RESCUE is a registered non-profit volunteer based animal rescue organization located in Maricopa County. Unlike
organizations such as the Arizona Humane Society or Animal Care and Control, RESCUE has no central facility
and is volunteer run. Our focus is euthanasia list rescue from our county shelters. We were founded in 1995, and
with the support of our volunteers and our community, we have found homes for over 8,800 dogs and cats.
Our motto is for every animal adopted, we are back to rescue another. Maricopa County has one of the highest
euthanasia rates per capital in the country, so we have much work to do on behalf of these animals. We depend
on the community for our support and offer a variety of satisfying ways for you to get involved in our mission to
end euthanasia. For example, you can become volunteer, adopt or donate. For more information about RESCUE
and our programs, please visit us on-line at www.azrescue.org.
Our vision is to elevate the status of animals in society through facilitating a culture change in how people acquire animals and how they commit to those animals they choose to make a part of their family.
