What is CABRA?

The Coalition of All Breed Rescue of Arizona (CABRA) is a non-profit corporation organized for charitable purposes as defined under Section 501(c)(3) of the IRS Code. Its member rescues are dedicated to rescuing and finding good homes for purebred (and mixed breed) dogs. It is CABRA's hope that more unwanted dogs will find loving, lifetime homes through the efforts and activities of its members.

Members assist animals of recognized breeds by removing them from shelters whenever possible, and from homes where they are no longer loved or wanted. They then work to place them into permanent, adoptive homes. Many are fostered by CABRA members, while others are placed through direct referral.

CABRA screens its members carefully to assure quality for both the animal and the adopter. Members have agreed to abide by an established Code of Ethics. CABRA requires that all rescue animals be neutered or spayed, health checked, and current on all shots prior to adoption.

How can I help?


Although its members represent nearly half of the recognized dog breeds in the country, CABRA is made up of individuals and small groups doing what they can on limited budgets.

CABRA is an Arizona non-profit corporation and is tax-exempt according to IRS tax code 501(c)3.

Your gifts of cash and supplies (crates, grooming equipment, food, etc.) are tax deductible. If you want your donation to be used to help a specific breed, please indicate this on your gift.

Donations may be sent to CABRA at P.O. Box 3981 Gilbert, AZ 85299. Thank you for your help.

In addition, many CABRA rescues need volunteers to help interview applicants or perform other duties, and many are in desperate need of foster homes. A foster home agrees to take in a dog on a temporary basis until a new home can be found. Lack of foster home space is the biggest reason rescues turn away dogs. If you can help in any way, contact the individual rescue and see if they need volunteers.
