meet our goldens

"Rescue dogs aren't broken, they've simply experienced more life than other dogs.  If they were human, we would call them wise.  They would be the ones with tales to tell and stories to write, the ones dealt a bad hand who responded with courage.  Don't pity a rescue dog. Adopt One. And be proud to have their greatness by your side."

If you are interested in meeting one of our goldens, there are a few things you need to do first.

1.  Fill out an application online or download an application today.  
2.  Email Adoptions (adoptions@azgrc.org) to contact our adoptions coordinator about your interest in one of our Goldens.

  TOBY   4 Year Male   Available  Contact #04-15
toby toby toby  

Toby is a handsome 4 year old neutered male who is looking for the perfect forever home. Toby is very active and loves to go jogging and on long walks and will fetch a tennis ball for hours.  He also gets along well with other dogs. Toby was turned into AZGRC because of his separation anxiety and will do best in a home where someone is around most of the time. Toby needs a family that understands dogs with anxiety issues and has the time and patience to work with him and help Toby rebuild his self confidence. Although Toby is active and likes to play, he also settles down and enjoys just being close to you. He is very good about knowing what toys are his and will help himself to the toy basket and entertain himself.  Toby does well with other dogs and wants to get along with everyone.  Toby would enjoy kids twelve years and older who can help burn off some energy, but would not do well with smaller children. Toby knows basic commands, is completely housebroken and absolutely loves riding in the car. He has no interest in swimming and does not plan to ever be a "water dog".

If you think you might have the right home for Toby and would be interested in making him part of your family, please submit an application at www.azgrc.org  and someone from our Adoption Team will follow up with you with additional information.

  max  10 Year Male  Medical Hold  Contact #26-14

max - medical holdHi, my name is Max and I am a young 10-year old.  I love my toys and am a very affectionate boy.  I have kind of been on the road a bit. I landed in the Arizona Humane Society because, while I was lost, my owner got another dog that they liked better.  My ears were really infected so I was deemed unadoptable.  Well, since AZGRC rescued me, my ears are cleared up and I am very healthy and simply have an upcoming dental left to do.

I am a GREAT car rider and love going for walks.  Sometimes I get bored and am very attracted to TV remotes, but have been told that this is a no-no.  I listen very well and love to be right next to you.  In fact, I can even fit on your lap!  A home with some structure and organization works best for me.  I will be so grateful for a forever home and will be the best companion you have ever had.
