Bella Mar Community Center is a beautiful facility situated in the heart of Texas Hill Country in Steiner Ranch, Texas. It is fully fenced in so you can ensure the safety of your dogs. We will have the area privately rented during our event.






The holidays are right around the corner, and Lil Paws Maltese Rescue celebrates each year by helping with gift wrapping at Barton Creek Mall. Wrapping during the holiday is our biggest fundraiser of the year, and we can't be successful at it without your help. Not only that, but we provide a much-needed "service" to the non-wrapping inclined at the mall. We'll be working in front of Macy's from December 19-24. 


Please consider signing up to help wrap. Its both rewarding and fun!

Grooming your pup is important not only in the spring but throughout the year

Small breeds like those dogs adopted through LIl Paws have hair that doesn't shed, but instead grows. Dogs with hair that grows are great for people with allergies as they leave less hair about the house, but these dogs also require more trimming/grooming. Dogs like Maltese, Poodles, Bichons and Shih-Tzus are at very high risk for matting, and, left unattended for more than a few weeks,  can develop significant matts. Even the smallest of matts can be very painful for a dog, as they pull against the dog's skin. Imagine having your skin pulled all the time- not fun!!


Sweet Tweety is clean and well-groomed. 

Regular grooming is also important to remove hair from a dogs' ears, clean tear stains, and of course, trim nails. If you aren't able to to bathe and carefully  groom your dog every four-six weeks, please make an appointment with a groomer.
