Rehome Your Pet

Do you need help with your pet?

We recommend that you first check out these resources that are available in Dallas to help owners with their pet problems.

Still need help?

Positive Alternatives to Shelter Surrender (PASS) is a program provided by Dallas Pets Alive! to aid people in finding new homes for their pets or to assist people in keeping their pets in their current homes.

The PASS program was created to help Dallas citizens find resources to keep their pets or pets they have found, out of the shelter system. We have a variety of ways we can help you help your pet. These include rehoming resources, low cost medical options and behavioral resources. We are excited to offer these resources to Dallas to help keep animals in their home and thereby decreasing intake at local shelters.

We are a nonprofit organization fully run by volunteers with limited funding to help owners rehome their pets. Participation on your part is required during the process; however, we offer a positive alternative to kill shelters. We will work together with you to determine and implement the best solution for you and your pet. Thank you for caring enough to try and keep your pet out of the shelter.

Contact our PASS Hotline at (for the fastest response) or try calling 214-444-9372. If calling, please leave an email address that we can contact you with as well as your name and phone number. We will do our best to respond within 24-48 hours.

A special thank you to The Dallas Foundation for their support of the PASS Program and Dallas Pets Alive.
