Dogs & Puppies in Foster

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 adoption@pawsshelter.org 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.
