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.

The holiday season is the most stressful time of year for a lot of us, and our pets are no stranger to the same type of holiday angst that we go through.

The front door stays open all night, the outdoor light is on when it shouldn’t be, strange orange globes sit on the front steps and people […]
Dallas Pets Alive!, since its inception, has focused on reactive rescue, pulling animals from Dallas Animal Services (DAS) into our adoption program. This year and into 2017 our goal is not only to continue our good work rescuing animals from the shelter but also to take a more proactive approach. A major component of this approach is helping owners who are having problems so great that they see surrendering their pet(s) to a shelter as their only option. Helping these owners is the basis of the Positive Alternatives to Shelter Surrender (PASS) program, which will launch on December 3, 2016 thanks to the support of The Dallas Foundation’s grant program.
