Adoptable Pets in Arizona
Valley of the Sun Dog Rescue is a NO KILL, all breeds rescue and adoption service and has been a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization since the year 2000. We specialize in American Pitbulls and American Staffordshire Terriers, but we accept all breeds into our rescue.

We are headquartered and operated from our home. We are a family run organization with the help of foster care providers and volunteers. With this great working staff we rescue all breeds of dogs that are ill, injured, maimed, abandoned or simply unwanted. Our dogs are obtained from the various animal shelters in the area, as well as those animals given up by private citizens.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to rescue abandoned, injured or abused dogs, rehabilitate them, have them vaccinated, spayed or neutered and help them find their forever home. We also strive to increase public awareness about the gentler, humane side of a “Bully” breed.

1. Feral Cat TNR Program

Many communities are embracing Trap, Neuter, Release programs (TNR) to improve animal welfare, reduce death rates, and meet obligations to public welfare.

2. High-Volume, Low-Cost Spay/Neuter

Low cost, high volume spay/neuter will quickly lead to fewer animals entering the shelter system, allowing more resources to be allocated toward saving lives.

3. Rescue Groups

An adoption or transfer to a rescue group frees up scarce cage and kennel space, reduces expenses for feeding, cleaning, killing, and improves a community's rate of lifesaving. In an environment of millions of dogs and cats killed in shelters annually, rare is the circumstance in which a rescue group should be denied an animal.

4. Foster Care

Volunteer foster care is crucial to No Kill. Without it, saving lives is compromised. It is a low cost, and often no cost, way of increasing a shelter's capacity, improving public relations, increasing a shelter's public image, rehabilitating sick and injured or behaviorally challenged animals, and saving lives.

5. Comprehensive Adoption Programs

Adoptions are vital to an agency's lifesaving mission. The quantity and quality of shelter adoptions is in shelter management's hands, making lifesaving a direct function of shelter policies and practice. In fact, studies show people get their animals from shelters only 20% of the time. If shelters better promoted their animals and had adoption programs responsive to the needs of the community, including public access hours for working people, offsite adoptions, adoption incentives, and effective marketing, they could increase the number of homes available and replace killing with adoptions. Contrary to conventional wisdom, shelters can adopt their way out of killing.

6. Pet Retention

While some of the reasons animals are surrendered to shelters are unavoidable, others can be prevented-but only if shelters are willing to work with people to help them solve their problems. Saving animals requires communities to develop innovative strategies for keeping people and their companion animals together. And the more a community sees its shelters as a place to turn for advice and assistance, the easier this job will be.

7. Medical and Behavior Programs

In order to meet its commitment to a lifesaving guarantee for all savable animals, shelters need to keep animals happy and healthy and keep animals moving through the system. To do this, shelters must put in place comprehensive vaccination, handling, cleaning, socialization, and care policies before animals get sick and rehabilitative efforts for those who come in sick, injured, unweaned, or traumatized.

8. Public Relations/Community Involvement

Increasing adoptions, maximizing donations, recruiting volunteers and partnering with community agencies comes down to one thing: increasing the shelter's exposure. And that means consistent marketing and public relations. Public relations and marketing are the foundation of all a shelter's activities and their success. To do all these things well, the shelter must be in the public eye.

9. Volunteers

Volunteers are a dedicated "army of compassion" and the backbone of a successful No Kill effort. There is never enough staff, never enough dollars to hire more staff, and always more needs than paid human resources. That is where volunteers come in and make the difference between success and failure and, for the animals, life and death.

10. Proactive Redemptions

One of the most overlooked areas for reducing killing in animal control shelters are lost animal reclaims. Sadly, besides having pet owners fill out a lost pet report, very little effort is made in this area of shelter operations. This is unfortunate because doing so-primarily shifting from passive to a more proactive approach-has proven to have a significant impact on lifesaving and allow shelters to return a large percentage of lost animals to their families.

11. A Compassionate Director

The final element of the No Kill equation is the most important of all, without which all other elements are thwarted-a hard working, compassionate animal control or shelter director not content to regurgitate tired cliches or hide behind the myth of "too many animals, not enough homes." Unfortunately, this one is also oftentimes the hardest one to demand and find.

****in need of foster***** Hello, I found your contact information on the NoKill network. I am reaching out to you because we adopted our dog Dougie about 3 months ago from county and he is just not adjusting well in our home. He is the perfect dog except he does NOT like my husband. He is very sweet, loves me and he gets along with our other dog and has been fine with visitors. I am not sure if he was abused by a man or if it is just my husband or possibly jealously of me. We have tried but we are unable to keep him due to this situation. Dougie was listed at county as a senior dog approx. 10 years old but he acts like a puppy and is full of energy. I think he may have just gone grey prematurely...lol. He is cuddly, potty trained, neutered, up to date on shots, microchipped and has a healthy vet report. He does have some broken front teeth possibly from eating rocks, back in the day. He does not really know commands but is food motivated and I have been able to teach him "down" (he will lay down) and he walks well on a leash, he loves his walks!! I am reaching out to everyone I can think of but if we do not find him a home he will have to go back to county. He has an appointment to be returned on Dec 4. In the mean time, I will have to spend several hundred dollars to board him because I can not continue to keep him separated from my husband by doing the room rotation thing in our house. I would much prefer to donate this money to a shelter that would benefit him or other dogs. If you can be of any assistance or know of anyone that might be interested or able to help please let me know. Thank you very much [email protected] ****update**** I have found a no kill shelter that will accept him into their foster program but they currently have no one that can take med -large breed dogs. Does anyone know someone that can foster? They will pay for food, bed, bowls and even dental work while in foster care. Please let me know Thank you!!
