Rescue A New Family Member From CAAR

By Central Arizona Animal Rescue

About Central Arizona Animal Rescue

Central Arizona Animal Rescue serves the community by rescuing, caring for, rehabilitating and placing rescued animals with new owners that would otherwise be euthanized. We spay or neuter all animals that are adopted, ending the cycle of additional unwanted animals. We also promote yearly vaccinations of all animals which prevents disease and the possible destruction of sick animals.

WE DO NOT TAKE OWNER SURRENDERS – If you are looking to surrender a dog, take them to the county animal control in the county you reside in. That is where we get all of our dogs we are trying to save.

We adopt on a first come first served basis by appointment only. We will not hold a dog for an appointment for more then 48 hours.

My name is Gunny!

I am an adult male German Shepherd that is neutered.

All we know about Gunny’s background is that he was turned into the pound by his owner. We don’t even know what his real name is, so we gave him the name Gunny. Gunny is high energy and loves to play ball. He is more shepherd then most people can handle so he needs somebody who has shepherd experience and the ability to keep him busy both physically and mentally. He knows some commands like sit, down, stay and may know more but we just haven’t had the time to work with him to figure it out. He is already neutered and suppose to have a current rabies shot but we don’t have the paperwork to prove it. We will have to get him a new shot and get him micro-chipped still.


My name is Mindy!

I am a young female Labrador Retriever mix. I am spayed, and great with other dogs, cats, and kids.

Mindy was picked up as a stray with a litter mate so we don’t have any background information on her. The pound had her as a lab but she is a mix. Mindy is really sweet and friendly. She gets along great with the other puppies she shares her kennel with. She going to be an awesome member to somebody’s family. She is already fixed, current on her vaccinations and micro-chipped. She is ready to go to her new home right now!

When she is fully grown we are expecting her to be somewhere in the 60 pound range.

My name is Thor!

I am a young male Pointer/Australian Cattle Dog mix that is neutered and great with other dogs.

Thor was picked up as a stray with his brother. They were both kinda scared at first but his brother turn around and was really happy with people on a short time and he was adopted. Thor on the other hand is still nervous around people. He is great with other dogs so he will do best in a home with another dog as a companion while he learns that people are not to be nervous about. Thor is already fixed, current on his vaccinations and has been micro-chipped so he is ready to go to his new home now.


You can visit these dogs and many more at our up-coming adoption event.
