Almost There: A Mom + Pups Rescue

2611 E Indian School Rd.
Phoenix, AZ 85016

Our Mission

To save mama dogs and pups, provide care and enrichment, and find loving, forever homes.

ATR specializes in pregnant and nursing dogs and pups who need time and space to grow and become socialized. Our moms and pups have significant social time with adults, children, and other dogs. While in our care, our puppies go through a specially designed curriculum “Puppy Culture” developed by a team of experts including behavioral veterinarians and credentialed trainers. As soon as they are born and until they leave our care, our pups participate in age-appropriate enrichment activities to help with their socialization and overall development into well-adjusted furry family members. Our mama dogs also work with on site behaviorists who develop personalized programs to prepare them for life as your new best friend. All our dogs are exposed to many experiences to set them – and their new families – up for a lifetime of success. ATR is determined to give adopters all the information available about our dogs so we can find the perfect match. All of our dogs are altered, micro-chipped, and up-to-date on vaccines prior to adoption. Adoption fees paid help cover our substantial costs and fund our life-saving work.
