Not us! Secondhand Hounds rescues, heals, fosters and finds forever homes for at-risk dogs and cats.
Did you know that shelters and rescues always have a great selection of animals looking for new homes? You can find cats, dogs, birds, small animals, even horses and livestock.
Nike Animal Rescue Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, all volunteer organization dedicated to providing assistance to cats and dogs in need. All of our and available for adoption can be viewed here on the site. We hold in the South Bay several times a month where you can see all the pets in person.

The Hotel for Dogs & Cats Rescue and Adoption Service
We currently have more than 300 cats (we also have dogs and puppies that we have rescued) available for adoption. Good forever homes are urgently needed so that we can continue rescuing friendly, stray cats who otherwise may not survive on the streets or on "death row" at shelters. During the winter months, the plight of abandoned, domesticated cats becomes an even more life-or-death situation.RESCUE is the last voice for dogs and cats who, through no fault of their own, find themselves awaiting an uncertain fate at our county Animal Control and Humane Society. Since 1995, we have operated with the philosophy that for every animal we place we will be back to rescue another precious dog or cat. To date, we have fulfilled that promise nearly 12,000 times.
While all of the cats and dogs presented on this site have stayed at Maricopa County pounds and Humane Society, they are now safe in our care. Being cared for by our dedicated, loving volunteers until their permanent loving homes can be found. These amazingly resilient and wonderful beings reside in the homes of our dedicated foster parents or with our boarding partners. RESCUE does not have a shelter.Before this, enormous numbers of animals who went into shelters never came out. More than 40 years ago, an average of 20 million dogs and cats were euthanized annually. Humane organizations started a campaign to spay and neuter pets, especially those coming through shelters, and today —still terrible, but a vast improvement. In addition to pet sterilization, an effort also began to find accommodations for homeless animals outside the municipal and private shelter systems, which have limited room and often short deadlines for keeping animals before moving them to death row. The new organizations take potentially adoptable pets out of the shelters and foster them, usually in private homes, until the right owner comes along. They control the fate of an increasing number of animals. In New York City, for example, almost 45 percent of the dogs and cats that come into are passed to one of more than 150 private rescue groups.We rescue, rehabilitate and find permanent homes for healthy cats and dogs that were scheduled for shelter euthanasia. We're also developing education, outreach and awareness initiatives to help end the needless suffering once and for all.
