Adopting from DAS

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the COVID-19 emergency, adoptions will be processed ONLINE ONLY using our new adoption process system below. Our shelter is currently CLOSED to the public for adoptions. If you have additional questions, please email dasadopt@dallascityhall.com.

Pets are currently FREE to adopt until further notice!

How to Adopt from DAS:

1. Browse adoptable pets. 

2. Click on a pet you'd like to adopt. (If you'd like to keep track of your favorites or you are ready to adopt, you can easily create a profile!)

3. Complete the adoption questionnaire for that pet. (You'll be prompted to set up a profile so that we have your information).

4. Check your email! Once the questionnaire is complete, you'll receive an email with the next steps. Our team will review your information within 24 hours and will schedule a tele-adoption appointment and go over pet pick-up instructions.

All pets adopted from DAS will leave the building spayed or neutered, microchipped, and current on vaccinations. When picking up your new pet, please bring your driver's license or other state-issued photo ID.

PLEASE NOTE: Our adoption system does work best if you're using Google Chrome as your browser.

You can also view additional pets available for adoption through our Home-To-HomeTM  partnership here.
