How To Help
PAWS of Austin would like to thank all our adopters, fosters and donors. We cannot do this rescue work without your help and support. The more help we get from you, the more animals we can save.

You can help us continue the work we do, to provide quality care for the many homeless pets that are brought to us, continue to increase public awareness regarding animal welfare issues and help in prevention of animal cruelty.

There are many ways you can help and we believe that whether you are a private business, a veterinarian, a corporation or an individual, there is a positive role you can all play in assisting animals in need.

PAWS of Austin is a 501 C (3) non-profit organization. We rely on the community for help and support. Your donations allow us to continue the work we do - Save animal's lives.

We would like to continue to provide quality care for the many homeless pets that are brought to us, as well as increase public awareness and prevent cruelty to all animals, but we cannot do this work without your help and support.

Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution. Your donation will help us provide necessary veterinary care for the animals we rescue. It will make a difference in how many animals we can rescue, especially those with special needs.

When making a donation, you may request that your $$ will be used for a specific project, or it may be used to sponsor a dog with special needs. Either way, your $$ will make a difference.

Donation of items
Our needs are diversified. We accept pet supply such as food, bedding, treats, crates, blankets and towels. We also accept donations such as household items and vehicles.

You can donate your car, truck, trailer, boat or cycle to benefit PAWS. We will make arrangements to conveniently and quickly pick-up your vehicle donation at no cost to you. We will handle the title transfer requirements and provide you with a tax deductible donation receipt. Each donated vehicle is resold at public auction and the revenue is used to fund cruelty investigations and veterinary care for abused and neglected animals.

Foster A Dog
Another way you can help is by fostering a dog. The more fosters we have, the more dogs we can save. To become a foster family, please fill out our foster application.

Sponsor A Dog

Choosing a rescue dog to sponsor is a great opportunity for those who cannot adopt or foster.

The average cost to care for each rescue dog is approximately $280 (vaccinations, spay/neuter, microchip, heartworm test, HW/flea preventative and of course food). Many of our dogs need additional medical care such as Heartworm treatment, dental care, mange treatments and emergency surgeries. Cost of veterinary care does add up and we rely on caring people to help us fund these treatments. If you would like to become a sponsor, you can make monthly donations, or you can go to our Special Need page and sponsor a specific dog in need.
