Emily's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Emily's Story...
Hi, there! I'm Emily, a 50 pound, fun loving mutt. I've been told I could have some pit bull in me and maybe cattle dog or basenji, but I sure am cute with the patch of color over one eye and my stand up ears – the better to hear you with! I am about 2-2 1/2 years old, but no one knows for sure as I was a stray, so no one knows my history. One thing is for certain, I like most other dogs and I love to play with them, although I like to be the dominate one. I have been fine around small dogs, too, even ones as small as 6 pounds. I am house trained, can use a doggy door, know “sit” and come when called. Belly rubs are another favorite and all in all, I'm just one good-natured dog. I was limping on and off so after several trips to the vet, it was determined that I have valley fever, but it appears to be a mild case and so I am on some medication which should take care of it. Please call (602) 578-7767 or email BrendaForPets@cox for more information or to meet me in person.

I love people and should do great with kids although because of my size, I might do best with bigger ones. I am very curious about cats, and wouldn't hurt one on purpose, but would probably be too much for them. I have been spayed, dewormed, am current on shots and micro chipped. My adoption donation is $200. Please call or text (925) 209-6480 or email diane@tarescue.com to learn more about me and to meet me in person.

About Tuffie's Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small, non-profit group of dedicated volunteers who rescue dogs and cats that are going to be euthanized, usually for lack of space. We have taken many animals that have been considered "unadoptable" and have found them wonderful homes with families that couldn't imagine life without them! Our motto is "saving one pet won't change the world, but how the world will change for that one pet" and the person or family that adopts it. We operate through foster families. We received our 501(c)3 status in 2005, beginning in Pleasanton, CA and then moving to Phoenix, AZ. We have animals fostered in both places, so please don't let distance stop you form inquiring about a pet that interests you. One of our foster "moms" has been rescuing horses, so we hope to be listing those for adoption soon, too. If you are interested in volunteering or donating money or other items, please don't hesitate to call or email. We will always try to accomadate you or point you in the right direction.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We currently hold Adoption Fairs every other Saturday at Amazon Aquariums and Pets in the shopping center on the southeast corner of 43rd Avenue and Thunderbird between 1pm and 4pm. Call the store at (602) 978-5287 to confirm. We are a foster based group and are also very willing to meet you at other times and places that can be mutually arranged.

Our Adoption Process...

Generally adoption donations are $175-250 for small dogs and puppies and $150-200 for bigger dogs, kittens are $100 and cats are $75. There are exceptions and each pet's adoption donation is usually listed in its bio. Our pets are usually fixed, current on shots and micro chipped. We have a pre-adoption form for you to fill out and often do home visits. We strive to make it the perfect match, but we ALWAYS want the pet returned if it doesn't work out. Adoption donations are refunded within the first two weeks minus $50, if you need to return your pet.
