foothills animal rescueFoothills Animal Rescue presents “Rock and Roll Rescue” on April 14, from 6 - 10 p.m. at Desert Mountain’s beautiful Cochise/Geronimo Clubhouse.  Enjoy an evening of drinks, dinner, and music featuring the band The Roadrunners.  Dance ‘til the dogs and cats come home as they play Rock and Roll hits of the 60s and 70s.

“Rock and Roll Rescue” is all about raising money to help the animals,” said FAR President, Laura Jones.  “What better way to give than to have a beautiful evening out at such an unforgettable venue.”

And unforgettable it is.  Desert Mountain was recently picked to host the Charles Schwab Cup Championship that will be played on The Mountain’s Cochise golf course in October.  Get your tickets to “Rock and Roll Rescue”, and come see the beautiful Cochise club that will play host to some of the greatest names in golf.

“It’s incredible to be able to play for such a worthy cause, like Foothills Animal Rescue,” says leader of the Roadrunner Band’s Kent “Kip” Phillips.  The Roadrunner’s band is made up of professional touring and studio musicians who are also Desert Mountain Members.

In early 2010 Foothills Animal Rescue purchased a new facility in North Scottsdale.  Located at Pinnacle Peak and Pima Road, this facility provides spacious cat rooms and individual dog suites.  There is a medical clinic housing incoming animals and animals requiring medical care.  Larger dogs are fostered in private homes.  A Resale Boutique assisting in the support of the rescue is located in a separate building on the property.

Foothills Animal Rescue was founded in 1995. FAR is committed to compassionate and humane treatment of dogs and cats in need through rescue, shelter, fostering and adoption within Maricopa County. 

To purchase tickets to “Rock and Roll Rescue,” please contact Laura Jones,, at 480-266-9862, or Kathy Gaines at, 480-452-2002.

Help make Maricopa County 'No Kill'

maricopa county no killThirty communities across our great nation are saving a minimum of 90 percent of their shelter animals. These communities range from the north to south, east to west, rich to poor, urban to rural. This amazing success is being accomplished due to the national, grassroots No Kill movement. No Kill Maricopa County is advocating for the same national success for the shelter animals of Maricopa County.

Under current shelter leadership, Maricopa County Animal Care and Control (MCACC) has killed over 120,000 animals. That is over 20,000 every year. Thousands per month. Hundreds per week. Dozens per day. One animal was killed every six minutes MCACC was open to the public. It does not have to be this way.

Join us on Tuesday, April 10, 2012 from 7 – 8 p.m. at Paradise Valley Community Center, 17402 N 40th Street, Phoenix, AZ  85032, to learn how We the People will take back our shelter and help make Maricopa County No Kill as fast as humanly possible!
