Serving the local Tucson shelter community to rehabilitate dogs for their forever homes and advocating for spay/neuter, vaccination, & microchip education.
So you have decided on a “RAD” dog. Please complete our adoption application to begin the process
- Once you have completed the adoption application, we will be in contact with you to determine if the dog you have selected fits your home/lifestyle as well as to discuss previous pet experience.
-We will contact your veterinarian (if applicable) to ensure current pets are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and routinely cared for.
-If you rent your home, we do require to check with your landlord to ensure dogs are permitted and that there are no size or breed restrictions that will hinder your application.
-We also conduct a yard check. This includes coming to your home to see the environment where the dog will live and ensure the utmost safety. The yard check is typically when you will begin your trial adoption after completing your adoption agreement. We allot 7 days for the dog to live with you in your home; giving you both time to adjust to having a new pet as well as ensuring you have made the right decision.
-Your adoption fee (see fees below) will be held until the 7th day at which point we will finalize the adoption, transfer the county license to your name/address and send all copies of applicable medical records to you, the new owner.
Our adoption fees are:
-Puppies (6 months and under): $250* (*This includes the adoption fee as well as a 6 week Puppy Obedience Class in Tucson to help you and your puppy bond through obedience and ensure everyone is set up for success.)
-Seniors (7 years and older): $95
-Adults (7 months - 7 years): $125
Our adoption fees include spay or neuter of your new pet, a microchip, and current vaccinations applicable to the age of the dog you are adopting.
