This season our shelter has had the privilege to place many of our animals into forever homes. We've had the opportunity to see many of our adult animals find homes as well and we couldn't be more pleased. 

 This is all possible because YOU make the difference for them!


With your help, your concern, and your financial support we're able to make sure these animals have a happy, content place to get care like vaccinations, medical attention, spay/neuter, and even their annual turkey and rice Thanksgiving dinner!

This journey to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome animals in an ongoing effort that is a lifelong commitment and we're so THANKFUL you've chosen to make such a difference with these animals!  You are truly changing their lives by giving lost, abandoned, and abused animals a brand new chance to have forever.

 
 It's so immeasurably helpful, during this season, to have your support and your contribution!

  • It allows us to spay unaltered females to prevent future abandoned kittens and puppies on our streets.
  • It allows us to test and vaccinate mom and babies.
  • It also provides shelter, food, and comfort to them while they await their chance at a forever home!

Your efforts make the change we all hope to see in the lives our our four legged friends. 

Your donations, in whatever amount you can give, is essential in continuing to provide that answer!

Thank you!

Kitten season is in full swing!  Reports of post-pandemic surrenders of animals have made headlines and other kill shelters are reaching out to us to see if we can help ease the burden of their numbers. Summertime is here which also means we're also seeing an upswing in all the volunteers that are able to give of their time to socialize and show off our animals. 

We're happy to be able to showcase our dogs at offsite events like PetSmart and are encouraging those who are interested in volunteering at those events to help promote our animals, to please get in touch with the shelter to let them know you'd like to help. We're also flush with kittens and, while that makes for a lot of adoptions at the shelter, there are those who are still a little too young yet to be adopted out.  Some still need bottle feeding, some have mothers and some do not.  This is definitely a pressing need for our shelter to offer the very young the round the clock care they need until they are old enough to stay at the shelter full time.  If there is an opportunity for you to volunteer with our shelter in that capacity it would ease the burden off staff members and dedicated fosters so that we don't have to turn away the smallest and most vulnerable animals because of a lack of helping hands.

As a nonprofit organization, we completely rely on community support. None of our efforts would be possible without the help of donors, volunteers, and supportive community members like you.

Our overall goal is the same: to help as many as we're able to and make them ready to find their forever homes. Part of that is to continue to make this shelter a comfortable place for our animals until that day arrives for them, and for those who are sanctuary animals, a comfortable home. Our staff strives daily to meet the requirements of all of our animals and we often have many things we'd like to see come to fruition as far as meeting the goal of making sure our animals are happy, healthy, and homebound.

Unfortunately, many of these goals have to be put on hold until we can raise the funds we need in order to provide for them in the scope of the vision we have for them. We've been fortunate that goals like getting a new transportation van for our dogs has been realized, and that the Ohana Project has been completed. Most often the need outpaces ability and, being a non-profit requires that ability to be tapered until financial support is given.

There is no understatement in saying that what you give, what you do to support our shelter, and how you provide for these amazing animals is how we see the needs we have and the desire for our goals to be realized are accomplished. It is an ongoing journey whose end goal can always be striven for when you work hand in hand with us. We hope that you will continue to remember us during your summer plans and vacations and will continue to offer your support for our work and our animals who owe so much to the role you play in making sure they have what they need for their stay here in our shelter.

Springtime ushers in warmer weather, seasonable rain, and no shortage of kitten and puppy litters. 

The shelter is already seeing an increased intake in kitten and puppy litters.  We're doing our utmost to accommodate a group of young kittens who’ve just come into the shelter and a litter of several small puppies as well.  Once they're old enough to be tested, we'll make sure they have their vaccinations, spay or neuter, and microchips so that they can find a forever home!

With spring upon us, it will bring more dogs and cats that are displaced and more litters from unspayed females.
The cost of adoption at our shelter is $100 - $200.  The cost we incur in intaking litters of kittens and puppies, on average, is $300 or more per animal.  This doesn't include the cost of feeding and housing them.

It's so immeserably helpful, during this season, to have your support and your contribution!

  • It allows us to spay unaltered females to prevent future abandoned kittens and puppies on our streets.
  • It allows us to test and vaccinate mom and babies.
  • It also provides shelter, food, and comfort to them while they await their chance at a forever home!

Your contributions with your financial support changes and literally saves lives!

This is the time when your help and support is critical to our continued efforts toward animal care.

You make it possible to rescue kittens and puppies off the streets where they are prey to bigger animals, suffer in extreme weather, are in danger from vehicles and the cruelty of people, and from starvation and dehydration.  Your contributions ensure that these animals do not have to live in conditions like this!

We need your help, your support, and your considerations.

Any donation is appreciated and all donations provide for our animals. We want to ask if you'll consider a donation of support. Can our animals depend on you as they always have?

With a donation of as little as $10, $20, or $50 your impact can change the outlook for one animal.

Your contributions make these life-saving efforts possible!

We're asking you to continue to make the difference in supporting our ongoing mission of giving animals a better future.

The Ohana Project - A Cottage for Evander

Four years ago a wonderful and energetic pit bull named Evander was rescued through The Street Dog Project and found his way into the hearts of our friends here at the Humane Society of Dallas. Evander did not have an easy life before he came to the shelter and, because of some anxieties and fears, it has been more difficult to place him in the perfect forever home. He is a loving and kind dog but would do best in a home where he is the only dog and has the love and attention of an experienced pet owner.

In true generous fashion, and to commemorate Evander's 4th Anniversary with the Humane Society of Dallas, the volunteers who have come to know and adore him have decided that it's time for Evander to graduate to having a place of his own -- a comfortable cottage made just for him!

On the wonderful chance that Evander finds a permanent place to call home, the cottage will then be converted into a recovery area for any of the shelter animals that require healing or rehabilitation from surgeries or treatments, a separate facility for mom dogs with puppies, and other dogs that need specialized care and attention away from the noise and the confusion of the kennels.

Please consider making a tax-free contribution through this GoFundMe campaign.
