Special Needs

This poor little girl and her 6 surviving pups were hospitalized after she gave birth to 12 puppies tied up in an abandoned trailer yard. When she was found she had 7 of the 12 pups still alive. Mom was so dehydrated she couldn't produce milk to feed her pups. Which is why we believe the others died. One more pup died on the way to the vet. The 6 pups are now nursing because after recieving fluids, mom is producing enough milk to settle in and feed them. We are in need of donations for their vet care, donations of hospital blankets and sheets, and soon we will need fosters for pups until they are ready for adoption. Donations for vet bills can be made directly to Power Rd Animal Hospital at 480-641-4141 or thru our donation page at: www.valleyofthesundogrescue.com on the "How you can Help" page. If you are interested in fostering any of these sweet babies please contact Kathy at 480-228-0126 or swaney21586@yahoo.com.

This little family is doing great!!

Special Need

Our Mission Statement

Our mission is to rescue abandoned, injured or abused dogs, rehabilitate them, have them vaccinated, spayed or neutered and help them find their forever home. We also strive to increase public awareness about the gentler, humane side of a "Bully" breed.

Our Adoption Process

We hold adoption clinics weekly at various PetSmart pet centers in the area. Although we specialize in American Pitbull and American Staffordshire Terriers, all dog breeds in need are accepted with open arms, evaluated and treated as necessary and adopted to private homes. Our prospective adopters are required to fill out an in depth adoption contract, submit to home checks for a period of one year, as well as pay an adoption fee for the animal. Additionally, there are monetary penalties that must be agreed to for any mistreatment of the adopted animal. We also reserve the right to reclaim the animal in the event of mistreatment. Further, we reserve the right to pursue any individuals for mistreatment or neglect of the adopted animal through the court system or law enforcement agencies. All of the above must be read, initialed and the entire document signed prior to any adoption. We also have additional and specific requirements of the prospective adopters and their families to adopt a “bully” breed that must be met.
