Pupdates Hot Off The Press: July 13, 2015

Meet the PUPPIES!!! (DOB 5/5/15)









Featured Pet: Shadow

Meet darling Shadow

Shadow is the perfect little dog. She is 7 years old and 12lbs, perfect for long snuggle sessions. She is quiet, mellow and just plain sweet. She is potty trained and her favorite exercise is chasing her tail after meal time. Shadow gets along with every person and dog, but she would prefer to be in a quiet home and wouldn’t mind being an only dog. She walks great on a leash, but you will find that it’s hard to put this little bundle of love down. Her snuggles are addictive.

The adoption fee of $175 helps with medical expenses incurred by the Rescue.

If you want to meet him, please fill out an on-line application at and we will contact you so that you can meet this darling girl.

Education: Walking on Sunshine

We all know it’s super hot outside, but did you know it’s only safe to walk your dog during certain times during the day during the summer?

The ground gets very hot quickly after the sun rises. The ground gets so hot, that it can and will burn your dogs feet. We recommend morning walks be completed by 8am and evening walks started no earlier than 7pm. This will not only protect your dogs feet, but also help to prevent heatstroke.

If you are interested in burning some calories with our dogs, we do group walks on Monday’s and Thursday’s at 7pm at 23rd Ave and Peoria. We provide leashes and potty bags, you just need to bring water and comfortable shoes. These walks are always in a group setting with at least one HADS volunteer. Contact Mary if you are interested 602-568-5219.
