Arizona Fundraiser for rescued dogs

One of our biggest passions here at The Dog Squad Az is rescuing dogs that have no homes.  Hundreds of thousands of dogs get put to sleep every year for no good reason.  Dogs are turned into shelters daily .  The reasons I hear all too often for abandoning a pet are “We didn’t have time for him”, “She was too destructive”, “I don’t feel attached to him”, “I took him to the shelter, they will find him a home”.  There are far too many homeless dogs to find homes for all of them.  We are huge advocates for spaying and neutering your pets to help with the problem.  One of the greatest organizations we have ever seen is Arizona Border Collie Rescue.  This is a wonderful group that specializes in Border Collies in need of help.  They have helped so many dogs find loving homes.  We foster for this group regularly and it is so rewarding.  They take in dogs with medical conditions that need attention, dogs that need to be vaccinated and spayed and neutered.  All this costs  a lot of money.  One of their main fundraisers is their annual calendar.  All proceeds of these calendars go directly back to the dogs.  We strongly encourage you to support this group and purchase a calendar.  Check out Miss December – She is especially cute.  That’s Zoe – my cute Border Collie.  I am attaching the link so you can get one for yourself!

Easter Grooming for Daphne and Randi

Daphne groomed in glendaleRandi groomed by The Dog Squad Az in GlendaleDaphne and Randi got their Easter grooming today!!!  Both were pretty happy to have it done but Randi (The Border Collie mix) was actually smiling!  She wiggled and waggled and strutted her stuff as soon as she came back inside after the grooming.  They are both beautiful girls and hey, what girl doesn’t like to get her hair done!  Be sure to book your Easter grooming’s soon.  That is one of the busiest times of the year for us and spots fill up quickly.  You’ve got to have them looking their best on Easter morning while they search for surprises left by the Easter bunny!
