Dawson is absolutely adorable! He is very affectionate and will ask for attention by head butting you and rubbing up against you. Once you start petting him, let the purring begin as Dawson morphs into a purr machine! Dawson loves being pet...especially if you scratch his ears, head, chin, and chest…oh, who are we kidding…he loves being pet all over the place! He likes to sit in your lap but will frequently re-position himself to allow you ample opportunity to pet him all over. If he rubs up against your face, be prepared for chills to rush down your spine as he purrs sweet nothings into your ear!
Dawson is very enthusiastic and energetic when it comes to playtime. It is hilarious if you play with him on linoleum or a tile floor because he slides all over the place as he's pursuing his toys! Dawson loves chasing balls around the room and loves leaping into the air in an attempt to capture any wand toy that is being waved around. He does need to work on his form a bit…some of his landings are lacking in grace and when he stands on his hind legs to try and grab the wand toy, he'll fall over onto the floor with an "oomph" and look like a pile of cat before he picks himself back up again to pursue the wand toy once more! As Dawson is playing, he has the cutest habit of letting out these little chirping noises. I'm not sure if he's doing this as a little pep talk of encouragement to himself or if he does it because he gets so excited while playing the little chirpy noises just slip out…whatever the reason, it's pretty darn cute!
Dawson does just fine with other friendly kitties and wouldn't mind having another feline friend or two to pal around with. Dawson's affectionate nature and playful antics will make him a welcome addition to any family lucky enough to call him their own! To learn more - www.azrescue.org.
Rescue Group Info...
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 9,000 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.
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.
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.
