Rusty’s Angels Sanctuary | Phoenix, AZ

A lovable Pit Bull mix named Louie needs a forever home

Rocky and his team of experts & volunteers help a shelter that’s devoted to providing a safe and loving environment for senior canines. As the team works to add two tiny houses to the property to help expand the facilities, Rocky cooks up a vlog plan to spread the word and enrolls Rusty’s Angels Sanctuary into PetSmart Charities’ National Adoption Weekend. Rocky makes it his mission to find a lovable Pit Bull mix named Louie a forever home. To help save another pet’s life, a professional woman who becomes smitten with Louie convinces her husband to adopt.

Rusty’s Angels is a 3 year old, non-profit organization dedicated to providing a safe and caring environment for senior and special needs canines. Through rescue, foster, adoption, education and hospice, RAS creates a secure nurturing home environment for them to live out their twilight years.Rusty’s Angels Sanctuary has a different dream than most shelters and recues – they want to build multiple one room homes that are approximately 200 square feet or less and fit dog kennels and storage. Emilee, founder of Rust’s Angels Sanctuary, also lives in the house and provides 24-hour care to all of the seniors there. All of their seniors are over the age of 10 and many retire here and live out whatever time they have left.When they do pass away, the folks at RAS hang a wind chime in their memory on a tree in front of the Sanctuary and lay their ashes to rest at its base.
