The Cat Program at Dallas Pets Alive! aims to decrease the homeless cat population within Dallas in two ways: by promoting the adoption of shelter cats and by participating in trap-neuter-release initiatives for feral cats. Our volunteers participate in the fostering, adoption counseling and humane trapping and transport of Dallas cats.
DPA! is always looking for volunteers to assist us in helping the companion animals of Dallas. If you are interested in:
- Adopting a cat
- Fostering a cat
- Helping with trap-neuter-release of feral cats

Cat Foster Program
The goal of our Foster Program is to find forever homes for feral kittens and shelter cats. The Foster Program will match foster volunteers with cats and kittens from local TNR colonies and shelters. Dallas Pets Alive! can provide medical treatment or socialization in a foster home setting, until these cats are ready to be adopted. DPA! volunteers maintain a database of cats who are ready for adoption and guide people through the adoption process.
The goal of our Trap-Neuter-Release (TNR) Program is long-term. The idea behind TNR is that we can humanely spay/neuter feral cats and return them to their communities. With spaying or neutering, many adverse behaviors (such as spraying, fighting and yowling) are decreased. This allows feral cats to fit into their neighborhoods better, where they, in turn, prevent the influx of new feral animals. Ultimately, the goal of TNR is to decrease the feral cat population altogether, with the hope that these feral cats can live out their lives without breeding future generations.
