Paw Placement:
A Helping Hand for Pets

8000+ Lives Saved Since 2002

Paw Placement is a non-profit 501(c)(3), no-kill organization.  Our mission is to reduce euthanasia of dogs and cats through rescue, adoption, and education about responsible pet ownership.

Our cats are all in loving foster homes or at our adoption center at the PetSmart in Scottsdale near the intersection of 90th & Shea. We save as many cats and kittens as our fosters and volunteers can handle, from mothers with litters of energetic kittens to senior cats who are just looking for a forever home to retire. We know all of their personalities very well and work diligently to ensure we find the purrfect forever home for each one.

Adopt a Cat or Dog from PawPlacement

Paw Placement is an all-breed rescue, which means that we save everything from Pitbulls to Papillons! Our dogs are all in loving foster homes, we don't have a boarding facility. You can rest assured that every one of them is safe and loved until we find the perfect forever home. We know our pups very well, and we do everything we can to make sure they go to a home that is correctly equipped to handle the unique needs of each particular dog.

Would you like to cuddle with kittens or party with puppies? We can help! We are always looking for new volunteers and fosters. Adoption event volunteers help by watching over and cleaning up after our animals during adoption events. Kitty caretakers look after the kitties and give them love during non-event hours. If you love cuddles and don't mind cleaning up a mess or two, sign up! Dog & Cat fosters are the selfless volunteers who do the initial life-saving by bringing homeless pets into their own homes and teaching them to love and trust people. It is challenging, but incredibly fulfilling.

Donate to PawPlacement We charge an adoption fee, but those fees don't come close to covering our veterinarian, food, and supply bills. We rely on people like you to help us continue our mission to provide safe and loving homes to as many homeless pets as possible. We appreciate every donation, whether it be monetary, pet food, pet supplies, cleaning supplies, towels, or blankets. We accept monetary donations online through our website or Facebook page. We also accept donations during any of our adoption events. 

Our Adoptive Difference:   

We work with adopters to find their perfect animal matches and conduct only quality adoptions that best fit the needs of the animals and people.
