The founders initially worked with several rescue/adoption groups, but grew frustrated with limitations they found unacceptable. The limitations included not being able to pick up stray dogs and cats nor could certain breeds be rescued from the Animal Care and Control Center. It was apparent that a new organization without these limitations needed to be formed to overcome these obstacles, that is how Robin Hood Animal Rescue began; dedicated to helping all dogs and cats in need regardless of breed or situation. It was the founders frustration and anger with the situation that helped to breed success and attention to this problem. On an average, there are over two thousand animals euthanized EVERY WEEK in Maricopa County alone.
To put an end to this atrocity, please spay or neuter your pet, put a collar with a tag (address, phone number, etc.) on your pet, microchip your pet or become a foster or adopt a pet from any of the animal rescue groups or animal control facilities and make it a life long commitment.
Animal rescue is an uphill battle every foot of the way, but we believe that what we are doing what needs to be done. We find the strength to continue when we look into the endearing eyes of our adopted pets and the joyful faces of their new families. This and the financial support and gifts of supplies from gracious donors help us continue on each day.
We are foster home based, which means that we don’t have a facility where the dogs and cats are kept for show and tell. Instead each pet is with a caring foster parent being loved and taken well care of until an adoptive parent or family is found.
Robin Hood Foster Homes are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten.
Areas that we serve: We are located in the greater Phoenix area, but we have adopted to folks in Wisconsin, Ohio,, Californa, Chicago and Las Vegas. We will do almost anything if it means getting the best home for our fosters. Ask Tipper’s dad back in Wisconsin. We were able to get Tipper to Wisconsin through Roads of Hope. Tipper had to wait with us for over five years. And now, he is one of the happiest dogs alive. We were able to have Mo Mo who was an owner turn re-united (adopted) with her original family after they moved to Toledo, Ohio and found out that they were allowed to have a dog where they were renting. Once again, Roads of Hope made it happen. And Mo Mo was home for Christmas.
