Welcome to Rotten Rottie Rescue - Arizona's only Rottweiler Rescue!
Shelly Froehlich, President Rotten Rottie Rescue
Thank you for visiting rottenrottie.com, Arizona's only Rottweiler rescue located in Gilbert, right outside of Phoenix! Within this website you should hopefully find all the answers you are looking for when it comes to helping rescue this great breed! From the dogs we have rescued, who's in foster care, how to become a volunteer or a foster parent, forms for adoption, donating, dog training , up coming events and so much more!
We work hard to save as many as these great boys and girls off the euthanasia list at our county's animal shelter as we can (we also take owner surrenders, depending on temperament). Moreover, we rescue dogs from the Pinal County Shelter as well, and on several occasions have rescued rotties from neighboring states who were scheduled to be euthanized. The more Rottweilers we can place into forever homes, the more we can save!
This rescue is foster based, meaning we do not have a large kennel where we house the dogs in cages all day. Each rottweiler that we rescue goes to live with a family who has experience or has been trained on how to safely bring in a homeless rottweiler, whose temperament is pretty much unknown. There the dog is able to relax and shows us his true colors. We are able to help train and tweak bad habits and behavior and learn what may set the dog off, such as a cat, another dog, a crying baby etc. This knowledge gives us the ability to match our dogs with families who would be a good fit. This gives the adopter a much better advantage then going to the shelter and picking out a dog that no one knows anything about, taking it home to find out that the dog gets very aggressive when he sees a cat and you hoped he was going to be fluffy's new best friend.
By opening up your home to foster a rottweiler, you will get the satisfaction in knowing that without you the dog would be dead. Knowing that you made that much of a difference, will really make you feel good about yourself. Please click on the foster tab to learn more about our foster program. We owe all our success to our foster parents, trainer, volunteers and those who have made financial contributions. We simply could not do what we do without them. If you are interested in how you can join the Rotten Rottie family, please contact us to learn more.
Most of the boys and girls that come in to the shelters are already doomed from the start, no matter what their temperament is. The Rottweilers we rescue come from different backgrounds (stray, abused, family was moving, too old, owner incapable of handling a 100+lb dog and the list goes on). Each come with their own story, however we try not to focus on where they came from, but where they are headed! Rotten Rottie can help this breed continue to thrive in Arizona. Once again I would like to thank you for visiting this site and remember...ADOPT A ROTTWEILER, IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE!
