Sweet lil' deer-head Chihuahua Zola came from a broken home where her mama had her since she was a baby. (check out her baby picture). She is now 3.5 yrs old. She was very much loved and it was super hard for the mom to hand her over, but she knew that she wasn't able to give her the home she really deserves. Attention was pushed aside to be able to run the household and care for her son, and you can tell Zola was the center of attention at one time. A VERY loving girl, who does well with proper introduction to smaller dogs.
She would really like to spend the rest of her life on your lap just being petted, or curled up on the couch with you. She is housetrained, current on her booster, Micro-chipped, rabies shot and she is spay. Her beautiful black coat with one larger front white mitten makes her one stunning gal. Zola will sneak you a lick whenever she can get close enough to let you know she likes you.
She is very good around all humans. She weighs in at 6.7 lbs. She does well going for walks and car rides. She will eat all the food if put down, so needs separate feeding times (am & pm). This girl has never ate table scraps, and does wonderful with a good dog food. Not a yippy Chihuahua, just a great girl!
Her adoption fee is set at $225.00
IF you have your application in already for another dog and you were not chosen to get it, and if its been within 90 days, theres no need for you to fill out another application if you are interested in this pup. All you need to do is email us and let us know you applied for ___, and now you are interested in ___. We will make sure the switch is made for you!
OTHERWISE…******IF Interested in adopting, Go to the ADOPT tab, and click on Dog Interest Form on our website at www.azrain.org..
*IF YOU CAN READ THIS, I AM STILL AVAILABLE. IF YOU WANT TO HAVE A CHANCE AT ME, PLEASE FILL OUT AN APPLICATION BY GOING TO AZRAIN.ORG AND CLICKING ON THE ADOPT TAB, THEN THE DOG INTEREST FORM. THERE IS NO WAY TO BE CONSIDERED FOR ME WITHOUT COMPLETING ONE.
R.A.I.N RESCUE DOES NOT BRING ANY OF THEIR DOGS OR PUPPIES TO ANY EVENTS. IF YOU ARE CHOSEN TO SEE ME, YOU WILL GET A CALL. SOMETIMES IT TAKES A BIT TO FIND OUR FOREVER HOMES AS WE HAVE TO BE SPAY or NEUTERED 1ST, CURRENT ON SHOTS AND MICRO-CHIPPED….AND THE DOG DIRECTOR IS VERY PICKY! ITS ALL ABOUT “US”!
Please don’t call to ask if this dog/puppy is still available. We remove them with in 24 hours of adoption, besides, you know you will find another one and your application will be good for 90 days for any of our dogs/puppies at R.A.I.N. Rescue!
The 1st step to adopting any of our dogs is to fill out an application by going to our website. www.azrain.org. Click on forms tab, then DOG INTEREST FORM.
We do not bring our small dogs to adoption events, because
#1) they are normally scared to death and very nervous, not knowing what’s going on with the many people coming up to the pens and hovering over them.
Many shiver and shake with the unknown.
#2) People adopt on impulse when they see a particularly “cute” dog/puppy.
When they are adopted on impulse, reality sets in with in the 1st month of
adopting it…Oh, this puppy ate the leg off my chair, I can’t have that!..,
or …You said this dog was house trained and it pees all over…
and then in many cases they are returned to rescue.
#3) When people have to fill out a form 1st, and read all the questions about the care of a dog/puppy, they see that there are many aspects to adopting a family member, that they may not of thought of. They also realize that it is a life time commitment.
The application Is done prior to adopting, so the family understands the seriousness and responsibilities of ownership.
We have applications available at 2840 W Chandler Blvd. (At Petsmart, in the Lowes shopping center).
It is located at the 101 and chandler blvd.

~~~~~~~~~~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 and Nothing out of pocket. BUT all from your heart.
If you are able to help out~ Please go to our website for a volunteer or foster application.
