What We Do

Our mission is to promote and provide the resources, education and programs needed to eliminate the killing of companion animals.

How We Do It

Our organization is completely run by volunteers. All of our pets are houses by dedicated foster families throughout the metroplex. IMG_7890 We are currently focused on helping the healthy and treatable pets who are at risk of being killed in the Dallas Animal Services, by rescuing the pets that are at the greatest risk and helping owners who are having problems so great that they need to surrender their pet(s) to a shelter. In our rescue program, we do not duplicate work of other agencies. We focus primarily on the pets who have already been passed over by other groups and the Dallas Animal Services’ adoption programs, and only take the healthy and treatable pets who are about to be killed and have no other options.
