PAWS is a great rescue they do amazing things. They give homeless and abandoned dogs medical care and foster them in loving volunteer homes until the perfect family comes along and adopts them. These people are angels and warriors.
I have fostered with PAWS for over 2 years. I've seen so many dogs saved from horrible situations that now have wonderful forever homes. I adopted a sweet boy from PAWS and will be forever grateful for him!
I first become familiar with Paws when I moved into Austin and wanted to find a way to give back to my community. Prima and her volunteers welcomed me with open arms and I quickly learned so much from them. Paws goal is to care ad help for animals. It is apparent in everything they do that the live what they preach.
Highly recommend PAWS for anyone looking to volunteer, get a dog or donate . You will not be disappointed.
I have a Dane that I love and wanted to help and organization that supports this wonderful breed. I have fostered for Paws and also pick up and transport dog that are coming into Paws from vagarious shelters around Texas.
Prima has fantastic knowledge of the breed and works in a professional and caring way with each dog.
There are many rescue groups that make it so complicated to adopt from them that dogs stay in the foster system way to long. None of that with Paws. A great organization supporting a great breed.
I was introduced to PAWS of Austin in May of 2015. My eyesight was failing in my senior years and I had to find homes for my horses and move closer to my daughter. All horses were successfully rehomed except for "Peanut". Before I could find him a home, he foundered in both front feet. No one would adopt him! Prima Mosy of PAWS rescue never hesitated and took him into her care even knowing she would have to provide months of support for this little miniature horse until he could heal.
She is actively taking applications now for his adoption! I am so thankful for this organization. They work tirelessly to find homes for hard to place animals like my miniature horse even though their main focus is to help the large dogs that end up in shelters with very limited time. These dogs, just as my Peanut, get a second chance to find a happy, loving forever home because of this rescue and their dedicated people!
Fostering for PAWS of Austin the last 5 years has been a blessing for me and my family. While certainly the lives of the animals and their adopters are enriched, so too are the lives of the volunteers. My children have grown to be better, more empathetic and responsible people through the caring of the dogs entrusted to us. I encourage you to consider signing up to foster on their site. This is a great organization that makes a difference in Austin and throughout Texas.
