Who We Are
Animal Guardian Network (AGN), founded in 2009, is a 501(c)3 non-profit animal healing sanctuary providing neglected animals life-saving care and rehabilitation. Our sanctuary also gives special needs animals care for life. Animal Guardian Network operates solely through grants, donations,  and General Store sales. No Government funding is received. Please consider making a donation to our healing ranch & sanctuary. We really need your continued support. Your donation helps end suffering.  Visit our Sanctuary and Healing center page to see how donation funds are used.
Healing Heart Chapel
The heart knows no difference between losing an animal companion, and losing a human companion. We hurt deeply because we love deeply. The process of grieving for a pet should be no different than mourning the death of a human being. The difference lies in the value that is placed on a pet by family, and by society as a whole. The Healing Heart Chapel will offer animal lovers sanctuary. A place of peace where comfort, and support can be found throughout the grieving process, and beyond. A place where loved ones will never be forgotten because every life matters.  Click here to view the Healing Heart Chapel page.
Adoptions
Our process is unique in that a commitment of time is required in order to facilitate the best match. This may mean several visits to our facility to spend time with the available dogs. We will also require a home check prior to any adoption. This process has proven to be highly effective in facilitating excellent matches, less stressful adoptions and more happy beginnings. Please view our adoption page where wonderful pets are waiting.

Xena, an angel loved so deeply and so completely is honored in our Healing Heart Chapel. The hearts of countless people broke when the news of Xena's passing was shared. But none as broken as that of Xena's own angels, Rachelle and John Steele. We truly hope this special recognition and celebration of your love will help fill some of the sadness with peace. Xena's Tribute Angels were loving sponsored by Diane Windham and Hillary Edelen.

Meet Dusty, the newest formerly unwanted soul at AGN.

Dusty was thrown out of a car on the road between Phoenix and Kingman. Thankfully, a car who was behind him stopped. This poor little dog was running after the car he was tossed from before he started running off the side of the road. Luckily they were able to catch him.

Dusty was taken to our vets in Cave Creek for treatment. Thankfully, this young baby boy sustained no physical injuries from his traumatic ordeal. We had him neutered, vaccinated, micro chipped and a visit to the spa.

If you are able to help sponsor Dusty's care and medical expenses you can donate online at www.animalguardiannetwork.org.

Carolyn SwartzThere is always the sad possibility of a domestic family or friend dispute that led to a disturbed person getting even with someone by dumping their loved dog - there may be some owner in tears wanting to know where this cutie is now.

Annual check-up day at AGN's sanctuary. Some of the pups received a gold star for good behavior. Others, well no gold stars for naughtiness.

Special thanks to Dr. Drummond and Adriana for taking care of our residents in the least stressful way possible.

Just over 2 years ago a 10 year Shiba named Tyler was taken by his family to a county kill shelter in Tucson to be euthanized because he had been unable to use his back legs for several days. Several days in excruciating pain dragging himself around.

We were notified and immediately agreed to take him. Tyler was transported to us where an emergency MRI was scheduled. 2 discs in his lower spine were ruptured and putting pressure on his spinal cord. Surgery was immediately scheduled with a neurologist.

Post surgery Tyler was transported to our sanctuary where over the next year his recovery, rehab and therapy would take place.

Today Tyler runs and plays with a joyful heart. He loves to play ball and explore the play yards with his friends.

From paralyzed to playful pup; a healing miracle at AGN.

Gulia Ismailova-AdamsOne of my dogs had same surgery,twice! It was really expensive so I cant blame their family if they cannot afford it. Most of the vets do not even offer payment plans,they expect you to pay $7000 at the time of surgery.

Eric SartorisWas the back condition congenital, or caused by an injury, or what? Regardless, I am always in awe of your compassion and dedication. You're amazing.

Trace ConkleI can understand if the family didn't have the financial means to help this poor boy but that doesn't make it any easier to accept. SO glad you repaired and rehabbed him so his quality of life has returned to happiness :)

Mark PerlmutterThanks for saving this guy, I have chronic disc issues, imparting my ability to walk, and I can only imagine how sad I would be if my family abandoned me like they did him. People are the worst, but his story is an inspiration to me. What is is current housing status?

Helen LocherIf you love your shiba so much, you will do anything for him to be able to get his surgery. It is no fun being in a lot of back pain. I am living in a lot of back pain myself and will be needing surgery.

Maryann BallengerJust like people. ( I had back surgery at 29 and others over the years.) My girl( Shiba) had knee surgery, shots, VOMs, acupuncture, Chinese meds and arthritis meds, seizure meds. But if that day comes I will help her cross. I can't bear to see her in pain. God bless you Carrie and the others that help take care of God's wonderful creations.

Lera Juno KwartnikI went through this with my shiba when he was 10years old...he lived an amazing healthy life until he was 17. This surgery was expensive and scary but worth it in the end. It was horrible when he was in pain, and we didn't know what was wrong for several days even though we had visited a vet immediately...we changed vets and problem was discovered and surgery was scheduled. ❤️ he recovered quickly and was just as happy as he always was. :-)

Robert HeaneyI am at severe risk of paralysis myself due to a collapsing lower spine constricting upon my spinal cord, it makes for one scary looking x-ray for sure. I'm surprised this can be fixed on a dog, my outcome is not optimistic but as long as I follow what my body tells me I feel I'll be okay, and at my age I'm under advisement to go on disability and absolutely for the most part not to work. O well.
