A Letter from Leslie: Rusty Update

A Letter from Leslie: Rusty Update

I wanted to take a moment to let our supporters know that Rusty is doing as well as we could possibly expect given the circumstances. Unfortunately, we have not seen any movement within the court system in months, which, I know, can be frustrating. I’m right there with all of you, wondering why we can’t […]

July 2018 DPA Leadership Spotlight

Meet Meredith Jones, Dallas Pets Alive!’s Medical Assistant Director! She makes sure all of the pets in our program are getting the medical care they need in order to get healthy, stay healthy and ultimately find their forever homes. It takes a special person with the right blend of compassion, patience and organization to hold down this role, and Meredith is that and so much more. (She’s also a rockstar foster mama!) We’re incredibly thankful for her dedication to our mission.

DPA’s Pawsome People: July 2018 Foster Spotlight

DPA’s Pawsome People: July 2018 Foster Spotlight

“I had the privilege of on-boarding Kasey as a foster when she first applied to volunteer with DPA. I remember having the most candid conversation with her – she was not afraid to ask questions, talk about her fears of being a foster, and absorb any and all information I was throwing her way. By the end of that conversation, she already had a foster in mind and picked him up shortly thereafter. 2 years later and Kasey’s enthusiasm for our mission, these animals and her overall passion for rescue has not diminished in the slightest. Kasey continues to pull the dogs that are overlooked in the shelter – large dogs, bully breeds, major medical cases, the works! She doesn’t discriminate though and also helps by fostering kittens through our TNR program! When she is not working her full time job, managing the other full time role of a mom, caring for her own animals or full time foster, she is helping out as a temp foster, offering transport to and from adoption events and vet appointment and provides her wisdom as a seasoned rescue volunteer. We are SO lucky to have Kasey on this team!” – Stefanie Steiner, Dallas Pets Alive! Foster Director 

DPA’s Pawsome People: June Foster Spotlight

DPA’s Pawsome People: June Foster Spotlight

“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!
