Hi, there! My name is Keira and I am a 6 year old, black with tan, labradoodle. I weigh 57 pounds, but I have been very gentle with a 3 year old child and live with a chihuahua. However, I haven't ever lived around kitties, so not sure how I'd be with them. I I don't like toys and if one of the other dogs is playing with one, I'll take it away and deposit it outside! I also love to sleep with you, but tend to be a bed hog! I have been in the same home since I was a pup, but my owner recently died and there is no one in the family who can adopt me, so these great rescue people promised to find me the perfect new home. I have always used a doggy door and lived around my boyfriend, Duncan, a 5 year old labradoodle. He is looking for a new home, too, but we don't necessarily have to be adopted into the same family, but we are very bonded to each other. I'm the doggy on the right in the photo and Duncan is on the left. The photo was taken before we were groomed. I am spayed, current on shots, groomed and will be micro chipped before going home with you. We love water and will swim in your pool if you have one. We are used to running on 9 1/2 acres, so you must have some patience with us and be willing to work with us on our manners. We are crate trained. My adoption donation is $200 or you can adopt me with Duncan for $300. We will require regular grooming. Please call Tuffie's Animal Rescue at (925) 209-6480 or email Diane@TARescue.com for more information and how you can 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!
