Bricks are placed in the Prairie Paws Path just outside the front doors of the Prairie Paws Adoption Center. 

Gift Certificates

Gift Certificate

Thinking about giving a pet as a gift, but just don’t know if the recipient of your gift will be as in love as you were at the time of adoption? Don’t worry; you can purchase a Gift Certificate at Prairie Paws Adoption Center instead. This strategy allows the recipient of your gift to choose their own pet and to decide when they are ready to care for a pet. Gift Certificates are $70 and cover the cost of the adoption fee.

Become a Foster 

The Prairie Paws Adoption Center accepts stray and owned animals regardless of age, health, species or breed; therefore we take in around 8,000 animals per year. As a result, we are always in need of individuals or families who can commit their time, energy, and love to assist us in saving as many lives as possible. By offering your home to an animal in need, not only do you help prepare a pet for a forever home, but you also directly assist in combating overpopulation in our shelter. At this moment you have the opportunity to become involved in this lifesaving mission and together we can help battle animal homelessness in Grand Prairie. Learn more.
