All that wind and
dust and moisture kick spores up into the air;
once inhaled, each spore blossoms into a
hellacious fungal infection. Although there is
no cure, early treatment is key . Please get
your dog tested twice each year; in September
and in March (after the monsoons). Twice yearly
testing's a lot cheaper than treating a rip-roaring
case of VF. Thank you!
Adopting a friend
Our mission is to be sure that the dogs in our care are
never homeless again. Therefore, we exert our best efforts to
ensure a perfect match between the dog and the applicants. Home
visits are done whenever possible and will be arranged after a
completed application has been approved by our adoption
In some cases, the dog will
accompany our home inspection team to meet the applicant. We
honor any clearly expressed preference the dog may show for one
family over another, all other things being equal. If all goes
well, an adoption may be awarded at the time of the
We all work full time so
please be patient and allow us at least 24-48 hours to reply to
your email. We're usually quicker, but need your understanding
if we can't be.
There is a nonrefundable
adoption donation upon adoption of $325 cash for adults and
seniors and $425 cash for puppies 13 months and younger.
This helps to offset expenses, and represents a substantial
savings to you over what you would pay for a dog from either a
pet shop or breeder PLUS their vaccines, spay / neuter surgery,
vet exams, microchip, socialization and training.
We prefer to make instate
adoptions and much prefer Maricopa County; however, we have,
when it was the most perfect match, adopted some of our most
beloved rescued doggies to folks residing in more distant AZ
We will never ship a dog
anywhere, so please don't even ask us.
We regret that we cannot
"hold" dogs for you; once your application is submitted, please
be prepared to meet and adopt the dog quickly; other homeless
dogs, who might otherwise be euthanized, are waiting for rescue
space. We thank you immensely for your understanding.
If you are interested in fostering, please know that we
provide all the supplies your foster furkid will need;
premium food, bed, toys, crates, harnesses, leashes,
training, bowls, medications, grooming, vet care, and so on.
All that's needed is your safe and loving home, a fenced
back yard, occasional transportation to and from
appointments, and participation on your foster kid's
adoption committee; after all, you'll know your foster
doggie better than the rest of us!
