A Phoenix based animal rescue group, Robin Hood Animal Rescue, is in the final countdown to the loss of one of their properties (October 20 is the eviction date for Shellie's property in Buckeye).  This leaves them with perhaps one property to house their animals.  Bob's home is being 'evaluated' by Bank Of America to see if they will modify his loan or otherwise come up with something that would allow him to stay in his home.  Bob and Shellie started this non-profit animal rescue (501(c)(3)) in March of 2004, after working with several rescue and adoption groups over the last few years and being told that they could not pick up dogs off the street; or that there were certain dogs that they could not rescue from the Animal Care and Control Center because of their breed.  Bob (the director) decided that he had to start his own rescue: too many good dogs were going to end up dead with the popular notion held by many local groups that only "highly marketable" dogs should be rescued.  Bob and Shellie have saved many pits and other less marketable dogs and have found them forever homes - changing the way people view pit bulldogs at the same time. 

The goal is to find forever homes for their remaining dogs and cats, then to regroup with a commercial property (such as a boarding facility or vet office that may be vacant) that will allow them to have more flexibility and community visibility, perhaps.  Here is a link to a local TV feature on RHAR:

If you can help by adopting a dog or cat, visit them on Petfinder:

Their care and concern for each and every one of their animals is amazing.  Please do what you can!  It will be appreciated by Bob and Shellie, and especially the dogs and cats....!
