Habitat 4 Paws is an animal rescue group in the DFW area whose mission is to rescue and find permanent homes for dogs and cats while caring for them in a volunteer staffed adoption facility and foster program. Prior to adoption, all rescued dogs and cats are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, micro chipped and tested for common diseases.
H4P’s goal is to acquire and operate an adoption facility in the Frisco or nearby area and to invite community participation in ways that will benefit rescued animals.
Beyond just sheltering animals, we want to be proactive in other areas that will help keep animals out of municipal shelters. Paws Pantry animal-food bank collects and distributes dog and cat food to those in need. H4P will host microchip clinics so that animals will have a permanent ID and can be reunited with their owners.
We also foresee having educational programs, including importance of good animal health, behavior and training.
Habitat 4 Paws is a 501(c) charitable organization, relying on donations and fundraising events for revenue.

Roni Seely President
Roni is pictured with Libby, one of many mama dogs with puppies that H4P has rescued over the years. Spaying and neutering is so very important to prevent unwanted litters and overcrowding in municipal shelters. Happily, Libby and all of her puppies found fantastic homes!
Roni began volunteering in 1998 with SPCA of Texas where she learned about shelter life, animal care, fostering, and adoption counseling. She trained and mentored new volunteers, photographed pets for the website and found her passion and purpose, earning volunteer of the year and other awards while there. In 2006, Roni had a unique opportunity to co-found another rescue organization where she served as Director of Operations. Roni supervised and managed the shelter, overseeing the rescue and adoption of over 1,250 dogs and cats in just four years.
In 2010, a renewed rescue vision gave Roni the opportunity to found and grow Habitat 4 Paws, an organization dedicated to responsible care of its animals and their placement into forever homes. The love and passion for animals is what keeps her going no matter what obstacles may come in her way!
Professionally, Roni worked as a legal assistant for 27 years combined with 17 years of shelter and rescue work. She is currently an underwriting assistant for SureTec Insurance Company.
