Positive Alternatives to Shelter Surrender (PASS)

If you still need help, DPA’s Positive Alternatives to Shelter Surrender (PASS) program helps Dallas citizens keep their pets in their homes and out of the shelters by providing free medical, training and temporary boarding assistance to Dallas residents in need. By decreasing owner surrender intake at Dallas Animal Services, we help reduce euthanasia rates.

Due to limited funding, participation on your part is required during the entire process.  We will work with you to determine and implement the best solution for you and your pet.
