In 2012, Trisha Houlihan, a volunteer at the local county animal control shelter, was saddened by the volume of German Shepherd Dogs being listed for euthanasia. She recognized there were very little resources for the rescue of this breed, so she created a place for them – Saving Paws Rescue Arizona, a place that would be a safe harbor for German Shepherd and Belgian Malinois Dogs. Saving Paws Rescue Arizona is an all-volunteer, 501 (c)(3) charitable organization that is dedicated to providing veterinary care, evaluation and adoptive homes for German Shepherd and Belgian Malinois dogs who are left in shelters to await an uncertain fate, are owner surrenders, or are from abusive or negligent situations.

Funded in 2018
How we help: 

A grant from The Grey Muzzle Organization will help Saving Paws Rescue AZ develop a Seniors For Seniors program. Residing in Arizona, Saving Paws is surrounded by retirement communities with many active senior residents looking for a hiking partner, a cuddling companion or even a foster houseguest as they spend their winters in the Valley of the Sun. Through collaborative efforts with neighboring senior dog clubs, community centers, and rescue volunteers, they are looking to place senior dogs with mature adults, for either permanent adoption, long- or short-term fostering, or hospice care.
