Dog Shelter in Phoenix, AZ

Committed Small Dog Rescue

From pet microchipping to socializing and caring for the animals in our shelter, we accomplish quite a bit for our furry friends! Finding a forever home is of course the ultimate goal for each dog in our care, but all of the steps leading up to it need to be handled as well. That means finding foster homes when necessary, needed medical care no matter the cost for the dogs in our care, feeding, bathing, and all of the other little chores that go into keeping the animals in our care safe and happy while being up for adoption.

Our main functions are:
  • Adoption
  • Fostering
  • Pet Microchipping

Without the support of generous donations from caring individuals like you, we wouldn’t be able to accomplish what we do. We stretch your donations as far as possible and practice good stewardship of our finances to be as effective as we can be. If you’re interested in donating either financially or with supplies, we’re eternally grateful to receive your support.
