Upon approved application, making sure applicant setting is a good match for the dog, we then interview.



The interview mwill include a virtual home visit. If approved, we arrange a meet and greet.


Meet the Pet


Home Check

If all previous steps are approved, we deliver the dog to the home for final home check, and to help with a healthy transition for the dog.


Sign Adoption Contract

If Step 4 is approved, the adoption contract will be signed, the fee will be paid, and the dog will stay with its new family.

Additional adoption info

We ensure that the dog and the people are a good match and that the environment is safe and appropriate for the dog.

About Arizona Dog Rescue

We are a small foster-based group who helps owners who can no longer care for their dogs, or if someone passes and there is no family to take the dog, we can place the dog in a foster home, vet the dog, and then after personality assessment, will make the dog available for adoption.

Also, based on foster availability, we take in stray dogs and diligently look for owners. We have a good track record for reuniting pets with their families, but in the cases where no owner surfaces, we vet the dogs and prepare them for adoption, all while they are in a safe and loving foster home.

Support adoption and rescue. Why go to a dog breeder, cat breeder or pet store to buy a dog or buy a cat when you can adopt?

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life.

What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?

When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.

So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
