Unlike pets, people can donate to charities. Unlike people, pets love unconditionally. The truth is that pets love us so much that they would donate everything to us, if they could.

Why shouldn’t we do the same for them?

Your dog would donate to your knee surgery fund, if he knew what knees were (and had opposable thumbs). This year, our goal is to raise $50,000 to rescue and save the animals who would do everything could for you. With your help, we can meet our goal.

3. Create a FUNdraising Page

Toast the pets who would do anything for you by joining us for laughs, libations, and loveable (and adoptable) pups!

September 14, 7-9 p.m.: Dallas Comedy House has gone to the dogs! Our pups may not have opposable thumbs, but their comedic timing is on point! DCH has paired up several talented comedians with adoptable DPA pups for barkworthy stand up that will make you BOL (Bark Out Loud). Proceeds from the event will be donated to Dallas Pets Alive!

September 19, 5-9 p.m.: Join us for our North Texas Giving Day celebration at Community Beer Company. Community will donate $1 for every beer sold during the party, and we’ll have raffle prizes, a specialty beer, adoptable pups, food trucks and more!

$20,000 Donation Match

A family of amazing donors has pledged to match the first $20,000 in donations to Dallas Pets Alive! on North Texas Giving Day. For example, if you donate $100 our generous donors will match your donation 1:1, and your donation will actually be $200!

Dallas Pets Alive! has been changing the way North Texas thinks about animal rescue since 2012. Thanks to the generosity from supporters like you on North Texas Giving Day (and throughout the year), thousands of healthy and treatable shelter pets who would have otherwise been euthanized are now in loving, forever homes.
