Anyone looking for a tiny lion-dog with golden eyes? Gideon is a 2 yr old, 6.5 lb, sweet, tan chihuahua who is in a foster home with other small dogs and children and is thriving in this environment. He particularly likes having a chi buddy to chase, tackle, and to play ball. He is working on gaining some weight, perfecting his potty training, although accidents are seldom, and adjusting to being in a stable home. He barks usually only in times of distress, and is mostly quiet and unassuming. He fit right into his foster mom's dog pack the first day, like he had always lived there. He is one of the dogs flown here from New Mexico by Dog is my CoPilot and they all have a huge following. Lots of love has gone into Gideon finally being ready for adoption. He is neutered, microchipped, has had all his vaccinations. He is ready for his happy ending... Might u be it? If you are interested in adopting a CAWS pet, please fill out an online application at

About Community Animal Welfare Society

About Our Rescue Group...

Founded in 1992 the Community Animal Welfare Society ( CAWS) is one of the oldest no-kill animal rescues in Utah. Over the last 20 years CAWS, our fosters and supporters have saved thousands of lives including over 600 last this year. As the largest foster home network in the state of Utah we focus on high risk pets in need of additional care and rehabilitation

Come Meet Our Pets...

CAWS does not have a conventional shelter facility - all CAWS animals waiting for adoption are in foster homes. The number of animals we can help find new homes for is closely linked to how many CAWS foster homes are available. For additional information regarding how you, too, can become a foster, please see our fostering page located on our web site!

CAWS volunteers bring cats and dogs to the PetSmart near 2100 South and 300 West in South Salt Lake on the third and fourth weekends of each month

We are also at the Sugarhouse PETCO (1165 Wilmington Ave) the first Saturday of each month.

Our Adoption Process...

Since we make a lifetime commitment to any animal that comes into our program, we only adopt out animals to people in our area..
