About Panhandle Paws of Hope

Panhandle Paws of Hope is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We rescue dogs from kill-shelters and offer home placement for pets who can no longer be cared for by their owners. All of our dogs receive rabies and distemper/parvo vaccinations, microchips, and are spayed/neutered.


Join us Saturday, April 22nd from 2:00 to 5:00 at Burn Studio (4111 Business Park Drive, Amarillo, Texas) for Petals for Pups and Shred Day!

Bring your pups out to create one of a kind artwork (their paws will be dipped in dog-safe paint, and Burn Studio artists will finish the painting).  Two sizes of canvasses will be available ($25 and $15, plus and additional $5 if more than one dog is featured on the canvass).  It's fun for the entire family!

Also bring your confidential documents and Wes Tex Document, Inc. will shred your papers for a donation to PPOH.  Perfect timing for spring cleaning!

We'll have pups available for adoption and goodies (for both humans and pets) available for purchase.  We look forward to seeing you there!


Saturday, May 6th we will have adoptions at Tractor Supply (I-27 & Hollywood) from 12:00 to 4:00, and have geraniums from our sale available for pickup. Stop by to adopt your new best friend and pick  up your order of beautiful flowers!

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.
