100% - and we mean 100% of our contributions go to our dogs' care. This winter we are challenging our amazing donors to donate 10k for the holidays. In each of the past 7 years, our volunteers have wrapped gifts during the Christmas season for customers at Barton Creek Mall; we typically make close to 10k from mall customers who donate to our rescue for this service. It is major annual fundraiser and allows us to take in major medical cases from abused, abandoned and homeless dogs.

Due to unforseen changes in management at the mall we will not have this fund raising opportunity this year, so we are calling on our supporters to help us make up these desperately needed funds. We are hoping for $100 but whatever you can give us SO HELPFUL!

While we know $100 is not within everyone's budget, with just a little creativity and indepedent fundraising of your own you can raise $100 on behalf of LIl Paws Pups in need. Here are some of the methods we might suggest:

  • If you love wrapping, wrap for friends or family. Moms of young children are great candidates- take the work off their hands and give them a "Quiet Santa" with whom to wrap and hide their gifts!
  • Take cookies or treats into your offiice for donations if you can. Prop a note up next to your donations.
  • Donate for a friend or family member's gift for the holidays.

Thank you so much for any donation you can make! Please note in your comments if you would like a Thank You card sent to a friend or family member



Becoming a foster home is one of the most amazing ways to contribute to rescue. We talk often about the importance of foster homes for our organization - we have no facility; all our rescued dogs must stay in homes -  but its also important to remember how much joy fostering can bring into your life!

As a foster parent, you will get to experience a change in the life of a dog that is very moving. While many dogs come in in good shape from happy homes due to unfortunate circumstances, many others arrive from puppy mills or the streets in extremely poor health and emotional and mental condition. As a foster owner, you get to help a dog like this bloom, become healthy, and move on to a forever home.

Of course, dogs  who come to us from good homes still need families while they search for a new forever home. Either way, there is nothing that matches the feeling of saving a dogs life and then sending him or her off into a wonderful forever home! Plus, the presence of social networks like Facebook help you stay in touch with your foster dog's family long after they leave your home.

We are always looking for foster homes. We are also currently looking for "forever fosters" for some of our senior dogs; this is a great option if you want to adopt but are concerned about the annual costs of medical care for a pet. Please contact us to learn more about fostering, or fill out our foster application form.
