About The Lodge in Marana

It’s time for us to grow. The needs of dogs and people in the community are great and always expanding. While we have helped thousands over the years we can, and should, do more.

Now, we are limited by our current space but once we build The Lodge we’ll have more kennels, more space, more staff, and more programs to help the community.

To do that, we have purchased a 4+ acre parcel of land in Marana where we plan to build the new Sol Dog Lodge. The Lodge will be a convenient, one-stop oasis where needs will be met with loving kindness and the highest professional standards on a state-of-the-art, dedicated campus.

The campus will be located just east of Interstate 10 in the Town of Marana, convenient to Tucson, Oro Valley, and all points north and south. It will fit seamlessly into the natural environment of the area and create an atmosphere of peace and tranquility.

We’ll have open spaces for boarding, training, and frolicking. Our modular building construction has optimal flexibility and allows for consciously careful growth. “Green” elements have been planned to include solar energy and water recapture and reuse. Sol Dog Lodge will include:
  • A Full-Service Veterinary Facility with low-cost veterinary and dental care plus wellness programs
  • Kennel Suites for Boarding
  • Behavioral Assessment and Training
  • Dog Day Camp
  • Grooming
  • Dog Special Needs Area
  • An Atrium & Indoor Park
  • Education & Meeting Spaces
  • Specialty Products & Gifts Retail Store
  • Office Space – Including space for other rescue/adoption groups to share and conduct business and meet and greets
Outside, the Lodge will be an oasis in the desert where dogs and their human companions can enjoy walking paths, a Memorial Garden, a pond, and benches where they can enjoy the view and beautiful surroundings.
