YTD 2015, we have rescued 286 dogs and cats and placed 253 pets into their forever homes!!!

Your support of Humane Society Dallas County / Dog & Kitty City is amazing and we want you to know just what your donations mean to us:

  • $600 supported our rescue and heartworm treatment of 4 dogs – River, Dasher, Denver and V – now living in their forever homes;
  • $8,300 provided the vaccines for 166 kittens and puppies, giving them a healthy start;
  • More than $6,000 supported spay / neuter to help control pet population and avoid births of kittens and puppies born to die because there is no room for them in the system or in private homes;
  • $1,500 provided special medical care for seriously injured / ill animals – Festus, with a broken leg that required amputation; Lion, who suffered a spinal injury temporarily paralyzing him; Chip, suffering with a debilitating skin disease.

Our shelter would not succeed without your generous support! We are so grateful.

Dory's Success Story
Dory's Success Story

At 6 weeks old, little Dory was thrown over the eight-foot high fence at our shelter.  She was one of four small puppies discarded on a cold March night at the Humane Society Dallas County/Dog & Kitty City with a note that simply read,  "Husky/Shepherd mix," no other explanation.  This is a regular occurrence at the shelter.

Dory, Bubbles, Flo and Crush received some bruises from their fall.  Once our shelter staff evaluated and monitored them, they were given the "all clear."  After several rounds of vaccinations, socialization and caring for these adorable puppies, they were all able to find forever homes.  Our shelter adoption team searched for families that were willing to provide positive re-enforcement training and willing to exercise growing puppies that would become large dogs.  Dory was the last to get adopted in June, when she became a member of a wonderful family.  

After Dory was adopted, her new family discovered that she was actually an Anatolian Shepherd, which meant she would grow up to be between 80 to 100 pounds.  In September our shelter learned that Dory passed her dog obedience class with flying colors!!!

Humane Society Dallas County/Dog & Kitty City was able to take these puppies in, vaccinate, feed, care and provide socialization programs because of the generous donations you've made to GlobalGiving.  Thank you for your support, it has helped our shelter tremendously as we care for the homeless cat and dogs in the Dallas area.

Your support in helping the Humane Society Dallas County/Dog & Kitty City via GlobalGiving has been truly tremendous!  Take a look at how your donations have helped in saving and caring for abandoned dogs and cats in North Texas and the Dallas area during the past few months:

  • Over $1,000 in vet care, such as medical tests, dental and blood work has been provided for the shelter dogs & cats including: Jasmine, Rusty, Mame, Jedd and Vinny.
  • $2,800 in vaccinations has been provided for 136 shelter dogs and cats, including Bobby.
  • $1,800 in spay/neuters have been performed on 38 shelter dogs and cats, including Salt and Pepper.
  • Almost $500 was available to microchip 57 dogs and cats preparing for adoption, including Ontario.
  • And finally, you helped us treat Ty, a sweet German Shepherd who had been rescued from a highway underpass by a wonderful patrolman, during his last days while he suffered a fatal muscle wasting disease.

Our shelter is very thankful for every donation received and will continue to show you the results that your donations provide to this project.
