Important Note

Noel is best friends with Rio. Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!
Noel is a 10 1/2 year old, Female, Declawed, Tortoiseshell. Noel was thrown from a car at the door of a veterinary office when she was approx. 6 months old. She had a large cut all the way down her side and was bleeding. It appeared she had been attacked by a dog. The vet stitched her up, and one of the employees agreed to take her home. Despite her traumatic start to life, she is the biggest lover you will ever meet. Noel is very affectionate and all she wants to do is cuddle and talk all day long. She is always ready to snuggle and would be completely satisfied if she could simply be your couch buddy for the rest of her life. She isn't very interested in playing with toys but loves soft blankets, a warm lap, being near the tv and food.

She is shy of new things/situations. She also is terrified of dogs. Given her sedentary nature, she stays the healthiest when she is fed scheduled meals instead of leaving food out at all times. She has lived with her step brother Rio all her life, and if possible would like to go with him to her new home. Noel and Rio are a bonded pair and need to be adopted together.

Adoption fee for Noel is $75.00. If you are interested in adopting Noel, please complete the Cat Interest form on our website (www.azrain.org) and, if you are selected as a prospective adopter, we will contact you to set up a meet and greet with Noel. Thank you for considering rescuing an animal in need.

CAN YOU HELP US????
R.A.I.N. Rescue is desperately seeking foster homes for SMALL dogs, puppies, cats and kittens.
We currently need volunteers for these Departments:
Foster Homes, Transporters, Groomer, Adoption Center, Donation Station and Fund-raisers.

FOSTERING: We take in small dogs, puppies, cats and kittens to foster.
The fosters DO NOT pay out of pocket for expenses while fostering ANY animals in our Rescue. This is a common misconception. The Rescue pays for everything necessary. We also accommodate for time away*.
*Some of our best fosters have been the winter visitors, who may only be able to take in dogs for 3-4 months.

TRANSPORTERS: A person designated to take the dogs and cats for their vetting, (spay/neuter etc), grooming and sometimes to pick up and drop off at adoption events when the fosters are unable to bring them. Transporters may also pick up new strays/owner surrenders etc. and taking them to their foster home. This position will pay mileage.

FUND-RAISERS: Anything to help bring in funds to our non-profit Rescue. You will earn 10% of the money brought in to help the animals for each event!

GROOMER: A skilled groomer with their own grooming equipment that can groom/bathe/clip nails on small dogs/puppies. We will supply the shampoo/towels etc. We would bring them to your location in the east valley.

VOLUNTEERS AT ADOPTION CENTER: Cleaning cat kennels (inside help with cats and kittens weekday days and nights), cat laundry (pick up and drop off), play time with cats, feeding cats, walking dogs, cleaning dog kennels, watering, feeding, quiet petting time and play time with dogs.

PHOTO POSTINGS: Cats and kittens that are adoption ready at the Petsmart Center, take photos of cats and kittens and get information on them, post on three of our favorite sites online.

DONATION STATION: Someone to faithfully be at Petsmart and set up the donation table (table provided), The table will have items on it with information about our rescue, our business cards, volunteer job listings, a donation jar, and a donation basket for anyone wanting to donate misc. items (dog food/toys etc) and small items that can be given out to those who donate. Flexible day(s) and time(s) can be discussed.

*All these positions help the animals find forever homes. Please open your heart and possibly your home, costing you only time. Nothing out of pocket….and all from your heart. Many Thanks!!!!

If you are able to help out~ Please go to our website for a volunteer or foster application. www.azrain.org

During store hours you can see some of the cats in the pet windows..and adopt one if you fall in love with it!

*We NEVER bring our dogs to Petsmart Saturday events. We are strong believers that doing it this way is IMPULSE adoptions. (see a cute one and MUST take it home..)

Check out our website for current dogs/puppies/cats and kitties for adoption.

Our Adoption Process...

CALL: CATS, 480285-7322
CALL: DOGS, 480-628-5058
We do Cat consultations with an adoption employee or Petsmart Manager. Adoption Interest Forms maybe required prior to adoption and Adoption Forms are required at adoption. All cats must be taken home in a carrier and dogs must be taken home on a leash or carrier when leaving the store.
Kitten/Cat adoption fees range from $75.00-$125.00. We may give a discount if two animals are taken together or if we have an adoption special in place.
We microchip Cats and Dogs for a $20.00 donation fee to your personal pet(s) too. A dog home inspection will be conducted by the Dog Director for Foster homes and adoptive homes. These will be set up to accomodate both parties.
