In response to national and local government guidelines and CDC recommendations, PAWS Shelter of Central Texas is temporarily changing our methods of operation. Due to the limited space available at our Kyle, TX shelter location, we have implemented an appointment-based adoption policy.
Beginning March 17, 2020, our Kyle location will be closed to walk-in foot traffic and limited access for volunteers, until further notice. If you are interested in adopting, please complete a dog adoption application or cat adoption application. Once approved, an appointment will be set for you to come in to meet with and adopt your new pet.
For the time being, our Dripping Springs location is operating as normal. Our hours have been changed to 12:00pm-5:00pm seven days a week. We are asking that only small groups of people (5 or less) visit at one time. Additionally, please help us keep our staff healthy and able to work by practicing good hygiene and staying home if you are not feeling well or have been exposed to someone who is not feeling well. We also ask that you wear a mask when visiting.
PAWS will not be holding any offsite dog adoption events during this time. Our offsite cat adoption availability will be determined by the stores in which they are located (e.g. Petco, Petsmart). All other events have been postponed.
PAWS is also asking for community support in the form of foster care. In the event that we are required to temporarily shut down operations, we will need to send as many of our pets into foster homes as we can. If you are interested in signing up to be on our emergency foster list, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Consequently, we are limiting intake at this time and asking for people to hold on to any found or owned animals. If you are unable to do so, reach out to your community for assistance with fostering until this situation is resolved. We can offer crates and some supplies if needed.
As a non-profit, we are still in constant need of donations. We are asking that physical donations be left in the gazebo area at our Kyle location. Monetary donations can be made by clicking here or mailed to PO Box 695, Dripping Springs, TX, 78620. Please know that we are extremely grateful and it pains us to not be able to say thank you in person.
We thank you for your understanding, patience, and support in this precarious time. Stay well.
