North Texas Giving Day 2020: Calling All Superhumans!

Our pets are there for us no matter what life brings our way. They see us as Superhumans at our lowest lows and our highest highs. That feeling of unconditional love is what having a pet is all about.

Being the Superhumans our pets think we are is such a worthy goal! Just imagine a world in which we all aspire to be that Superhuman masquerading as an ordinary person. Dallas Pets Alive! understands the greatness of these amazing Superhumans because we could not do our lifesaving work without each and every one of them!

This year we are celebrating the many Superhumans that it takes to save the lives of homeless animals in North Texas.

Our North Texas Giving Day goal is to raise $70,000. That’s an ambitious amount (even by Superhero standards) we know we can meet our goal with your help!

$30,000 Donation Match

A group of amazing Superhuman DPA donors has pledged to match the first $30,000 in North Texas Giving Day gifts to Dallas Pets Alive! This means if you donate $100, our generous donors will match your donation 1:1, and your donation will actually be $200! Early Giving starts September 1, so donate early to make sure your gift is matched!

So this North Texas Giving Day (September 17), be the person your pet thinks you are by giving to DPA! (Yes, you can wear a Superhuman cape if you’d like!)

Since 2012, DPA has taken huge steps to reimagine the way North Texas does rescue. We focus on rescuing healthy and treatable pets in North Texas at the greatest risk of being euthanized; reducing owner surrender through our Positive Alternatives to Shelter Surrender (PASS) program; and opening shelter kennel space by transporting pets to partners throughout North America in need of adoptable animals. Our vision is to help every homeless animal find a home and make North Texas a No-Kill region.

How do we do all of this? With a team of Superhuman volunteers, of course!
