A safe harbor for German Shepherds and Belgian Malinois

Saving Paws Rescue Arizona is an all-volunteer, 501 (c)(3) charitable organization in Phoenix, Arizona. We are dedicated to providing veterinary care, evaluation and adoptive homes for German Shepherd and Belgian Malinois dogs who are left in pounds to await uncertain fate, are owner surrenders (such as divorce, death, etc.) or are from abusive or negligent situations. We help provide a safe harbor for these dogs that might otherwise be destroyed. Learn more about our rescue.

Love For Life Program

In March 2016, we started a program called "Love For Life." Dogs are placed in loving foster homes until their rehabilitation process is complete, or dependent upon circumstances, may remain in a forever foster home or the rescue center sanctuary until the end of their lives. We provide all the medical care, food, medicines and vaccinations while the forever foster parents provide a loving home.
