PAWS, a “No-Kill” shelter in Central Texas, began operations in 1986 and has been involved in the Wimberley community ever since. Originally responsible for housing Wimberley dogs and cats brought in by Animal Control, PAWS now serves as an adoption facility for families looking for their forever pets. When it becomes necessary to re-home a dog or cat, PAWS takes in owner surrenders and finds new adoptive placements.
In the past two years, over 40 free-roaming kittens from Wimberley have found their forever families through PAWS. Most of those would have faced difficult lives fending for themselves. Through the PAWS Wimberley TNR (trap-neuter- return) program, over 500 free-roaming community cats have been spayed or neutered, vaccinated, given
medication for fleas and worms as well as medical treatment as needed, and returned to their home environment. Private citizens, governmental organizations and businesses alike depend upon the TNR program to insure that unwanted pregnancies do not occur and that cared-for free roaming community cats are maintained in good health. PAWS is proud to be a part of this humane way of controlling feline overpopulation.
