Make a Difference Through Pet Adoption in Scottsdale

Perhaps now more than ever the need for pet adoptions is great, and you can make a real difference in Scottsdale by adopting a pet and expanding your family today.

Scottsdale is an amazing place to live—for people as well as dogs and cats too. WalletHub recently reviewed 100 major cities across the U.S. for pet-friendliness and ranked Scottsdale No. 1 and Phoenix No. 5. That is pretty incredible when you consider some of the cities on that list. One aspect that distinguishes our area for pet parents and their pets is that in addition to many large and modern dog parks, we have many restaurants, cafes, and similar businesses that let us bring our pets to socialize. Scottsdale not only scored well in these regards but in categories like the cost of being a pet parent and pet health and wellness.

You Can’t Buy Love, but You Can Rescue It.

Dr. Clark and the entire team at Scottsdale Cosmetic Dentistry Excellence are passionate about providing the best dental care possible. Nothing is more important to us than our patients, but we also love pets, and that enthusiasm motivates us to assist in animal adoption and rescue efforts in whatever way we can.

Adopt a Foster Dog or Cat Today. Your New Best Friend Is Waiting!

We take pride in using the platform we have to help find forever homes for dogs and cats in need. Even just spreading awareness about the local options here in Scottsdale can make a big difference. There are many families in the area who want to expand but don’t know how to go about it or are concerned about the costs and other challenges. Our goal is to help alleviate those concerns.

Every Dog and Cat Adopted Is a Life Saved.

One way we can help do that is by featuring and maintaining a list of animal rescues, shelters, and adoption centers not just in Scottsdale but throughout the Phoenix Metropolitan Area. Below you will find a list of the locations we know and trust. Clicking a name will bring you to that website, and practically all of these sites let you actually peruse the available animals online. Notice a rescue we omitted? Please contact us with that information so that we can review it and add it. Thank you!
