Sadly, with all of these duties, many people find that they can’t keep up. The consequence is a large number of unwanted pets arriving at Arizona shelter and rescue groups everyday.

When deciding to adopt a dog it is very important to choose your dog carefully. It is essential that you find a dog that best matches your personality and lifestyle. It is too often that dogs are turned into shelters because of behavior problems. Visiting your local shelter and rescue groups is highly recommended.

Now that you’ve decided on the perfect dog, you only have a few more steps to complete the adoption process. You must be 18 years of age, provide photo id and have a verifiable address. The fees can range from $60 to $200 depending on the dog type and any additional options you choose, such as Microchips. However, the cost is well worth the enjoyment you will get from your new dog.
