Browse the animals. You can see who is available for adoption on our website, in person at PVAC/LPA PAWS or on our PVAC Urgent Pets Facebook Page.
Chat with an Adoption Specialist. They can tell you more about the animal(s) who you are interested in and can help answer any questions you might have.
Meet & Greet. Play, pet, and/or sit & cuddle with the animal(s) you are interested in adopting.
Finalize the adoption. Talk to an adoption specialist to finish your adoption once you’ve meet your purrrfect match.
Take your pet home with you! Most animals are ready to go to their furever home that same day.

All adoption fees include: spay/neuter surgery, microchip, first series of vaccinations, rabies shot, 30 days of pet insurance trial, medical & behavioral testing and collar & identification tags.


Coming Soon
Those pets with “Site” of FOSTER are part of our Coming Soon Program, this means that they are currently in a PVAC Foster Program home and are available for adoption by application only. This means that they are available to go home, but are off-site in a foster home.

Veterans with Disabilities Grant  Veterans with at least a 10% PTSD documented disability who qualify to adopt a pet will have their adoption fees waived thanks to the support of a Private Donor, when funds are available.

Please contact LPA PAWS for additional information on required documentation.


H-E-B is donating 100% of the food we use to feed the homeless pets at The Laurie P. Andrews PAWS Center, and the staff, volunteers, and animals couldn’t be more grateful.

Our partnership with Heritage Ranch by H-E-B is above and beyond just feeding our pets. H-E-B generously donates 1% of all sales of Heritage Ranch dog and cat food in RGV H-E-B stores right back to LPA PAWS. This means that when you shop Heritage Ranch by H-E-B for your owned pets, you’re giving back to those still looking for a home.

You Shop. AMAZON Gives.
