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.



Prancer is a sweet senior lady looking for a wonderful retirement home. She is leash trained, house broken, gentle with treats and well behaved when left unattended in the house during the day. Prancer only has 3 legs, but she gets around just fine - slow and steady wins the race.

Adoption Fee: Sweet Senior $95




Bambi is a 4 month old, spayed mixed breed female (Black Mouth Cur/Shepherd mix). Bambi is a spunky and sassy playful girl who is already crate trained and working on her house breaking. She is playful and submissive with other dogs.

Riley - Adoption Pending

Hello Friends! I’m Riley, I'm about 2 years 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 I'm gaining more confidence. 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 also get along with other dogs, cats unknown. I’ll be patiently waiting for my forever person!

Ronaldo is a neutered 2 year old male Boston Terrier/Chihuahua mix who came to RAD Rescue by way of a previous adopter. This adorable and extremely friendly little guy is good with other dogs as well as kids (cats unknown) and looking for a forever home.

Ronaldo is house broken and knows how to use the doggy door. He's microchipped and up to date on all his shots.

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




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.




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.

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.
