PAWS Shelter of Central Texas

About PAWS Shelter of Central Texas

PAWS Shelter of Central Texas (PAWS) partners with Pets for Patriots to help Central Texas area veterans adopt companion dogs and cats.

Operating since 1986, this shelter gives sanctuary for homeless, abused and abandoned animals throughout central Texas, providing medical care and socialization until they are adopted. As part of its commitment to animal rehabilitation and responsible pet ownership, PAWS provides behavioral assessments for all animals in its charge, conducts humane education programs in area schools and launched its Cell Dog Program, which engages local inmates to train select dogs in preparation for their adoption.

PAWS Shelter of Central Texas welcomes monetary and in-kind donations; see their complete wish list for details. For a more hands on experience become one of their valued volunteers or fosters.

Adoption Fees Include:

30 days of ShelterCare Pet Insurance
