 Working to rescue homeless dogs and find them forever homes!
We are back, so sorry for lack of response!   We are also at full capacity currently and cannot take more fur babies in at this time!  


Who We Are & What We Do

Pause for Paws Inc. is a no-kill, all volunteer, foster-based
501(C)(3) non-profit, shelter in San Antonio, TX. We are a stray/street dog rescue, primarily taking in dogs directly from the streets in the San Antonio area and from people in the community who have picked up strays. We rescue, treat, rehabilitate, vaccinate, spay/neuter, and microchip all of our animals. We provide foster care in a loving environment while we match the animals with their forever homes. 

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 Thank You!


We take in many special needs 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 heartworm preventatives, yearly shots, maintenance care, etc. While you visit us please consider making a donation or shopping through AmazonSmile.
