Van Zandt County, Texas

About Our Rescue Group:

Who are we?
CLAW is a nonprofit organization powered by volunteers who are dedicated to finding loving and safe homes for homeless and abandoned domestic animals.

We are a not-for-profit, tax exempt 501(c)3 organization.

Our Mission

CLAW's mission is multi-faceted. First and foremost, it is to help domesticated animals find secure homes.

Additionally, CLAW works to educate the public on the importance of spaying/neutering, responsible pet ownership and the humane treatment of animals.


CLAW efforts are also focused on reducing the use of euthanasia in Van Zandt County and to provide the public with good information on how to report animal abuse.


Volunteers make it happen

CLAW volunteers share a love and compassion for animals and a desire to improve animals' lives in Van Zandt County.

Our rescued animals are fostered in volunteers' homes until that time that a forever home is found.

While in fostering, CLAW animals receive the necessary veterinary services to get them up to date on vaccinations, worming and spaying/neutering, heartworm tested and on preventative (dogs). Cats are tested for feline luekemia.

There are untold advantages of fostering, but most importantly, fostering allows the animal to be in a loving,nurturing environment that is safe and designed to ensure their continued healthy lifestyle.

Additionally, fostering allows our volunteers to work with the animals on their road to becoming a good citizen for their future families.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
