Meet our July cats of the month, Lip & Fi! These cuties won’t last long. Now through July 31 their adoption fees are 50% off.
A dog who wants nothing more than to follow you from room to room, shower you with cuddly affection and pause to chase a butterfly–meet Texas Rose, a young male pup with a brown coat and honey-colored eyes who is looking for a forever home!
“Maddie is what every foster wishes they were…she is the owner of a fabulous boarding facility, Lucky Paws, in Allen. So basically she spends her day snuggling and playing with puppies. Cool, right?
Maddie was referred to us through one of our adoption counselors after adopting the cutest puppies ever from DPA! She dove right in and became a foster as well as one of our boarding partners. Maddie has continuously stepped up when fosters were in desperate need of immediate temp situations. These pups would have had no where to go if it wasn’t for her willingness to take them in!
We recently received a rave review through Facebook about one of our representatives who helped wrangle in a loose foster pup at a gas station in Allen. It wasn’t hard to put the pieces together to know that it was of course Maddie who came to the rescue! DPA is extremely lucky to have Maddie and Lucky Paws on our team!” – Stefanie Steiner, Foster Director for Dallas Pets Alive!
A brown and white, floppy-eared, eight-year-old gal with a winsome smile and a penchant for walks and cuddling, she’s the kind of dog who is going to become a true blue family member! Meet Sadie Vida! Now through June 30 her adoption fee is 50% off.
With a name like Valentino, we aren’t surprised that this kitty is loving, charming and debonair. A one-year-old Domestic Shorthair Mix with black and white tuxedo markings that show how dapper he can really be, this little cat will quickly become your leading man. Now through June 30 his adoption fee is 50% off!
Dallas Pets Alive! received an overstock of kittens this Spring, and we’re bursting at the seams. We need to clear out our inventory of existing cats to make way for the new models, who are quite literally climbing the walls! 50% Adoption Fees on Certified Pre-Owned Cats! If you’re in the market for a cat, […]
“Marissa volunteered to co-chair our Annual Pup Crawl this year (on top of her other DPA duties), an even that is complicated and an important part of our budget. She has done a wonderful job navigating the ups and downs of event planning and doing so with a positive attitude and professionalism. I have enjoyed working with her on one of my favorite DPA events and I look forward to see her in action this weekend at our biggest Pup Crawl yet!” — Leslie Sans, Executive Director for Dallas Pets Alive!
“Adam and Mary have been fosters with DPA for a little over 2 years. They are very open-minded individuals who tend to go for the dogs that are overlooked in the shelter environment. There are many times where Adam and Mary are willing to open their home to a dog that wasn’t even on our radar. They are the types of people who truly act upon the idea that no dog is left behind, regardless of how they may show in a shelter environment. Not only are they great fosters, but they are all around fantastic people and we are so lucky to have them on the DPA team!” — Stefanie Steiner, Foster Director, Dallas Pets Alive!
RAFIKI, the prophetic character from The Lion King movie who heals wounds and gives sage advice to adventurous cats, might look at his DPA namesake and smile knowingly. He would certainly want to find this kitten a home where he could grow into his destiny. While it’s clear to us at DPA that our young Domestic Shorthair/Red Tabby Mix has come through some heroic battles, as we look into the future, we see a loving permanent home for a very cute kitty!
There have been a lot of changes happening at Dallas Animal Services (DAS) over the past six months and the staff and our fellow rescue partners are working their tails off to get better and save more lives. I think it’s important that we start addressing some shifts in our culture so we can meet the needs of DAS right now. DAS is not the same DAS it was a year ago. A pride point for me has always been our flexibility, and this is a time where we are going to need to shift our thinking and approach a bit from years past.
