DPA’s Pawsome Person: May Volunteer Spotlight

DPA’s Pawsome Person: May Volunteer Spotlight

“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!

DPA’s Pawsome People: May Foster Spotlight

DPA’s Pawsome People: May Foster Spotlight

“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!

DPA’s Cat of the Month – May: Meet RAFIKI

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!  

A Letter from Our Executive Director Leslie Sans

A Letter from Our Executive Director Leslie Sans

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.

A Letter from Laz

I know it’s raining today, and that’s kind of lame, but I have some good news! My friends at Preston Road Animal Hospital said I could come in for a free re-check and weight update, so Foster Mom took me this afternoon. Guess what they said? They said that, not only do I not have to be in my crate so much anymore, but I’m finally at a healthy weight, and I’m clear to start coming off my anti-anxiety meds! My allergy problems have cleared up, too!
