ALGBR is dedicated to educating the public on the breeds we rescue. We participate in both public and private events; educate school children and the general public. We are a non-profit* organization that is run solely on donations and all of our â??employeesâ? are unpaid volunteers. We do this because we love these wonderful creatures and we want to place as many as we can into their forever homes. Our dogs come from several sources. First and foremost from owner turn-ins, these are dogs whose owners can no longer care for them. We take the dog into our organization rather than having the dog turned over to the Humane Society or Animal Care and Control. There is great value bringing these dogs into our program. They are less likely to be exposed to disease or suffer mental stress by moving from a home situation to a smaller program such as ours. The transition for the dog to the new home is much easier. Owner turn-ins also allow us to have a more complete history of the dog. We participate in the Maricopa County Animal Care & Control New Hope Program. The program allows us to intake dogs that are slated to be euthanized, often for no other reason than a lack of space. In addition, we work with other rescue groups who may not have room for a specific dog. Once we intake a dog it usually will spend time in a foster home. Our foster homes are all volunteers that care for their foster dogs as if they were their own. This includes working on housebreaking, basic training, grooming and medical care. All dogs available for adoption have had a basic veterinary checkup, have current vaccinations and a micro chip.
