More about this rescue

We are located in Lago Vista, Texas, which is about 30 miles northwest of Austin. We save the lives of stray and abandoned animals, primarily in Lago Vista and Point Venture (a nearby community).

Our shelter, Lifelong Friends Pet Adoptions, was built in 1997 when a few committed people in Lago Vista took action, impassioned by their belief that all animals deserve care, respect, and a life free from fear, hunger, and pain. The dream for a true no-kill sanctuary for lost, abandoned, and rejected dogs and cats became a reality when these dedicated individuals built Lago Vista PAWS Animal Center. To better reflect who we are and what we do, we changed our name to Lifelong Friends Pet Adoptions on our 10th anniversary

Through our small shelter, over 5000 animals have found loving, forever homes and nearly 1000 more have been reunited with their original owners. Other animals have found permanent safe haven at our shelter. We are very different from most shelters, even those that call themselves “no-kill.” Many of those facilities find ways around the no-kill philosophical mandate. But to us, every life is a precious gift that deserves respect, and we do everything we can to save the animals that come to us.

We have chosen the most challenging and expensive of all rescue work by sheltering animals that come in off the streets. We are responsible for the basic medical (spay/neuter, vaccines, etc.). In addition, we treat the animals who are sick, injured, and/or malnourished.

We believe that all of our dogs and cats are adoptable. Therefore, our volunteers work tirelessly to find loving, forever homes that are a good match for each and every one of them. We do not discriminate based on breed, age, or special needs.

Most of our funding comes from donations, fundraisers, and grants. But, as you can imagine, money is always in short supply – especially these days.

Our staff consists of dedicated volunteers, most of whom work full-time jobs outside the shelter. We contribute our love, our time, and a large proportion of the money needed to keep the center afloat and make sure the animals are well cared for, happy, and healthy.

We are always in need of volunteers and donations.
