PAWS is an awesome group! They graced me with my Dane, a sweet 7 year old black beauty mantle dane named Lucie, who had been bred...and bred...and bred...
Enough said.
Until I met my Lu, I honestly thought that, even 3 years after my other sweet dane had died, I would never find another Dane who could steal. my. heart.
It happened. I am so glad it to me. And my Lucie.
She deserves to live her golden years being pampered. PAWS helped to match her with me - and I can promise this hard-working and dedicated group that the match was a perfect one. Paws down!

Paws of Austin changed my life. It started with a courtesy listing of a 4 year old male Great Dane with the most beautiful amber eyes. His foster chose us to be his forever home and he is my very best friend, my angel, and my partner as a pet therapy team that visits hospitals, schools, nursing homes, etc.
It continued when we decided 2 years later to adopt another and met 6 different Danes. None of them felt right and I never felt any pressure to adopt, just support to continue trying. We waited another 6 months and it turned out #7 was the one. We adopted a beautiful 4 month old puppy who is now a source of much laughter and love (and torment to our older Dane - but he loves her too).
They are always a source of knowledge, support, and encouragement. They take on the hard cases of abuse and neglect. They also help place Danes for families that just cant keep them anymore (even if we disagree with their reasons for giving them up).
I know that my next dog will be a Great Dane. And I know that Prima and Courtney will help me find the perfect one for our family.

I have adopted 3 dogs from Paws of Austin. One of the dogs, Mozart was rescued along with his 7 litter mates and his mother from the shelter. The owners of the dogs that still reside in Austin still get together every year for their birthday and every year , PAWS attends. I can also call Prima, the head of PAWS every time I am concerned about my dogs, she has walked me through obstruction surgery and Bloat. I have worked with this organization for~ 8 years and there could no one more deserving, they are amazing!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I first met Prima when I was looking for a Standard Poodle rescue. I was notified when 9 ten day old puppies and their mother was dropped off at Town Lake Animal Center and rescued by PAWS of Austin. I met and fell in love with Mozart, my 70pd Poodle. She encouraged everyone that adopted the puppies to keep up through a yahoo group and we have. We just celebrated their 5th birthday with the annual Poodle Party which Prima has never missed. She is always there for questions and support and we love her! This is a top notch organization with a fearless caring leader. Laura and Mozart

We adopted a dog from Paws of Austin and were very honored to personally meet Prima Mosi. They were very professional when considering us, my husband and I, as candidates to adopt. We took it as a very good sign of a responsible rescue organization. What they do for animals and people is breathtaking. We are getting ready to become monthly donors. We are very lucky to come across Paws of Austin.

I can't say enough about how amazing this group is. Prima and all involved make me proud to say I know them. I rescued my 1st PAWS Dane in 2003. Through the years I've had the honor of calling 6 PAWS Danes family, and currently 3 members of our pack are from PAWS, the most recent coming to us just last month. Prima does this for the love of the animals, and I respect her so very much for that. She has an ability to match the dog and the person in such a way that when she says there's one that needs our family, I say when and where do you want to meet. Whether you want to foster, adopt, or just support, this is an organization I highly recommend you becoming a part of. I am lucky and blessed to say I am.
