4PAWS, Inc. was formed in 1997 in Benbrook, Texas in response to the need to improve shelter conditions and begin an animal adoption program. Through the efforts of 4PAWS, Inc. and the city, over $10,000 of renovations were completed to the aging shelter. Also, euthanasia at the shelter has almost been eliminated and over 2,000 animals have been placed in the loving homes.
4PAWS, Inc. is an IRS recognized 501(c)3 non-profit organization operated exclusively for the promotion of animal welfare. The objectives are (but not limited to): adoptions at PetSmart stores of animals from the Benbrook Animal shelter, providing all pet owners discounted neuter/spay services for their existing pets and a no-cost program for qualifying low income pet owners, providing community education to promote responsible pet ownership, coordinating and conducting business with other agencies who share our interests and providing animal information thru the Internet and local newspapers.
