After Being Left Chained to a Bench, Vixen is Ready for a New Life 2-year-old, large, female Belgian Malinois mix. Good with other dogs: Yes Good with children: Unknown Good with cats: Unknown Yep, you read that right. Someone left Vixen chained to a bench overnight at Maricopa County Animal Care and Control. But Vixen isn’t letting her past get her down. This girl is a very happy and sweet young lady. Vixen is a pretty big gal, although we’re working to put some more meat on her bones, and she will need some structure and obedience training. But she is very sweet and eager to please. And how can you not fall in love with that face! We don’t know if she’s good with children, but with her large size, it’s likely that she’d be better with older children who can understand that she hasn’t had the proper training to learn not to jump yet. She’s only two so she’s got plenty of time to learn lots of commands! She’s a very active girl and will need a patient and dedicated family to help her learn how to be the best young lady she can be. She’s very smart, so obedience training should go smoothly. And we recommend an active family as she’ll need plenty of mental and physical stimulation. As always, if you are interested in a Saving Paws dog, you must fill out our online application to get the approval process started. We will only schedule meet and greets with an approved application. All staff members are volunteers and are not compensated for their time and expenses. Many juggle family and full-time careers while volunteering at Saving Paws. Please be patient, as sometimes it takes up to 5 days to process an application.

Donations and adoption fees offset the high cost of veterinary care, food, boarding and numerous other expenses. By adopting from “Saving Paws", you become our partner in the rescue. You can make a difference in both financial contribution and working to save deserving animals. Adopting a rescue dog saves two lives. The K-9 friend that you adopted and another that can be brought in by the space created. Open your heart and adopt today.
"Saving Paws" primarily obtains dogs from local "High Kill" shelters. We are often there last hope. Our adoptions have gone on become service dogs, search and rescue dogs, sport dogs, AKC title holders and of course cherished family pets and protectors. Please consider a rescue dog and give these wonderful animals a second chance.

Come Meet Our Pets...
Currently our resources do not allow one central facility for our operations. We have many dogs in foster care and board others at the Canine Country Club. They are located in Phoenix, Arizona. All adoptions are by appointment. We do our best to be available and accommodate your schedule. However, being volunteer, we ask for your patience and assistance in all matters. A minor inconvenience is a small price to pay for helping a dog in need.
"Saving Paws" also participates in numerous adoption events year around. We will post these to our website and to this venue as they are scheduled.
Our Adoption Process...
"Saving Paws" works individually with each potential adopter to assure a good match and successful placement. The specific adoption process can vary and includes:
* Telephone and or email consultation. * "Meet & Greet" with selected animals. We request that all family members and pets be present. * Adoption application and reference check. * Home visit * Completion of the adoption process. * Any additional follow up or assistance required.
Adoption fees and donations offset the extremely high cost of veterinary care, food, boarding and numerous other expenses.
