PAWS Shelter of Central Texas (PAWS) was founded in Kyle, Texas in 1986 as a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization providing care and love to homeless, abandoned, and abused animals in Central Texas. We are a no-kill shelter that believes in second chances! At PAWS, companion animals are given medical attention, care, and love for however long it takes for us to find them a loving home.
Once you make a decision to adopt we will ask you to fill out a Dog Adoption Application or a Cat Adoption Application and an adoption contract. Because we love every dog and cat in the shelter, we, quite naturally, screen applicants to help make sure that each pet goes to a permanent and loving home.
