Lend A paw and SAVE A ​



​About Us

Law N’ Paws is a unique rescue group that was established in 2017 by El Paso Police Detective, Vanessa Acosta. We are a 501c(3) non-profit group and have rescued over 600 victims of animal cruelty and neglect, so far. Law N’ Paws evolved when Detective Acosta began investigating animal cruelty and neglect cases. She soon realized the need to take it a step further, going above and beyond to help animal victims on her own time. She began to seek out medical care for the rescue animals in need, paying out of her own pocket. After the first rescue pup, Raven, was successfully rehabilitated and placed in a safe forever home, Law N’ Paws was born. Law N’ Paws continues to provide the much-needed medical care after being made aware of animal abuse, cruelty and neglect cases. But it doesn’t stop there. We also ensure that each of our rescues are spayed, neutered, provided vaccinations and are microchipped.  But we could not do this without community support. Relying strictly on donations, we humbly ask for your help. From monetary donations to much needed supplies, your donation will allow us to continue our mission of rehabilitation and love.



Our mission is to help abused and neglected animals and give them a second chance at finding a forever home.


Whether an animal has been rescued from a cruelty situation or is a stray that has been abandoned, our goal is to give them the necessary care and rehabilitation.


Once our rescues have been rehabilitated, they are ready to find a forever home.
