Have you ever seen such a beautiful smile?! Meet Eli, a two-year-old lab mix that is currently residing with one of our boarders while he waits for his forever family. He is an amazingly friendly dog - super energetic and ready for a lifetime of fun with his family. Eli plays well with other dogs, so if you already have a fur baby at home, Eli may be just the best friend they've been asking you for! Seriously, how has no one scooped up this gorgeous boy yet?! If you can't adopt Eli but you have the availability to foster him, that would be a great start. He loves to play and has loads of energy, so being at the boarding facility is not an optimal situation for Eli. He'd love to share your home, shower you with affection and show you how to enjoy life! Contact us today about meeting Eli - we know you are going to love him as much as we do!

About Paws In The City

About Our Rescue Group...

Paws In The City® is committed to supporting the City of Dallas Animal Shelter by hosting off-site adoptions for the dogs and spay/neuter education and fundraising through specific outreach programs.

Paws In The City is a nonprofit, 501 (c) 3 organization committed to ending overpopulation, abuse and neglect of Dallas dogs and cats . We are an all volunteer organization with no paid staff.

Paws In The City is committed to the following goals:

 Rescuing homeless dogs and cats from the City of Dallas animal shelters by sponsoring off-site adoptions to find these abandoned animals terrific, loving homes…often many of these wonderful pets are days away from being euthanized simply because there are not enough homes... a tragedy we are determined to end;

 Providing a comforting and positive environment for adoptions;

 Providing medical care to neglected, abused, and injured animals through our outreach efforts;

 Educating the public on responsible pet ownership; and

 Supporting spay and neuter programs…the simple, common sense solution to ending the number of unwanted dogs and cats on our streets and in our city shelters.

Why we do it

Our Adoption Process...

Requirements to Adopt a Dog in Foster Care: Before adopting, we require an approved pre-adoption application, an interview, a home check, a signed adoption contract and an adoption fee (dogs=$200 / puppies=$250 / cats=$125) to cover the animal’s health-related expenses and boarding while in our care. All of our animals are spayed or neutered, are current on shots, tested and de-wormed.
