It’s All about the Dogs

Tucson Rescue Now is dedicated to adopting Senior Dogs into happy and loving homes. We bring senior dogs from local shelters to our adoption site at the La Encantada shopping center.

We are different.
Our dogs are not in kennels, they are in large playpens with couches. They can relax and be their normal, at-home selves. They get love, attention, treats, and sometimes massages. They go on walks around the mall to meet folks, and they sometimes sit on a couch just outside our front door to soak in some Tucson sun.

We are independent.
Our dogs are from local shelters but we do not receive financial support from shelters or animal welfare organizations.

We are community-driven.
Small and large donations from visitors and sponsors keep our doors open. We are a 501c3 nonprofit organization, so your donations may be tax-deductible. Our community of passionate volunteers keeps the big wheel turnin’.

We are dog-people.
If you are too, please visit us! You will meet some cool, very sweet, sometimes spoiled, senior dogs looking for their next home. Our environment is fun and positive for both dogs and visitors. You will not feel sad here, you will feel uplifted. If you like what we are doing, you can help by making a donation at the store.

You Did It!!!

Thank you all so much for helping us to get the TRN van back on the road. We couldn’t have done it without all your kind donations. Now John will be able to do his daily runs to pick up all the beautiful dogs for TRN. A special mention for one large donation made in loving memory of a beloved pet, Klauss. Thanks to you all for helping us to continue getting senior dogs adopted.
