We dont always bring all animals to our adoption events so check ahead of time to make sure the animal you are interested in is still available. Some animals listed may already be promised.

Arizona Desert Rotti & Pals Rescue is a NO KILL rescue serving Tucson and the surrounding area. 

We do adopt out of area under the right circumstances. If you are willing to travel to Tucson to meet us, and to personally transport your adopted pet home, we may be willing to work with you. 

A home visit is usually required for the safety of our animals. We check the yard to make sure this little pup cannot escape, no predator can get in, and also look for hazardous plants. 

We do not adopt our dogs out unless you have a secured, fenced yard, it’s a requirement for the safety of the dog. At the end of the application, please include the type of fencing and the height of the fence you have around your yard. 

If youre interested in Sonoma or any of our dogs, please fill out a pre application at:
Once you have filled out the pre-adoption application, someone will contact you about the dog to answer your questions and tell you where our Sunday adoption event is held.

Our dogs are bathed, dewormed, vet checked, given their required shots, spayed or neutered, and microchipped. 

Our rescues are homed with foster parents. They are fostered in homes so that we can tell you a little bit about their personalities, feeding schedule, habits, behavior, whether they get along with other dogs. We can tell you if they are crate trained, if they are leash trained and house trained. Most dogs need a refresher course on potty training when they go to a new home. They need to learn your routine, and it will be up to you to teach them. 

Even the most abused animals can be wonderful pets. It takes patience, love and good food, along with fun and commitment to the animal. Fosters work with these animals. They are a part of our families, while we are lucky enough to have them.
