Hi, there! They call me Merry because I look like a little lamb and also because I am a very happy dog. I was a very thin, tick infested stray when I wondered into a CVS Pharmacy. It was my lucky day because the manager's sister just happens to foster animals for Tuffie's!
The vet said that I am 9 to 12 months old which explains some of my puppy exuberance. I weigh 30 pounds now and it doesn't appear that I will grow much bigger. There were no humans to teach me anything when I lived out on the streets, so I am now learning doggy manners! I know "sit", can use a doggy door and am crate trained. I tend to bark or growl at strange dogs, but it's all bluff and I end up playing with them. I live around cats and like to chase, but not hurt them. I would be a good dog for a family with kids. I am almost housebroken, but please be patient with me! I love to cuddle and give lots of kisses, too.
I am spayed, current on shots, micro chipped and ready to go home with you! My adoption donation is $225. Please call (623) 587-9119 or call or text (925) 209-6480 or email Diane@TARescue.com to meet me.
Rescue Group Info...
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.
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.
Generally adoption donations are $250 for small dogs and puppies and $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.
Greater Phoenix area and the East Bay of san Francisco, too! We started in northern CA and still make trips to that area and have adopted animals and foster families in both areas!
