Suleika has dedicated so much time and resources to DPA over the last few years. She has saved countless of lives by fostering dogs that were at risk of euthanasia and has given them the chance to start the rest of their lives. This is why Suleika Bloom is one of Dallas Pet’s Alive’s PAWesome People!
Al Green was in pretty bad shape when Dallas Pets Alive! found him. He was underweight, tatted with battle scars and heartworm positive. With the help of his amazing foster family, his foster sister Betty, and his adoptive dad’s huge heart, he landed a spot at the top.
“Michele never ceases to amaze me. She is a dedicated volunteer on our Medical team responsible for ensuring all our little ones have registered microchips for their safety should they ever get lost. As our sole feline alumni counselor she is responsible for our cats well being post adoption.” – Jessica Weinstein, Vice President of Animal Operations
Heartworm positive and homeless, Lady Guadalupe landed a wonderful foster family just in time for the holidays. But before Dallas Pets Alive! took her in and got her the medical treatment she needed to get healthy, she had a pretty tough time and ended up in the shelter.
Meet Elliott, a Staffordshire Terrier mix with a playful nature known for affectionately following her favorite people around the house and befriending others with her winsome charm. She’s (yes, Elliot is a girl!) an attractive brown and white pup with a stocky build and deep brown eyes who looks good in a green feather boa but prefers to be seen near–or on top of–her favorite people. Whether she is curled up in the crook of your knees or playing with the other dogs she lives with, she is an affectionate companion who craves your company.
If you’ve ever been to Austin you know that a lot of greatness comes out of Zilker Park. It’s home to the botanical gardens, Barton Springs Pool, and Austin City Limits Music Festival (ACL) to name a few, as well as Alex Hopes, aka Zilker Bark, pet photographer extraordinaire.

275 people and dogs walk into a bar, five bars to be exact. The punchline? No joke here. The rest is record-breaking Dallas Pets Alive! Pup Crawl history. On May 28, 2017, DPA hosted its 5th annual Pup Crawl in Deep Ellum. Volunteers, adopters, fosters, and hundreds of other awesome people from around the community got together to do what we do best, drink beer and play with puppies!
NOLA is a special pup and, much like her namesake city New Orleans, has overcome obstacles and risen high on the other side.
After being hit by a car and being taken to our partners at Vet Ranch for surgery, NOLA became an honorary member of the Dallas Pets Alive! tripod club. A few days later she went home to her foster family who quickly fell in love and adopted her.
“Debbie has saved many lives by fostering dogs over the last few years with DPA! She is always willing to step up and foster dogs at risk of euthanasia… the dogs who literally have hours left to live, and no matter if the timing is right or wrong, Debbie always says yes and finds a way to make it work. She has fostered a few heartworm positive dogs too, which is a bit of a longer commitment because treatment lasts at least a few months. Debbie has such a big heart for bully breeds, which have a harder time getting adopted due to misconceptions and unfair reputations. She has worked with dogs with various behavioral and medical needs, and has always committed to fostering a dog until it is adopted, no matter how long it takes. In fact, she is currently fostering our Dog of the Month, Zephyr, who has been searching for her forever home for a full year, and Suzy, who has been on the hunt for a family for 7 months! These two dogs are fabulous, dog friendly, happy girls, but for some reason they just haven’t found their perfect match. Debbie has never complained about the length of time a dog spends at her home, but continues to love them and care for them no matter what! She is in it for the long haul, and we so appreciate her commitment to helping our pups who need it most!”, says Allison Brandon, Foster and Medical Director for Dallas Pets Alive!
