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.
“We thank Best Friends Animal Society for helping us keep four-footed family members out of shelters,” said Haley Edman, director of marketing for the animal rescue organization in Dallas. “Too often a family is put in the sad situation of letting go of a beloved pet because they can’t afford the medical care, or maybe the animal has some simple behavior issues that a consultation with one of our experts could help resolve.”
Dallas Pets Alive! is an active partner in Best Friends No More Homeless Pets® Network which offers help and support to animal rescue groups and shelters that save lives in their communities.
