Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
My husband and I are dedicated to the welfare of the animals and through our efforts we have rescued, rehabilitated and found forever-homes for over 100 cats and dogs in Maricopa County. Furry Smiles Animal Rescue of Maricopa does not receive any government support for our organization. If you would like to assist us in our mission, tax-deductible donations are always welcome.
We rescue unwanted and homeless cats and dogs-from shelters, owners who cannot care for their companion pets or strays that roam the streets. Since we currently do not own our own kennel facility we foster the animals we take in. We rehabilitate those who need extra care, and all of our rescues are spayed or neutered and given proper medical attention prior to moving into their forever-home. We also take the time and groom the dogs/cats to enhance the chances of their adoption.
We hope to address our second mission of educating pet owners and our community in the near future. We envision partnering with a local business to host adoption events, and participating in local community fairs to educate and spread the word about “ADOPTION being the ONLY OPTION” when it comes to bringing a companion dog or cat into your family.
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
