Hi! My name is Nana and my foster mom says I’m the wiggliest old lady around since my tail only stops wagging when I’m asleep! I love living in a comfy home and having soft things to sleep on, so I try really hard to make my humans happy. My old bones do bother me sometimes but my foster family gives me these yummy treats that make them feel so much better that I can run right upstairs if I want to now! I really love my foster sisters and do my best to keep up with them but they’re a little too crazy for me sometimes. The ferrets on the other hand, YUCK. I don’t like those things and would probably do best in a home without smaller animals. I really like kids and love to check on babies when they cry and try to kiss all their tears away. My favorite things in the world are meal times and the couch. I love the couch so much that sometimes I pretend not to hear my foster mom calling me but she says that’s ok because I’m old and I’ve earned it. I’m looking for a single level home since I probably won’t be able to handle stairs too much longer and would do great in a calmer home since I love my sleep so much. In fact, when my foster mom says “go to bed” I go right to my kennel for the night! It would make me so happy to be part of your family. If you think I might fit in with you, please contact my foster mom Danielle at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to meet me! Thanks for reading about me!
We are a 501(c)(3) all volunteer non-profit that raises funds for outside medical care for the ill or injured animals at Maricopa County Animal Care and Control in both Phoenix and Mesa, Arizona. Shelter medicine is extremely limited and many dogs get put on the euthanasia list for issues that can be treated by full-service vets. Our fosters are all county shelter fosters and they help the animals heal in a home setting while networking them to find their forever home.

Our Adoption Process...
All of our fosters are still Maricopa County Shelter Dogs so the adoption fees and contracts will be the same ones used if the dog is adopted at the county shelter. We will do meet and greets with any other family animals and we do home checks.
