We moved into our site at La Encantada in October 2019. Although we are new and just getting started, we have helped many senior dogs find homes. Here are some of our senior dogs with their new families. To learn about the dogs we adopted today, follow us on Facebook.


We thought you’d like to know as many of you have been following this handsome boy – DC got adopted. It wasn’t through TRN so we don’t get to add him to our list but fantastic news none the less. DC has been waiting a long time for his perfect people to find him and now it’s happened. Congratulations DC, we’re so happy for you.


Here it is, the picture we’ve all been waiting for. Here’s Envy snuggled up with her new Mom. This has been the best day. We’ve struggled to work out why no one chose this gorgeous dog day after day, week after week but of course it was just that we had to wait for the perfect match for such a special girl.This is our 187th adoption but perhaps more importantly it is our 6th adoption this week, which beats our previous record of five. And we’ve still got two more days to go!If you would like to help us continue this great work, please text

Whoever adopts this gorgeous girl is going to have a real treasure.This is Daisy and she is the sweetest girl, she’s 9yrs old but looks younger. She has had a very difficult life and really deserves a loving forever home. She was living with a women who was not mentally able to care for herself or her dog. She lived in a roach infested house with dried animal waste all over the floor, was not taken out regularly. And yet through all that she is such a sweet, gentle dog and ready to have a loving home where she will be spoiled and pampered…

Daisy’s going home â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸
Here she is with her new brother and her new Mom. What a wonderful piece of news to be able to share with you all. This lovely dog has had such a tough life so far but now she will be loved and cherished.
Our 175th adoption.


Look at Rocky’s face! He’s in love â¤ï¸â¤ï¸
Rocky got adopted today. This lady was looking for a sweet, loving companion and she found the perfect one. Congratulations Rocky, we know you are going to be so happy. That makes 180 adoptions – we’re on a roll!

Blake (Roger)-

When I did the post about sweet little Blake being adopted I mentioned that the person who adopted him had just had to have their dog put down. Now I have permission to tell the full story and although it starts out sad, we know it has a happy endingJohn’s brother had a 6 yr old Jack Russel (Amy) that started having seizures about three weeks ago, he took her to the vet to have her checked out. They gave him some medication to see if that would help but it didn’t. The seizures increased to the point that he took her to the Specialty Hospital to have an MRI, Spinal Tab and Blood test. They kept her for over a week for observation and after all that they still didn’t know what was wrong. On Tuesday on advice from the vet, John’s brother reluctantly had to have his beloved companion euthanized. John, of course, went with him and needless to say it was a very traumatic experience. As John was driving him home from the vet, his brother was devastated and unable to speak. After saying nothing for about ten minutes, suddenly, through his tears he said “I have to get another dog, I can’t be without a dog.” With a heavy heart, John dropped him home and went on up to the TRN adoption store. He walked in and saw a little Jack Russel mix that was the exact colours of his brother’s dog. What are the chances of that? I can’t remember the last time we had a Jack Russel available for adoption! His name was Blake. John could not believe it, he took a picture of the little guy and texted it to his brother. He called him about ten minutes later to see if he got the picture. His brother answered the phone, and said “I’m on my way.” He came right up to the store and sat with Blake for a few minutes, it was love at first sight! Blake jumped up onto his lap and a little while later they left the store together. John’s brother called later and said how well he and Blake, now renamed Roger, were getting along and how happy he was that he had a loving new companion.I feel very lucky to be able to share such a beautiful story with you. This is a reminder of why we do what we do. The picture on the left is the poor, sweet dog, Amy, who had to be euthanized. The second picture is Blake/Roger and the third picture is the love match ❤️❤️❤️

Here is the picture of sweet Amy and now the new companion Roger!!

Today was a wonderful day with lots of tears of joy. It’s taken us a while but we finally found our beautiful Thurber his furever home. This sweet, joyous dog has made his way into all of our hearts with his amazing spirit. Today was Thurber’s big day and as John pointed out, Thurber doesn’t usually kiss on a first date. But he knew, when this lady came in and sat with him, this was the one!

We are delighted that Thurber is finally going home tonight instead of back to the shelter and judging by the look on his face, I think Thurber is pretty happy too.He’s our 177th adoption.

Bella Update-

Bella could only manage a slow, stiff-legged walk last week when she came to the TRN store. Look at her now, trotting around the fields at her new home. Happiness has given her a new lease on life ❤️❤️❤️


We knew that sweet Bella deserved somewhere really special after everything she’d been through and boy has she got it. Bella was adopted today and is now living on a 50 acre ranch with a pack of senior dogs that follow their Mom around during the day and then go inside to comfy beds and all sleep together when the sun goes down. We are so happy for Bella, she is going to have the best life from now on.And she knows it, look at her smile ❤️❤️She is our 165th adoption.


Yippee! More good news. Beautiful Boots got adopted today. The first picture shows her with her new Mom, and look at that fabulous big smile. The second picture is one that her new Mom just sent us. The message with the picture said ‘I’m sorry, I don’t like Boots. I absolutely love her! ❤️❤️Boots is our 166th adoption.

We achieve so much by word of mouth. One of our volunteers shared a picture of beautiful Murray on FB, her neighbours saw it, went to the TRN store and adopted her! Thank you all for spreading the word. Congratulations to beautiful Murray, you will be so loved â¤ï¸
That’s our 163rd adoption.

We don’t have a picture of him with his new family yet but great news, Rocky got adopted today. 🎉🍾 We’re so happy that this sweet boy is finally going home to be loved. Congratulations Rocky.

But wait, we’re not done yet. Our THIRD adoption of the day was the beautiful Karen. Such a gorgeous dog. We couldn’t be happier ❤️❤️❤️And that is our 161st adoption. What a great day.

After Winnie got adopted then Tate found his own family, our second adoption of the day ❤️❤️ Tate is our 160th adoption. Yippee 🎉🍾

We had a really great day at TRN today. Winnie got adopted. Here she is with her new Mom ❤️ We’re so delighted for them both.

Harlow was confiscated from an abusive environment by animal control officers. She had cactus lodged in her throat and still has a bullet in her skull. Adopted in February 2020, we found Harlow some new people who will give her the love she deserves and then some. We believe in turnarounds!
We conjure an easy, laid-back environment so senior dogs and people can get to know each other in a setting that is more like home than a shelter. This person spent a long time on a couch with Peanut one day, then called us first thing the next morning to let us know she was on her way to fetch him. Adopted in February 2020, Peanut is a tiny bit extra-special: our 100th adoption since opening. Go home, little doggie.
Sugar was adopted in February 2020 at our adoption marathon featuring senior dogs from Pima Animal Care Center. These two Phoenix residents drove to Tucson after seeing our Facebook post about her. Sugar has a home again because of the commitment both PACC and TRN have made to senior dogs and because of our volunteers who foster senior dogs struggling to adjust to shelter life. We thank all of you who follow us on Facebook and share our posts, because that’s how Sugar found her home. We all did it together!
Girlie, a 9 year old, 3-legged lab mix, was adopted by this wonderful person during an adoption marathon featuring senior dogs from PACC in February 2020. She is the 95th senior dog adoption we have facilitated. Now, who looks happier, the person or the dog?
Mucura applies some love to her brand new person. She was adopted in February 2020 and is our 88th adoption since opening.
After spending just 1 day at Tucson Rescue Now, Hazel, 7 years old, found her new home in February 2020.
This 11 year old Boston terrier, Yogi, found his new mom and a couple sisters in February 2020. Now part of a three-generation family, Yogi’s future is bright and secure.
We invited this person to sit with our senior dogs while her friend was shopping next door. One thing led to another, and well… Dogs know the way to your heart. Sweet Winnie, 7 years old, went home, January 2020.
Fonzi, a 7 year old terrier mix, was adopted by the person on the right, but the person on the left lives just a few doors away and is now Fonzi’s vice-person.
Toby with his new family, January 2020. This little one was adopted during his first day at Tucson Rescue Now. He barely had time to make the couch warm.
5-year-old Mork and 7-year-old Mindy came to us as a very closely bonded pair. We did not want to separate them by adoption. Thanks to this very kind person, their time at a shelter is over, and they will live the rest of their lives together.
Watch out mall security officers! You will see soulful senior dogs on walks at La Encantada, and you might decide you can’t go home without one. And so, Scooter found his match in December 2019. Love at first sight.
Adopted in November 2020, we see many car rides in Allie’s future, and we bet those boys will keep her busy playing. Lucky dog, lucky family.
