Rehabbing & Advocating for Dogs

RAD is a volunteer dog rescue group in Tucson, AZ. Founded in 2016, RAD is deeply committed to saving, healing and finding forever homes for the most challenged pooches who would otherwise be swallowed up in the shelter environment. We work primarily with senior dogs, with dogs suffering from severe medical or behavioral issues, and with dogs requiring hospice care.

Our dogs go into the warm environment of foster homes until they find their forever homes, and we provide them with support, medical care, and training.

RAD is a 501(c)(3) organization.

Haven of Hopeful Hounds

Read all about the heroic efforts of RAD Rescue and a whole group of volunteer angels who have been working for months to create the Haven of Hopeful Hounds. This is a sanctuary where a collection of dogs from a large hoarding case who had no socialization, training, or human interaction can live and interact and work with people. It is truly the definition of a labor of love.
