Description: 
WE WILL BOW WOW YOU!!! Tipper is very much a people dog. Tipper loves to run around. He knows the good that life can bring. And he is patiently waiting for that. Tipper has been through quite a bit since his owner dropped him off with us. But through it all, he has proved to be a good sport. Tipper will need to be re-assured that he will be loved and will be with you as long as he lives. You look at him and wonder why would someone give up on a dog such as him. You can sense the love within him waiting to be shared. As with all our foster pet children, Tipper has been altered, microchipped, is current on his shots. For more information on this fella, please call his foster dad, Bob at (623) 680-1170 after 4:30 on the weekdays. ***ABOUT US AND OUR MISSION*** I started this non-profit animal rescue (501(c)(3)) in March of 2004 after working with several rescue/adoption groups over the last few years and being told that I could not pick up dogs off the street or that there were certain dogs that I could not rescue from the Animal Care and Control Center (The Pound) because of their breed. If an animal is on the street, it needs help now! Furthermore, I believe that all animals deserve a life and a good home regardless of breed. I've been told I'm everything from angry to undiplomatic. Angry? You're damn right I'm angry!! On an average, there is approximately two thousand animals euthanized (murdered) EVERY WEEK in Maricopa County alone. If this were 1942, the world would react. Yet, we can't even get the state to address this. This atrocity is nothing less than genocide. Undiplomatic? Diplomacy does not seem to be working. Oddly enough that's why I chose Robin Hood as the name for my animal rescue group. And that's why my motto is, 'We don't have a friar, but we give a tuck about everyone.' We here at Robin Hood Animal Rescue believe that dogs and cats are to be loved as you would a child. They are so much like children. And the unconditional love they have for us is beyond comparison. They are so much more than a watch dog, mouse catcher or a family pet to keep outside. If you believe the same as we do, please check out our wonderful fosters. Perhaps, that special one to fill your heart is with us waiting for you. ***SPONSOR/DONATION*** As of August 18, 2008, you can help our fosters by sponsoring through the Petfinder.com Foundation. At the bottom of each one's story is a 'sponsor me' button. You may use that to sponsor a particular dog or cat or to sponsor all of them. We rescue first and foremost without regard to temperament, breed or size. There have been those rescued who have needed immediate medical attention. The time has come for us to put aside our pride and ask for financial assistance so that we can continue to rescue and take care of those who others would toss aside. We believe that there is someone special out where for each and every dog and cat. Its just a matter of finding that special someone. And sometimes that takes a while. And sometimes medical expenses surfaced for various reasons. For example, there is Lance, a handsome golden retriever mix whose nose had been almost completely torn off. We still trapped him and saw to having his nose taken care of. Lance, nose and all is in his forever home. And now there is Sassie, a beautiful grey colored pit girl whose eye was bloody when she was rescued out of an alley. We took her to the vet's and found out that her eye had been lacerated, and had to be removed. To us, Sassie is still a beautiful girl. We believe that someone else will also see that beauty in her. The monies received through the 'sponsor me' program will be used to help these wonderful souls, many who have been discarded as worthless. But we know better. They are of great worth. They truly are blessings for us. We all here at Robin Hood Animal Rescue thank you for also caring about these wonderful pets who deserve a loving family.
