It's a heartbreaking scene that's all too common in these tough economic times. A family is forced to decide between their beloved dogs and putting a roof over their children's heads. 

The results are overcrowded shelters, traumatized animals and traumatized people. Those of us in rescue often make matters worse by labeling anyone who is forced to give up a pet as unkind, heartless, or evil. 

What if we could prevent a pet from ever going to a kill shelter in the first place? 

The Tucson Rescue Pack is dedicated to the idea that the best place for any dog is with his pack. We want to keep dogs and their people together, happy, and stable.

We accomplish this goal in several ways: 

  • When possible we help families cope with behavioral issues that may lead to a dog being surrendered.
  • We provide support, information, encouragement and education free of charge. 
  • We help families locate and obtain low cost services for their dog in the community.
  • We open our homes to animals in crisis during emergencies.
  • We provide adoption and fostering services for dogs who must be re-homed because their owners can no longer care for them. 

Our goal is to limit the number of dogs traumatized by being surrendered.  That's where we need your help! Providing services for needy dogs can get expensive. 

Consider this: An elderly person has an elderly dog. The owner dies. Too often the elderly dog may be put down or given up to a shelter because there is simply no one to care for it. In that case, we would take the dog into foster care. Perhaps it will be a "forever foster" because the dog is too old to be adopted. The care and feeding of that dog costs our group money. 

Your donation underwrites those costs and helps a great family pet live out his or her days in love and comfort!

Do your part, to help slow the population growth of our shelters and support the Pack concept of dog well-being! Donate today!
