LAPP Dog Happy Tails - Adoption Updates

About Love And Puppy Paws Dog Rescue

Love And Puppy Paws Dog Rescue (LAPP Dog Rescue) is a 100% foster-based rescue that was formed to help alleviate the stress of city and county animal control facilities around South and Central Texas. We accept dogs into our rescue that would have otherwise been taken to overpopulated animal control facilities and would be at risk of euthanasia due to space restraints, behavioral issues, and/or medical issues. Our main focus is to assist with street dogs, strays, and dogs in rural animal control facilities that do not have resources that larger animal control facilities have to network dogs in their facility, provide vet care, or have a larger population of potential adopters. Any dogs brought into LAPP Dog Rescue’s care will be placed in foster homes, receive veterinary care, receive training for behavioral issues if needed, and gain socialization skills before they are adopted into their forever homes.

LAPP Dog Rescue does not adopt locally in Texas as we do not want to compete with local animal control facilities or animal shelters that are overflowing with adoptable dogs. If you are in Texas and want to adopt a dog in need of a forever home, we recommend checking out animal control facilities, humane societies, and local shelters in your city and surrounding areas.


LAPP Dog Rescue does not discriminate against dogs based on their breeds, age, or disabilities. In fact, the founders and directors of LAPP Dog Rescue have owned, adopted and fostered breeds like pit bulls, rottweilers, chihuahuas, poodles, and many others ranging in puppy to senior ages and even some with disabilities over the years. LAPP Dog Rescue loves dogs of all shapes and sizes, and from all different walks of life. 

With fosters, volunteers and help from the community, we assist and specialize in providing dogs with a safe place to be and prepare them for a future filled with love in their forever homes. You can help us make a difference in a dog's life by adopting, fostering, advocating or donating. 

Currently Love And Puppy Paws Dog Rescue covers areas around Austin, Texas and Corpus Christi, Texas. Our goal is to to expand through San Antonio, Texas and surrounding areas to help more stray dogs in need.

How can you help?


Donate today to provide us with the life-saving funds to cover medical costs for injured and sick dogs brought into Love And Puppy Paws Dog Rescue. These tax-deductible donations will also help us feed, spay/neuter, vaccinate and care for the LAPP Dogs in our rescue so that we can prepare them to go to their forever homes.

Apply to foster a LAPP Dog so we can continue getting more neglected, abandoned, abused, and unwanted dogs off of the streets and out of animal control facilities. Love And Puppy Paws Dog Rescue covers all expenses while the dog is in your care. All you need to do is open your home and your heart to give them a place to heal and experience love before they are adopted and go to their forever families.
