    Farley, Rottweiler Mix Puppy

    Meet Farley. Farley was brought into the county shelter with a pretty significant femur fracture. You can see in the X-rays that his bone is broken all the way through! We don’t know Farley’s past and so we don’t know how this injury happened; how a two month old puppy came to have such a […]

    Meet Sheldon. Sheldon was taken in from the Yuma shelter when they sent out a plea for help. This 10 week old puppy weighs in at just 3.8 pounds and has an obviously broken front leg. M.A.I.N. wanted to help this sweet pup, so he made the trip all the way from Yuma to his […]

    Meet Shilly. Shilly is just eight weeks old and only four pounds! She was found wandering around an apartment complex in Phoenix and brought into the county shelter. Can you imagine?

  • Sophia, Shar Pei Mix

    Sophia, Shar Pei Mix

    Meet MAIN’s newest rescue, sweet 2 year old Sophia. Sophia was found abandoned, staggering down a molten sidewalk in Phoenix’s infamous summer. Infested with more than 1,000 blood-sucking ticks, she has been denied (presumably since day one) any basic right to health or happiness – and as we gaze upon her emaciated and tick-ridden body, […]

    Meet Joey. Joey was rushed to our partner vet’s office from the county shelter this past week, after a contact of ours saw him being turned into the shelter in this inconceivable condition… With his eye bulging out of the socket, Joey would have been euthanized for his injuries- at six weeks old, his short […]

  • Zuri, Shepherd Mix

    Zuri, Shepherd Mix

    Meet Zuri. Zuri was wasting away at the county pound. Brought into the shelter as a stray and weighing just 28 pounds, Zuri is extremely underweight and malnourished…she surely would have died alone out there on the streets. Zuri also has a very obvious issue going on with her paws- they are largely swollen and […]

    Meet Drifter. **WARNING, GRAPHIC PHOTOS** Friends, we first want to apologize and give a warning for the extremely graphic nature of these photos and this story.

    Meet Ezra. Ezra is 10 pounds of skin and bones. His fur is clumped with dirt and severely matted.

To make matters worse, […]

    Meet Gonzo. Gonzo is an approximately two year old terrier mix who came into the shelter as a stray.

    Meet Austen. Austen was reportedly attacked by another dog before ending up at the shelter. His fur is matted with blood and mud, the right side of his jaw is largely swollen and he has green drainage from his right eye. These are the injuries we can see, but actually not what we are most […]

  • Daphne, Min Pin Mix

    Daphne, Min Pin Mix

    Meet Daphne. When we saw Daphne’s picture on the euthanasia list at county, we knew immediately we had to help. This poor girl’s fur was mostly missing and she was covered in dry, crusty scabs from head to toe. She was listed at two years old and “temp human,” meaning she displayed some aggressive signs […]
