Sweet sweet Duchess2 was headed to a local shelter along with her four siblings when her owner passed away after a motorcycle accident. Luckily we swooped in before that happened.

At 9 years old Duchess2 is a 60 lbs Austrailian Shepard Mix who has unfortunately lost a good portion of her sight. First thing was first...this girl needed a bath and to be groomed badly. From living outside she has pebbles and misc stuff in her fur so the best course of action was to shave her. How adorable she looks now though! Her blood work looks great and is not a result of diabetes...shew.

Duchess2 has mastered the dog door and is becoming more and more confident every day. She need slow introduction to other dogs because of her blindness and seems to love all people that she meets...especially small ones.

Let us know if you have room in your home and heart for Duchess2.

About Forever Loved Pet Sanctuary

About Our Rescue Group...

Forever Loved Pet Sanctuary (FLPS) is one of only two senior animal rescues in Maricopa County, Arizona. Formed in 2012 as a non-profit 501[c][3] organization, the focus of FLPS is to promote the rescue, adoption, and well-being of senior animals. FLPS also provides public education regarding the value of adopting a senior pet. FLPS serves a public need by offering housing to a limited number of senior pets.

This safe haven, will take the burden of temporary care and housing of senior animals off of local shelters. Inevitably, local shelters resort to euthanizing these abandoned, senior animals at an alarming rate. According to a 2012 statistics report, Maricopa County Animal Care and Control (MCACC) euthanizes one animal every eight minutes it is open to the public. Euthanasia for senior residents is the primary option for most local shelters because they tend to focus their efforts on a high adoption model that includes younger “more adoptable” animals. FLPS will work with local shelters and rescues to identify the senior animals in need and provide a streamlined process for interested men, women and families who wish to adopt.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Forever Loved Pet Sanctuary (FLPS) is involved with events hosted by PACC911 (Phoenix Animal Care Coalition) and is currently in talks with a local Pet Food retail store to host a monthly adoption event.

Our Adoption Process...

Forever Loved Pet Sanctuary (FLPS) asks for an adoption donation beginning at $150 [depending on age and breed] for each of our fabulous senior dogs and cats. We require that an adoption application be completed as well as a home check.
