Merlin is a 4 year old Catahoula/Shar Pei Mix who loves being outside and having his bummy scratched!

Merlin was turned in to Maricopa County Animal Care & Control as stray and was placed on the euthanasia list for being human aggressive. A sweet boy that was bummed to be in the pound, knew sit and shake and rubbed up against the chainlink fence for love, we would have never guessed. Merlin is completely potty trained and crate trained. We are still working with him on a leash and a few other manners. He adores being outside and would stay out all day if it were up to him. He doesn't think he's a lap dog, which is good at 92 pounds! But he does like attention. He seems fine with other dogs of any size but hasn't been tested with cats. Due to his rating, we would only be comfortable with Merlin going to an adult-only household. Merlin is a great boy and is ready for a family to call his own!

Merlin is neutered, current on Rabies, 4-1 and Bordatella vaccines and is microchipped. His adoption fee is $100.

About Saving Animals In Limbo Rescue (SAIL Rescue)

About Our Rescue Group...

The goal of Saving Animals In Limbo is to rescue animals and provide whatever care each individual animal needs to be a successful member of a loving family. From medical attention to proper training, rehabilitation is the key to finding these lovely animals their forever homes.

Before getting involved in euthanasia list rescue, Casey and her husband John had already rescued numerous dogs and cats, as well as TNR'ed countless feral cats in Downtown Phoenix. Strays that had been tied up in parks or found roaming the streets, litters of kittens born to feral mothers, sick ferals that literally came to them for help. Whatever they could do to help any animal that crossed their path.

In February of 2013, Casey and John saw their first photo of a dog on the euthanasia list at Maricopa County Animal Care & Control. From that moment forward, they were incapable of looking the other way. Since February, Casey and John have self-funded the rescue of over 150 dogs and cats. They plan to save many more!

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption fees are $155 for dogs which includes spay/neuter, Rabies vaccine and license, 4-1 Parvo/Distemper combo vaccine, and Bordatella vaccine, as well as a microchip that remains in SAIL Rescue's name.

Adoption fees are $100 for cats and that includes spay/neuter, FIVE/FeLV testing, 3-1 combo vaccine, as well as a microchip that remains in SAIL Rescue's name.

We require potential adopters and fosters to sign an adoption or foster contract. If adopter/foster owns other dogs, a meet and greet will be performed on neutral territory, ie a park, etc. Home checks will be performed before an animal is placed with a family.
