We rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome dogs in need

Welcome to Better Days! We're a 501(c)3 non-profit organization based in Scottsdale, Arizona. We promote responsible dog ownership by educating the public in the selection, care, and training of dogs. Our dogs live in foster homes and private boarding accommodations around the valley (we don't have a shelter).

Our dogs are rehomed in the Phoenix, Arizona, metropolitan area only in homes with humans no younger than eight years of age. (Requirements vary by dog, some may need older humans in order to succeed.)

Our standard adoption fee is $400. For puppies six months and younger, the fee is collected when the Foster-To-Adopt period begins. For dogs older than six months, the fee is collected when the Adoption is finalized.

We strive for lifetime matches. Our mission is to place each dog into a loving, forever home that is suited to the dog's particular needs - as described in their individual profiles.

Our methodical, deliberate approach places the best interest of the dog above all else. New dogs are often posted on our website as sponsorship-only, which allows previous BDR adopters, donors, and fans of our rescue to "favorite" a dog and follow its progress. 

We encourage you to register on our site and "Favorite" dogs that interest you, so that you'll be notified when bio, photos, or status are updated.

Fosters play a critical role in our ability to save dogs.
If you can foster overnight or longer, please complete our online Foster Application!

Volunteers are an integral part of our rescue!
