RESCUE is the last voice for dogs and cats who, through no fault of their own, find themselves awaiting death at our county pounds. Since 1995, we have operated with the philosophy that for every animal we place we will be back to rescue another facing an untimely death. To date, we have fulfilled that promise nearly 12,000 times.
While all of the cats and dogs presented on this site have stayed at the Maricopa County pounds, they are now safe in our care and away from the threat of euthanasia. These amazingly resilient and wonderful beings reside in the homes of our dedicated foster parents or with our boarding partners until their permanent home is located. RESCUE does not have a shelter.
