Adoption Stories

We have saved more than 1,100 homeless dogs in our first year of operation!  We work to rescue, rehabilitate & rehome abandoned & abused pets in Central Texas & to achieve NO-KILL status for all animal rescues & shelters in our area.

We are so happy for Our Adopted Dogs!


Bernie was 1 of a litter of 4 pups abandoned in rural Central Texas. HOT-PAWS first fostered the pups until we could get them on a transport to Spokane, where we knew they could find forever homes.

And Bernie found his forever home with Gretchen!

What’s so fun is that Gretchen did Bernie’s DNA with Embark Vet. We thought they might be chow mix pups & she confirmed that we were right! Sounds like he’s going to have a wonderful life with Gretchen!

We are so happy for Bernie!


We rescue homeless pets in Central Texas, providing them with medical care & then transporting them to wherever forever homes are waiting for them all over North America.

We’ll soon mark the 500th pet rescued!

We are so happy for Gambit!


Dixie was rescued by an oil rig crew in Texas & HOT-PAWS helped her find her forever home on Long Island, New York!

We are so happy for Dixie!
