NEWS: Adopt ONLINE!
After more than a year in development, Dallas Animal Services has launched the first phase of its Dallas90 Shelter Service System (D90SSS). The system allows adopters to complete the entire adoption process from their smart device and includes improved pet search functions and the ability to save favorite pets.
Last year, DAS was awarded a $200,000 investment during the 2019 Innovation Showdown -- a collaborative project from
Petco Foundation, the
Jackson Galaxy Project and the nation's top animal welfare organizations to develop D90SSS. We encourage you to check out this first phase of the project and explore this new virtual way to adopt your new best friend. Click here to check it out!
At this time, the only non-staff permitted inside the building are those who believe we have their missing pet and approved volunteers but you can be a VIRTUAL lifesaver! Become an adopter or become a foster ONLINE today!
NEWS: DAS Joins Innovative Coalition
Dallas Animal Services joins a national coalition of 13 animal shelters called Human Animal Support Services (HASS), which is aimed at keeping pets in homes. As a pilot shelter, DAS will implement a new animal welfare organizational model that recognizes pets and people as family-units and works to keep them together. Click here to learn more.
NEWS: How to help DAS pets - SAVE LIVES while social distancing!
As the COVID-19 situation continues to unfold, we will be keeping everyone up to date if there are new operational developments or developments related to COVID-19 and pets. We have altered both field and shelter operations to minimize human contact for residents while remaining committed to both public safety and lifesaving.
DAS Animal Services Officers will continue to respond to urgent, high-priority calls including sick or injured animals and animals that threaten public safety. Calls for services can be placed with 311.
Currently, the only non-staff permitted to enter the building will be individuals
who believe DAS has their lost pet and approved volunteers.
You can still help us save lives while social distancing by:

AN UPDATE ON COMMUNITY CATS: DAS is NOT taking in healthy community cats at this time; we are ONLY taking in emergency cases, including kittens. DAS considers sick or injured cats and kittens and
confirmed orphaned bottle-baby kittens (not weaned or eating solids) to be emergencies. We are not taking in healthy moms and litters, healthy kittens that are weaned and eating solids or "gruel" or bottle baby kittens that are not confirmed as orphaned. Any kittens with a mother should be monitored until 8 weeks of age rather than brought to the shelter. For more information regarding nursing or orphaned kittens, please click here.
