Would you like to sponsor our foster dogs' food? Each bin feeds one foster dog for two weeks. Sponsoring a foster dog's food helps us save more dogs! You can choose to sponsor food as often as you wish! Our foster dogs greatly appreciate your generosity!!
Would you like to help keep dogs from being given up by their owners? When an owner falls on hard times and has difficulty providing for his pets, we step in and provide resources to help. You can help by donating specifically to this cause. We provide resources such as dog food, vet care, flea/tick preventatives, and training support so that dogs can stay with their owners. Many times, this is all it takes to keep a dog with his family, and out of the shelter. Your donation is 100% tax deductible. Will you help keep dogs out of the shelter, and with their families?
Your donations have helped hundreds of very needy dogs at Phoenix Animal Rescue.
Your donations helped save Miles!
We took in Miles from the Levy County Shelter on May 23, 2013. He had wandered away from his owner's home and entered the kitchen of a neighbor. He laid down and was unable to get up, so the homeowner called the shelter to pick him up. They believed he was dying because he was unable to move on his own. Miles was immediately transported to West End Animal Hospital for emergency care. He has been treated for sarcoptic mange, advanced heartworms, intestinal parasites, and complications due to starvation. MILES IS NOW AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION!!
Your donations helped save Sterling!
Sterling was rescued August 2012
Sterling was found as a stray in August 2012. He weighed under 30 pounds and was hours from dying of starvation. Your donations paid for him to have emergency surgery to remove a blockage from his stomach. He had been eating debris in an attempt to stay alive but the debris had lodged in his intestines. Once he had surgery to remove the blockage, Sterling went to a foster home to gain weight. Your donations paid for all of his nutritious, high-calorie food. Sterling gained weight, closely monitored by the vets at West End Animal Hospital. He moved to a foster home with Tina Bassi, who took him to training classes at Dream Dogz Training Center. Tina and her family decided to keep Sterling, and helped him earn his AKC Canine Good Citizen Title. At the time of Sterling's adoption, he weighed 65 pounds, over double his weight at intake. Your donations paid for his care and rehabilitation. Thank you!!
Invoices for each of the dogs in our care are available upon request. We are always happy to share with our donors where your donations go. 100% of your donations go towards the care of our rescued dogs and puppies.
Sterling was adopted December 2012
Your donations helped save Homer!
Homer is from the Levy County Shelter
Homer was dropped off at the Levy County Shelter in Bronson in October 2012. He sat in his concrete kennel, terrified, unable to move or eat, for 11 days while volunteers worked to find a place for him to go. Homer would snarl, growl, and urinate on himself when anyone attempted to touch him in his kennel. When Phoenix Animal Rescue was sent his photo, we asked our vets at West End Animal Hospital for help in rescuing Homer. He was sedated, transported out of the shelter on a stretcher, and taken to the vet for his exam and vaccinations. When he woke up, Homer was at his foster home. As soon as he realized he was inside a home, Homer was a different dog. He was no longer terrified, and made himself cozy on the couch. Homer met dog friends and played with everyone he met. After a few months of emotional rehabilitation in his foster home, Homer moved to a new foster home in the city to learn more about being brave. There, we discovered that Homer likes to go on long hikes. However, his one front leg can't support his weight well enough for him to go on long hikes without hurting himself. Your donations paid for a front-end cart for Homer so that can enjoy long hikes. Homer is available for adoption and is hoping to find a home where he can go on long hikes in his cart. Homer's two most favorite things to do are splash in the water on hikes, and go on car rides, especially if that means he is headed to a trail to go hiking.
