Guest Reviews

The team at Southern Paws of Texas is just amazing. Our dog can’t wait to get here and is greeted like a loved family member, every time. Thanks for taking great care of the fur babies.

Joe Elliott

The facility was clean and I was very pleased with the care my 2 fur babies received while we vacationed for a few days. Wish they had cameras so we could have checked in on them but other than that it was exceptional

Laura Shivok

Great place for our dog. We have a large dog, he lives coming here and he is treated well. He is on medication and while here never misses a pill. The wonderful people here truly care for these animals.
