Mission Statement

Lifelong Friends Pet Adoptions is a non-profit, no-kill animal shelter dedicated to preventing animal suffering, rescuing and caring for stray and abandoned dogs and cats and finding homes for these animals, educating the public about responsible pet ownership, and encouraging pet owners to spay and neuter their animals.


Lifelong Friends is not a typical animal shelter. We refuse to participate in the killing of hundreds of healthy, homeless animals that takes place every 60 seconds in America. We are an all-volunteer organization, and it has been your continued support and compassion that has allowed us to manage animal rescue challenges, operate and maintain our shelter, and facilitate hundreds of adoptions.

Since 1997, Lifelong Friends (formerly Lago Vista PAWS) has been providing a safe haven for abandoned and abused animals. Thousands of animals have passed through our doors. Operated solely by volunteers, our by-laws instill the philosophy of the founders as a no-kill shelter.

Volunteers work hard caring for the animals and are as dedicated to improving community awareness.

I made an spur of the moment, unannounced visit to the shelter and found volunteers steadily working away. The cages were clean, animals well cared for, plenty of food and water in their cages. The cats were incredibly friendly, even after trimming their claws, they just wanted to be petted or brushed! Very organized and neat.
