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
and we currently do not adopt dogs out of the state of Arizona.

Panoply of Puppies



Demi is an adorable two-year-old, female, spayed "pocket" pittie (roughly 30lbs). She was a volunteer favorite at PACC. She does well with other dogs but does not like change, so she will need an adopter prepared to give her time to adjust to her new surroundings and environment.

Adoption fee: $125



Bear & Tally

Bear is a five-year-old neutered male, Australian Shepard and Shepherd mix (65-75lbs), and Tally is his slightly older sister, a six-and-a-half-year-old spayed female, Rottweiler/husky mix (65-75lbs).This beautiful bonded pair is good with other animals, playful, active and SUPER affectionate and looking for a forever home TOGETHER! Both are fully up-to-date on shots and microchipped, housebroken and non-destructive when left alone in the home. They are past the puppy stage and looking for a home to spoil them rotten. Looking for a foster home for both or foster to adopt.

Adoption fee: $150 for the pair

Odin (currently in training with Tucson Off Leash) is a four-year-old, neutered, male tripod Pit mix looking for a foster or adopter. Odin is a happy boy but also very mellow and easy going. He would prefer to be an only dog, but with proper introductions, he can live with another dog.

Adoption Fee: $125




Daisy is a blind, senior, female poodle.




Petunia is an (approximately) 13-year-old English bulldog. She has some “wear and tear,” but is the happiest and goofiest girl you’ll ever meet. She is blind and has trouble getting around, but she will still find her way into a box or laundry basket if you leave one in her vicinity. Petunia is going to live the remainder of her golden years with her foster mom, until she decides it’s time to cross the rainbow bridge. Although Petunia is not adoptable, she really appreciates all your support and hopes you will consider some of her RAD Rescue friends.



Mama Odie - Adoption Pending

Bio coming.




Reeva is an 11-month old Pit/Great Pyrenes mix girl. She is already 60lbs and we expect that she will still grow some before she is done. Reeva does great with other dogs and loves children. She has a sweet and very nice disposition, she takes corrections well and is learning new things all the time. Some things are new and scary for her still as her start in life was with many brothers and sisters on a ranch setting, but she is learning to trust and coming along nicely.  Reeve is house broken and crate trained and she knows the command "sit."

Adoption Fee: $125




Nanny is a 12-year old spayed female PitBull/Greyhound mix who came to RAD Rescue in poor condition. She's made a full turn around and is doing great. Nanny has Valley Fever, but takes her meds like a champ if you don't mind making soft food meatballs for her daily.

Nanny lives with multiple cats and previously lived with small children and she does fine, but she needs to have a home with no other dogs. Nanny likes to live a mellow lifestyle with many naps incorporated into her day. A slow paced home with plenty a love and snuggles is her ideal match.

Sweet Senior Adoption Fee: $95



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


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


Missy - Looking for a new foster

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. Currently enrolled with Tucson Off-Leash Dog Trainers working on her behavior needs.

Adoption Fee: $125


09 Riley2


Hello Friends! I’m Riley, I'm about a year and a half old and the perfect size at 37lbs! I’m crate trained and house broken, and you can even leave me out of my crate up to 5 hours (I haven’t gone longer roaming the house without my foster mom but she’s pretty confident that I would be fine). I’m wary of strangers, though my foster mom is helping me gain more confidence. Since I’ve been with her, strangers are becoming less scary to me. It takes me a while to warm to people, but once I get to know you, man do I love to play! Rope toys, chew things, and anything I can thrash around are my favorites. I love to play fetch though I haven’t quite learned “drop it”. I’m pretty sure I could play for hours.

I know my basic commands (sit, down, stand, stay, come, leave it, look) and I’m working on mastering them. I’m super treat motivated and smart, so I’m sure I’ll be able to learn more commands from you! I would like my forever person to be active so I can keep busy by going on walks/runs, training classes, or having lots of play time! I’ll be patiently waiting for my forever person!
