Tuffie's Animal Rescue

"A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than you love yourself."


As a dedicated 501(c)3 Animal Rescue Organization since 2005, Tuffie's Animal Rescue has discovered countless ways to make a positive difference in the lives and welfare of animals. In an ideal world, every human being would be compassionate enough to lend a helping hand. From volunteering time and making a donation, to staying informed and advocating online, there are so many ways to get involved.

What's going on at Tuffie's Animal Rescue


Coco and Chopo Starting a New Life!

Coco and Chopo are now Aurora and Vino and already settling in to their new lives and showing how smart they are!  In less than 24 hours, they already know their names, sit, down and how to walk in a harness!  
And don’t forget that we still have pups from this same litter available to great homes!

Espurr, the Blind Kitty

Update:  We have had $102 more in contributions towards Espurr’s surgery so we are up to $467.  Please keep sharing her need!  She goes in April 21.

Espurr, the blind kitty’s surgery update:  
We are one week out for Espurr’s surgery to debride the wound on her neck, clean her packed and infected ears, do a badly needed dental and maybe even spay her if she needs it and can withstand the time under surgery due to her being not only a senior, but also FIV positive.  Without the spay, surgery is estimated to be $1136-1676.  So far, donations total $365 so we could use more help.  Thank you to those of you who have already donated!  We operate on blind faith to help these homeless pets get the veterinary care that they need to live their best lives and could not do it without your help!  We are a 501(c)3 Rescue approved by IRS, so all donations are tax deductible.  


Miss Prissy and Her New Family!

Miss Prissy found a home with a wonderful, retired couple in Tonto Basin! We just love happy endings like this. Miss Prissy is sure to bring so much love to this couple and them to her. We have a lot of dogs and cats that are also looking for their forever homes. If you know someone looking for a loving companion, check out our adoptable dogs and cats, all vaccinated, spayed/neutered and microchipped. 

Buster's Forever Family Surprise!

❤️❤️❤️ Sensitive, senior Buster doesn’t know if yet, but he found his furever home yesterday! ❤️❤️❤️
Carolyn initially inquired about Harvey, but he would definitely NOT do well with her personable kitty who has lived with dogs before, so she then fell in love with Buster’s sweet face!


Sammy, Sick and in Need of Help

Sammy is an older, semi-feral tomcat who showed up on a cat lover’s patio sick and needing help. He picked the right place to go as the human brought him in to her home and is keeping him caged and separated from her other pets! He is on antibiotics and doing better. Tuffie’s Animal Rescue stepped in and we are asking for donations to get Sammy fully vetted when he is a little better, neutered, combo tested and into a good living situation. We are an approved 501(c)3 Rescue with IRS so all donations are tax deductible. We work on blind faith to be able to help the homeless dogs and cats that cross our path and could not operate without your support!
