PAWS also takes a role in rescue operations during a national disasters and we assist with large scale hording and cruelty cases.

We had a great experience adopting. They were very helpful and checked up on us to follow up after the adoption process. Very grateful for people like them who help animals find new owners. Our donkey Penny has found her forever home and is a very happy girl.

We adopted our amazing Great Dane "Duke" from Paws of Austin. I had a wonderful and blessed experience in doing so. I was given all the details about Duke before I drove from McKinney, TX to Austin to meet him. It was love at first sight. Prima was amazing and very helpful in every aspect. I wished I lived closer so I could become a foster home, but knowing me I would keep them all!

Paws of Austin, Great Dane Rescue, is an amazing organization. I adopted two Great Danes through them and was touched by the care and responsibility demonstrated by this organization toward the animals they rescue. The folks at Paws actually make a positive difference in the lives of animals and people they come in contact with and I will be forever grateful to them for bringing my two Danes into my life. Keep up the great work, Paws!

PAWS Of Austin is a wonderful organization. The care and dedication given to each animal is beyond measure. My experience with fostering and adopting my Lil'Bit was great. I highly recommend PAWS Of Austin to anyone looking to adopt or foster a pet. The love of animals shines like a beacon within this organization, from puppy to senior and beyond to Rainbow Bridge. Thank you for all that you do, PAWS Of Austin!

Paws of Austin is caring and loving with animals and spares no effort to make sure their adoptive homes are appropriate and provide excellent experiences for pets and owners. Prima and her associates commitment is ongoing like life insurance for pets working through Paws of Austin because her number one priority is for the animals. My Dane is surely the best dog ever but everybody should feel that way about their animal, I know Paws of Austin does.

We just got our 2nd great dane through Paws of Austin. It is such a wonderful experience working with Prima to find your next family member. Prima gives honest descriptions about the dogs, good and bad, so you know what you are getting into. Let's face it, with a dog as big as a dane you have to be sure of what you are getting into. She went out of her way with us to make sure that we found the perfect fit for our family and lifestye. She let us live with our new dane for 3 weeks before she even suggested we finalize the adoption. She truly cares about the dogs and finding homes that fit their personalities. She is also available any time after the adoption if you have any questions or need any help. We will be getting any new dogs from Prima from now on, not because we love danes-- we do-- but because we know that Prima truly cares about the dogs and also the families.
