Paws in the City

About Paws in the City

Paws in the City offers dog and cat adoptions to veterans in Dallas through its partnership with Pets for Patriots, and will help them find their new best friends. The “no kill” organization is committed to ending the overpopulation, abuse and neglect of Dallas-area dogs and cats, and is dedicated to finding each pet in its care a loving, permanent home.

All animals in the care of Paws in the City are either boarded at kennels or in foster homes; the organization does not maintain a physical shelter. Available pets are brought to adoption events, which take place routinely throughout the DFW area.

Paws in the City welcomes monetary donations, as well as in-kind contributions of pet food, toys, cat litter, plastic airline-approved crates and other supplies; see their complete wish list for details. For a more hands on experience become one of their valued volunteers or pet fosters.
