FREQUENTLY ANSWERED QUESTIONS
WHO ARE WE?
Lend-A-Bone Rescue is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization that is working to help reduce the amount of dogs in the pound and help those especially who have a more difficult time finding a home. We focus largely on dogs that are on the euthanasia list and help find them foster or adoptive homes. We also have a rescue facility that houses some of our pups up for adoption. In the rescue you will also find a dog store with treats to buy for you and your furry pup. All profits from the store go right back into our rescue, come check us out. We also have a doggy day care, where our rescue pups can be found and your dog can hang out with. We want people to be able to connect with the animals and get a real sense of who these dogs are. We welcome people who are looking to adopt and anyone looking to cuddle with a rescue pup. If you love dogs, you're more than welcome here!
WHERE ARE THE DOGS FROM?
All dogs are rescues from local shelters, we keep them with us until they can find a home and are adopted!
CAN I SURRENDER A DOG TO YOU?
Sorry at this time we are unable to take in any dogs directly. Please visit Pima Animal Care Center if you need assistance, they are an awesome shelter with great resources.

DO I NEED TO MAKE A RESERVATION?
You are more than welcome to visit us at anytime during business hours and buy some treats or toys in the store. But we do recommend a reservation if you're set on visiting a potential pup adoptee to ensure you will have a 1-1 with them.
WHAT SERVICES DO YOU OFFER?
We offer a dog retail shop with a rescue hang out vibe. You can shop around with your pup for treats and toys where all profits go right back into our rescue. You can also head into the back where there is a doggy day care, and your dog can hang out with our rescue pups. Or if you are looking to adopt, you can also have yourself a playdate with one of our rescues and see if you're a match! Come check us out or shop online at www.lendabonestore.com.
HOW DOES ADOPTION WORK?
You fill out an adoption application form. Once your application is cleared and approved one of our employees will contact you to set up a meet and greet with the pup to ensure it's a good match. If it is, you then sign our adoption contract, pay the adoption fee, and take your forever family member home!
We always allow and encourage you to return the pup to us if it doesn't end up working out.
**We also offer 1-2 week adoption trials for every pup, to ensure it's a right fit before the contract is signed.
HOW MUCH IS THE ADOPTION FEE?
Adoption fee can range anywhere from $85-275 depending on the dog and it's needs but, we will work with you to reduce the rate if you're unable to meet the fee. We just want to ensure our dogs go to loving forever homes that can provide for them.
DO THE DOGS COME VACCINATED?
All our dogs are current on vaccinations, microchipped and fixed. Younger pups will receive vaccinations and spay/neuter when the time is appropriate.
We hope we were able to answer all your questions if not, please feel free to contact us or visit us! Thank you.
