Dionne came to us from the county shelter....what a hot mess she was!  This poor girl had clearly had a rough life before rescue.  She was not spayed, had mammary tumors, and a mouthful of rotten teeth. 

A trip to the vet took care of all that.  She has 2 teeth, is now spayed, tumors gone.  

We named her Dionne, after Dionne and the Belmont's hit single 'The Wanderer'--as that is what she used to do--wander--all over the house, the yard, seemingly aimless.  That pretty much has stopped, and now when she's not sleeping or eating--she runs!  She loves to gallop in the yard--it's so cute.   

She gets along with everyone in the home--humans, dogs, cats--not a mean bone in her body.   She also NEVER barks!  She shares food, beds, toys, everything.   She is just a sweet, gentle soul.   She sometime has trouble staying upright on polished floors, carpeting/rugs are easier for her.   She is a sweet old lady who deserves to live the rest of her life indoors, as a cherished family member

 

About Ruby Ranch Pet Rescue and Sanctuary

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a non profit rescue group dedicated to reducing euthanasia of animals with treatable medical conditions who would otherwise be euthanized. Our focus is primarily on the senior animals and those with special needs.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Adoptions done every Saturday at the Lake Pleasant Petsmart, located at 25372 N Lake Pleasant Peoria, Arizona 85383. (apprx NW corner of 99th Ave/Happy Valley Rd in the Home Depot plaza.) Sundays we are at Trendy Pet and Rescue, which is located inside Scottsdale Fashion Square on the second floor between Dillards and Macys from 12-4..

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption fees vary, depending on the animal. Normal adoption fees are $100-300, with senior animals having lower adoption fees and puppies having higher fees. We have potential pet parents complete an adoption questionnaire, then use that to match them with an animal who would fit well into their home.
