Our Friends

These guys are not RAD dogs but they meet all the criteria that RAD uses when looking at dogs who need our help. And besides, they're really cool dogs and they need forever homes. So we're thrilled to be able to show them off. Let us know if you'd like to meet one of them, and we'll direct you to the right people to make that happen.



Sweet Arabella is a 5-year-old spayed, female Pit mix who has been in foster care since the beginning of 2013 when she gave birth to 8 beautiful babies. The puppies grew and were quickly adopted, but
Arabella doesn't socialize well with other dogs and needs consistency, structure, and a no-other dog, cat, small animal home. She has gone through and passed a Canine Good Citizen training course. Arabella has blossomed into a phenomenal companion while in foster care. She is crate trained and house trained and she loves to get out and see the world. Arabella would like an active family to play fetch with, go on regular walks, and remind her what a wonderful dog she is. She can be a little over-zealous sometimes, so she would do best with older children (8-10 yrs). She does love to to hang out on the couch and veg but it's rock and roll time at the first sign of play! If you are interested in meeting Arabella, a vet reference and home check will be required.

Adoption Fee: $50



Look at that face! Seriously.

Meet Zorro! This guy has it all. He is athletic, intelligent and handsome! He has the youth to keep him going and the age to make him wise enough to settle down. He is a five-year-old Black Lab mix and has recently gone through training to help with separation anxiety. He was recently diagnosed with valley fever and is currently on meds for it; he does not let this stop him from being active.

Zorro would enjoy a home that will keep him mentally stimulated by actively using the obedience training he's received along with mild physical activity. He is house trained, crate trained and obedience trained. He gets along very well with other dogs and children. If you think that you have what it takes to give him a proper home, let us know! We are eager to see this boy in a wonderful forever home.

Adoption fee: $125




Butch is a vibrant, young, neutered male American Pit Bull Terrier mix. He is about 4-5 yrs old and weighs about 50 lbs. Butch is in need of a new forever family since his mom passed away. He is fantastic with children and he is obedience-trained. He knows the commands: touch, sit, down, come and place. Butch is great with other dogs, but if going to a home with other dogs, we do require a meet and greet to ensure success. Butch needs a home with NO cats or small animals please.
If you are interested in meeting Butch, please complete an adoption application or call 520-260-6936.



Rocky is a four-year-old nuetered male Pit mix (approximately 50lbs). He's microchipped and up to date on vaccines. He's housebroken, crate trained and walks well on the leash with a confident handler.
Rocky was saved from euthanasia at the shelter over 2 years ago.  Rocky's perfect home would include: training experience or resources to continue on-going training, bully breed experience as Rocky is thru and thru a pit bull with a stubborn side (but also a great love side too), and a secure yard (he loves to be outside, though shouldn't sun bathe anymore due to a recent growth removal on his belly which was cancer but removed successfully). Older, respectful kids are best for him. Rocky is used to being indoors and should be when his people are not home. A home where he is the only dog wouldn't be the worst thing for him. Rocky is Canine Good Citizen certified and has had many training sessions with JD's Powerhouse K9 Bootcamp.

Missy is a five-year-old beautiful blue Pitbull mix who came to RAD by way of her foster mom. Missy is one of the reasons that we are so passionate about seniors and hospice fostering. Missy was scheduled to be euthanized at the shelter due to her Valley Fever and the effect it was having on her day-to-day life. She stumbled and fell, she had/has seizures on a fairly regular basis and she sleeps ... A LOT!! But there is one thing that Missy is not lacking and that is a whole lotta LOVE. Missy is the happiest girl on the planet and despite her daily struggles, she continues to push through and bring light, love and laughter to her family.
