The Phoenix Dog Magazine

Happy Springtime,

It’s so nice to see our desert light up with Spring! This is the sixth issue of the magazine, and we are so excited about the welcoming support from you, our readers, over the last year. 2017 has lots of fun changes in store: events, a home delivery option, local ads, and terrific story features are all coming your way!

This issue we thank one of the companies that positively impacts our community in a big way. The PetSmart Charities story may surprise you, and they have lots of new plans for 2017, too.

We get to see a close up of the Mesa PD K9 team, and learn about a sport designed for the feisty little hunting dogs. Studies prove dogs can have a positive effect on humans, and this issue you’ll read about dogs that help people with Alzheimer’s and other forms of Dementia. The topic is so fascinating we’ll do a Part Two in the May issue! Don’t miss the adorable little marsupials in the Critter Corner this month!

Your feedback has been heart-warming, and drives us. We’ve heard of new-found connections, so more pets and people can be helped; dogs that get new homes from the adoption pages, and dogs starting new sports that utilize their instincts. The Calendar continues to grow with great events. Be sure to check out our Facebook Events page for even more pet-related things to do!

Lots of new advertisers have joined the pack, and check out the new local Marketplace Ads where you will find businesses and services in your area. Our advertisers enable us to bring you these great stories, and we are so appreciative! Please visit and let them know you saw their ads in the Phoenix Dog Magazine!

We look forward to sharing the vibrant fabric of our pet community with you in 2017!

Enjoy the Springtime, and thanks for supporting the paws cause! Every dog is a Phoenix Dog!

Roxie signs off with lots of licks and rump wiggles!

Don’t Leave Me in the Car!

  • Never Leave Your Dog in a Parked Car
  • Parked cars quickly trap the sun’s heat. Even on a day when it’s 70 degrees outside, the temperature inside a car with all the windows closed can hit 90 degrees in just 10 minutes.
  • On a hot day, the temperature inside a closed car can shoot as high as 116 degrees in the same amount of time.
  • Leaving the windows open a crack doesn’t eliminate the danger of heatstroke or death.
  • Animals can sustain brain damage or even die from heatstroke in just 15 minutes.

If you see a dog in a hot car do this:

  • Stay with the dogs until help arrives
  • Record information about the vehicle (make, model. Color and license plate number)
  • Alert the management of the business
  • Call 911
