Reimagine Rescue with Dallas Pets Alive!

In 2020, we will build our first adoption center, giving pets the chance they need to find a loving home. This adoption center will be a space for future pet parents to gather and meet our adoptable pets, allowing us to substantially grow the number of animals we can rescue. We’re so excited to construct this incredible adoption center, but we can’t do it without you. You can help us build a better way! Click the button below to learn more and help us reimagine rescue.
