Who We Are

AZ Prussian Snailhound Dog Rescue is a 501c3 non-profit corporation that is committed to providing rescue and safehaven for dogs in need. Most of the dogs we rescue are of mixed breeds. We have decided that the term "mutt" doesn't do justice for these beautiful dogs, so we have given them a more exotic and interesting description as "Prussian Snailhounds". There is no better way to start a conversation than to tell someone you have a Prussian Snailhound! Each Prussian Snailhound is unique and deserves a loving home! Please open your heart and your home to a rescue dog!

What We Do

Our major focus is the rescue of stray dogs from the Ft. McDowell Indian Reservation. Since July 2009 we have worked with other groups to rescue over 600 dogs and puppies. These are amazingly sweet dogs that have had to live off of the land and brave extreme heat, cold, rain, drought, coyotes, rattlesnakes, hunger, traffic and people who try to harm them. They deserve to have a proper home. This started out as a mission to save about 30 dogs who hung out behind the casino, as the casino managers saw them as a nuisance and were threatening to poison or shoot the dogs. We ended up saving way more dogs as we became aware that the problem extended far beyond the casino. Some of the adult dogs are extremely fearful of humans at first and require extensive rehabilitation in order to learn how to trust and become a member of the family. Once they realize how good home life is, they will be your best friend for life!

In addition to the rescue and rehabilitation of dogs from the Ft. McDowell Indian Reservation, it is our goal to work closely with the tribe to educate people who live on the Reservation about spay/neuter and to facilitate a low cost spay/neuter program. Every year since January 2011, the owners of over 50 companion animals living on the Reservation now take advantage of free spay/neuter clinics.

Making a Donation

All montary donations are tax deductible! 100% of all donations goes directly to providing medical treatment (including spay/neuter) for rescued animals. AZ Prussian Snailhound Dog Rescue is a volunteer based organization. There are no salaries paid or outrageous overheads.
