No Kill Pima County (NKPC) is an all-volunteer, grassroots community nonprofit. Since 2012 NKPC has implemented strategies to build and support a community that saves the savable pets. Initiatives have focused on keeping pets out of shelters, supporting those in shelters, and promoting adoption and rescue efforts. Currently, efforts are aimed at offering options to owners and “finders” of stray dogs that enable pets to stay with their families and in their community, reserving shelter space for those who truly have no other options.

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.
