Please remember that we are in the process of rebranding from PAWS to Desert Tails.
Our mission is to find pets of all ages and breeds their forever homes. Many of the pets at our facility have been previously overlooked or abandoned and just need someone to take a chance on them.
Our Adoption Process
Come down to the shelter to find your new best friend! We’ll work with you to make sure they are a good fit for your family. We encourage you to bring existing pets for a meet and greet. You can also foster to adopt.
Adoption events are held frequently around the Valley in addition to our regularly scheduled walk-in hours. Check our events page or come visit us at 6423 E. Thomas Road, Scottsdale 85251 and say hello!
Regular hours are on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9a – noon, as well as on Saturdays from 10a-2p. Other times are available by appointment. Please contact us on Facebook if you’d like schedule a time.
