Sweet Cami Deserves a Fresh Start and Lots of Love

You’ve seen it on the news: animal hoarders. Well, poor Cami was a victim of a horrible hoarding situation, but we want to give Cami a fresh start to make up for all she’s been through in her short life. She was pretty sick with pneumonia recently, but is recovering nicely in a wonderful foster home. And Cami does have Valley Fever, which is common in the Southwestern United States. But her case is pretty mild, so she’s got a bright future ahead of her.

Cami is lucky enough to be in foster with one of our wonderful volunteers who reports that she is a very sweet girl with lots of potential. She’s had a rough go of it, so it’s taking her a little while to come out of her shell. But she’s making quick progress! She loves her daily walks and is good on a leash. She hasn’t quite figured out that whole cuddling thing yet, but she now lets her foster mom give her pets, which is a big improvement in a short amount of time for this girl. She was left outside in her previous life and got no attention at all. But she’s starting to enjoy the coziness of being indoors with a real family!

She enjoys hanging out with the other dogs — and doesn’t even mind the cats — in her foster home. She hasn’t figured out how to play with toys yet, but she’s getting there, with some help from her foster fur brother. She goes willingly in her crate and can even be left free to roam the house alone without causing any problems. She loves people, just needs to learn to trust them a little more. Her foster mom said Cami is a very easy girl to love and causes no problems at all. And she thinks that with patience from a loving family, she’ll be a cuddler in no time. And get this, she loves to play in the baby pool, how cute is that?

If you can give Cami a new start, please 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.

About Saving Paws

About Our Rescue Group...

"Saving Paws" rescue specializes in German Shepherd Dogs and Belgian Malinois. These are the two primary breeds used in military and law enforcement service worldwide. We also partner with other rescues and can assist in locating your perfect pet.

"Saving Paws" is a registered 501c3 non-profit corporation. All staff members are volunteers and are not compensated for their time and expenses. 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.

Donate to Our Rescue Group...

Saving Paws is a registered 501c3 not for profit corporation. All personnel are volunteers and are not compensated for their time and expenses. Donations of food, supplies and dollars always appreciated and allow us to help more dogs.

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.
