About Our Rescue Group

 

Pound Animals Worth Saving is a 501c3 non-profit charitable corporation. We are dedicated to saving the lives of  as many dogs and cats as we can from the county pounds, abusive environments, and owner surrenders.

P.A.W.S. (Pound Animals Worth Saving) Fur the Cause was founded in June, 2009 with volunteers from Maricopa County Animal Care and Control (MCACC). 

Many volunteers would transport the MCACC dogs to Kiwanis Park, Tempe to adoption events.  After the adoption events, we would bring the adoption money back to MCACC along with dogs that didn’t get adopted.  We then pulled our monies together and offered money to rescues to take the dogs that didn’t get adopted.  We also marketed those dogs until every single one of them found their forever loving home.

By 2010 we started rescuing separately from MCACC, and boarded them at a Northeast Mesa facility.  We became a non-profit in 2012 and as of this date we have rescued over 7,000 dogs from Arizona, California, New Mexico and Mexico.
