Hi! My name is Lionel. I'm an orphaned dog in search of a family to call my own. A lot of people that have told me that I am a very good dog. I'm not sure what that means but I can say that I enjoy walking with my human and canine friends, I don't bark unnecessarily and while I am not one to lick the skin off your face, I am a polite, loving, gentle dog. I also am very good at playing fetch. I've even been known to spice up the game a bit. My game of fetch, which is patent pending, goes like this. I bring you a rock, you throw the rock, I chase after the rock and to show off my victory of capturing said rock, I have a victory dance of sorts. I quickly dig a little hole. Not for the rock mind you, this is just my way of keeping score! I bring you the rock and we go through the whole thing again. Now folks might be just fine with playing the "old fashioned" game of fetch but I get quite a lot of chuckles with my version and it keeps the game going even longer for me so it's a win-win! My human friends have told me that I don't have to play with rocks anymore that I can play the same game with balls, which they are right and BOY do those balls go so much farther than rocks are are a lot easy on my mouth!

So as you can see I'm smart and funny. Not to brag but I've also been told I'm much more handsome in person so I guess I have that going for me too. One thing that can't be truly measured is the size of my heart and the amount of love I have to give. For that, you'll just have to fill out an application to meet me in person. I hope to hear from you soon! Love Lionel! VIDEO OF LIONEL


About Our Rescue Group...

RESCUE is a registered non-profit volunteer based animal rescue organization located in Maricopa County. RESCUE has no central facility and is volunteer run. Our focus is on the "kill lists." We were founded in 1995, and with the support of our volunteers and our community, we have found homes for over 11,000 dogs and cats. Our motto is for every animal adopted, we are back to rescue another. We depend on the community for our support and offer a variety of satisfying ways for you to get involved in our mission to end the killing of the orphaned dogs and cats. Please consider adopting, volunteering or donating.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have a shelter. We are at various special events around the valley. Please see our Upcoming Events section on our website for further information. We look forward to meeting you and introducing you to some of our wonderful animals.

Our Adoption Process...

Fill out an online application, have an interview with a Matchmaker, if we are in philosophical alignment, set up a meet and greet and if all goes well finalize the adoption. Our service fee for dogs is $150 and $125 for cats. All our dogs and cats are spayed and neutered prior to adoption.
