A Clarkdale, AZ 86324 shelter helping to find loving homes for dogs, horses, farm-type animals.
1 - 15 of 15 Adoptable Pets at This Shelter
We serve all of Northern Arizona and the Phoenix metro area.
Our primary source of dogs are EListed dogs at shelters and rescues. We rehabilitate these 'no-chance' dogs. The dogs you adopt from Pets Return Home have worked hard to build confidence, learn trust and become an adoptable dog. We provide you with the current history of the dog's behavior and learning as well as what type of neglected, abusive or abandoned situation he/she came from.
Visitation is by appointment only. Please complete our volunteer application at www.petsreturnhome.org

Pets Return Home is a nonprofit organization providing canine behavior modification, training and convalescence support for animal rescues, shelters and the Verde Valley community. Our mission is to prevent the needless “euthanasia” of healthy adoptable dogs. As such, we primarily accept dogs “in danger” of being euthanized by shelters or rescues. We offer sanctuary to select dogs on a case-by-case basis.
Our behavior team, led by Mark Happe has over 30 years of canine behavior & training development. The training team is led by Thom Milburn, a US Marine Corps veteran who started training, handling dogs and saving lives during the Viet Nam war and our medical team is led by Mark Happe, WFR with Kellie Shamrell, DVM as our advising veterinarian.
We have a broad collection of knowledge and hands-on experience working with hundreds of dogs having behavior, training or medical needs.
We are located near Clarkdale, AZ on a four-acre ranch bordering national forest and the Verde River. Many of the dogs in rehabilitation or training play, build confidence, learn trust and evolve into adoptable dogs while running as a large pack on the fenced four-acre parcel. We have a 400 square foot (sq. ft.) medical clinic, six fenced runs totaling over 4000 sq. ft., a 3000 sq. ft. agility/work yard and a 2100 sq. ft. kennel facility with ten 100 sq. ft. luxury kennels.
The location and facility layout enable dogs to socialize, exercise, overcome fears, build confidence & trust and earn adoptable status. Many of the dogs spend months at the facility. When they are ready for adoption, we know these dogs as well as we know our own dogs. We transfer this important knowledge to the adoptive family. We are always available post adoption to help the dog and family maintain a successful integration.
We always need and welcome volunteers everyday by appointment.
We are primarily supported through donations.
You can come to our facility and visit with any one or all of the dogs. VISITATION IS BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. This allows us to have uninterrupted training and rehabilitation time for the dogs. We encourage people to come out to the facility and walk dogs.
