To rescue dogs that have been abandoned, neglected or otherwise placed in harms way. To provide a sanctuary for the temporary housing of adoptable dogs and a refuge for hard-to-place or unadoptable dogs. To promote and encourage the responsible care of pets, especially spaying and neutering and vaccination of dogs, and puppies.
Valley Dogs is a 501(c)(3) non-profit (EIN: 26-0896950), no-kill animal rescue organization who's mission is to rescue dogs that have been abandoned, neglected, or otherwise placed in harm's way; to provide a sanctuary for the temporary housing of adoptable dogs, and to promote and encourage the responsible care of pets, especially spaying or neutering, and vaccination of cats, dogs, kittens, and puppies. We have over 40 years of combined rescue experience and knowledge.
I emailed this organization and never heard back. The Valley Dogs' website says adoptions are held every Saturday at PetSmart at the Camelback Colonnade (South West corner of 20th St. & Camelback) from 10am to 3pm, and volunteers can just show up. We went to help on Saturday, Jan 18, but no one was there. We asked a Petsmart staff if they knew about the adoption event, and she said it was strange that Valley Dogs hadn't shown up. I called the organization to see if they were coming, and never received a call back. This group is unorganized, and doesn't value people who want to help them.

As an all volunteer organization every effort and dollar goes to benefit the dogs. As an all volunteer organization we do our best to balance our professional life with our passion for saving dogs. The bottom line is we are committed to our dogs. Valley Dogs is one of the few (if not the only) rescue organization that helps owners re-home their dogs. Many owners are very concerned about making the right decision. Is this the best place for my dog? We work with them and walk them through the process. If you would like to help, commit some time please come see us. If you have the capacity to do more and take on a foster please do. You will always be rewarded.
I adopted my dog Guss from Valley Dogs, and was so impressed with the wonderful care they gave him, I wanted to give back. This is the most rewarding volunteer work that I have been involved in. I have been a volunteer with Valley Dogs since 2007. From fostering to fundraising, Valley Dogs has many different volunteer opportunities. Our volunteers are dedicated, friendly, and most of all passionate about dogs!
