Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Incontinent 

    [Read About Natural Incontinence Care] Hi! My name is Girl. I'm 11yrs old. I may be old but I'm still young at heart. I will need a new home with a doggie door. When I gotta go to the bathroom.... I gotta go!! I can't hold it in very long. Comes with old age. I still have my eyesight, hearing and I can still get around. I do have a big fatty deposit on my chest. No big worries. It doesn't bother me. I'm okay with kids in the house but I'd prefer a quiet home. I do require a re-homing fee so I go to a good home. Hope to hear from you soon!

Rhodesian Ridgeback Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Check out this handsome Boy... Tazs breed choice may not be 100% accurate, as I am second guessing at this point. He was saved from Countys E-List, and was living at the Pet Resort from October 2013 to March of 2014, The staff there says he is an awesome dog. Very well behaved and loves human contact. In March another rescue saw that we were having trouble placing Taz, as he needed someone that was able to work with him on a regular basis. We are not sure about how he is with other dogs/kids etc, and so it will be necessary do a meet and greet if you have children or other pets. The folks at Pet Resort say he loved to run the property, ... (Read More)and is excellent when they took their long walks to Tempe Lake with him. He would be a great companion for the runner/walker person. Please call 480-628-5058 if you would like to meet this nice looking guy. Current on 4:1, Borditella, Rabies and front line. He will be micro-chipped when adopted. How is rescue possible? Rescue is made possible by the compassion of individuals who open up their home to foster an animal and the generous tax deductible donations made by private citizens. We are at Petsmart on Chandler Blvd. & the 101 (Lowes Plaza) in Chandler on most Saturdays and some Sundays. PLEASE call or email prior to coming to visit a dog or puppy to be sure we will be there and your pup is still available. We do try to remove them right away from the internet once they have a home, but there are times that we error and don't take them off as soon as we would like to. This Pet is currently in foster. The adoption fee includes micro-chipping, spay/neutering, and shots. Email: OR call: (480)-628-5058. Please leave a message, and we will get back to you. THANK YOU! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ VOLUNTEERS NEEDED - FOR SMALL DOG FOSTER HOME Desired Skills and Expertise: **FOSTERING: (Volunteering) a loving & safe home. **FUNDRAISING: (Commission based) someone that can interact with the public and possibly some computer skills to be able to surf the net to find places that can be used to generate funds for our non-profit ... Rescue. "volunteer" Foster homes needed for puppies and small dogs in the East Valley. Kit Kat Rescue is a 501c3 and we really want to be able to pull dogs from the Euthanized list at the dog shelters, but we are unable to do more because we do not have enough foster homes to take them in. Innocent dogs and litters of puppies, Cats and Kittens are euthanized because of HUMAN NOT spaying or neutering their pets, or not comprehending that animals are not disposable items. They are a life-long commitment. FOSTERING: Are you aware that as a Foster, it doesn't cost you any money? Food, medical needs, toys, leashes, micro-chipping and all the immunizations are paid for through the rescue. All you need to do is give them a nice warm, safe & loving home. We also ask if you are able to drop them off at our adoption center ( PetSmart: Chandler blvd & 101, in the Lowes shopping plaza) on occasional Saturdays and Sundays. If not, it's ok, we will get them. Same goes for their needed medical. ***Please open your heart and home to save an animal in need if you are able*** FUNDRAISING: this position is also available for someone that can take the bull by its horns and drum up some fundraising events that will help us feed and care for the over populated amount of Cats, Kittens, Dogs and puppies that we currently have. * This position will pay you a percentage of what's brought in to the Rescue. If any of this sounds like something you would love to do, please call us!!! THANKS!!! (Chandler, Mesa, Tempe, Gilbert, Queen Creek, Ahwatukee areas) (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-11-15-00010Owen (male)

Rhodesian Ridgeback Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    This young guy is now called Owen. He looks to be a possible Ridgeback mix about a year old and already neutered. He was a stray that was never reclaimed. He is a very energetic dog, very playful and friendly. Not sure how he is with other dogs so meet and greet would be best to see how he gets along with your dog. He will walk on a leash but can't say if he's house trained. Owen is a really good dog but could use a little training. Haven't seen him around kids yet either so can't say how he is with them, he's probably be good with older kids but not small kids due to his playfulness he may be to rough for them. If you are interested ... (Read More)in Owen then give us a call at the shelter 520-586-3600. His adoption fee will be $25 since he's already neutered and that covers his vaccinations. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Rhodesian Ridgeback in Arizona
