we are southwest of the Ak-Chin Indian Res. I think Gila River is mostly north of the city of Maricopa...
We do get quite a few abandoned dogs out here, usually we take them to Pinal County Animal Care and Control in Casa Grande, every once in a while we can get a no kill shelter to take one in.
Last spring someone dumped a mother and 5 puppies at the canal behind our property, they were "kind" enough to dump a full bag of Ole Roy dog food with dogs. We managed to catch them all and they went to Arizona Animal Welfare League (where SWMBO works) and were all adopted out.
Sadly, many of the dogs we find are parvo or distemper positive when we find them...
