Rescue roundup July 27th 2013

The Rescue Roundup is the biggest event in Northern Arizona to educate the public about adopting animals from shelters and rescue organizations. Over 40 different rescues, shelters and vendors attended the 2010 Rescue Roundup. This event includes various demonstrations and canine activities that focus on alternative interests in canine involvement such as agility, disc dogs, and herding. Animal friendly and unique vendors also attend this venue to market and distribute their products. The Rescue Roundup is not all dogs either! Look for cats and kittens from various rescues like Paw Placement and horses from Hands-on-Horses. The awesome dog rescues vary from AZ Chihauhau Rescue to AZ Lab and Giant Breed Rescue.

The sad facts are that over 156,000 animals are brought to Arizona shelters every year. Six out of ten of these animals will never find a home to love them – they will be euthanized. This is a conservative number. Many animals are dumped or relinquished by their families that have been struggling with the economy. So many of these animals are victims of foreclosure, family moving to smaller dwellings – nothing that they have done wrong. A shelter can give safe haven for a short amount of time, but there are so many to help. Rescues offer an alternative and can keep animals in a foster home situation. Adopting from a shelter or rescue will make room for another animal in need.

Can I Adopt An Animal At This Event?


That depends on the shelter or rescue organizations requirements. All of the animals are available – some organizations ask for home checks and pre-approval before adoption. Others may require paperwork. Some may hold an animal for you until the requirements are met. Rescues and shelters will also have a fee to adopt their animals. This fee helps cover the cost of preparing animals for adoption. Most rescues and shelters provide spay/neuter certification, rabies, and all current shots to protect your new companion. Microchipping may also be included.
Get your dog microchipped at the AZ Border Collie Rescue Booth! A microchip is about the size of a grain of rice. It consists of a tiny computer chip housed in a type of glass made to be compatible with living tissue. The microchip is implanted between the dog’s shoulder blades under the skin with a needle and special syringe. The process is similar to getting a shot. Little to no pain is experienced – most dogs do not seem to even feel it being implanted. Once in place, the microchip can be detected immediately with a handheld device that uses radio waves to read the chip. This device scans the microchip, and then displays a unique alphanumeric code. Once the microchip is placed, the dog must be registered with the microchip company, usually for a one-time fee. Then, the dog can be traced back to the owner if found.
