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.


RAD Rescue is a Tucson-based dog rescue. 
We currently do not adopt dogs out of the state of Arizona.



Meet Hercules! Hercules is an approximately one-year-old Husky who is the truest form of his breed. He is goofy, energetic, mischievous, and too smart for his own good.

Hercules would do best in a home with no small animals (including cats and dogs). He also must be monitored on a leash while he is outdoors (including in an enclosed yard).

Hercules would do best to go with one of his pack mates (maybe Astra), but could also adapt to a home with another dog who matched his energy and play style as long as the adopter gave an appropriate adjustment period.

Hercules adoption fee is: $125 and that includes neuter, microchip, vaccines and full support during an accommodation period including the use of a GPS collar.

If you adopt Hercules with one of his pack mates, a bonded adoption fee will apply or $150 for both dogs.

If you’re interested in meeting Gertie, please submit an application.



Greta is a four-year-old Husky who originally came from a hoarding case. She is timid with new people, but bonds to her “person” fairly quickly.
Greta loves food, walks well on a leash, rides well in the car, and does well in a crate (strongly recommend using an empire or heavy duty brand at first).
Greta likes other dogs, but would do best in a home without smaller animals, children, or lots of people traffic.
Greta’s ideal home would give her time to accommodate to her new surroundings, especially monitoring her outdoor on a leash for the first six weeks. New environments scare her, and she’s likely to attempt to escape at first. She can easily jump an eight-foot wall, so all potty breaks should be on leash (even in an enclosed yard).
Greta has a ton of potential to be someone’s new best friend with a little patience and consistency.
If you’re interested in meeting Greta, please submit an application.

Axel is looking for a forever or new foster home. He is 10 year old Husky with valley fever that is being maintained by a pill wrapped in lunch meat twice a day.

Axel is originally from a hoarding case, but has accommodated well to home life. He is not the most affectionate, in true Husky fashion, but he is very endearing and sweet. He loves to carry around his toys, dip his feet in his pool, and take long naps on beds.

He does well in a crate, loves dinner time, and gets along with most dogs and cats. He strongly prefers dogs that stay out of his face, but overall he is pretty tolerant.

Axel's ideal home is one with older children who respect his space, a patient person who will understand his past, and someone who will let him take all the naps he wants.

If you’re interested in fostering or adopting Axel, please submit an application or reach out to us directly.

Meet Dash! He is a four-year-old, 69lb puppy. His foster mom says he is a good boy in the house who can be left alone in a room or house without doing anything naughty as long as he has some toys and tunes. He has crate experience but would rather be on the sofa or floor. He has not met a person he hasn’t liked and he’s an excellent lunch buddy when it’s not 110 degrees out. He does need daily exercise to keep him fit and mentally happy, but he walks fabulously on a leash and even loves to take some slower runs.

Dash does well with other dogs when he can be introduced slowly. He’s a perfect gentleman who shares his treats and toys with his foster sister. Dash has been around some cats and horses but would need some supervision and an intro. He needs a secure yard and supervision outside (at least to start).

Dash is learning fun training stuff like learning about place, touch, sit/down/shake, settle, stay, leave it and impulse control. His foster mom calls him a star student!

If you would like to meet Dash, please submit an application

Zodiac is a four-year-old Husky mix who has come a long way and has the potential to be a great dog. Zodiac prefers dog friends that respect her space, but we don't know how she is with cats.

Zodiac rides well in a car, is respectful in the house and can be trusted alone. She is a great hiking buddy and extremely playful when she gets to know you.

Zodiac's ideal home would have only older children that fully respect her space, dogs that are polite and stay out of her face, and a human who will monitor her outside time (she has hopped the wall in the past, but has made no attempts at her human's house as long as she is monitored out doors).

Zodiac is available for foster or adoption. To meet Zodiac, please fill out an application

Hi, I’m Leo! I’m a 1.5 year old large Australian Shepard mix. I know sit, down, shake, stay, crate, place, and leave it. I walk well on the leash and am cat and dog friendly (intro required though). I am kind of shy at first but once I feel comfortable with you, expect tons of kisses! Given that food, chews, and balls are my favorites, I think they’re mine and don’t like them being taken away. My foster mom is going to be working on this with me. Since I’m so food and treat motivated, she believes I will learn to share and give things up.

I would do best in an adult-only home that can provide structure to my life. They would have to understand that given my breed, I need to work for everything I get. Otherwise I find other outlets to let out my energy. If you believe that we are a match made in heaven, please submit an application through RAD Rescue!

Adoption fee: $125

Odin is a 4 year old neutered, male Pit mix. This chunky monkey is a silky-eared love bully. He's looking for his love connection - his forever companion. He just wants to be with you and he's into whatever you're into. He's house-broken, crate-trained and obedient. He knows sit, stay, come, heel, get your ball, where's your ball, bring me your ball, and go to bed. (Bonus - he's learning all the commands in Spanish, tambien.)

He needs some time and care to warm up to new people, especially men, but once he trusts you, you have a friend and companion for life. Mostly, he just wants to goof off and cuddle, and be your best friend. Odin previously lived with cats and other dogs, but a meet-and-greet is always required. He also does exceptionally well with kids.

Adoption Fee: $125



Clara - Looking for a new foster

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
