Important Note

Guinness is best friends with Libby. Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!
Guinness and his big sister Libby [formerly Cubby] came to us when their Dad found himself in a tough situation. There's nothing more heart wrenching that to watch someone so down on their luck have to then surrender their furry companions. Time was not going to help their situation, at least in the short term.

Guinness is a 9 year old 15 lbs dachshund mix with a big personality. He is shy on first meeting but once he warms up and is comfortable he is a lover. Guinness was raised with small children and loves apples and toys of course. He's also a very smart gentleman and knows commands such as sit, stay, dance, roll over, spin and fetch. Guinness likes to sleep on the bed and will even go under the blankets.

We'd love to try to keep these two together if possible as Libby is attached to Guinness, but if not we would love them to go to homes with other dogs.

Let us know if you h ave room in your heart and home for Guinness and Libby.

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.
