Join us at WonderFall 2022, a fall festival with performances, face painting, armadillo races, and meet adoptable dogs with Paws in the City!

Paws in the City is a 501(c)(3) all-volunteer, no-kill organization with the commitment to ending the overpopulation, abuse, and neglect of Dallas/Ft. Worth area dogs. We have no paid staff. 100% of all funds raised goes directly to dogs in need. Our goal is that every adoptable dog gets a loving home.



It is with profound grief and sadness we are sharing with you all that our President, Mark Verma, passed away after his valiant battle with cancer on June 25, 2022.
