Review for Pets Return Home, Cottonwood, AZ, USA
All of our family dogs but one, over 48 years of marriage, have been "rescues." So, when I discovered Pets Return Home at a community event and learned they are nearby our home in Sedona, I visited their website and applied as a volunteer. From my first visit to the PRH ranch in Clarkdale I knew I made a good choice. Mark Happe, founder and managing director, saw an unfilled need in the Arizona canine rescue community and created a great solution. Pets Return Home intakes dogs from shelters and rescue groups. Dogs typically come to PRH with at least two strikes against them. They usually are large breeds that stereotype as "dangerous." And they have one or more negative behavior issues (dog, people, food aggression(s), environmental insecurities, etc.). And sometimes we receive abandoned pregnant bitches. For the majority of these dogs Pets Return Home represents escape from euthanasia. PRH,s mission is to provide care to bring the dogs back to good health, provide rehabilitative behavior training and create and place healthy, happy lifetime companions in good homes. Over its six years in service to the community PRH has succeeded in its mission nearly 700 times. That's 700 dogs' lives changed, to say nothing of saved from death. Pets Return Home is 100% dependent upon private donations, grants and in-kind donations. PRH receives no governmental funding. We are 95% dependent upon volunteers to "run the business," from doody duty to repairs and maintenance to fund-raising. From dog walking to dog bathing to dog socializing. If you love dogs and believe Pets Return Home is filling a much needed role, I know that you can donate your cash or time with full confidence that both enrich the lives of our dogs, not our humans.
