IF YOU'RE READING THIS we're still accepting  pplications for Jack.

PLEASE visit our site to read details.

We are all volunteers and use an application protocol to handle all inquiries about dogs. This system enables an efficiency that allows us to save and care for more dogs. Discussion about a dog - including scheduling of a home check or other dialogue - cannot occur until we have received your completed  adoption application .

NO EXCEPTIONS.  Thank you!

**Jack will be placed in the Phoenix metro area,

for proximity to our rescue (home checks, follow up visits, visit to finalize adoption)

and for access to our veterinarian and trainer. Sorry, no exceptions.


Adoption of Jack begins with a Foster-To-Adopt arrangement that continues until

Basic Training and Intermediate (or Canine Good Citizen) training are completed.

Training will begin on the timeline set by the rescue; once complete, the adoption can be finalized.


Jack needs a fun, friendly, similar-size female dog friend in his new home. (Preference will be given to applicants with at least one active, healthy large dog.) He loves snacks and chasing the tennis ball. Like his siblings Westley and Cindy, Jack came from a situation of far too many dogs and not enough resources or attention. Our volunteers are working with Jack to help him adjust to individual attention. 
Jack needs adult humans who are home most of the time. (Preference will be given to applicants who work from home or who are amenable to using doggie daycare to engage Jack’s active dog brain and body.) Jack will find young kids too unpredictable, so children aged 15 and older, please. 
While Jack is being thoroughly vetted, we’ll update his profile with more details. Once available, Jack's name will appear on the pull down menu on our online adoption application and we’ll begin searching for his new home.
  • "Companion animal" means, needs at least one other friendly, playful dog that lives in the same household.
  • "Fenced yard" means, a backyard that is adjacent to and connected with your residence. (It does not mean a nearby fenced area/dog park.)
  • Gates must have padlocks and thresholds (cement or buried pavers to prevent digging.)
  • Yard and patio must be free of debris and have room for dogs to run and play on a lawn and/or a very shaded area.
  • We do not place dogs in situations where there are "drained" or empty swimming pools, which are a fall hazard and contribute to the propogation of mosquitos.
  • We DO NOT adopt to students as we have found that they often do not know or anticipate where life is taking them next.
