August To-Do’s: Clear the Shelters, Vote, and Eat Cookies!

I’m Ollie! I’m the luckiest dog in the world because my wonderful fosters rescued me! Now, I need to be adopted so they can rescue another pet in need! 

Clear The Shelters is when people all over the country work together to find loving homes for pets, like me. 

When you adopt a pet from DPA, the foster family is available to rescue another pet from a shelter, which opens a kennel for another homeless animal. That saves three lives!

Leslie says, during August, in honor of Clear the Shelters Month, if you apply to adopt or meet a DPA foster pet at our Adoption Container at Community Beer, you’ll get 50% off the adoption fee.

I’ll be your new best friend!


Wags and Licks, Ollie


P.S. Visit the DPA Adoption Container to meet other fosters or to check more adoptable pets on the Container’s touch screens:

  • Thursday: 3:00 PM – 8:00 PM
  • Friday: 3:00 PM – 8:00 PM
  • Sat: 12:00 PM – 7:00 PM
  • Sun 11:00 AM – 6:00 PM

And… if you want to try fostering, this is a great time to do it!

Foster Ollie

Our new program, FOSTER+, reduces barriers to fostering. 

Benefits included thru July 1,2024 are:

  • Supplies & Grooming
  • Snyft (like Lyft for pets)
  • Training 
  • Pet Support

This is cool! Watch this! FC Dallas soccer player, Sam Junqua, and his longtime girlfriend, Emma Besier, talk about their fostering experience with kittens, Ember and Blaze, and how much they love it. (Ember and Blaze are available for adoption, too!)

And as always, if you can’t adopt or foster, you save animals every time you make a gift.
