Foster a dog this February! Help DAS dogs catch a ride on the "Love Train" by being a temporary foster this February. We need to find fosters for 50 large dogs! Pick out a furry friend February 15 - 25 to take home for a little extra love! You'll return your foster at the end of February so they can hop on board our next transport or come back for our next big adoption event.

NO ORIENTATION REQUIRED! Our staff will go over everything you need to know for your foster before you leave. To get started: Just stop by our main location (1818 N. Westmoreland Rd.) and tell a staff member you would like to be a foster for "Foster the Love"!

NEWS: DAS Premiers "The Climb to Dallas90" Video


Catch a glimpse of Dallas Animal Services' climb from a 13% live release rate in 2007 to exceeding 90% for four months in a row earlier this year! This critical transformation has been the result of years of hard work from animal lovers throughout the community and though there is still plenty of work to be done, we want to say THANK YOU to everyone -- adopters, fosters, volunteers, staff, rescue partners, advocates, elected officials, and donors -- who have made an impact on this climb. You are the heart of Dallas90.

NEWS: DAS' Longest Resident, Rudy, Adopted After 7 Year Stay


DAS' beloved mascot, Rudy, was recently adopted by our partners at VCA Animal Hospitals after more than 7 years of loyal service to the organization. He will be enjoying his "retirement" by educating VCA clients about adoption and spreading the word about the free veterinary care offered by VCA to DAS adopters as part of their Healthy Start Program! Rudy is passing the torch to two new DAS mascots - the D90 Duo.

NEWS: Dallas One of First Cities Certified as a "Better City for Pets"

BetterCities.jpgDAS is honored to share that Dallas has been chosen as one of the first 25 cities in the country to be certified by Mars' Better Cities for Pets program! This certification recognizes the cities' commitment to improving the lives of pets and the people who love them as well as the progress made in sheltering, parks, business, and housing. 

Did You Know?: "Long Term" Residents Available for Free Adoption

In an effort to get extra attention for our long-term residents, DAS waives the adoption on all pets that have been available for adoption for more than two weeks. At DAS our pets don't have a time limit, but the longer a pet is in our care, the higher their stress level and risk of illness; so our main goal is to get long term residents into a foster or a great forever home! 

Every day, dozens of dogs and cats qualify for this free adoption rate. How can you tell? When you're here, look for "FREE ADOPTION" on their kennel card! 

News: DAS Wins Innovation Showdown and $200,000 Grant

DAS  received a $200,000 investment in our ground-breaking Dallas90 Shelter Service System app, which will help DAS improve our customer service to increase our adoptions and decrease euthanasia for space.

DAS was one of three finalists to compete in the Showdown and received the largest investment.

News: City Replaces Pet Licensing with Mandatory Microchip

microchip.jpgDAS no longer offers a pet licensing program. Instead, all dogs and cats in the City of Dallas are now required to be microchipped. Not sure if your pet is microchipped? All pets adopted from DAS and most local adoption groups are microchipped. Your veterinarian or any shelter can verify if your pet is microchipped.

A mircochip is small computer chip about the size of a grain of rice that is placed under your pet's skin using a needle (similar to a vaccination) where it remains throughout life. The chip contains a unique identification number that can be located with a special scanner; this number is linked to your contact information through a mircochip database. It is not a GPS tracker and you must update your information whenever it changes in order for the chip to remain effective.

Microchipped dogs have an 238% higher rate of returning home while cats have a 2000% higher rate! 

DAS can mircochip your pet for only $10 during our normal Lost & Found hours.
