Scottsdale dog shelter at full capacity after recent series of monsoon storms

A Scottsdale dog shelter is at capacity after more dogs were brought into their facility after recent monsoon storms, and the rescue is hoping the public can help.

Someone dropped off a mom and her two puppies – as well as a husky – at the Desert Tails Shelter after the last episode of heavy rains. This happened after the nonprofit had just taken in 17 dogs from another shelter who needed extra care and attention.

“We just had four dogs who were recently abandoned during the last storm we had on Monday night,” said Adama Pfaff, manager of Desert Tails Shelter. “One of them was a mother and day old puppies – they were left in a dog bed with just rabbit food.”

Adama and his team make sure the dogs are cared for and safe.

“We’re just trying to… medically prep them and get the houses,” Adama said.

The Desert Tails team lovingly named new mother Stormy and husky Thunder.

They all hope to find them once they are medically cleared and ready for adoption.
