Special Needs

Valley of the Sun Dog Rescue is in need of some serious donations! We currently have bills for boarding and some ongoing vet bills that NEED to get paid down if we are going to be able to continue to help. I would like to challenge each and every one of our Facebook followers to donate at least $2.00. We have 4,831 people following us on Facebook. If everyone could donate just $2.00 we would be able to pay off all medical and boarding and continue to help others in need! You all will make a huge difference in the lives of so many dogs! You can donate via paypal on this website and click on the how you can help Tab! Thank you all so much in advance!!!!

Special Need

Our 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.

Our Adoption Process

We hold adoption clinics weekly at various PetSmart pet centers in the area. Although we specialize in American Pitbull and American Staffordshire Terriers, all dog breeds in need are accepted with open arms, evaluated and treated as necessary and adopted to private homes. Our prospective adopters are required to fill out an in depth adoption contract, submit to home checks for a period of one year, as well as pay an adoption fee for the animal. Additionally, there are monetary penalties that must be agreed to for any mistreatment of the adopted animal. We also reserve the right to reclaim the animal in the event of mistreatment. Further, we reserve the right to pursue any individuals for mistreatment or neglect of the adopted animal through the court system or law enforcement agencies. All of the above must be read, initialed and the entire document signed prior to any adoption. We also have additional and specific requirements of the prospective adopters and their families to adopt a “bully” breed that must be met.
