Finding Fido is a non-profit rescue group dedicated to reducing euthanasia of adoptable animals in shelters. Our hearts go out for the seniors and special needs animals, as they are often overlooked and are the first ones to be euthanized. We do not have a shelter--all of our animals live in foster homes with families--we are able to observe these animals on a daily basis--we know their personalities, we know their likes and dislikes, and most important, we know what type of home environment will be best for them. If you are interested in fostering please feel free to contact us. We can only continue to save lives with the generosity of our wonderful foster parents.
Our adoption process is as follows:
1. completion of a questionnaire
2. meeting the pet
Adoptions are held every weekend at the Petsmart located at the NE corner of Tatum & Shea. We are at Petsmart on Fridays from 10 - 2, Saturdays from 10 to 5 and Sundays from 11 to 4
A frequent question we get is, where do our animals come from?
The majority of our animals come directly off the euthanasia lists of shelters in Maricopa County, due to their age, health, or behavior. We are incredibly dedicated to these animals as the majority of them would no longer be alive without us today. We take in a huge range of "e-list" animals, everything from kittens or puppies who are too young to be adopted out, behavioral cases in which case the animal is fearful in the pound (we really don't blame them for being scared there!), to mild up to extremely severe medical cases. We rely on heavily on donations and our wonderful volunteers to be able to continue doing this.
Why microchip? A microchip is the size of a grain of rice implanted via a simple shot between the shoulder blades. Many pets who were wearing tags when lost are NOT wearing them when turned into the shelters. A chip is proof positive that your animal belongs to YOU. You are given a passcode, so the information on the chip may only be changed by you.
Thank you for considering a rescued pet.
