Home Fur Good Animal Rescue and Placement (HFG), located at 10220 North 32nd St, south of Shea Blvd, is a nonprofit, no kill shelter. HFG’s mission is to eliminate euthanasia of treatable, adoptable cats and dogs in Maricopa County through placements, promotion of spay/neuter, medical care and increased community awareness. In 2017 this small rescue placed over 500 cats and dogs in their “furever” homes!

HFG rescues dogs from Maricopa County Animal Care and Control, primarily from the euthanasia list. Many of the dogs come in with medical issues. HFG does take in cats from the public. Prior to adoption all rescues are examined by vet, vaccinated, dewormed, microchipped, and spayed or neutered. Cats are also FELV/FIV tested. If needed, a medical treatment plan is put into place and funds are raised for larger surgeries. HFG also works with trainers to assess and correct behavioral issues.

Adoption fees range from $300 for a puppy to $150 for an older dog; cats are $85 and kittens $100. On occasion HFG has “guardian angel” dogs or cats, which command a higher fee. HFG does not have a time limit on the length of stay. Additionally, HFG takes back its rescues if the adopter is no longer able to care for the cat or dog.

HFG operates a low-cost vaccine and microchip clinic, open to the public, each Sunday from 11am to 2:30pm. It is a walk-in clinic, so no appointment needed! Heartworm and FELV/FIV tests for cats are also available. Vaccines are $20 each and microchips are $32. No charge for the vet exam.

HFG also has a new low cost dental clinic open to the community. Bloodwork is required prior to the dental ($75). The actual cleaning/scaling and polishing is $250 and extractions are additional. Digital x-rays are available. Dentals are done each Wednesday and are by appointment only. Call (602) 509-6620 for more information regarding dental procedures.

All proceeds from both clinics go to support adoption efforts.
