Since PAWS Shelter of Central Texas opened its doors to care for the abandoned and stray animals of Hays County and Central Texas over a quarter century ago, the area has experienced explosive growth in both human and animal populations. Today, the shelter is faced with an ever-growing capacity strain. An incredibly generous PAWS supporter donated 39 beautiful acres on which to build a larger facility.

This future Hill Country Shelter location is situated on Highway 165 between Dripping Springs and Blanco, Texas. Here, PAWS envisions a full service shelter to ultimately include a complete campus of services for abandoned and stray animals including walking trails, a memorial garden, individual dog runs and training fields.

It’s happening! See our progress below.
