SOUTHPAWS PLAYSCHOOL IS TRYING TO RETIRE FROM THE FOSTERING GAME. AFTER TWELVE YEARS OF LOVING AND PLACING DOGS AND PUPPIES, WE HAVE DECIDED TO FOCUS OUR TIME AND EFFORTS (AND MONEY) ON REMOVING THE BARRIERS THAT STILL EXIST TO SPAY AND NEUTER IN AUSTIN.
In addition to this mission, since we opened our doors in 2002, we have partnered with our clients and the public to support fostering efforts however we can. This includes a foster rate for daycare attendance for any foster from any rescue group. We also foster dogs on our own at the daycare and support and encourage our clients to foster dogs whenever possible.
PLEASE TAKE NOTE...
Although we dearly love dogs, and we understand that in certain situations rehoming is the best choice for all concerned, we will not accept owner-surrendered or owner-abandoned dogs. We are, however, available for courtesy email consultations for those owners who are having problems, but are hoping to keep their dog in the family.
Because we let each dog choose whether or not to become adopted by a family, we are free to let the process flow naturally. You will never be pressured or made to feel that you aren't "good enough" to get one of our dogs. We will answer any and all questions you have fully and happily; we have nothing to hide about either our process or the dogs that we foster and love.
