Who We Are

Who We Are & What We Do

Pause for Paws Incorporated is a 501 (C)(3) non-profit, foster-home based shelter in San Antonio, TX. 

Our mission is to rehabilitate and rehome San Antoni's abanconed street dogs.  We give them all necessary medical care, loving foster-homes for socialization/training and finally wonderful forever homes.  We are a no-kill rescue specializing in taking those dogs who need us the most.


Please help us to continue our mission.  Your donations go towards medical care, vaccinations, spay/neuter, emergency care and supplies.  We can't do this without the support of our wonderful donors, fosters and volunteers! 

Our dogs and all of us at Pause for Paws...THANK YOU !

We take in many special need cases that others may not.

We are a no-kill rescue meaning we care for our dogs until they are adopted.  This can take anywhere from 2 weeks to 2-3 years!

If you decide to donate, your contribution pays for items such as:

puppy and adult dog foods, prescription foods, medicines, monthly flea and heartowrm preventatives, yearly shots, maintenance care, etc. 

While you visit us please consider making a donation or shopping through  Amazon Smile
