Meet Crispin. Crispin has an unknown skin condition that causes most of his fur to scab and fall off.

Gidget, Poodle Mix

Meet Gidget. At just two years old, we aren’t sure what Gidget’s life must have been up to this point. She was already spayed when she came in to the shelter, which means she was either someone’s dog or had been in a shelter before. But no one came looking for Gidget in her hour […]

Meet MAIN’s newest rescue, sweet 2 year old Sophia. Sophia was found abandoned, staggering down a molten sidewalk in Phoenix’s infamous summer.
