DPA’s Pawesome Person: November Foster Spotlight

DPA’s Pawesome Person: November Foster Spotlight

Dani does not shy away from fostering any type of dog – she has fostered Chihuahuas to Great Danes and everything in between. Despite having a full house of dogs and cats of her own, Dani treats her foster dogs as if they were there to stay. She has a knack for loving the ones with a long list of medical issues and seniors (aka the most looked over in the shelter). Her fosters came to her with their fare share of problems ranging from extreme allergies to severe malnutrition, injuries that require surgery to heartworm. Her patience is a virtue and her passion for rescue is inspiring. We are so lucky to have Dani on our team and know that each dog that goes through her home is on the road to the best life possible. – Stefanie Steiner, Foster Director for Dallas Pets Alive! This is why Dani Boepple is one of Dallas Pet’s Alive’s PAWesome People! How did you get involved with Fostering with DPA? Two 1/2 years ago I searched for a rescue to foster for, as I used to foster in California. I found DPA and fell in love with the program and people immediately. Just a few days after filling out the foster app I picked up my first shelter save in Texas! The rest is history! Tell us about a few of your fosters. I’ve had SO many I have lost count! I love fostering the bottle baby kittens and as an assistant Principal I took them to work with me and taught the students how to feed and care for them. I...
DPA’s Cat of the Month – November: Meet Annie!

DPA’s Cat of the Month – November: Meet Annie!

Annie is a colorful two-year-old Domestic Short Hair/Calico mix with pretty gold eyes. She’s a patchwork quilt of brown, black and white shapes who can certainly hold her own in the cuteness category! This little gal has a sweet personality, is quite talkative and just loves to get some human attention! She may seem a bit shy but she’ll purr the minute you start to pet her and perks up when another friendly cat is there to romp around with. She’s a curious, playful kitty who likes her toys (even at night) and would no doubt enjoy being in a household with the opportunity to play. Annie will need some time to adjust to her new fur-ever home. She was rescued from a hoarding situation and needs some compassionate, patient people to help her learn that she can rely on humans for what she needs. If you have a patient nature, the time you invest in this little cat could pay big dividends. Annie has a lot to offer! Since Annie is our Cat of the Month her adoption fee is 50% off through November 30. If you think she could be the one for you apply to adopt her...
DPA’s Dog the Month – November: Meet Arya Stark!

DPA’s Dog the Month – November: Meet Arya Stark!

This is Arya Stark, an athletic, young, female Pit Bull Terrier/Mixed with a mocha brown coat, white chest and soft gold eyes.  She also lays claim to a big heart with lots of love to dole out!  She’s named for the warrior girl in Game of Thrones, a name she has earned by surviving some trying times. No doubt this pup has a resilient nature.  This Mother’s Day, remember to send Arya a card.  She’s had her own litter of eight (delivering them on Easter, no less) and adopted another puppy as her own, acting as a foster mom to him.  She even runs to the aid of her human kids.  Whenever she senses they are sad or in distress, she swiftly comes to their aid.  All she needs now is a keg around her neck!    Like all good moms, Arya has a clever side.  (Well, let’s face it, with nine puppies you learn to cope.)  She gets along well with other dogs in her household, but has learned to bury her bones in the backyard so she can get some well-deserved chewing time all to herself:)  She will also find a way to cuddle up with you on the sofa and take in those movies.  Smart dog. Arya is house-trained, can use a dog door and enjoys taking rides in the car with her family. After all the nurturing she has done, we think she’s deserved the right forever home with a caring family of her own.  Could this sweet dog be your special companion?  Apply to adopt Arya Stark today! Her adoption fee is 50% off...
