About Us

Adopting A Friend

Our adoption process if simple.  It begins with your identifying a pet of interest in our organization.  Next, contact us by email at tenderpawsrescue@gmail.com with the name of the pet you are interested in and a phone number.  We will, as quickly as possible, reply and supply an application for your completion.  We will also return phone calls when possible.  Once the application is completed and returned we will review it for a match to the dog.  When a match is found, we will call to answer further questions and arrange a meet and greet.  A home visit is required before the adoption process is closed.  Once all steps of the process are completed, an adoption contract is signed, documents are transfered, tags and license are transferred, and the pet joins you and your family.

We are a very small organization with a small group of volunteers.  All of us are busy with family and regular jobs in addition to assisting animals in need.  We do understand and appreciate you enthusiasm at finding a new family member.  Please unstand as we ask you to be patient with us as we get back to you.  When we are not replying to requests about pets we are working, taking are of our families, caring for our pets, introducing pets to potential homes,  etc.

Who We Are

TLC For Pets As They Find A Forever Home!

Tender Paws Pet Rescue seeks to provide loving care, enrichment, essential medical care, and behavioral retraining for pets seeking new homes.  We are asked to help pets being surrendered by owners, estates of former owners, pets that have been abandoned, and those who have been listed for euthanasia on local animal shelter lists.

We are new, operate in the Phoenix, AZ area, and are developing our volunteer and foster network.

All  pets receive veterinary care.  At a minimum all pets are given a full set of shots, microchip, and are either spayed or neutered.  Additional veterinary care as is appropriate is provided.  In some instances a pet may be with us as long as a year if necessary to tend to issues such as valley fever, surgical needs and physical rehab, or behavioral retraining and socialization.

All Pet Adoption Donation Fees reflect the care of the pets under the attention of Tender Paws Pet Rescue.  These fees are not a purchase price. We do not sell animals.  We adopt pets in loving homes. Our adoption donation fees vary based on many factors and range from $65.00  up. Our fee is not reflective of the medical or training costs associated to anyone dog.  We often have spent hundreds or thousands of dollars healing a pet in preparation of sending it to a forever home.  Any care expenses our adoption donation fees do not cover we seek to cover with donations and fundraising.
