Picture Meet Abbey "Puppy love"

The long and winding road that leads to your door Will never disappear I've seen that road before it always leads me here Leads me to your door. MEET ABBEY ROAD! This adorable little gal is a 1 year old puppy that was just rescued from the East Valley Shelter where she came in as a stray. She is a 15-pound, sweet-faced, and with her long legs Italian Greyhound with her CURLY Shiba Inu tail never stops wagging! This girl just wants to have fun!

Abbey Road is a fabulous little dog! We are looking for someone who wants to spend time with her and teach her what is expected of her so she can be a good canine citizen for the rest of her life. Like all puppies she would benefit from training and structure. She’s walking well on a leash and is good in the car. She is doesn’t have a mean bone in her body but because she’s doing some puppy mouthing a home with small children with not be right for her.

Being a puppy she is full of life and energy. She would make a great agility dog and is going to do best with an active person. She loves to PLAY - with you, with other dogs, with toys, with pieces of paper she finds on the floor. She loves to play in the yard and can chase a ball like nobody's business! But then, she will snuggle up next to you and rest up for next time. She really is a little love bug.

Abbey Road is spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. She is good with cats but likes to try to play with all creatures. She sleeps quietly in her crate at night, but revels in the opportunity to snuggle up under the covers with you if given the chance. She has been housebroken in her foster home.

Does Abbey’s long and winding road lead to your door? If you open the door and let her in you will get her unconditional love and a life time of adventure & FUN!


Baby Piper was incarcerated at the East Valley Animal Shelter through no fault of her own. Rescue Train volunteers plotted an escape and she is now in a loving foster home with her sister Alex.

Gorgeous Piper trademarks are her soft ginger hair and her innocence soul. She is always on her best behavior. Piper is a RARE kitten as most orange cats are genetically males. She is demure and a little shy but loves to held and feel safe.

Piper would love to be adopted with one of her bunk mates, but she would also do well in a home with another playful cat or as the only kitty of a true cat person who has the time to interact with her. Piper is 3 months old, litter box trained, tested negative for FIV/LUK, dewormed and defleaed and has had her first round of vaccines. She will be spayed for adoption. Can you open your heart and home to a rebel kitty and a rescue group with a cause? Meet Schnozy Come Snuggle With Me!

Schnozy is a 4 year old, 20 lbs, Poodle/WestieTerrier mix. Once he feels safe around people he is a little lover. He actually gives hugs and is the greeter at The Rescue Train office. He goes from person to person to show them what a good boy he is. He’s quiet and well behaved. He's great in the car and very good when you bathe him.

When Schnozy came of the shelter he had bladder stones (probably from a poor diet). We had surgery to remove the stones and as a result he leaks small amounts of urine. He wears a belly band while inside.

He is reactive to other dogs, but we've done some training and he is now walking well on the leash much better around other animals. We had our professional dog trainer work with Schnoz and she feels he would be best as the only animal in the home. Whoever adopts him will get free private lessons. Because he needs to be further socialized with other animals we don't think he'd be the best match for a first time dog owner or a home with young children. He threatened by cats,and the jury is still out on if he could live with one. He is the kind of dog that is very eager to please. He listens and is trying to figure out what his handler wants. If he could talk we know he would say..."I'M A GOOD BOY I just need you to teach me what you want me to do!" He will blossom when he gets into a home. Schnoz is neutered, micro-chipped and current on vaccines. He's ready to wag his way into your heart! He deserves to find his place in this world. He’s going to make a wonderful companion for someone with a huge heart.
