ZEPPELIN (Before and a couple months after)
Bait Dog, severely emaciated, broken jaw that was never taken care of properly and left to heal on it's own (that's why his toungue hangs out--we think he looks cute anyway!!)
ZORAH (BEFORE)~ This little girl was found left in a backyard (filled with junk )of an abandoned house.
Zorah (after some treatment, love, and tender care). Now she is in a forever home!!
GREMLIN~ We were asked to step in and rescue this little last year. He had a huge gash on his side and has a broken leg that will required surgery/pin. He had 20-30 staples in his side to try to close up the wound. Please share and click on the link to donate to his care and the care of many of our dogs who require surgery and a lot of care. He was only 3 lbs., 2 oz. so cute!
Gremlin today~ (UPDATE: Adopted and in his forever home)
KARMA~ Had an embedded collar around her neck which caused this large gash. The collar was extremely small and became embedded in her neck. The Collar had to be cut off. She has received treatment and is healing nicely.
UPDATE!! Karma has been adopted and is enjoying life with her new forever mommy!! She is getting trained as a therapy dog!!
Scooter~ (little 2 lb. pup)~ We intervened to help this little guy. We found him at Petsmart while we were doing adoptions and convinced the owner to release him to us so he could get medical care. He had NO use of his back legs at all. After several cold laser therapies, Scooter is now standing and walking on his own! YAY!
Scooter was adopted, then returned a little while ago. He is currently in foster care and recently underwent surgery to straighten his leg (it was turning out badly and now it has been corrected). He is recovering well and will soon be ready for adoption.
Scooter when we first rescued him~
Scooter needed surgery to correct the outward turning of his leg. This is common among Corgis. Isn't he cute? You cn see his leg turning quite a bit.
Scooter post-surgery (2/2014)
We hold adoption events at the Petsmart location on 281/Bitters every Sat. and Sun. from 12-4PM. We are also at the New Braunfels Petsmart a couple of Sundays a month from 1-4. Stop on by to see our wonderful dogs and get more information.
Our adoption fees range from $125-$200 for Adult dogs and $150-$200 for puppies.
Adoption fee includes microchip, spay/neuter, rabbies Vaccine/certificate/tag and all shots. You can also find us on petfinder.com (look for Pause for Paws under the animal welfare organizations) or contact Sharal at 210-378-5373 for more information.
If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs please contact us. We charge an adoption fee and an application and interview with an adoption counselor is required. We do vet checks (if there are other pets in the family) and home/fence checks. All our pets are in excellent condition and have been loved by the members and the workers at the vet clinic where some are boarded or by their fosters in foster homes. If the adoption does not work out, we gladly accept the pet back. If it is within the first week, the adoption fee is happily refunded.
We expect our dogs to be part of the family and not left in someone's backyard or given away to another person so we are very careful where they are placed. An adoption counselor will talk with you and go over your application. Sometimes a home visit may be requested as well. We want our dogs to find their forever homes and be well cared for and loved for the rest of their lives.
RIP Sweet Ranger! We received the sad news that Ranger passed away from Kidney Failure on Tuesday (5/6). He was a Paws dog who found his forever home 5 years ago. His mom said he was greatly loved and will be greatly missed. Run free Ranger!!! We love you!!!!
