Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Petite Paws Pet Advocates is a non-profit animal rescue group based in the Dallas/Fort Worth area of North Texas. We primarily rescue Pekingese and occasionally take other small breeds as space permits in our foster program.

Come Meet our Pets:

Dogs can be viewed online and occassionally at meet 'n greet events.

Our Adoption Process:

Petite Paws Pet Advocates requires a completed adoption application, reference checks, and home screening. Our adoption fee is 100.00 -- 250.00 which helps to defray a portion of the medical care costs related to rescuing the animals. This fee goes toward the vet costs for the animal to be completely vetted, which includes a physical examination, brought up-to-date on vaccinations, rabies vaccination, tested for heartworms, treatment if necessary, monthly heartworm prevention, spayed or neutered and any medications that the animal may need during their stay in foster care.

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 or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
