LPRT serves North Texas in Dallas, Tarrant, Collin and Denton counties. Our mission is to prevent animal suffering, animal cruelty and to help educate the public about spaying and neutering their pets as well – as responsible pet ownership.
Since 2005, we have helped over 8000 homeless dogs and cats in the Dallas-Fort Worth area find permanent, loving forever homes. We have dog and cat adoptions weekly.
Adopted the most adorable pup from this rescue. They were responsive to our inquiry. Dog was well cared for and vetting process was thorough. Reached out after adoption to see how everything was going. Really good experience. HenryDog,… Read More “Really Good Experience”
I definitely recommend this rescue!
I adopted Star from Lost Paws and she is the sweetest, silliest, most amazing addition to my family, and her fur siblings love her. She doesn’t seem to know she was born without front legs because she hops and “runs” around as if she had all 4! Lost Paws was fantastic to work with! Yvette clearly is passionate about helping cats and dogs in need of good homes, and she was responsive to my questions and easy to work with in meeting Star for the first time. She explained the adoption process thoroughly and has checked in with me since… Read More “I definitely recommend this rescue!”
Highly recommend LPRT for finding your next fuzzy buddy!
We had the opportunity to adopt sweet “Wonton” from Lost Paws Rescue in April 2023. He has been a joy for our family and friends. Yvette and the volunteers were all very friendly and helpful throughout the process. There are so so many pups needing homes and this rescue recognizes the importance of ensuring they find a good loving home that can provide for their needs without making it a difficult and emotional roll-a-coaster to go through. The adoption fee is very reasonable, not to mention the offset for what they cover for remaining vaccines and spayed/neutering. Highly recommend LPRT… Read More “Highly recommend LPRT for finding your next fuzzy buddy!”
I adopted Lucy about 2 yrs ago and she has been wonderful. She is an overachieving goofball all the time. She gets along with the other dogs and was housebroken from the start. Lost Paws Rescue of Texas was great to work with and made the process seamless. I recommend them to anyone looking to bring a new furry family member home.

What a wonderful group of people!
What a wonderful group of people! God bless you for finding homes for all those sweet animals that would otherwise be put down. We heard about an event and adopted a precious little terrier. We are in love with her. She will be a great companion to our son who needed something to take care of besides himself. Thanks Lost Paws! Bea L, May 6,… Read More “What a wonderful group of people!”
I Highly Recommend Lost Paws if you’re looking for a pet
We adopted our new “Forever Family” member on Saturday, February 10. The staff made up of volunteers are obvious pet lovers themselves. They are knowledgeable of each animal and obviously care for them deeply. It’s a wonderful organization that gives lost or given up animals a new chance at life. I highly recommend them if you’re looking for a pet. We fell in love with our Mini right away! Laura S, February 13,… Read More “I Highly Recommend Lost Paws if you’re looking for a pet”
It was a Wonderful Experience
Both of our little girls have come from Lost Paws Rescue of Texas and all in all, it was a wonderful experience. You can tell the volunteers really love the animals and desire to find them a great home. It is also clear that this rescue group takes in some of the most at-risk animals saving them from very poor circumstances. They are easy to work with and know that your \”adoption fee\” is really a donation to all that they do for these animals. I highly recommend saving a pet from this group! Kirsten B, April 6,… Read More “It was a Wonderful Experience”
The volunteers at Lost Paws are very committed to finding compatible homes for each dog
We Cannot Say Enough Good About Their Organization
“We have personally adopted five cats from Lost Paws and we cannot say enough good about their organization. Each cat we have rescued has been loving, social and a welcomed addition to the family. We will definitely be part of the Lost Paws ‘family’ for the rest of our lives!” Jeff & Beth K., August 31,… Read More “We Cannot Say Enough Good About Their Organization”
LPRT is an all volunteer 501(c)3 charity whose sole mission is to rescue abandoned dogs and cats in order to give them a second chance for a new life.
We receive dogs and cats from shelters across Texas, Louisiana and Oklahoma. They also come to us from owner surrender situations; as part of animal cruelty seizure cases; and from breeder releases. We take in dogs and cats with unknown medical conditions and work to get them well enough for adoption.
Our story began 15 years ago when the founder, Yvette Garza, decided she would do something we all probably think about...she would “make a difference”.
Her love since childhood was animals - so animals it was. So, with $150, a foster dog and cat, she started her charity. And in 2023, 8000+ adoptees later - she is still just as passionate about giving these former unwanted little creatures a good life.
Yvette is proof that one person can change a life ... or 8000.
