PAWS Shelter of Central Texas (PAWS) was founded in 1986 as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. We are a No-Kill shelter that provides care and love to homeless, abandoned, and abused animals in Central Texas. PAWS is located just south of the Austin in Kyle. At PAWS, companion animals are given medical attention, care, and love for however long it takes for us to adopt them into a loving home. The majority of our pets are rescued from municipal shelters, but we accept owner surrendered pets as well. Our shelter is open seven days a week for adoption. We also have several offsite locations offering cat and dog adoptions.
We pride ourselves on our ability to commit to the lives of each animal that we take in. PAWS pets are offered enrichment, training, and socialization throughout their stay with us.
