We would like to introduce you to our newest rescue, Sadie. She came to us from the Maricopa Humane Society. We feel she will make an excellent family member to the right home. Do you have room in your home for Sadie?
** We feel it is best that Sadie go to a home with no small animals. She has high prey drive and has attacked a small dog.
If you are interested in Sadie, please fill out our adoption application by clicking here >>
Please feel free to respond to this email if you have any questions, or you can call me at (480) 215-4851.
A huge shout out to Doreena Weigert for going on a wild goose chase to locate and pick up Sadie. And another big shout out goes to Crystal Melby for being Sadie's foster mommy! You both are amazing and loved. Thank you!

Dear RSVC Members
A special meeting of your board of directors was held on Saturday, October 7 at 3:30 PM. The agenda for this meeting was to act upon the resignation of Marge Mehagian from the office of President and to fill any resulting board vacancies.
The board members accepted Marge’s resignation as president and filled resulting vacancies as specified in the By-laws.
Individuals appointed to fill the vacant officer and board positions as follow:
Vice President, Vicki May assumed the office of president leaving a vacancy in the office of Vice-President.
Marla Molvin accepted the office of Vice-President, leaving a vacancy in the office of secretary.
Marian Kirkpatrick accepted the office of Secretary, leaving a vacancy on the Board.
Jude Nau accepted the open board position.
We thank Marge for her 20+ years of guiding this club and are happy to announce she will continue on the board as an Ex-Officio Board Member.
Last Friday night, the RSVC Rescue hosted a booth at the #LovePup Family Fest at Vertuccio Farms in Mesa.
We were one of 32 dog rescues participating! We met so many people!
Thank you!! Thank you!!!! Tom and Ann Lundquist brought their rescue, sweet Vienna to the event. Once Vienna warmed up she was the star of the show! Her true calling is on a table. She was saying hello to everyone, letting everyone hug on her and pet her and showed off her obedience tricks. Vienna came to the RSVC Rescue and found her forever home with Tom, Ann and their Vizsla Ginger. Thank you for helping and sharing Vienna Tom and Ann!
Thank you so much to the sweet Nancy Holmes and her super cute and well behaved Callie! She took her turn on the table too, and was of course a people magnet also! Callie did so very well. She had a couple unattended youngsters messing with her and she handled it was amazing tolerance. She also really enjoyed our booth neighbors who had some kittens.
Overall, this was a great event! A lot of people learned about the breed and our rescue!
Thanks to all!
and the Rio Salado Vizsla Rescue Team
