“Robert Beard is a perfect match for the financial reporting team at DPA with his background in accounting. He has been a critical part of the behind the scenes work at DPA making sure that our financial data is recorded correctly and reports available for our leadership team and others who need this data. He has been in this role for two years and is efficient and detail-oriented, two qualities that are SO important in finance. Robert is my right hand and I do not know what I would do without him to keep all the finances in order and information ready for our strategic decision making.”, says Emily Johnston, Vice President of Administration.
Ashley is such a special foster mama! She has a huge heart for senior or special needs dogs who are down on their luck and have found themselves at the shelter. She gives them all she has for as long as they need to find a new home! Ashley is also one of our hospice fosters to Louie, who just celebrated his 96th (98th**) birthday with their family! She does whatever it takes for these dogs to be happy and as healthy as possible, and we can’t thank her enough for opening her heart to such special pups! This is why Ashely Bonnin is one of Dallas Pet’s Alive’s PAWesome People!
This could be the most memorable Valentine’s Day you’ve ever had. In fact, it could change your life forever. You won’t need cupids with harps on greeting cards, bouquets of flowers or dinner reservations, but you will need a big heart and some dog biscuits. We have a special someone for you with four legs and a happy tail, looking for a permanent home to call his own!
Dallas Pets Alive! received a grant from national animal welfare organization Best Friends Animal Society. The grant is for a program designed to help families keep their pets when medical or behavioral issues could result in the pet being relinquished.
With multiple adoption events ahead, the Dallas animal rescue group helps everyone find a companion this season!

Maris has such a huge heart! She is professional, passionate about the cause, and extremely dedicated to her duties and our mission. She consistently goes above and beyond by stepping in to help cover other volunteer’s days, train new volunteers, and help vet applicants as quickly as possible to ensure we save as many lives as we can as fast as we can. She sets an amazing example of exactly the kind of person and volunteer this team and DPA need and depend on every day.”
Jackie has been fostering with us for a few years now, but what makes her truly special is that she doesn’t shy away from seemingly daunting medical cases. Her family took in Ruger, who suffered from severe chemical burns all over his body, and she’s currently fostering Winston, who came to us appearing to be partially paralyzed from the waist down. With Jackie’s help, both of these dogs have made complete recoveries! This is why Jackie Spivey is one of Dallas Pet’s Alive’s PAWesome People!
Is he black on white or white on black? Is he light on shadow or shadow on light? I just can’t decide. Whatever the case, the tuxedo markings on Jasper set him apart, making him look like a pianist in a jazz club or the perfect prom date, which gives him a slightly distinguished look. Maybe that’s why people say he’s elegant! He’s a Domestic Short Hair mix with beautiful, soft gold eyes with a white chin, bib, belly and paws. All he needs now is a red rhinestone collar, a pair of sunglasses and a Miles Davis CD. If you don’t know who Miles Davis is or what CDs are, think of Jasper getting ready for a smooth Michael Bublé concert.
