About Panhandle Paws of Hope

Panhandle Paws of Hope is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We rescue dogs and cats from kill-shelters.   All  of our dogs receive rabies and distemper/parvo vaccinations, microchips, and are spayed/neutered, and our cats are spayed/neutered, microchipped, and receive a rabies vaccination.  We depend on donations to save animals. Please scroll to the bottom of the page for information about making donations to PPOH.

Thank you to Tractor Supply, Palo Duro Vet, PetSmart, the Venom, the Bulls, Amarillo Auto Clean, Raising Cane’s, Nothing Bundt Cakes, Goodin’s, Burkett Outdoor Advertising, Tascosa Golf Club, Irwin’s Greenhouse,  and all of the amazing sponsors who have helped support recent fundraising and adoption events, as well as the local media (Channel 10, KAMR, and KGNC) for helping us get the word out about our recent fundraisers. The last few months have been busy for PPOH, and we couldn't raise the money needed for our animals without your support! Thank you also to the wonderful volunteers who make these events possible, and to our supporters who made the events a success. Stay tuned for more information about adoption events and fundraisers!

Adoption Process

The PPOH adoption application is available on the upper right hand of this page.  PPOH expects complete honesty from applicants, to help ensure that the pairing of the adopter and pet being adopted is appropriate, loving, and life-long.  We reserve the right to refuse to adopt to anybody, for any reason.
