Knows It's Fun to do Good!

It's Fun To Do Good and Desert Paws Rescue knows it!

The purpose of Desert Paws Rescue is to rescue, rehabilitate (when necessary) and place domestic animals into stable homes, to educate the public about the responsibilities of pet ownership in an attempt to alleviate the problem of unwanted pets, and to build public awareness about the human-animal bond and its benefits to society.


The mission of Desert Paws Rescue is to provide a new beginning for unwanted cats & dogs who might otherwise be euthanized. We will provide a safe, loving foster environment for rehabilitation and medical needs, with the ultimate goal of placing them in their new forever homes. We will educate the public on the importance of spaying and neutering and how to choose the right pet for their family in order to reduce the population of unwanted pets in our community. We will do this in a compassionate, friendly and professional manner ensuring a rewarding experience for our adopters and to further benefit the animals in our care.

It's Fun To Do Good and Surfing with Nixon knows it!

Surfing with Nixon is a nonprofit organization that gives Autistic Kids in Arizona a chance to surf as a form of water therapy. Surfing gives these kids sensory input and teaches them to control their bodies in and out of the water at the same time bringing families together who are dealing with the same similar experiences.

My son, Nixon, was born with Cerebral Palsy and Autism and for the last four years, he has been on a waiting list for physical therapy, horse therapy, and swimming therapy. Therapy is essential for children with Autism. So two years ago I bought a season pass to Big Surf and he loved it, to where he didn’t even want to get out when we were done. After this experience I looked into surfing events in California, again being told there is a three-year waiting list. This led me to talk with some friends about doing an event here at Big Surf Waterpark in Tempe, AZ. The event brings in professional surfers from Hawaii and California and they donate their time to help with and teach these children. They teach them how to surf while giving them valuable therapy that is very much needed. I can tell you the positive results of water therapy are amazing.

Please join us in supporting our Fifth Annual Surfing with Nixon event scheduled for August 24, 2018, from 12 pm to 8 pm, at Big Surf Water Park in Tempe, AZ. I can’t wait to see you there and meet you.
