Here’s how to get started with the dog adoption process:

    • Get an application for a dog. *Please note that all household members, including roommates, children and other dogs, will need to do a meet and greet before the adoption process can be completed. It is recommended to fill out an application in advance if you intend to drive a long distance.
    • Visit one of our PetSmart adoption locations in Austin or San Marcos.
    • Visit our shelter in Kyle during business hours.
    • Email us at to set an appointment to meet a specific dog.
    • PAW UP Training Program Thanks to a generous grant from The Petco Foundation, we are able to provide personalized, in-home behavioral and training assistance to new dog adopters, if the need should arise.
    • Or just Lend a Paw and sponsor a dog with a one-time donation.
