RAD Dogs

So you have decided on a “RAD” dog. Please complete our adoption application to begin the process.

- Once you have completed the adoption application, we will be in contact with you to determine if the dog you have selected fits your home/lifestyle as well as to discuss previous pet experience.

-We will contact your veterinarian (if applicable) to ensure current pets are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and routinely cared for.

-If you rent your home, we do require to check with your landlord to ensure dogs are permitted and that there are no size or breed restrictions that will hinder your application.

-We also conduct a yard check. This includes coming to your home to see the environment where the dog will live and ensure the utmost safety. The yard check is typically when you will begin your trial adoption after completing your adoption agreement. We allot 7 days for the dog to live with you in your home; giving you both time to adjust to having a new pet as well as ensuring you have made the right decision.

-Your adoption fee (see fees below) will be held until the 7th day at which point we will finalize the adoption, transfer the county license to your name/address and send all copies of applicable medical records to you, the new owner.

Our adoption fees are:

-Puppies (6 months and under): $250* (*This includes the adoption fee as well as a 6 week Puppy Obedience Class in Tucson to help you and your puppy bond through obedience and ensure everyone is set up for success.)

-Seniors (7 years and older): $95

-Adults (7 months - 7 years): $125

Our adoption fees include spay or neuter of your new pet, a microchip, and current vaccinations applicable to the age of the dog you are adopting.

z-Daffy2

Daffy

Daffy is a five-year-old American Bulldog mix who weighs approximately 70 lbs. Daffy likes back scratches and cuddles, slobbery kisses and tug toys. He gets along with like-size dogs, but prefers a home without little dogs or cats. Daffy lives up to his name quite well: he's your typical doofy, goofy, silly bulldog. He's clumsy and playful, he's a happy guy who will make a great addition to your family. We prefer Daffy go to a home without small children due to his size and graceless nature.

Adoption Fee: $125

Comes with private training with K9 Guidance to Inclusion with lifelong support.

Kai2

Kai

Kai is a beautiful young two-to-three-year-old, Tucson Brown mix - Pit mix male. He has a gentle spirit, despite what was clearly a rough and troubled life in his puppy years. Thanks to the wonderful decompression volunteers at Pima Animal Care Center and to his very patient and loving fosters, Kai is learning to trust again. Kai gets along well with other like-sized dogs and gains more confidence with other K9 friends. He loves romping in the yard; as he becomes more
comfortable with people, he will follow you around the house. He knows the squeak of the treat jar and he's gone thru obedience training
with our good friend Lindsay. We are looking for someone to love and respect Kai - he will never be a cuddly dog and should not be an only dog.

Adoption Fee: $125

z-Bluto2

Bluto

Bluto is our calm, independent, napping, sunbathing senior.

Bluto is a big fella (tipping the scales at just over 100lbs) but he is working on some slow walks and trimming down. He is 8-to-9 years old, knows sit and walks well in heel, doesn’t pull and has been non-reactive to other dogs and cats on his walks. He is doing fine in a crate; however, he is so mellow he probably won’t need one and he hasn’t been destructive or stressed when left out of the crate alone.

Bluto is housebroken and enjoys car rides, but usually just naps thru them.

Because Bluto is a big guy and older, we prefer him to go to a home with older, dog-savvy kids and a couple or parent that is looking for a friendly couch potato versus a jogging/hiking partner.

Adoption fee: Sweet Senior $95.

Niners02

Niners

Niners is a beautiful blue 1 1/2-year-old neutered, male Pit mix who was pulled by RAD Rescue after he was surrendered following a multi-dog attack in his previous home. Niners was badly hurt but thanks to the amazing vets at VSCOT as well as the clinic staff at PACC, he's made an amazing recovery. Niners had to have his left ear flap removed and well as most of his right ear flap. Niners is considered a special-needs adoption due to his ears and will require a very special home committed to weekly ear cleanings.

Niners has COMPLETED basic obedience training with Tucson Dog Trainers and is looking for a forever home that will continue to work with him on obedience, He's an active pup who is looking for an active home - regular walks, occasional hikes, and lots of fun is what is on this guy's wish list. He comes with THREE FREE private lessons courtesy of Tucson Dog Trainers (Thank you Abe and team).

Adoption Fee: $125

z-Sweet Pea2

Sweet Pea

Sweet Pea is a 3-4 year old spayed, female Boxer/Pit mix who is as sweet as her name suggests. She is house-broken and crate-trained and gets along well with like-sized dogs as well as cats and children. Sweet Pea is diabetic and blind and will require a home committed to her on-going needs.

She enjoys going for car rides and walks very well on a leash. Sweet Pea comes with a six-month treat sponsorship from our friends at Dogabetix - Diabetic approved dog treats.

Adoption Fee: $125

Clara2

Clara

Clara is a young (2 year old) sweet, spayed female Pit mix who loves to cuddle and "smiles" when she is happy. She looks lovingly at you as she sits and waits for her treats. She is still working on co-existing with other dogs and will need either a confident pack leader to ensure successful integration or an only-dog home. She does not like being left in a crate while you are away, so a secure yard with a doggy door would be ideal. Clara is also currently undergoing obedience training,  and her adopters will receive training upon her transition to adoption as well. Clara needs a new foster while she waits to find her forever home.

Adoption Fee: $125

Harmony2

Harmony

Harmony is an eight-month-old old Lab/Pit mix spayed female. She is a shy little girl who came to us from Pima Animal Care Center. She lives with several small kids as well as other dogs and does well with all. She needs a home willing to give her time to adjust to her new
surroundings but once she bonds to you, it's for LIFE.

Adoption Fee: $125

z-Tobin2

Tobin

Tobin is a 2-3 yr old, neutered male small mixed breed (roughly 20lbs). Tobin came to RAD from the decompression Program at the shelter. He is nervous and shy but a gentle boy. He has lived with other dogs as well as cats, but is indifferent to both.

Due to his fearfulness, Tobin would do best in a quiet home without small children.

Adoption Fee: $125

z-Noggin2

Noggin

Noggin is a five-year-old, neutered male Stafordshire Terrier. He is a low-rider, snorting, snoring, piggy Pittie. Although he is compact in size, his personality is larger than life. Noggin lives with other dogs and does well with small children; however, if going to a home with other dogs, a meet-and-greet will be required. He loves to play in the water and his kiddie pool during the summer months. Noggin would prefer a couch-potato lifestyle next to a large fan to keep him cool and comfy. No cats!

Adoption Fee: $125

 

Missy2

Missy

Missy is our sweet, petite three-year-old Pit mix girl. She is crate trained, house broken and a complete love with people and kids. She needs a home with non-dominant dogs and absolutely no little dogs or cats. She does fine with dogs that give her space and are not "in your face" kind of dogs. She loves to play fetch, still working on "drop it," and rides quietly and contently in the car. Missy is looking for a foster home while she waits to find her forever home.

Adoption Fee: $125
